I hope they make another cartoon theme.

I heard scooby doo with an under play field.

Scooby doo would be great. I think this was my favorite cartoon, now I'm 53. I still have that nostalgia on Scooby. I have often thought a Scooby pin could rock.

I would like a Warner brothers / bugs bunny far less. But that one also has the nostalgia for some people.

How bout an outer limits?

BULL SHIT ART ISTS.

The ideas I would love to see, but probably would not sell enough:

1. Lovecraft/Arkham Horror/Cthulhu- deep IP to mine with lots of directions you could go and a public domain option
2. Venture Bros. - IMO a better show than R&M, but I like 70s Doctor Who and so my preference is suspect.
3. Big Trouble in Little China

Quoted from Kkoss24:

I’m with you .Would be all over a “Shining” pin but would take anything that will scare the shit outta me .

Holy [email protected]#$ could you imagine a pin that wasntt only Horror themed, but actually designed to actually scare you!
programmed to do creepy shit, totally random turn on by itself and start a game, appear off, but say creepy crap at total random after crazy long periods, hologram hidden in backglass comes out during game play to eff with you and scare you into loosing your ball. occasionally takes over your game play and plays it self.
Hell Yeah!

Hell Yeah!

It doesn’t even need a licensed theme .Just call it “possessed” and I like that what you said where the game takes over and plays and you do t know when you get control again .

Quoted from Coindork:

I would buy pretty much all of the above mentioned themes.
Other main stream horror/sci-fi titles I think could be cool:
Swamp Thing
Phantasm
Toxic Avenger
Hellraiser
The Thing
Dawn of the dead
Shaun of the dead
Zombieland
The fifth element
Serenity
Blade Runner
War of the worlds
They live
Pretty much anything horror, sci-fi or monster related.
Whatever it is, I’m in.
Let me know when to send a deposit.

Hellraiser would be a killer theme for me. Imagine Pinhead's face on the backglass looking down at you. Gives me chills thinking about it

I have zero insider info so this is all WAG.

R&M is going quick/on time to be done in June ish.

We will see a limited and final run of TNA (2.0/ remix where it is the same game in a std cabinet and with the updated mods/add-ons). I would guess this will be extremely limited (150 or a timed release to meet exact demand of orders would be a cool think to do). That takes up 20ish weeks on the line with switch over and getting team rocking on that build again. TNA 2.0 is done around Oct.

We get the announcement of next title around Halloween 2021 with the game debut at the Nov MGC show (likely the first show back at a safe point in 2021). First 10 games delivered to the show and set up for play there.

As for title... I would love many of the ones already stated in the thread. I think niche adult comedy with cult followings work super well for the spooky model of 750-1000 games in a run. Voice assets/ music assets/ and a good license to work with is key to what they offer.

Biggest thing I would like to see for Spooky is slowing down the line to ensure more consistency and QC of build.
I see the primary lessons to be learned form R&M is they likely got just slightly too big too fast. Lots of new hands learning the ropes has caused some dumb mistakes. This needs to be addressed via "idiot proofing" a few things. Ex: dimple the tops side for precise rail placement is key. Bottom side is done and consistent. Top side needs that same engineering for play consistency.

Next biggest thing is concern over what code team they have. Eric P has set a new high bar. Spooky needs to bring on more support to code at this level and pace. Please invest in your code team Charlie

Bevis and butthead would be amazing

#63 10 months ago

How about one based on that Identity movie.....Scary rain effects..Or 13 Ghost movie...

#64 10 months ago
Quoted from docquest:

I'm seeing a trend here.
Custom Bruce Campbell callouts would GROOVY!

Godmode theme.
- allright you primitive pin-heads. Listen up!

Really hard to see a better suited theme for spooky.

#65 10 months ago

Tna 2.0 would be a great time filler while next game is being tweaked.

#66 10 months ago

How about Spooky take on Sterns superhero themes with The Boyz Pinball!?

Butchers quotes alone would be worth the price of admission.

#67 10 months ago

I can't believe I didn't think of this one before but "Todd and the Book of Pure Evil" would make a great pin.

