Yes, digital pinball is a thing, and it is so much better than that crappy pinball game that came on your old version of windows. The new kids, Pinball Labs, have appeared with a stunning example of virtual pinball creation and gameplay.
I’ve played around with virtual pinball a bit with the old simulator called visualpinball, but it has been aging for some time. This new 3d approach allows for much more fluid constuction and man, the unreal engine really makes this look droolworthy.
Right now, they’re doing a kickstarter to get off the ground. I have no doubt that there are enough pinball fans out there to make this happen.
