It’s a game changer
The P3 is a pinball platform. It supports hundreds of completely different game apps, each providing a unique gaming experience and offering something for everybody, kids and adults alike! Many of these games will be written by us. Others can be written by you! When combined with different upper playfield shot layouts, the possibilities are truly endless.
Our first suite of games will take you to imaginery worlds you’ve never seen before and through interactions you never dreamed were possible. Unknown adventures lie ahead! Journey through outer space, encountering new worlds, making new friends, and battling new enemies. Each world presents new challenges, scenery, and interactions, as does the seemingly empty space around it.
Everything you see has been hand painted; I do not make prints and I rarely make the same thing twice. I have been creating paintings like these since 2004. I emphasize quality over speed more than anything else, focusing on straight lines, vibrant colors, and accurate details. If you want to follow my personal photo blog, where I detail my entire process, find me on Instagram @pixelartpaintings. I am also on Twitter @pixelpaintingrb and Facebook /pixelartpaintings

“Radio Cult: The worst band you’ll ever love! These guys and gal don’t simply play music, they have the most fun possible doing it! And YOU are invited to join in! Seriously, do you play guitar, bass, or drums? Do you sing? Let them know and they’ll probably let you sit in with them at their next show! Even if you don’t know any of their original music, the band plays hundreds of cover songs too (mostly from the 70s, 80s, and 90s). They treat every show with the seriousness of a high-school house party when someone’s parents are out of town. They’re just as goofy in real life as they appear to be in their music videos, comic book stories, and Saturday morning cartoon. After recording five albums and playing well over 1000 shows together at dozens of conventions, casinos, parties, events and festivals as well as hundreds of bars, concert halls and other music venues across the country and throughout Europe, you’d think they’d have gotten better. Nope. They’re still the same fun-loving fools that they’ve always been, with silly smiles on their faces as they sing about cats and monsters and stuff…and we love them for it!”
We are the good guys!
