In 2018, deeproot rescued me and brought me in like family. I had no idea at the time pinball was still a thing, and I couldn’t foresee how much fun I would have working on it every day!

An experience that was especially memorable to me was the Houston Arcade Expo in 2019. I was so excited to see people play RAZA, whether it was my friends, players I knew from the pinball community or people who I met for the first time. As RAZA was being played along with the other games in the vendor area, I thought to myself that our game was joining the pinball family; I was also looking forward to analyzing the real-life data being collected from play sessions and seeing how that would affect our approach going forward.

It has been so much fun to work on deeproot's playfield toys! Going into it, I knew that I would love the artistic side of creating toys, but what I didn't know was how much I would love the engineering side of it as well. I'm grateful that Robert has given this oversized kid free range of a giant pinball world to make the best toys possible!

It has been a dream making awesome animations with our amazing art team for such an iconic medium. I can't wait to share what else we've been cooking up! I hope we can join the pinball community in showing everyone else the value of this tangible entertainment in an ever-growing digital world.

I ended up meeting Robert and we really hit it off. He wanted to take pinball in all kinds of new directions--inventions and the kind of thinking that really appealed to a veteran game developer like me. Even though I'm still not a very good pinball player, I know enough to appreciate the amazing rock star talent Robert has assembled and be amazed by the inventive mechanical engineering in development. It's an honor and pleasure to create art packages and illustrate the gameplay and stories worthy of all the effort already put into these pinball machines.
- Matthew Armstrong
I joined deeproot for the opportunity to work on a project that brings joy to people, not just a product that fills a need. What I found when I got here was an amazing team of people that are passionate about bringing this dream to reality. I'm proud to be part of a team like this and am excited to contribute to it. In a world of digital connection, I'm happy to work on a project that creates human interaction through players and spectators.

I am most proud of being involved with the cabinet and backbox designs. The basic shape of pinball cabinets has been the same for decades; we have some really cool new designs that look amazing. One of the most memorable experiences I have had was the first time I tested a game with some of the parts I had been working on. Being able to see the whole picture of how the entire game went together, I finally had this eureka moment where I realized that my job was literally fun and games.
- Gabe Hernandez
Not only am I excited to work on a product I can enjoy with my family, but also by the challenges of creating the 'magic' and solving the 'impossible' in pinball! I believe we can continue to deliver a better product bringing better value to everyone. I'm proud of how much we have done and how much more we plan to do!
