The time has finally come for me to create a Pinball Machine of my own design from the ground up. I will be posting progress updates here.
So, a little bit of overall info about the project… I will be making a single level Classic Bally style game that will have fully updated electronics. The P3-ROC system will be used throughout this project. I plan to use integrating the existing displays, but may upgrade them to Alphanumeric to make communication with the player a bit easier. RGB LEDs will be used along with fully controllable GI.
As for the theme, this is where it gets interesting. The player will assume the role of the antihero where he/she will be trying to take down as many nuclear reactors as possible in a post-apocalyptic world. The player will need to destroy backup power generators, boron rods, coolant reserves, and battle the reactor core to meltdown. I currently do not have a name set in stone for the game, so I am open to suggestions, let me know what you think.
Below are a few pictures of the current status of the project. It looks like I am much further than I am. The lower playfield is CNC’d so I can start experimenting with the physical layout.
