    JJP should do Rick and Morty: The Pinball Adventure

    #10 3 years ago
    Quoted from Tomahawkjim:

    Oh Yeah! It's time to get schwifty!

    Rick and Morty would be perfect because its a fun license and adult swim would probably be really easy going with stuff they wouldn't allow and I can't imagine that would be much.

    Quoted from Rarehero:

    The creators of the show are total geeks and would be all over a pinball machine. They'd have custom art, voices - hell they'd prob come up with great toys and mechs!

    I'm playing the powerball tonight, so when I win i'll make it happen

    Quoted from stoptap:

    Still no wiser. Is it only shown in the US ?

    its a cartoon on late night tv. I think you can watch some of it on AdultSwim.com

    Quoted from stoptap:

    Stern and Disney have obviously worked together before. Why not again ?

    As the years go by, you'll notice a trend in licensing. Basically the license holders have been getting more and more restrictive regardless of past ventures.

    Quoted from SilverBallz:

    Is this thread a trick question?

    Its a free way for JJP to get game ideas.

    Quoted from dmbjunky:

    mnpinball knows his stuff. If he says Bond, I'm gonna believe Bond.
    That has the potential to be an awesome pin. I never get tired of the theme song.

    I'd give MNpinball an 80% correctness. Him saying the line started and it was a false start didn't help anyone.

    Quoted from mnpinball:

    They had started sub assemblies when I posted. Drop mechs, beast mechs etc certainly need those ready in multiples for the playfields. No false starts. But quite possibly my terms are different than yours

    Got any inside info where the sample games are going?

    Quoted from ahdelarge:

    I'd be all over a Ricky & Morty pin. If they made that or re-made Back to the Future, it would be a must own. Not many themes come to mind at the moment where it would be something I'd have to own. Space and price rises are now seeing careful pinball purchases.

    Moonmen Multi-ball: 2 minute max multi-ball with a psychedelic display of colors, take down the moonmen. You've killed the hitman and you need to take on the task yourself.

    Snuffles is out of Control Multiball

    The main aspect we need to consider is what assets can be used for the next jjp pin. Its going to have to be something current so Keith and the art guy can master the fuck out of those assets and integrate them artfully. Woz was great, but hobbit really took the video and audio from the movies and brought them into a masterpiece

    Quoted from TheLaw:

    why...are JJP employees bad asses or something

    LTG sure is a badass, I wouldn't want to get on his bad side. Fun stories of those who did have been told and were pretty funny.

    Quoted from vid1900:

    Here was a post from Keith about different licensed themes and why they could not be done 2008:
    Keith P. Johnson
    Honestly it's hard to remember what other titles might've been in
    contention to be made at the same time as others. Part of the problem
    with the titles you mention (Elvis did VERY well, btw, despite what
    people may think of the theme) is that it really seemed like there
    wasn't much better to do. I'm sure something probably could've been
    better than WOF, but the powers that be kept swearing it was a winner.
    WPT was too late (a year previous would've been ideal especially with
    the 1-season wondergirl Courtney Friel dragging the thing down).
    I can tell you some of the ideas that I personally pitched and others
    that I can remember...
    Survivor - Joe Balcer and I started down this path until it became
    evident that we couldn't get it due to the licensor ("some crazy
    English guy that invented it"). We would've had the rights for the US
    (only) but obvoiusly that wasn't good enough for the company. It
    quickly became a choice between Futurama and The Simpsons. Futurama
    was great, I really liked it (and still do), but its ratings weren't
    very good for reasons known to all the fans. I was certain we could
    make a better game than the DE version, which was the biggest concern
    for that game (how it would be perceived on the street). We dodged a
    HUGE bullet with not picking Futurama since it got cancelled before
    TSPP was finished.
    Captain Morgan - Wanting to do a pirate game of some kind, this was
    the best I could do (years before POTC became a mega-franchise).
    Everyone had a good laugh, and then we actually contacted them. They
    promised to be very entertaining to work with ("Aye, who WOULDN'T want
    to engage in business with the captain??"), but ultimately it was
    decided it wasn't broad enough appeal.
    WWTBAM - I was pitching a quick-playing $.25 game with very simple and
    obvious objectives (I know this will surprise a lot of people, but to
    be honest, I was probably 1 of the top 2 people always trying to keep
    the casual player in mind the entire project from conception to ending
    with practical approaches with Lyman being the other person). Again
    eventually we couldn't get past someone in England who owned the show.
    Also, again, another bullet dodged with the tankitude of the
    popularity of the series due to ABC driving it into the ground.
    MC Escher - The idea I'm proudest of. It was what I thought to be a
    real outside-the-box title (rejected again, I might add, a few months
    before layoffs, because clearly everything else the company was
    picking was gold). There would be a couple wacky devices in the game,
    and obviously great artwork. Stern never did anything remotely
    related to pursuing this idea.
    Grand Theft Auto 3 - This was a few months after GTA3 came out. I'd
    played through it and thought it was one of the best games ever made.
    The freedom of stuff you could do, easy and obvious tying stuff to
    pinball (you got your rampage modes, your missions, your pop-up ramps
    for stunt jumps, the possibilities were endless). Perhaps
    understandably, the crazy British people who owned this IP weren't
    interested in letting anyone else get their hands on it. If I were
    them, I would've had exactly the same attitude.
    Lego - This was a more recent idea that was never really seriously
    pursued AFAIK. You can probably insert similar sour grapes to this
    one as from MC Escher.
    Harry Potter - This idea was pitched years and years ago, well before
    rgp regularly got their panties in a bunch about it. I started
    reading the books shortly after book 4 came out. The amount of stuff
    you could do with the title is obviously awesome. Gary rejected it
    repeatedly without a second thought. Until the movie came out. Then
    the 2nd and 3rd which all did extremely well. Probably within the
    last 2 years was the first time it was finally saught out, and then
    (you guessed it), the crazy English lady who owned the IP wasn't
    interested. I'm not really sure why we kept getting to stymied by
    Crazy Brits; I didn't even realize how common a theme this was until I
    wrote this post.
    So there are some highlights. Hopefully that was entertaining enough
    reading for everyone. I had forgotten about a lot of the details of
    these until that question made me really start thinking about it.
    This probably deserves a new post of its own, but oh well. Consider
    it your reward for digging through this longass thread.

    Then futurama came with with 6 more seasons and 4 or 5 movies..
