It's an honor to work with Interplay and taking part in Interplay Discovery presents an amazing opportunity for indie developers. This is our first game, after which we plan to add more content to Pinball Yeah and create other games with novel experiences for gamers worldwide.”
According to Interplay President Eric Caen, creator of the Interplay Discovery TM Publishing Program, “We are happy to help this young talented team to fine tune their innovative game and reach a worldwide audience.”
Pirates, Leprechauns, Krakens, Artificial Intelligence, a metal ball and your thumbs. The secret formula that takes you deep into a new and innovative fantasy pinball experience.
Embrace a virtual world controlled by an evil A.I., with no purpose other than to seek your high-score's demise! Four tables are available for your thumbs delight:
- Outsmart the wicked A.I. to gain access to other simulations.
- Assist the pirates against the mighty Kraken, while keeping an eye out for treasure!
- Quench your thirst and grab a handful of peanuts at "Ye Old Irish Pub" to help you focus on your quest for the Leprechaun's life savings!

The Interplay Discovery TM Publishing Program is open to developers with a complete or nearly completed game ready to be published. Eric Caen further explained the process: “Publishing agreements for promising titles typically can be signed within a few days of product submission. At that point, Interplay's team of design & gameplay experts can help developers through the finalization, optimization, approval and publishing processes. We hope to bring great games to market very regularly, as we are starting to do with these first two games. Who knows, one of these new developers could become as famous as some of the current greats previously published by Interplay.”
