The lights are on
Bally's Twilight Zone pinball table is one of the most beloved pinball tables of all time, and Pinball Arcade developer FarSight Studios is trying to fund the digital creation of the table via Kickstarter.
FarSight is seeking $55,000 to cover the licensing costs of the table (not including development costs) so it can bring it to Pinball Arcade on the game's various platforms. The developer also says that any overflow of money will be put towards digitizing other tables such as Star Trek: The Next Generation.
For more info such as the tier rewards, check out FarSight's Kickstarter entry. $10 gets you the table as a reward – except on Xbox 360, due to Microsoft constraints. The table will be available on Xbox 360, just not as a Kickstarter reward.

i used to have a great pinball PC game. looking back, i have no idea why i played it so much. i don't really understand the allure of pinball.
They had one of these tables at my local bowling alley, can't wait to see how it turns out.
Cool if your a fan of pinball or Twilight Zone like me.When I was younger I use to work at a movie theatre and they had a small arcade.My coworkers and I would spend hours after work and would always play Star Trek next gen pinball.So I would be all for that one to be made digital too.
Ah Twilight Zone, the only show that boggled the mind in black and white
I'm totally down with this. I've been wanting the actual physical Twilight Zone pinball table for years, but it's so damn expensive. $5,000 is kind of a lot of money for me right now. I think I may have to support these guys.
Thank you for bringing attention to this. A good number of my friends and I prefer Pinball Arcade over Pinball FX2. It's for serious fans, no doubt!
Pinball FX 2 is great, but if you want an authentic pinball experience with expertly crafted recreations of real tables, there is nothing better then Pinball Arcade. It's a real challenge like the real tables are/were.

If it comes out on the 3DS, I'll donate.
