ANNOUNCEMENT!! The TWIPYs will be held on March 28th at 8:30 PM Eastern/7:30 PM Central!! As mentioned previously, the hosts are Imoto Arcade and Cary Hardy and they have been doing INCREDIBLE work creating amazing assets for the show.

The TWIPYs will be Premiering via YouTube (at this link when it goes live). After looking at several different options and after all that has happened, this is the option that will be best suited for this year. For those unfamiliar with YouTube Premieres, they let you watch and experience a new video like a movie or TV show premiere, and there is a chat room where we can all interact.

We have awesome presenters and cool surprises that we can’t wait to show you! You won’t want to miss this, it will be the pinball event of the year!!

(And really, what else will you be doing??)
