I have been loving my Total Nuclear Annihilation so much that I've been inspired to try my hand at building my own game. I've been thinking about a theme for awhile and think Pink Floyd is what I'm going to focus on. I came to the idea because Dark Side of the Moon is my favorite album of all time and watching the amazing light show on TNA just make me think how cool it would be to make some psychedelic light shows on a DSOTM pinball.
I'm going to use a firepower I just picked up at the Ohio Show as the donor machine. I originally purchased the game as project but have moved it into the parts category because it is just too far gone to bring back to life economically.
I plan on using the Firepower layout as a base with some alterations.
I'm looking to the community here to help me with rules and modes and gameplay suggestions as well as selecting the best hardware.
I think I'm going to go with the mission pinball framework to build the game since I am really familiar with Python already and have gone thru the documentation and it looks pretty solid.
I am also leaning towards using fast pinball hardware and a LCD display as the screen.
I'm not sure what to use as far as a PC for running the actual game. I'd like to use a Raspberry Pi but it seems like it might not be powerful enough. Any suggestions?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here are some pics of the donor machine.
