The American arcade may be dead , but Tilt Warning Customs is betting that won’t be a problem for its latest project: the custom pinball machine company plans to open a new arcade that will blend retro authenticity with modern style. There will be five pairs of classic Gottleib tables such as El Dorado and Big Shot; the twist is that while one of the tables will be restored to its original state, the other will undergo a custom conversion by modern pop artists. The project just launched on Kickstarter , where Tilt Warning Customs is targeting a funding goal of $75,000 — additional artists and machines will be added for every $20,000 over that amount.
