    This is the thread to talk all things known and what you think will happen with the freshly announced and highly anticipated new title from Deep Root pinball- FOOD TRUCK

    What kinds of foods and craaazy mechs do you think we will be in store for?

    Looks like maybe we will get a chance to play as an ex-luchadore now running a taco truck? Maybe a selection of characters including a singing waitress and a snarky indian man? Perhaps he can be sort of like the soup nazi from seinfeld, and if you don't make the proper shots NO SOUP FOR YOU!

    It could be an ok game if it's basically Diner 2.0. I liked the idea of balancing getting ingredients, managing a kitchen, and delivering food items before customers get cranky.

    Basically Overcooked the game. (I wonder how much a license for that video game would be?)

    Nailed it, my girlfriend and I love Overcooked and so does anyone else we get to play it with us. I think a food truck based pin could be awesome if it's done right, lots of potential.

    What if on the touch screen lock down bar, occasionally a roach runs across it and you have to slap it. Maybe too gross, maybe too abusive of the touch screen, but just an idea.

    I can't believe this is an actual thing who is going to buy it.

    YUP! Diner was awesome, this could be another cool non licensed. Lots of options on how to play/rules! I'll be excited to see how it turns out.

    Couldn’t they have added just a little panache to the name?

    “Food Truck Frenzy” or “Food Truck Fever” instead of just Food Truck?

    With a concept this mind-blowingly innovative, I can see why Deep Root was so intent on defending blackface Barry's choice of Halloween Costumes. You just can't let this kind of genius out of the building, even if it comes with "baggage."

    Lol nobody

    It could be fun if every once in a while a "health department inspector" is scheduled to come to look at your truck. But you have to quickly put everything away and hit the road so they don't fine you.

    Wait... this ISN’T a snarky Pinside joke thread?

    Its whatever you'd like it to be *wink*

    I’m sure the layout is a fusion of TAXI and DINER.

    /actually it’s just a box of lights and a free-2-play “burger builder” game you play on the android tablet they bolted to the front

    Stay tuned for their next game called "coffee shop"

    another great idea for a theme.

    #16 33 days ago

    I wonder how much it would cost to license Peter Pepper and make it a Burger Time game. At least that would have some nostalgia with the core pin buying demographic.

    #17 33 days ago

    This kind of theme (the exact one) has been done a hell of a lot in the last 30 years.

    Pinball people: "Give us original themes!!!"

    Pinball Industry: "Here".

    Pinball people: "No! Not like that! More like comic book super heroes and rock bands!"

    #18 33 days ago

    The list of titles deeproot is planning is a complete head scratcher to me.

    #19 33 days ago

    I think this theme sounds great.

    #20 33 days ago

    Another dumb idea I had by thinking about Overcooked

    In between serving people you have to wash dishes/wipe the service counter by swiping the lockdown bar. If you don't clean, you get lower food reviews and the health inspector is summoned faster (see my previous post re: health inspectors). It's something silly to do, makes use of the touch screen, and it's fun to watch people struggle as they move their hands around the cabinet.

    Or if you're a super serious player who hates fun, you let everything be dirty and it makes the game more challenging.

    #21 33 days ago

    Give me a great playing game for less money because you're not paying royalties to some already rich people and im down with that...

    #22 33 days ago

    Theme gives me a better feeling than deeproot.

    #23 31 days ago

    So much excitement, I can't believe original themes don't sell! What a lie! lol

    #24 31 days ago

    I want to know what the social media rules in food truck will be. How does deeproot think social media works?

    #25 31 days ago

    You guys think Deadpool will show up if you choose to sling chimichanga’s in campaign mode?

    #26 31 days ago

    Some concept art from their instagram, there's more on there but no recent updates.

    I can’t believe they didn’t think of this title.
