Silverball Chronicles Ep 12: Pinball Is Dying: Williams In The Early 80s

Silverball Chronicles with David and Ron

Episode 12: Pinball is Dying: Williams in the Early 80s

Episode Summary 

By the Early 1980’s Pinball was dying. Sales in Pinball fell from peaks of 9-10,000 units to 900 units in 2 years. Video was on an upward trend and that is where the coin op industry began to focus. Only 1 full time designer remained at Williams by 1982, Barry Oursler. To help fill in the production line some of the designers from the late 70’s reappeared. 

 

Join us this month as we discuss Barry Oursler, Paul Dassault, the battle of the Bi-Levels, the ‘Gar Family, Tony Kraemer, hidden back glass art and whatever the heck Time Fantasy was!
