[OMFG] Help Bring ‘The Twilight Zone’ Pinball Machine To The Digital World!

Those of you who follow me on Twitter know I’m not a huge fan of the way Kickstarter is utilized in the film world – I’m not going to get into it right now, but the short end of the stick is that filmmakers should be offering return donations to charities if their projects are successful, IMO – but it is quite different in various other entertainment industries (music and games, just to name a few). That’s just one reason I’m telling you guys about this opportunity. The other, well, I’m a selfish bastard who wants to play “The Twilight Zone” pinball machine on my iPad.

I recently discovered FarSight Studios on my iPad, who is responsible for brining real pinball machines into the digital world. Pinball Arcade, which carries “Theater of Magic,” “Black Hole,” “Tale of the Arabian Nights” and more, is currently available on a wide variety of platforms: the iPhone, iPad, Android phones and tables, the Kindle Fire, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PS Vita, and Macintosh, with versions coming soon for the PC, Nintendo 3DS, and Nintendo Wii U.

While this past week they unleashed the classic “Funhouse” and epic “Cirqus Voltaire,” the company has set their sights on “The Twilight Zone.” The only issue is licensing, and for them to make the game, they’re going to need to recoup their licensing costs pre-development. I just plopped down $10, and if you too want to play one of the greatest pinball machines of all-time on your devices, click here to pledge. There are also widgets and videos inside.

    I love pinball, and the new games are keepin it alive pretty good. I have Pinball FX2 and Pinball Arcade – and its awesome to be able to play the old tables. Looking forward to Twilight Zone, Addams Family, T2, and Fish Tales. I’ve seen ur Tetris skills and have noticed u claim prowess for the silver ball, so if ever you need a championship caliber match, you hit me up on the XBOX360.

    I love pinball, much more than videogames, and have several machines. Its because of this that I just don’t get the point of digital pinball. I just don’t get it. Its like having someone describe a painting to you instead of seeing it, ot being told what a steak tastes like. Its just…second best, not real, a facsimile of something that is awesome. Like communicating on Facebook instead of actually having a real relationship and getting together face to face. Everything these days just seems so fake and intangible.
    Wow, I mean, er…I guess I just really like pinball.
