DVD - TILT: THE BATTLE TO SAVE PINBALL
The dire situation facing the pinball designers at Williams Electronic Games in 1998: come up with something new, or see the world's largest pinball manufacturer be shut down forever. And Williams' designers did come up with something amazing: a brand new kind of pinball machine "Pinball 2000" that fused video with classic pinball gameplay, preserving what was great about pinball yet opening up all-new possibilities for a product thought to be on its last legs.
Yet soon after its successful and highly-profitable launch, Williams pulled the plug, leaving behind unanswered questions and abandoning one of the world's great design organizations. TILT: The Battle to Save Pinball is a documentary that tells the story behind one of entertainment's most mysterious failures.
Not just for pinball fanatics, TILT tells an account that any fan of technology, design, or business will find fascinating. Seen from the Pinball 2000 designers' perspective, TILT is a story about personality and passion, of bold success followed by stunning failure.
