Greetings Pinball Fans,
Today we are very excited to release The Hobbit Pinball playfield in its entirety!
Joe Balcer says, "The game is all about Smaug and his extreme interaction with the player. Creating The Hobbit journey with a pinball layout is an awesome challenge that I have totally enjoyed putting together. Can't wait to start shooting a full game!"
As a reminder, as of September 1st the price of The Hobbit LE will increase $500 to $8000.00. We ask that you are current on the payment schedule for The Hobbit by 8/31/13. Those who are not current will see a $500 increase in the price of their game after 9/1/13, making their game $8000.
The factory is humming along and pumping out LE WOZ's. We are very happy with current production numbers and are confident those numbers will increase as the months go on.
WOZ Programmer, Keith Johnson visited JJP Headquarters yesterday. Keith along with Ted Estes continue to update WOZ code which is available for download to those people who already have their machines. Every game that leaves the factory is loaded with the most up to date code available at that time.
