    **EXCLUSIVE interview with deeproot Pinball:

    http://thisweekinpinball.com/exclusive-interview-deeproot-next-misadventure-pinball-revolution/

    "deeproot Pinball has been quietly making progress on their path and plan to become a major pinball manufacturing company. They have been in licensing talks for several major pinball titles. They are hoping to have their manufacturing facility finalized in the next 2-3 weeks."

    Based on that interview I'll rate deeproot a 10 in the arrogance department. In the interview they come off as a bunch of egotistical pricks. A lot of lawyer speak laced throughout the interview, even on some of the simpler questions. I defy anyone to read that entire interview and not feel dirty by the end of it. Pinball is easy. I'm glad TWIP asked the questions I wanted to know the answers too. There's more to pinball that just building a machine. What about software? What about updates? What about defects found in the field? What about warranty? It feels like there is a layer of filth over this company. Maybe that's where the deeproot name comes into play.
