Thanks! I’ll start reading up on this.

So Riot is currently building sample #6 for Scott while it shops the game around. In the interim, how about making a dozen production games for those at top of list? These game should include physical and software feedback from sample games which establishes that a consistent, reliable final model of the game can be built. 10 games could go to to enthusiasts, one to Riot and one saved for contract manufacturer to gauge his versus the final build state.

Great idea!! Now you must realize though that the elves in Norse mythology, álfar, are quite a bit different than Santa’s elves... so I’m not certain they’ll be up for building those 12 production games you’re hoping for.

Sorry for the poor attempt at humor... but I do think if this project keeps building steam like i expect it will, you and many others will get your wish for a production run. This game really does need to come to the masses... it’s that good!!

So I see how to collect weapons which allow me to access different tiers of modes.

How do I start a mode? Will modes always be ready to start as long as I have the required amount of weapons required to play a tier of modes and I’m not already in something else that locks out mode start?

#305 81 days ago

Start a battle by shooting the scoop, behind the middle left flipper, or right shooter lane. There are green arrows lit whenever a battle is ready (which is anytime some other hurryup or MB isn't in progress).
If you do not have enough weapons to play a battle, which is rare, the game will tell you to collect more weapons.
You have 4 battles available at game start and 1 weapon and only need 2 weapons (collect 1) to unlock the next 4 battles.

Have fun and take a video...

#308 81 days ago

Stream scheduled for 8/24! Sorry it wasn’t sooner. Had to work out stuff with my schedule.

I’ll be streaming from SDTMpinball on twitch and will be during the day like 1 or 2pm to 4pm. We will make sure and save to YT as well.

Eastern time.

#309 81 days ago

I very much hope you'll be able to mass produce this game. Licensed themes are nice. I own a bunch of them and will likely be buying more. But I love original themes like this one. In unlicensed pins you're free to let your creativity run wild without the limitations imposed by the license holders. And by the looks of it, you really ran with LOV. It looks so cool...plus I'm a huge fan of Viking history and lore. If this is mass produced, it's an immediate buy for me. Great work!

Thanks to those that tuned in, we are going to export the VOD over to Youtube here soon.

The video will be here for the next couple of weeks. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/701413732

I have to say this game is a ton of fun, we had an absolute blast playing it. The shots are great and the code seems to be very polished. Kudos to the Riot team, and a huge thanks to Frank Gigliotti for tuning in and giving us some guidance and tips.

Looks like you guys had a lot of fun playing; thanks for streaming! Great to hear you like the shots. This video and the game play is exactly why we were excited when Brad offered his game up. We have so much we can go back and look thru for improving on the next round of games both from a software and hardware side of things. Hopefully the next round comes sooner than later. Stay tuned...

I just played this at the Pinball Garage, and gotta say I was very impressed. Shots flowed well, artwork was great. Reminded me of a good WPC game. VERY well done.

Two issues we noticed:

1. Buddy asked me who made the game. I couldn't remember so just said to look on the machine. Well, we couldn't find anything. No mention of manufacturer or copyright anywhere, just the designer names on the right-hand rule card. No biggie but odd to not see a manufacturer name or logo anywhere on playfield, backglass or cabinet.

2. I was P1 on ball 3, shot the side ramp to load the ship for lock 3. Screen flashed lock 3, but the ball squirted out of the ship somehow and and drained SDTM. P2 stepped up to see "Next Jackpot 300K" or similar on the screen, and plunged into my multiball (he got autolaunches for the other balls). I don't think that's supposed to happen. FWIW, my lock 2 also failed to stay in the ship but I was able to catch it and keep playing.

#319 72 days ago

Thanks for playing our game and giving comments and glad you had a good experience.

The game you played is one of 6 sample games in the USA. This particular game is the only one in an arcade so we are gathering data from it.
Since its a sample game we do not have the RIOT PINBALL markings on the backglass/cabinet. The production games will have it for sure if we get it to production.

The ship lock incident you noticed has been reviewed and determined to be caused by an out of alignment ship post (that holds the balls in the ship). The owner knows of the issue and will be addressing it as soon as he can.
I'll have to grab the logs from your particular game since the game should compensate for a ball that is errantly released from the ship and not start multiball late. Once the ship post is aligned the owner can turn on physical locks again and 3 balls can be locked in the ship and start multiball.

