You design the machine, in order for the automated pinball player to achieve the best score they can get. Create the best and most crazy pinball machine layouts and see where this will take you and the automata!
Out of all the recent games I've created and played, this is my absolute favorite! Fantastic idea!

The game was a one-person, seven-week mini-sabbatical project. Or at least the initial design and prototyping is. A fully functional DEMO version was released at the end. It includes one full Tutorial machine. Whether we'll ever finish a full game? Who knows!?
The process is largely out in the open though! So that's something to enjoy already. Here's the initial design, but be sure to check the devlog for more frequent updates.
Here's a sketch of the initial design for you to enjoy:
What's quite sure is that the design and idea will be completed during Q1-2023 (you can follow active progress on the GitHub Kanban Board↗). What's less sure is when (or if) the rest of the game will be completed. Because it's a side-project, which should remain fun at all times! But be sure to let me know if you're looking forward to the end result; that might push me to maybe complete the game... Who knows!?
