People have inquired on the timing of when the Stern of the Union Address will be sent out and it will always be on the first Tuesday of every month (holiday and vacation pending!). Without further ado my fellow pinheads:
Guardians of the Galaxy:
In case you haven’t already heard or seen the news, we have just announced our newest game based on the popular movie franchise, Guardians of the Galaxy! https://www.avclub.com/exclusive-the-new-guardians-of-the-galaxy-pinball-mach-1820005613
The music package will include pop songs and if you happen to be attending the IAAPA show in Orlando (starts November 14th), we will be at booth #2013 where you can come check out the game in person. Otherwise, set a reminder on your personal calendars as we will be having the official Dead Flip gameplay stream with Jack Danger on Monday, November 20th at 6pm CST!

Status of Code:
We are continuously working to update and improve software for our machines. There are always code updates and bug fixes in various stages of development; as usual we will release them as soon as possible. Here are some of the latest updates and status of things in the works:
Stern in the news:
In case you missed it, the A.V. Club had some additional segments on pinball featuring Mr. Gary Stern. Here’s one that focused on the evolution of pinball since the 1930s - https://www.avclub.com/stern-pinball-s-gary-stern-on-the-evolution-of-pinball-1819703840
And here’s one focusing on arguably one of the weirdest and beloved games we’ve ever made, Orbitor 1 - https://www.avclub.com/stern-pinballs-gary-stern-on-the-weirdest-pinball-machi-1819909637
Heads-Up Pinball Championship:
The inaugural IFPA Heads-Up Championship is in the books and a big congrats to all of the winners. The format was unique, fun, frantic and ultimately everyone had a blast at the event. In the end, the reigning IFPA World Champion, and winner of a brand new Aerosmith pinball machine, was Raymond Davidson! 2nd place was Karl DeAngelo, 3rd place was Tim Sexton and 4th place was Johnny Modica. Congrats again to all of the players and be on the look-out for this event to be back again in 2018!
