But I thought that since the engine was written, instead of selling the port of Pinball Dreams you can make a new game of Flipper with other boards.


I would be really happy to buy a nice Pinball Dreams style game. It's an idea, what about it ?

I was just kidding, I really do not expect any legal issue with this project. :)
Contacting the current owners of the rights (Rebellion) does not seem easy, they have ignored me in several attempts ... so it seems that they are in other issues.

On the other hand, I am currently trying to contact Andreas Axelsson because, although currently he does not have the rights, I would not like to release the game without the permission of the original authors.

Ideas are not copywriteable. Execution, though, is. And 'design' is execution, so yes, you do.


Who owns it now? 21st Century Entertainment or a successor?

21st Century Entertainment were the successor of Hewson, a company recently re-formed and making new games. It's now run by Andrew Hewson and his son.

Well yes, but whether Hewson still retain their IPs or not is a totally different issue, I'd guess... But the Hewsons are very approachable, at least!

I contacted Rob Hewson, a very nice guy, who told me that the rights are currently held by Rebellion.

Good news, friends, we already have in the final phase the Pinball Dreams game for our beloved Amstrad!
We are in the testing phase so that we have the gaming experience that is most similar to the Amiga 500 version.
We ask you a little patience, friends.

Hi!,

Batman Group is proud to present our new division for the game development "BG Games". This new brand arises from the need to show the world the true potential of CPC as gaming machine.

Pinball Dreams will be the first of our releases. Finished since November, we're just waiting to close a deal with the giant Rebellion to bring the CPC the official version of the famed classic on which industry legends like 21st Century Entertainment or DICE were founded.

The wait will be worth it...

In the meantime, we'd like to show you a little preview in this video teaser:
