When production of Multimorphic’s P3 pinball platform began, the assembly was undertaken by a contract manufacturer. Now all the pre-orders have been fulfilled, current and future machines will be built in Multimorphic’s new facility in Round Rock, Texas.
The Multimorphic factory in Round Rock, Texas
Inside the 5,000 square feet building nearly all the floor space is used for game manufacturing. Everyone works on the floor, so there are no offices and only a solitary meeting room.
An overview of the Multimorphic factory unit
Game construction uses multiple parts and sub-assemblies built either in-house or coming in from external suppliers. Deliveries have to be inspected, checked and measured before they become stock items.

Building and testing of sub-assemblies
Slingshots and flipper assemblies are built in-house using custom frames
Some parts are 3D printed in the factory. During our visit, they were making fan housings for the magnets on the Cosmic Cart Racing playfield module.

Playfield modules can be bought separately, so these are assembled in the factory too.

So far, Multimorphic have three upper playfield modules – Lexy Lightspeed, Cannon Lagoon and Cosmic Cart Racing – along with their associated games, but they are working on a fourth which will only be revealed once it is available to buy

When we visited we got to play the new four-player head-to-head Cosmic Cart Racing using the two machines above plus two more elsewhere in the factory.
