Pinball is long over due for a maritime theme of substance. There have been a few. Some good ones. Herman Melville's classic novel lends itself perfectly to pinball.

Master and commander would be better in my opinion.

Aquaman from the new 52 would kickass too.

20,000 leagues under the sea, Seaquest, Treasure Island, Horatio Hornblower, Jason and the Argonauts, Mutiny on the Bounty, HMS Defiant, Captain Blood, Deep Rising, Ghost Ship, Jaws...there are all sorts of nautical works out there.

We do have Sinbad, Torpedo Alley, Waterworld, Popeye, White Water, Fathom, Surf 'n Safari, Atlantis, and a few others that I know I'm forgetting.

Jason and the Argonauts... When the Medusa toy appears you must play with your eyes closed.

Captain Nemo is the closest to 20,000 leagues under the sea, too bad not a big quantity being made.

Forget Moby Dick, we need a full production run of Big Dick!

Any version of Aquaman blows.

That's definitely the closest as far as a game being 100% themed around it, but Verne's World is largely based on it as well. It even has a Nautilus toy and a giant squid toy. Sadly, there's just a very small quantity of these as well.

I'd be in if it was based on Mastodon's Leviathan record. Blood and thunder multiball!!

Moby Dick, Hmmm.
The licencing fee could be fairly low. Ahab chasing a big Whale. Plenty of metaphors and characters to follow.
The soundtrack, well, that will need some work. Whistling, chain rattling, cannon fire, storm sounds, fife, Whale breaths, sea gulls, and maybe a squeeze box or two.

Hmmm..... Not bad of a theme at all, good thinking.

First thing I thought of reading the title.

If it's a marine theme....My vote is for JAWS...

There's a really cool original theme for pinball fx2 called Secrets of the Deep. I wonder if pinball gets popular enough if they will make physical machines of some of the digital themes like Timeshock.

15 years ago I really thought that Hollywood would do an updated version of Moby Dick, but it hasn't happened yet. I still think it would make more sense than another superhero rehash. It's an epically dark story and if done right (haha) would be amazing to see with a big budget. Of course, would be a good pinball too.

Have you seen what they have done the last few years to classic stories and charcters? (Sherlock Holmes, Dracula, Wolf Man, etc)

Never will happen....as it should. Go watch the Peck version - it is pretty good.

I suppose a STTNG could be re-themed...
