About

About this project

I have been interested in game development for many years. Recently, I had the opportunity to meet a developer team with whom we will attempt to create a successful project. This team has been programming and producing many games and applications of different types for over ten years. It has been a dream of mine to design and create our own game, so we have decided to take the plunge and start off with the making of a pinball table.

Many generations have grown up playing pinball. In the electronic age, you do not see the old flipper tables much anymore, but rather computerized versions of such. In various different platforms, pinball continues to be a very popular game. Car racing games are also extremely popular, so we have decided to combine these two platforms.

The Heat Race Pinball is such a game in which one can unlock levels revealing car racing challenges. After unlocking them, they can also be played separately and with an online rank list allowing one to compete with players all over the world. 

 As the first layouts were made 7-8 years ago, we have created a physics editor, which made it possible to put the table geometry together, and by importing this to the Java based game being able to test it. This was a very long procedure of this project development, but we had successfully created an enjoyable physics geometry. Based on these, that how we used it, to recreate the 3D version of physics. Around the spectacular 3D elements, there is a simpler bumping geometry, so it can be run faster on a weaker hardware.

 Table logic

After making the geometry definitive on the table, then it was possible to find the right place for the different switches, lights and sensors. The logic of the table, are the very well known combos, but we have also put in many new ideas, which can be linked to car racing.

The specialty of the game, that it contains also two mini-games, that after starting pinball, it can be reached from the menu to launch the mini-game. There are two types of it. One speeding and another street racing mini-game.

We have designed a few different cars. All of them are similar to an already existing car, but redesigned to our taste.

Pictures of the Cars

 Street Race

We see the game in top view, from a forward looking camera. Car road with many lanes, with lots of traffic, and we have to drive in slalom to the finish in a given time. Through the game we find turbo icons to pick up with the car, and having a bigger chance to win. But if we crash into other cars, our speed slows down.

 Speeding race

This game is built on the legal speeding races. Here the target is to use the gears to its maximal performance, to speed down the car racing next to us. As we win more and more races, it enables to have faster and better cars, to prove that we are unbeatable. Beginning from the simplest street car to a dragster to try ourselves in the racing life.

The time results can be compared on an online rang-list, and being able to play with anybody from the world.

 The game will be available for iOS and Android devices, but if we collect $15.000, it will be designed and created for PC and Mac systems too!!

Risks and challenges

The design and programming required to successfully produce an exciting and interactive version of our idea has been cost prohibitive. We have had these ideas and actually the plans for successful creation of the game for many years. Now, with the availability of Kickstarter, the ability to raise capital to successfully complete the project makes it a much more likely success.
Our initial plan was to develop this game for Java telephones, but lack of time and budget, we have suspended the project. Now we hope, that with the help of Kickstarter we get the chance again to restart this project in a new modern way. With designing of the table, we have to take in count, that at first hand it is developed for mobile platforms, so we had to make the table’s geometry as simple as possible, but still leaving it exciting and spectacular to play with. The first layouts were focusing on the physical geomtry. The goal is, whereever we shoot the ball it is going to bump into something and to have action happening for sure.

Everyone on the team is incredibly excited about the possibilities this Kickstarter will unlock for our incredibly new project. We’ve long dreamed of being able to bring Pinball back. If you share this dream, if you’ve always wanted to watch and influence the game design process from start to finish, this is your chance. Don't miss IT!
