This just hit Youtube – Jersey Jack Pinball was teasing a big announcement coming soon and here it is, Pat Lawlor, who has designed some of the most memorable and best selling pinball machines ever, is joining the JJP crew. Among those notable games was The Addams Family, Twilight Zone, Funhouse, Whirlwind, and Family Guy/Shrek.
As he says in the announcement video here, he will be making an original pinball machine. I’ve been saying that this is needed for ages and I am excited to see what this will become. I think the obsession of using a license has hindered potential growth in pinball. Licenses can be great but its been obvious for a long time now that the mere addition of a license does not mean instant success ala The Addams Family.
So what are your thoughts about this, excited, neutral, negative? Let’s hear it!
