    UPDATE FarSight Looking To Bring A Creepy, Kooky, Mysterious And Spooky...And Altogether Ooky Table To The Pinball Arcade!!!


    The long awaited table that Pinball Arcade fans have been clamoring for since the announcement of The Pinball Arcade is just a Kickstarter away from joining FarSight Studio's ever expanding library of classic pinball tables...and it's just around the corner!

    That's right...Bally's 1992 The Addams Family is within arm's reach and FarSight will need the help of the pinball community more than ever to make this once pipe dream become a reality.

    FarSight officially announced the following on Friday, July 11th :

    "If you are thinking... "Don't tease us any more with the Addams Family™ back glass!" Guess what? We aren't. We've agreed upon terms with all of the major licenses and clearances we need to FINALLY do a Kickstarter to recreate the highly anticipated ADDAMS FAMILY™ pinball table!!! We have been working on this for a long time, and it's finally becoming a reality! We expect to launch the Kickstarter this summer, so get ready fans! We will need your help!"

    With that said, the time has come once again for the pinball community to pull together to help bring the #1 rated and best-selling pinball table of all time to The Pinball Arcade for all generations to enjoy. Get ready...the time is near!

    UPDATE Help Bring THE ADDAMS FAMILY To The Pinball Arcade!


    Help FarSight bring The Addams Family pinball table to game consoles and mobile devices for a whole new generation to enjoy!

    FarSight wants to digitize the most popular pinball table of all time! The Addams Family table was released by Williams in 1992 and is unquestionably one of the greatest pinball tables in the history of pinball with over 20,000 units sold (More than any table ever!). It was designed by the legendary Pat Lawlor and Larry DeMar (who also designed Twilight Zone, Banzai Run and Funhouse). This table was integrated more deeply to the movie than any other licensed pinball table of its time. The Addams Family featured the first ever optical target bank (in the bookcase), and the "Thing Flip" which was the first time a pinball tables flippers could be controlled by the tables CPU. When the "Thing Flip" is active the table can actually make shots for you. Another great feature is "The Power" which causes magnets to dramatically effect the direction of the ball on the playfield. It's one of FarSight's favorite tables ever!

    FarSight has succeeded in negotiating all of the licenses they need to digitize The Addams Family and bring it to The Pinball Arcade. Unfortunately, there are several licenses involved : in addition to the Williams license, they need a license for The Addams Family, the actor likeness of Raul Julia (Gomez Addams) and Anjelica Huston (Morticia Addams), on the backglass and play field, and the right to use the actor voiceovers during gameplay. When FarSight added up the costs of each required license and calculate what they’d have to charge for the table, they've concluded that The Addams Family is just not commercially viable. The more they charge for the table the fewer people will be able to buy it - and their goal is to expose as many people as possible to this great table, not just a select few.

    Here’s where you come in! The licenses FarSight has secured for The Addams Family will cost $101,000 (and that’s just for the licenses - FarSight will cover all of the development expenses themselves). Thanks to the amazing generosity of pinball fans throughout the world, their previous Kickstarter project for the Terminator 2 : Judgement Day pinball table raised $3,360 more than they needed for the Terminator 2 : Judgment Day licenses and they're applying this towards the license costs of The Addams Family. If FarSight can raise the remaining $97,640 they'll be able to digitize the Addams Family and preserve one of the greatest pinball tables of all time. Also, if The Addams Family Kickstarter raises more than the goal, FarSight will be able to digitize other licensed tables as well.

    With that said, the time has come once again for the pinball community to pull together to help bring the #1 rated and best-selling pinball table of all time to The Pinball Arcade for all generations to enjoy and you can do so by pledging HERE.

    UPDATE FarSight Studios' The Addams Family Kickstarter UPDATE #1 - Amazing first day!!!


    "Amazing First Day!

    Coming to a close of our first full day and we are already 33% funded with with over $33,000 raised! If this momentum keeps up, we can introduce some super awesome stretch goals! We are overwhelmed by the generosity of the fans, and are very excited to be on our way to digitizing the amazing Addams Family pinball table. With our strong start, things are looking good, but we aren't there yet! We still have a long way to go, so let's all try to think of creative ways to get this out there!

    P.S. We designed an image (here) to be a profile picture for those of you that want to sport some Addams Family on your social media pages.

    Addams Family Tournament

    We just launched the Mobile and PS3/Vita tournament! From the main menu in the game select "Tournament" to get started. We had a hiccup in our plans to make this tournament completely exclusive, so the tournament will be open to everyone, but we will only be offering prizes to the top ten that meet the $15 pledge requirement. everyone is welcome to compete, but only backers will be counted. The tournament being public might even help the cause. :-)"
