Pro Pinball: Timeshock! Kickstarted for XBLA

By litepink, 3 years ago
A successful Kickstarter campaign and subsequent stretch goals has brought us the return of Pro Pinball: Timeshock, or as it will be known when it hits XBLA next year, Pro Pinball: Timeshock! The ULTRA Edition.

The Pro Pinball series was a set of games for the PC, which included The Web (1995), Timeshock! (1997), Big Race USA (1998), and Fantastic Journey (1999), developed by Cunning Developments. Many of the talented folks that worked for Cunning have moved on to Barnstorm Games, developers of such games as Mario Pinball Land and Metroid Prime Pinball which were released on Nintendo handhelds.

Now the developers have their sights set on bringing back all four Pro Pinball games. They're taking baby steps first by releasing Timeshock!, which reached its stretch goal of making it to XBLA. Below you can see a lighting demo video and some work in progress shots of the title.
