    Community,

    I thought it would be helpful to start a thread of 'Goonies.'

    yeah, they're most certainly going to be able to get subsequent, licensed titles out on time, and maybe even before their first, unlicensed game that doesn't work properly.

    #3 71 days ago

    Anyone have a contact for the guys at Deeproot? I really want to connect to them if this is coming.

    You’ve got a better chance of getting hit by an meteor and struck by lightening at the same time.

    Goonies??? Possible you got it wrong.....

    will it be produced before any of the six that were promise,,,, how long ago?

    #7 70 days ago

    Super confident in seeing this in 2021.

    Oh wait, actually anyone who wants this license now gets to sit there knowing the license is being held (presumably) by a company that has taken 3 years to not produce their first run of games. Could that change tomorrow, sure, but it also could not.

    Glad I'm not the only one that thought of Electric Company. We're gonna turn on the power!

    #9 70 days ago

    Goonies could be really cool. Classic theme. Hopefully they can start getting some games out the door.

    This game has to have Good Enough by Cindi Lauper!

    does throwing it on the curb count?

    #12 69 days ago

    I'd be in for one. But I need to see them put some games out first. No preorders for me.

    #13 69 days ago

    I'm interested, but only if they can find a way to slap some touch screens onto the legs and rails.

    #14 69 days ago

    It was leaked that they had this license over a year ago with a flyer dated TPF 2019.

    The person who posted it was promptly asked pretty forcibly to remove the post, the subsequent posts/responses are in the thread.

    Really isn’t a surprise they have this.

    #15 69 days ago

    It was a bad idea to let people start building up the perfect game in their head for the next couple years (could say the same for the rest of their theme ideas)

    #16 69 days ago

    I wish Deeproot the best of luck making this game.

    My only advice would be bump it up the line - make it sooner rather than later!

    I agree, the theme would sell for sure. I think it’s risky to try original theme as your first game built.

    #18 69 days ago

    Cool theme, but I wonder how many people under 40 would be interested enough in the theme to consider buying one

    #19 69 days ago

    It’s a good theme, but, at this point, I do t think it’s even worth talking about. DR just needs to get a pin completed, any pin. Unless they have a major surprise up their sleeve, we are years away from seeing a Goonies or any other licensed pin from them.

    Not sure but if they are indeed so far away from making anything after all this time, have to wonder why investors keep throwing cash at them.

    Not only that but it robs you of sales on earlier games. DR should focus on not only production of their first game but marketing it as well.

    Quoted from jawjaw:

    Agree. They should focus on 1 game only and get it out the door. You don't start a business by launching 7 new products at the same time when you haven't even launched 1. This allows you to implement learnings from the first product and make the next products even better. Happy to consult with them on product launch and marketing strategy. They know how to find me.

    #23 69 days ago

    This game is likely a year away. I would be interested in knowing the designer. Hopefully this would be a Barry Oursler game.

    I thought that also

    #25 69 days ago

    Clever marketing & R and D idea if true. "Some are saying" Goonies so DR just sits back, watches what people want and incorporate some of that into a machine years later?
    If ever.

    There was talk back in late 2018 early 2019 that DR had the license already so if true not exactly sitting and waiting...we’ll maybe sitting and waiting to build I guess after all this weeks drama.

    add to the rumor thread, had the movie license for FAILURE to LAUNCH

    #28 68 days ago

    I would be in but not holding my breath. Deeproot has a long way to go.

    #29 68 days ago

    I loved the movie, but moved on from it years ago. Something modern would be better. Still don't understand those wishing for Jaws or is that just a joke tag line?

    If they enjoy Baby Ruth candy bar, they will

    #31 68 days ago

    I can't see this happening, a great movie but not enough meat on the bone to make a modern pinball game. Pinball makers should be looking at classic trilogies now, for plenty of content for a deep and interesting ruleset. Matrix, BTTF, Mad Max, Bill and Ted, Rambo..stuff like that. No one wants to play a game where you'll see and hear everything in one game. Trust me, you will with The Goonies.

    Do you know who will be on the design team? Just wondering how you would know we will see it all and hear it all in one game

    I wonder who they have for a production team, or team leaders and trainers...
