THIS WEEK IN PINBALL – 3/13/23: The Godfather, Final Resistance, Pulp Fiction, and MORE

The Scoop

The Godfather Pinball by Jersey Jack Pinball Revealed and Streamed

The Godfather was revealed, shipped, and streamed all this week. Jersey Jack Pinball had another amazing game announcement and was able to get games to locations and streamers in a matter of days after reveal. Check out the following streams:

JJP has decided to end its relationship with Scorbit, the connectivity platform currently available on all JJP machines. Over 10,000 connected JJP machines will no longer have access to the features of Scorbit. The assumption is that JJP might be working on their own connectivity platform.

Final Resistance Pinball Announced by Multimorphic

Multimorphic surprised us with their new full game module for the P3 platform this week. This is the Scott Danesi game that was teased earlier in a similar cyberpunk style as Total Nuclear Annihilation. Danesi did an interview and stream with Kevin Manne from Buffalo Pinball where we learned the following:

  • There will be a soundtrack release

  • Not a continuation of TNA but in the same cyberpunk style

  • Danesi describes the story behind the playfield layout

  • He tried to make a game that looks and feels like a traditional pinball layout but with just some of the P3 tech advantages sprinkled in

  • Has static inserts on the screen but there are animations around it

  • Discusses the drop target lock

  • Johnny Crap did the artwork

  • Danesi says the ruleset is not super deep but deeper than TNA.  It has traditional wizard modes.

  • He plans to take a break after working on this game. He does want to do another home brew in the future.
