Thank you, and good night.

Sadly, we didn't make our Kickstarter goal, but that's alright. A few new opportunities have presented themselves along the way, as we generated quite a bit of press and attention.

Thanks to everyone who chipped in to back our project, helped spread the word, or otherwise encouraged our vision.

Definitely stay tuned to http://TiltWarning.com

More to come, for sure.

Peace.

-Dave

ps- if you're interested in a 3"x5" Pinball Soup sticker, as seen in our Kickstarter avatar, feel free to msg me through Kickstarter here with your address and I'll get a couple headed your way as a sign of appreciation.

Video Interview with Jeremy Fish OR Why Art Shows Are Boring and How Pinball Can Help Change That

While art can often be too much about the scene itself, a custom pinball arcade installation has the ability to absorb its audience in a shared world where action becomes the key in conversation, with a sole(soul?) focus on play.

"There is no art, things are made for use" Antonin Artaud, The Theater and Its Double,1938

They made a documentary about our inspiration and teammate, Wade Krause!

Filmmaker Anna Newman presents:

Wade Krause: Pinball Artist

A short documentary profiling master screenprinter, craftsman and Pinball Artist, Wade Krause.

From his crowded workshop in a rural California rodeo town, artist Wade Krause designs and creates everything pinball. Unwilling to let pinball die at the hand of video games, Wade crafts high end restorations of antique pinball machines and collaborates with pop artists like Dirty Donny on custom art games. Wade is one of the leading craftsman of New Pinball; enter his mad scientist pinball lab and see what is behind the multicolored backglass.

Screenings are upcoming in San Jose, CA, USA as part of the Cinequest Film Festival.

  • Friday, March 8 6:45 pm (most cast/crew are coming to this screening)
  • Saturday, March 9 1:30 pm

If you're in the area, definitely check it out.
