“There’s just so much to love about the FathomTM pinball machine it’s hard to pick just one great thing about it,” says Damian Hartin, CEO of Haggis Pinball. “I love the art from Greg Freres and the layout is fantastic with all the drop targets and challenging but rewarding gameplay. Not to mention the amazing sound effects and iconic callouts. It has always been one of my favourite solid-state pinball machines from this era and I cannot wait to show people how we have been able to remake it using modern technology whilst preserving the look and feel of the original game. Plus, we are making a special “Mermaid Edition” that truly enhances the original game with additional cosmetic features, lighting system, enhanced audio, and the ability to choose between the original rules or a completely new 2.0 ruleset.”
Remaking this classic game designed by Ward Pemberton (Goldeneye, Gilligan’s Island, Mousin’ Around, Riverboat Gambler) and renowned artist Greg Freres (Elvira’s House of Horrors, Star Trek, Scared Stiff, No Fear: Dangerous Sports), Haggis Pinball wants more people to experience the magic of solid-state games which will also complement any pinball collection.
Haggis Pinball will be using their enhanced playfield manufacturing process to prevent dimpling from everyday play as well as their extensive testing practices to ensure the game made today has the reliability pinball collectors and fans from around the world expect, so they can enjoy their games for years to come.
