Pinballin - A Portsmouth GameJam 2018 Entry

Pinballin was created as part of the 5 day University of Portsmouth Gamejam 2018

The game was created in just 5 working days between the hours of 9am to 5pm and was to be based on at least one of the following themes:

  • D-Side
    • An Irish Boyband of relatively little fame
  • David L. Levey
    • A children's rights activist
  • Pallissery
    • A village in Kerala, India

We created a classic pinball game in Unreal Engine using Blueprints, George Brown was responsible for creating the pinball controllers that were incredibly well received by everyone who played it.
