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
(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.
Pro Pinball: Timeshock! The ULTRA Edition
is expected to arrive sometime in the first half of 2014.
