All There In The Manual: Pinball
  • Much of the background information for Pinball Magic, such as the background of Matra Magna and the Society of Masters, is only available in the operator's manual.
  • Likewise for Doctor Who, which has a rather complex story that is only available through the flyers, manual, and promotional video.
  • Most of the backstories for LittleWing's pinball games are presented only in the instruction manual or their web site. For instance, Mad Daedalus has a story about a Robo Ship between an ancient inventor and an alien AI, a power-mad tyrant king, and a Stable Time Loop, all in an 800-word introduction in the instruction manual.
  • WHO dunnit has an overarching set of Plot Threads that connect the five suspects, most of which is only hinted at through the characters' various interrogation answers. A complete timeline for their personal histories is given in the operator manual.
