Stern Pinball has released new details about its Rush pinball machine via an entertaining video featuring Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson.
According to the Stern website, the game will allow players to “travel with Rush through time,” and they’ll become “immersed in exclusive Rush concert footage and guided by custom speech.” Sounds cool, right?
Songs included in the game cover the gamut, such as “Headlong Fight,” “Far Cry,” “One Little Victory,” “Working Man,” “2112,” “Tom Sawyer,” “The Spirit of Radio,” “Freewill,” the two-part “Cygnus X-1″ series, “The Big Money,” “Subdivisions,” “Limelight,” “Fly by Night” and more.
The behind-the-scenes video depicts Lee and Lifeson recording voiceovers for the game and having some fun with it. View the behind-the-scenes video and trailer below.
“I particularly love it when a pinball machine taunts you, and a lot of good players do, so it’s a big part of the game when you’re being taunted,” said Ed Robertson of the Barenaked Ladies. It’s not totally clear what his involvement is with the machine, but it’s known that he’s a huge pinball geek and he’s also a friend and fan of Rush.
Lifeson responds by recording, “Hey, Geddy, you owe me a quarter. With interest, that’s almost two quarters.”
Stern will virtually showcase the new game at the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show, which happens Jan. 5 through Jan. 8.
