Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access is a great opportunity to get feedback from new players on existing and new content and to grow our community.

Pinball Wicked will be a multi table pinball game. For the included Black Flaggers pinball table we will gather your feedback to modify, balance, polish and finalize the game play and design.
Your ideas, suggestions and feedback will guide us from the get-go for the upcoming dlc tables.

Together we can make Pinball Wicked an illuminating celebration of the rollin' steel ball.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to update and grow the game in Early Access until 2 additional table DLCs are complete and polished.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“For the full version the following features are planned:
  • Three original tables available (1 included, 2 as purchasable DLCs)
  • Multi-player challenges
  • Local and online leaderboards
  • Multi-player tournaments (official and user created)
  • Lower minimum system requirements

DLC features:
  • Alternate game modes
  • Custom physics settings
  • Custom camera presets
  • "Glass Off Mode" - move, shoot and catch the ball by hand

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Pinball Wicked currently contains all the core systems that will be evolved, calibrated and optimized during Early Access.

The included Black Flaggers pinball table boasts a wealth of pinball game elements, which will be balanced, adjusted and expanded based on the player feedback we receive.

Black Flaggers will stay under heavy development during the early Early Access and is not final in the current state. At the moment we're focused on completing the modes/missions with more and more visuals (light shows, characters, fx, dmd gfx/animations) and sounds. The following modes/missions will be activated with one of the next updates: The Treasure Fleet (Grand Finale), The Raiders (Loot Event), The Booty Bonanza (Loot Event), The Buccaneer Frenzy, The Hidden Cove (Mystery). Here is the Black Flaggers Rules Flow Chart for an overview.

For a detailed view of the features we're currently working on - have a look at the Pinball Wicked Roadmap here:
https://trello.com/b/SrlxC4Ui/pinball-wicked-roadmap

If your rig doesn't meet the current minimum system requirements:
A low end version which will support integrated gpus / low end graphics cards / notebooks is in the works too, so click on follow and we'll keep you updated.

And if you can't do without VR:
We expect to have an update for you soon.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The base price and table dlc prices might go up, down or stay the same during and after the Early Access. It is most likely that we will slightly raise the base price with the release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will collect your ideas and feedback and keep you informed about design decisions and the development process with regular updates.

You can follow the current development on our roadmap here: https://trello.com/b/SrlxC4Ui/pinball-wicked-roadmap

You can give us feedback at any time while playing the game via the discussion forum.”

Patch 0.9.0.17.8 notes

Ahoy fellow Pinball Lovers!

Thanks for all the great feedback and bug reports!

Patch 0.9.0.17.8 notes (Build 2209136)
  • added missing right stick launch (sensitivity + deadzone settings in one of the next updates)
  • fixed regression: tavern is sometimes triggered multiple times with one ball
  • fixed: slingshots do not always trigger when they're expected to
  • fixed: slingshot visual animation is turned off
  • fixed regression: some timers ignoring pause
  • fixed regression: slingshot R hit too often / even at high ball velocity when the ball rolls out of OceanOrbit R
  • updated: slingshot physics
  • updated: flipper physics
  • fix: removed "cinematic" from settings, as this quality level is not intended for runtime usage and shouldn't have been accessible over the UI
  • added stall detection for the shark
  • fixed: Buccaneer Blast can stall on ball end
  • The Chest music should no longer alternate with The Kraken music if both modes are active
  • fixed: automatic pause when PW is in the background doesn't disable gamepad input
  • many smaller fixes and optimizations

Stay tuned! Have fun! Flip out!
