    Harry Potter pinball

    Wonder if J. K. Rowling will license an official table in future?

    Until then, this is how far one has come in VPX, and I think its been done by one person which is rather impressive since they can't earn anything from it.

    It's frequently been reported that Rowling has no interest in it at all. She considers pinball to be associated with sketchy things like dive bars and gambling.

    And yet a quick search on Amazon produces these shot glasses...



    I know, you said nothing about drinking, just dive bars. But still, the Harry Potter brand gets slapped on everything, but pinball is where she draws a line in the sand? The Tolkein estate didn't take issue, and they are notoriously tight with LotR related stuff. The one thing I'll grant is there hasn't been an abundance of Potter video games, has there? Off the top of my head I can actually only think of the LEGO games.
    I'm just sayin'

    EA did some games in the 2000’s around the first 4 or 5 movies, and a quidditch game. There’s a mobile game - hogwarts mystery that’s been out for about a year plus another one coming from Niantic, (publishers of Pokémon go). If you’re willing to let Ea do games, or a freemium mobile model, a Stern pinball isn’t nearly as far up the evil scale as those.

    Its in beta now, from a bit of googling I think you have to join a facebook group to be able to download it.

    Its still in beta and hasn’t been released officially yet. The same group did one for Stranger Things not too long ago. Really awesome.
