They got backed with 49.349 £ on Kickstarter. To be honest, when I saw the sum, I already thought they were underestimating the costs – being a dev myself and considering all the things they wanted to do with the money. So I am glad that they at least delivered a playable game. I personally don't really care about the rewards.

I just think it is really not a good behaviour of Barnstorm Games to just ignore everything going on on this board and never answer any questions regarding the rewards or any future development of the Pro Pinball series.
The board is still alive as well as the pro-pinball page itself. So someone is still paying at least for the domain and the hosting.

I'm a little late on this discussion, but yeah it's depressing thinking about what could have been. I remember back in 2013 when I heard that the Pro Pinball tables would be remastered along with a new table, I was excited thinking I will get to experience my childhood again in a remastered format. Yet here we are in 2019 and we only have Timeshock remastered. I'm sure by the time we get all the tables remastered (I'm starting to doubt it at this point) I'll probably be in my 50's.

Oh well

I don't think this is going to happen. Barnstorm does not even care for Timeshock anymore.
The iOS version is crashing a lot since the latest major iOS version got released – and no update has been released yet. And I bet there will be also none in the future.

Barnstorm and Timeshock are dead.

Just a bit of advice.
At this point I would go into the game settings on PC, and download each and every table view (even if you don't normally use it) -- be sure to choose each resolution as well.

Download all of the data and back it up somewhere, for when the servers get taken down.
