The making of a pinball game

Here’s an excellent walk through about how a pinball machine is made! –

The following is an unabridged version of a short presentation that Pat Lawlor Design did at Pinball Expo 2001, showing the history of the MONOPOLY Pinball project from start to end.

MONOPOLY Pinball was a special project in a lot of ways, especially because it was 4 guys working outside the confines of a pinball company designing and prototyping a game from the start almost all the way through to the end.

It was new territory for almost everyone at both companies, and after letting so many other pinball projects go by undocumented we were determined to make this one count.
