Silverball Studios today announced that a completely free PC download of one of the original Pro Pinball games; Big Race USA, will be available only on its Kickstarter page. The award winning title, originally released in 1998 has remained a firm favourite in the series and has been cited as one of the best pinball games ever made.
In addition to this, the studio has announced that all backers, that have pledged over $2 at the end of the campaign and on success of reaching or exceeding the target, will receive free PC download versions of two more of the tables in the Pro Pinball series – widely regarded as the best pinball series ever made – including the critically acclaimed Fantastic Journey and the fan favourite Timeshock!
The campaign for the revival and remastering of the Pro Pinball series has gathered an enormous amount of support from pinball and games fans alikein its first week on the Kickstarter platform, and the studio has decided to offer further rewards to backers of the project. The campaign has a target of $400,000 in order to meet the promises of revival of the series with a brand new ultimate Pro Pinball table and the remastering of the four original classic Pro Pinball tables for PC, Mac, iOS and XBLA.
“We have been delighted by all of the pledges, comments and words of encouragement we have received since the project launched, and because of this we want to offer something amazing to those people for free. The original tables have an almost a cult following and we want to make sure, for all those who may have missed the series, that everyone can experience one of the original tables.” said Adrian Barritt, CEO of Silverball Studios
If the project reaches its $400,000 target, everyone who has backed the project with a pledge of $2 or more will instantly receive the further two exclusive downloads for free; as the team are confident that the remastered tables will blow everyone out of the water.
“We wanted to make sure that our backers received an instant thanks for getting behind us. Unlike other games projects where your money may be taken and it is months, or even years before you get anything to play, we wanted to make sure our backers had these amazing originals to enjoy while we get to work remastering them for the new platforms.” concluded Barritt
Silverball Studios have also partnered with pinball legend Pat Lawlor to design the first new Pro Pinball table in this series. The likes of which, it is promised, have never been seen before. The table’s design, which is yet to be finalised as fans will be asked for their vote on the theme, will be designed in such a way that leave the team open to making it into a real-life table.
