About eight hours ago the Australian pinball manufacturer Haggis Pinball, manufacturer of the games Celts and Fathom Revisited, shared an unexpected video update on the Company. I'm just waking up here and getting ready for a youth soccer game in the rain, so I almost missed it :). Fear not, I have embedded it below. Here are the highlights:
Haggis is on track to finish building all of its ordered Fathom Revisited machines, including the Classic edition units, by the end of 2023.
Following the completion of Fathom, Haggis will do another run of Celts games.
Haggis will start production of its next game at the start of 2024.
They will announce the next title somewhere around the middle of the year.
The next game is another remake from the same era as Fathom.
Haggis revealed that a new Classic Plus Edition upgrade kit for Fathom Classic machines.
Available for sale on Haggis' website now for $992 USD, the Fathom upgrade kit includes the new 2.0 code, the replacement apron with LCDs, new four color seven segment RGB displays for the backbox and the upgraded sound system.
The Fathom Classic Plus upgrade will only be available for sale for the next two weeks.
Haggis expanded its "Series Ticket" program, which allows customers to put down deposits on the next four of five total classic pinball remakes (Fathom Revisited was #1). The ticket comes with perks and moves customers to the front of the line for their games.
Whew, I started writing the bullet point list of news items in real time while watching the video. I didn't expect it to be that long. That should have been written in paragraph form. Oh well, gotta' run to youth sports. So there you have it. A TON of new Haggis Pinball news for your Sunday enjoyment.

"The Fathom Classic 2.0 Upgrade will add additional functionality and features to your existing Fathom Classic Pinball Machine.
