TILT: The Battle to Save Pinball from the Maker Shed is on sale now as part of our Spring-cleaning sale. It’s a really interesting 2-DVD set that includes seven hours of extras, including interviews with industry greats and a pinball factory tour.
One of the great maker tales of the game industry. In 1998, Williams was the world’s biggest pinball manufacturer, but they were in trouble. Two legendary designers took their “crazy” idea out of the company and into a garage; the result, “Pinball 2000,” became a sensation… until Williams mysteriously pulled the plug. This grass-roots effort to innovate inside corporate America will fascinate any student of technology, design, or business.
