Pinball Arcade Taking Aim At Terminator 2®
BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif., July 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- FarSight Studios, developer and publisher of the Mobile Game of the Year, the Pinball Arcade have announced the launch of their latest Kickstarter project to preserve a classic pinball table, Terminator 2 Judgment Day®.
One of the most popular tables of all time, Terminator 2 was created by Williams® and sold over 15,000 units in 1991. This table featured a number of pinball innovations. It was the first pinball machine designed with a dot-matrix display, ball firing cannons, and video mode gameplay. Twenty years later, there are fewer and fewer of these classic pinball machines in working order, and that's where FarSight wants to step in.
Following in the footsteps of their successful campaigns to preserve the Twilight Zone and Star Trek: The Next Generation pinball tables, FarSight is looking for fans of pinball and the Terminator movies to help them offset the licensing costs required.
While the cost of producing the actual game will be covered by FarSight, the T2 movie IP and actor rights are going to cost an additional $59,000.
The Kickstarter campaign includes many rewards for backers who help in preserving Terminator 2 for future generations to enjoy. Check out this exciting project at: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1067367405/pinball-arcade-terminator-2-judgment-day?ref=live
Pinball Arcade is currently available for iPhone, iPad, Android, PlayStation3, PSVita, Mac, Xbox 360, Kindle Fire and OUYA. The game will be released later in 2013 for Wii-U, PC / Steam, Windows 8, and PS4.
