Haggis Pinball Updates
Haggis Pinball shares an update following their appearance at Texas Pinball Festival.
Haggis expects to complete production on Fathom remakes by the end of the year (Mermaid Edition and Classic Edition).
Customers who purchased a Classic Edition game will have a chance to purchase upgrades to their game to bring it in line with the additional features of the Mermaid Edition.
They plan to produce a run of Celts after Fathom.
Production on their next game (also a remake from the Fathom era) should start in 2024, with an announcement on what that title is around the middle of this year.
