My god, she's alive!
The Machine: Bride of Pin*Bot
Make me live, make me sing, make me feel like a woman.
is a pinball
game designed by Python Anghelo
and John Trudeau
. It was released in 1991 by Williams Electronics
, and is the sequel to Williams' earlier Pin*Bot
In the game, the player must complete the construction of "The Machine", a massive female humanoid robot. The player does this by first shooting a ball into her mouth (enabling her to speak), then shooting two balls into her eye sockets (so she can see). With the Machine complete and fully operational, the job would be done, except an influx of human DNA causes the Bride to experience an unexpected metamorphosis...
A sequel, Jack*Bot
, was released in 1995.
In 2013, Dutch Pinball
released Bride of Pinbot 2.0,
a conversion kit for the game. It replaces the innards of the game with a new controller, speaker panel, and dot-matrix display. Players can choose either the original game or "Bride 2.0", which features a deeper ruleset, player profiles, achievements, new sounds and music, and animated effects. A video of the game is available here.
A digital version of Bride of Pin*Bot
is available as part of FarSight Studios' The Pinball Arcade
