Wow I remember when you first discovered this, seems a lifetime ago, must be 10/15 years ago.

We work in the dark--we do what we can--we give what we have. Our doubt is our passion and our passion is our task. The rest is the madness of art.

It's a networked four player game.

I've been waiting for four years for this to get debuted. Awesome to see it finally happen!

Well done Rav and P-man

Is the game supposed to have analogue controls?

It looks nice!
I have to ask though, was it a game rediscovered in the UK?  And if so, why does it have to be showcased in the US?
We also had the SkySkipper project go completely silent until we saw the launch in the US.
It's all obviously of great interest to arcade enthusiasts, so we all thank you for your work (!) but it's a shame the UK guys can't claim some glory without conducting some US display.

I'll be updating the Predators page as soon as I can.

The pcbs were found in tyeUs, brought to the UK and went back to the USA with p-man to reverse engineer the inputs as those boards were never discovered.

Whilst a CAX reveal was planned, when the cabinets are restored there will be a uk launch at the arcade club :)