#321 67 days ago

I fixed the ship lock issue and we are running a new, updated code! Swing back by for another game! It just keeps getting better and better!!!

Anything specific to note in the new code I won’t see on the rules list I have? Can’t wait to play this again Monday!

Plan is to have the stream set up by 2pm Monday the 24th. Possible I will have it ready to go before then so have notifications turned on! Eastern time.

Just a quick update for those following this thread. All six of the initial prototypes have been completed. So far so good. I built one final seventh prototype for myself. This one is called the "ALLFATHER EDITION" after the god Odin himself. Feels good to have the build complete... for now.

Also found these cool miniatures from the board game Blood Rage and took my first stab at painting them. I think a few will fit nicely in the game as a mod - Odin certainly looks like he'll find a place although I'm still working on a bracket for final placement. Hope the stream goes well tomorrow and thanks again to all for all of the feedback, it's been awesome.

#326 66 days ago

Honestly a no brainer. Perfect for anyone to pick up at this stage. Game is tried and true after 7 builds at a production quality equal or above that of most other manufacturers.

Also probably the best non licensed theme and execution of the theme of all time.

Blue it will look amazing next to a Bally Viking!

#328 65 days ago

Game looks complete except for .... a cool topper. It needs to be substantial, have lights, be interactive and at least the size of AFMr or MMr’s. If this pin was being released by any manufacturer, people would be screaming where’s the topper? I suggest getting out in front of the issue by creating and building seven (one per engineering samples) toppers now.

Imagine a lifelike bust of a Viking in armor staring down while you plunder the world.

Totally Agree. Blow way the competition on a topper.

#330 65 days ago

Totally agree. The recent homemade Iron Maiden toppers that was posted on FB would be a good model. Maybe even a skeleton Viking with axes behind it.

That Iron Maiden handmade topper is EPIC. Wow.

I was thinking something like this for the topper. JK.

#332 65 days ago

Scott, are you, Frank, and I the only ones that opted for the topper option?

I assumed all 7 went for that option...

#333 65 days ago

I'm ready. Bring it on.

#334 65 days ago

This looks really great. Will this be mass produced? or stopping with the seven? I think you could sell quite a few of these.

after all these years, its nice to see you actually back people who build complete machines before they try to sell them.

#336 65 days ago

Nice one Scott.

Art blades would also be awesome on production games or good old fashioned mirror blades.

I like the mini figs Scott. I still haven’t finalized what I want to do.

The add ons for LOV from ULEK store are going to take a bit. Dave is a bit busy.

#337 62 days ago

Reminder. I will be going live with this game tomorrow around 1:30-2pm eastern. Come check it out!

Recording from today’s stream. Might take a bit for 1080p to be available so might want to wait before trying to view. I almost got to Valhalla so you get to see a lot of the game in this video for those interested. This was new code as well. Enjoy!

I can’t stress enough how good this game is. Haha

#339 61 days ago

That was fun to watch! Thanks for streaming and playing so well.

#340 61 days ago

Thanks for the tips. It was very helpful and felt like I had a really good handle on the game towards the end. Read the rulesheet again after the stream and helped clear up some things too.

This machine will arrive in Europe?

Maybe, but game is not currently being produced. Riot is shopping the pin to find a manufacturer.

#345 57 days ago

Please! Please! Please! We need a good manufacturer to pick this up. Today Stern teased yet another Marvel game and word on the street is that JJP’s next will be Toy Story. I have zero interest in either of those offerings. But I’d be jumping out of my skin to get an LOV.

#348 51 days ago

Finished hand painting Odin and Hel. Created custom bases and brackets for them and mounted them in the game. Hel is an added bonus in that she is also helping with a ball trap in that area as well as pointing the way for the rapid fire of the ball exiting Hell via the scoop. And Odin, well, he just looks bad ass hovering between the gates of Valhalla, guarding their entrance. Thor is next and almost done...

#349 48 days ago

This game looks incredible!! I truly hope this gets picked up! There are not enough original games mass produced anymore. Don’t get me wrong, I do love licensed games but this feels so fresh. Wish I was closer to check it out in person! Well done, truly looks amazing.

#350 27 days ago

Just thought I’d jump in and say, love the play field, love the theme (see user name); and would love to hear some news on a manufacturer picking this game up... if not, how about a kit (play field/boards/ software/instructions). I’d have fun putting it together.