If you haven't seen it go check it out. It's a TV series with similarities to Evil Dead but metal themed. It's great. Probably too unknown to sell well as it was only on for 2 seasons. I think some of it you can watch on Youtube now.

#68 10 months ago

Seeings how Spooky loves to release music themes - Rob Zombie and Alice Cooper, as does the whole industry (see Stern and JJP’s efforts). I think Spooky should stick to a theme with heavy musical elements. Given they like quirky and spooky stuff too and that leads me to suggest 3 themes for 2021 -> Weird Al, Pee Wee’s Adventures or Wayne’s World. Wayne & Garth would be highly coveted.

Oh man, talk about theme integration!!

I'd be down for a Nightmare Before Christmas pin.

As Spooky continues to fill out their run of Rick and Morty Machines, it looks more and more likely SPOOKY will be doing TNA 2.0 next. Danesi has said that he is updating the code for 2.0, and will drop new code along with it's release that will work on the first run machines already produced, so a huge code update is coming up... yay Danesi, yay Spooky!

Danesi TWIP quote from Just Another Pinball Podcast:
Scott Danesi: I have some big things planned for when TNA gets rerun. So I have been working on the software. And when TNA rerun happens, I am going to launch code for that game which is also backwards compatible with existing machines. Everyone wins…the TNA games that come out, the remake ones are going to be wired the same way, they will have the same computers in them. They will be as same as possible to the originals, because I want the code to run on [both].

As a TNA owner, I'm excited to see how my game changes.

However, we are still no closer to knowing what the next Spooky game after TNA 2.0 is.

They obviously had a hit with Rick and Morty, but I don't know what could be next for them that they could possibly get that would get that kind of reception. I think it more likely that they will do another horror theme, but still have no idea.

Does the rumour mill have any ideas?

#76 8 months ago

Please do Megadeth!!

#77 8 months ago

Hell of and idea kind sir.

Predator or Robocop, would 100% be my first Spooky pin.

If they get evil dead and campbell to do call outs. It would be so bloody awesome, also lots of great things in the movies usable in a pinball machine.

As much as I want a badass evil dead pin..please not yet. My wallet and space can't take it

If it is Evil Dead I’m in 100%.
My wife would probably divorce me if I didn’t buy it.

All BS aside though, I’m pretty much down for whatever they have coming up. We have 3 Spooky at the moment and looking forward to adding a 4th.
Would still like to get a TNA if the right one presents itself as well.

#83 8 months ago

Just do Ramones already.

Before they do the next one, they really should finish the code for their earlier games. People are still waiting for the Dominos code. I'm still waiting for RZ. The wait time is getting ridiculous and it's highly disappointing how little they care. Probably gonna prevent me from buying another Spooky title anytime soon.

MXC !

#86 8 months ago

TNA 2.0 with better playfield artwork and mysterious enhanced code and I’m in. So following that, what do i want to see from Spooky ???

I’d like Halloween or Scary Movie or South Park or Predator or Five Finger Death Punch. All of which Spooky could do well.

Quoted from Lame33:

3. Big Trouble in Little China

No brainer here

#91 8 months ago

Themes I'd like to see Spooky tackle would include:

1) Scooby Doo
2) King of Tokyo (Board Game)
3) Haunted Mansion
4) Universal Monsters
5) Nightmare Before Christmas

#92 8 months ago

Spooky + SAW + loads of mechs/traps = instant by from me!

#93 8 months ago

Sounds like TNA 2.0 is up next. From what Charlie has said in the last few months Spooky has it's next 3 or 4 games planned.

I'm praying that one is a John Carpenter film.
Big trouble in little China
Escape from New York
The Thing
Prince of Darkness
Halloween
They Live.

I'll take any of the above.

Would anyone here like to see this cult classic given the spooky treatment?
“Wolfman’s got Nards”

You can’t make a statement like that without some more information. What are your issues?

The idea that you have to do so many "fixes" and the bass rattle, and the fan noise, flipper cooling fans, pf issues galore! The ship has sailed on this title!!

#97 8 months ago

I’ve got a Rick & Morty on location. It’s holding up great. I had to do very few things out of the gate.

Broken record from someone who has never physically owned the game and has bashed Spooky from the start.
