I've been following the social media pages of the French company HEXA Pinball for a couple of months now. My French skills are admittedly very rusty (I haven't taken French or Spanish since high school) but from what I can determine using translations HEXA plans to unveil its first pinball machine "Space Hunt" at the Salon de Pontacq in France on June 10th and 11th.
Pontacq is a city in south-west France, not far from the Spanish border. For the past three years the French collectors and fans of the hobby have run a pinball and arcade expo there called "Bille en tête - Flipper Sud-Ouest" (see below for the flyer). Thank you to the reader who wrote in with the above information about the show. When I Googled Salon de Pontiaq all it gave me was a list of hairdressers in Michigan lol.
I'm looking forward to seeing that HEXA Pinball has come up with. I'll report back after the reveal with more information on the project and hopefully video of "Space Hunt" in action.
Below are a few snapshots of the game and its development that I took from HEXA's social media pages and website.
