Totally Enhanced Duelling Artefact, 2004
In the beginning of 2004, after three years of developing and exhibiting PainStation, we decided that building a small series of PainStations would be a good idea to draw a line and finish the project for ourselves. The intention was to build five machines that would be reliable and durable enough to form a “working archive” of the Project »PainStation« so it could be exhibited and experienced in the future, too.
The new machines incorporate all the experience we made with playing and exhibiting the machine and thus are the best PainStations ever build. Improvements range from industry-strength hardware over many new gameplay features to the overall finished and polished look.
