Jersey Jack March '12 Updates

We are releasing another piece of Animation created by our extremely talented Graphic Designer, JP DeWin. This is one of several animations which in various forms and at various times will be incorporated into game play and into the game rules.

These animations will be shown on the 26" Wells Gardner commercial LCD monitor in the backbox and will be accompanied by custom speech, custom music and sounds over the booming stereo sound system of the game.  They are designed to entertain onlookers, instruct the player and amuse everyone.

If you like this one, all we can say is "you ain't seen nothing yet" as John-Paul is cooking up some great treats in his studio.

We don't want Matt to feel lonely this week as he models his way through all of his toys and designs. His "Rainbow Flower Field" is pictured which resides above the Rainbow Targets.

The picture of the Munchkinland playfield with the latest house shown without the applied artwork and in the "landed" position on top of the feet of the Wicked Witch of the East. There is also some artwork on the playfield and some blurry faces which will be exposed at a later time.

JP is still hard at work creating the animation for the LCD. People are asking for a bit more of them so we go to the characters in a "Happy Dance" that will be used as an element of a larger award screen. The video below is a small example of how JP captures scenes from the movie, and is able to customize how the characters move and interact on the screen based on different situations during game play.

Assembly line and cabinet ready for decals

In reality, many aspects of the game are already in production. That is thousands of parts, assemblies, cabinets, and related items. One thing not in production yet is our playfield as we are waiting for some approval of aspects of the playfield artwork. Our playfield manufacturing company is ready to go chomping at the bit (literally) to begin that shortly.
The first batch of cabinets are in the completion process and we will show them in the next update but below is a link to the raw wood being cut for our cabinets.

We have been asked to show the Winged Monkey Mech and Dorothy's Spinning House which we are doing today. Both shown are not the completed versions but will give you an idea of what they will be. All of the motors and mechs in the game are 12VDC and all feed off of our JJP proprietary I/O Board.
