Nothing to lose - everything to gain!

The Pro Pinball ® Kickstarter hope to attract more backers with a no lose offer!

With a mere 2 days on the clock Silverball Studio promises to reward backers regardless of the final outcome of the campaign

Oxfordshire, UK. October 2nd 2012 . Silverball Studios today announced that with only 2 days until the conclusion of the Kickstarter campaign; for the no-compromise revival and rebuilding of the legendary Pro Pinball ® series, they are going to make sure the loyal fans and backers of the project so far still get a reward for getting behind the project, even if the Kickstarter is not a success.

The studio will still look to produce the series even if the Kickstarter fails to reach a positive conclusion; as the fans have convinced them that the games are wanted. The project to revive and remaster the hugely popular games will still go ahead with a revised time frame, although the studio are still hopeful the money can be raised. " When we launched this campaign about a month ago we had 0 backers. We now have over 1000 backers whom on average have pledged a category beating $113 each! Thank you, each and every one of you! Regardless of the outcome of this Kickstarter we are determined to bring Pro Pinball back. If we don't hit the target itwill take us longer to do than we would’ve liked and have a few less bells and whistles. But the bottom line is over 1000 of you want more Pro Pinball and so do we!" Said Adrian Barritt, CEO of Silverball Studios 

The studio have made the unprecedented move to still offer many of the rewards to those who have backed the project, even if the project doesn’t hit its Kickstarter goal.

"As a thank you to those who have pledged and supported us, and in the event Pro Pinball does go ahead without Kickstarter, we pledge, to all of our backers, that many of the fantastic rewards on offer will still come your way!" Added Barritt.

In the event the campaign is unsuccessful through Kickstarter and the Pro Pinball series is still Revived or Remastered, the studio will still honour ALL the following rewards in the tiers for those who have backed it so far:

·         Wall Papers

·         Thanks on the Webpage

·         Digital Manuals

·         Digital Soundtracks

·         Insignias

·         VIP Forum Access

·         Glass Off Mode

·         Beta Access

·         Thanks in the Games

·         Custom Dot-Matrix Sequences

·         Initials in High Score tables

·         Special thanks on the Playfields

This unparalleled move by the studio will be the first time a Kickstarter project has offered so many of the rewards to backers, regardless of success. The studio hope that move will demonstrate the gratitude it has for the current backers and also to boost pledges as people really do have everything to gain; if the project is successful backers will get all the rewards in their chosen tier and the project will come to life - making 5 new games, if it is not then they still get many of the rewards  for FREE.

The campaign, if fully funded, will see the development team create a brand new ultimate Pro Pinball ® table, designed by the legendary Pat Lawlor as well as fully re-creating from scratchthe four original Pro Pinball ® tables for various platforms, including PC, Mac, iOS, Android, PS3, PSVita and XBLA, to name but a few.
