Pro Pinball: Timeshock! remade from scratch and taken to ULTIMATE extremes for PC, Mac, iOS and Android!
1,203 backers pledged £49,349 to help bring this project to life.

Linux Stretch Goal Achieved!

Wow! Thanks to the generosity of our Kickstarter and PayPal backers, we've already reached our first stretch goal in less than a day! There will now definitely be a Linux version of Pro Pinball: Timeshock! - The ULTRA Edition, most likely arriving Q1 2014.

If you didn't know, you can keep an eye on the main page which is where we display the latest PayPal total.

We've also added an additional stretch goal since the last update, so if we can raise enough we'll be able to guarantee a PS Vita version too!

Thanks again everybody, please keep spreading the word and let's see how far we can take this!

Ade.

      Vita & Co might be the an ideal supplement, but as it has been mentioned before it is a matter of resources for a small studio. That's why so many independent games are developed parallely for PC, Mac and Linux .The market might be bigger with a certain platform, but you have to have the resources first to develop for it.

      As a Linux user I am very happy to see a Linux version as the first stretch goal, and I'm glad that it's already met. Also hoping for a PS3 version since t has a lot of life left.

      @Mario: 360, PS3 and 3DS make sense from a business viewpoint, but those versions will be inferior versions, compared to the PC version I already supported.

      Vita (best handheld) and PS4 (best nextgen system) are the systems I really would like to be supported. WiiU could be interesting because of the big screen on the pad.

      IMO stretched goals should be something that makes me excited and raise my pledge. All stretched goals that realistically can be reached in one week are mostly useful for the developers and not so much for the PC/Mac users that already pledged. There is no chance to reach 70000 Pounds in one week to reach the Vita version, that would really supplement the PC version.in a reasonable way.

      The Old consoles will be around in the vast majority of household for quite some time even after Xbox one and ps4 release. Financially it is the better decision for the moment to go with the current gen. Also, porting to next gen, once they have a relevant user base also outside of core-gaming early adopters, should be fairly straight forward and hopefully fundable by the revenue generated on current gen (if we make the stretch goals).

      @Jürgen: In my opinion a ps3 is a good platform. Maybe you can afford a ps4 the right day it is out but many people don't, like me. And there are a lot of games I want to play on my ps3. Do you remember when the ps2 was discontinued? Not long ago I think. But I agree that a psvita will be a better choice to start instead ps3, I guess.

      Have you heard about PS4 and Xbox One? Who wants PS3 and 360 versions in 2014? Those systems will disappear from my TV rack very soon.

      A Vita version sounds interesting, but it's impossible to reach 70000 in one week.

      You are going to kill my economy! I can not give more money but I expect other peopel will :D A vita version will be awesome, the best pinball simulation everywhere.

      Ok, take all my money. Upped to 250. I will so regret this. Or not! :)

      You did it! You finally did it. Damn, now I have to up my pledge to get to the Vita version...
