Multimorphic announces games for the P3

That’s right, games plural as in more than one! As in Lexy Lightspeed plus another full game and three minigames! So is that five games? Or is that 2 games plus 3 half games? Whatever it is, it’s big news from the Multimorphic P3 pinball platform. Also, there is a way to get all five games for free with purchase of the P3. If you have already pre-ordered, then you are already on course to get it all! Read the freaking press release below from Gerry Stellenberg at Multimorphic, Inc. After showing off our early technology concept machine in 2012 and then iterating on prototype implementations over the last couple of years, I am incredibly proud to announce that the design of the most feature-rich and innovative physical pinball platform ever developed, the P3, is complete. It’s no surprise that there have been no significant technological advancements or gameplay innovations in the pinball industry for decades. The traditional, single-piece, wooden playfield isn’t configured to accommodate modularity, comprehensive ball-tracking, or dynamic playfield artwork, and traditional control systems can’t support new, high-tech features. Developing a revolutionary machine, or just revolutionary gameplay features, would therefore be a time-consuming, expensive, and risky proposition for anybody. As is true in most industries, significant advancements are typically introduced by startup companies, and in the pinball industry, we (Multimorphic) are that startup. We’ve spent the time and money, we’ve taken the risk, and we’ve succeeded in creating a platform that delivers on our vision for modularity and gameplay innovations. It’s taken a team of incredibly passionate and talented individuals to get us to this point, and the machine is just one part of the picture. Along the way, we’ve developed (and continue to develop) the most advanced control system in the industry, the P-ROC/P3-ROC and associated switch and driver boards. Hundreds of custom machine developers and a number of new machine manufacturers are using our control system in their machines, and it’s what we use in the P3 as well. We’ve also been working towards a public release of our P3 pinball development kit, which will allow anybody to create games for the P3 Pinball Platform. This is the same set of development tools and libraries we use internally to create our games. The P3 Pinball Platform, the P-ROC/P3-ROC control system, and our software development kit combine to enable an incredibly diverse library of games. We invite other companies to participate in building up the P3 game library, and we’re doing everything we can to ensure it’s easy for them to do so. At the same time, we’re building our own games. As pinball hobbyists ourselves, we love traditional...
