A Littlewing eulogy

Every year, when September arrives, I cannot help reminiscing Littlewing and the days when digital pinball had a future. Alas, for reasons I have already explained Littlewing folded five years ago and we lost a real pinball wizard. 

I remember when Tristan first came out, the excitation, the infatuation with this simple but, oh so realistic, game. I remember its superb graphics and the hours spent trying to integrate the small physics cheats Fujita-san had implemented in order to make the game more interesting. Littlewing thrived for quite a few year (well, perhaps not thrived, managed to survive is probably closer to the truth) but then one day they decided that enough was enough.

The rest is history and a great loss for the digital pinball world.
