Last night an unusual NFT-themed pinball machine named "Escape from the Megaverse" made its public debut at Barcade in New York City. I'm still trying to figure out exactly what this is. The machine appears to be exactly the same as Stern Pinball's Heavy Metal private-label game. Word is that this is an official private-label production run made by by Stern Pinball, despite the fact that Stern recently said that it does not currently have any plans to do any runs like this. Of course, money talks and it looks like they did.
There's no word on who the artist for the game was, how many will be produced or if it will be available for sale. As far as the theme goes, much to my oldest son's chagrin, I'm definitely not a fan of NFTs or crypto so this one isn't in my wheelhouse. Perhaps there's someone out there who's less risk-averse than I who knows more about this project? If so, I'm curious to hear more.
