Heh, showing my age here, but I thought it was this song:

If it's worth minimal points on purpose, that's hilarious. Good idea though and pretty well demonstrated.

#303 4 years ago

pure insanity
keep up the good work

The Art of Noise "Peter Gunn Theme" is spot on!

#307 4 years ago

So fun looking. I didn't want the video to end.

#308 4 years ago

Archer will make it's public debut at Arcade Expo 2016 in Banning, CA!

Yes!

Love how the Bandit was randomly thrown in there.

#310 4 years ago

Of all the home brew machines currently in motion, yours has my full attention. I enjoyed the show a lot, and while I'm not a die hard fan of Archer I like some of the originality going into this pin.

#311 4 years ago

I'm always really excited to see the progress on this. Not only does it look like lots of fun to play, it looks fun in a way that doesn't really remind me of anything else, which is great. The details make all the difference. Also, I guess the awesome theme doesn't hurt either.

I love Archer. It's a great theme. But I have to admit, I kind of wish it was dinos and monster trucks, only because that would mean a much better chance of this getting made some day.

#313 4 years ago

The captive ball lock is my favorite feature... reminds me of Heavy Metal Meltdown.

#314 4 years ago

This is so bad ass. Keep up the amazing work.

Not gonna lie. Even though I love Archer, I was disappointed when it was revealed to not be Monster trucks vs die-nosores. Had the potential for some wacky rules and callouts.

The EQ in the backbox would have been sweet and I was looking forward to some custom siders, too!

#316 4 years ago

AIRBOAT WOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

#317 4 years ago

This looks awesome. It would be super awesome (spoken in Archer's voice) if you could get the real Burt Reynolds to assist with callouts.

If Spooky wants to make DvMT we're all ears

That is the best news ever! I hope you guys can come to an arrangement one day!

If Spooky passes, I'd be interested. We got this new space lined-up and nothing to build yet!

I'm interested! Keep the original artist, too!

#322 4 years ago

Whether it's DvMT or Archer, I would plunk money down to pre-order when it's confirmed that someone is producing it. The game just looks amazing. Best layout ever!

I want to see this happen! Keith, talk to Aaron, he's got crazy ideas that might just work out for you.

Still waiting on a quote from you for about the past week so we can decide how best to proceed.

Surely someone will contact Keith about producing his designs at some point. These ideas are on another level - so simple but somehow they have never been done before. It's great to see that there are still new things in pinball to be discovered. Bravo!

Holy crap! The creativity here is awesome. How are you even doing this?

Only if I do a movie theme about gladiators! Maybe after Ash vs Evil dead conversion kit Gary and Jack will start calling

#333 4 years ago
Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

Great looking pin and a beautiful layout. Surpised nobody suggested that you try to produce these. I'd buy one to put beside my FGY, which is disguised as a Shrek. Shhhh, don't tell.

Putting in this much creative effort and work to not make any money on it seems... wrong.

Why is the pin I want the most the one I can't have?

Being a pinball designer is a dream job of mine. It's tough but a labor of love

Will this include a "blood sprayer"? . I want a face full of blood in my own splatter zone!

Well I'd say this project is a damn fine resume.

Wore this record out in my childhood, friend gave it to me.

#342 4 years ago

that looks sweet, nice work guys

#343 4 years ago

I played it and it was awesome - even incomplete, whitewood, and some bugs - fucking fantastic! Of course "balls", "Ben wa balls" and "Balls! nailed it." all made an appearance. but it's not just awesome call-outs - it's a genuinely awesome game!

somebody needs to give Keith Elwin and crew jobs in pinball. they're the real deal, they're the new blood.

#344 4 years ago

The game was great. Had a really nice chat with Randy about how he was handling a lot of the code, always interesting to see how other people are doing things.

Big thanks to Keith and Randy for bringing it out to Arcade Expo!

And how might I ask did you go about getting to play this?

Well first of all, holy shit at another pinball fan in Ladera Ranch, and to answer your question: at the Arcade Expo 2016 in Banning!
