A really cool castle like sculpture needed.

Quoted from drfrightner:

Kaneda is saying the next title will be Halloween. I can believe it and honestly I said it myself Halloween makes a ton of sense because ...

Kaneda has been wrong before and I hope he’s wrong this time too. I would have to see it first, but I would likely pass on a Halloween pin. I like spooky themed pins that are light-hearted like ACNC or EHoH, not bloody/evil like I think a Halloween would be.

#1403 6 months ago

Believe it or not there is hardly a drop of blood shown in Halloween 1.
Mostly suspence.
It's not till part 2 in 1982, that things get red.
And Myer's only kills 5 that we know of in the film.
His Sister, tow truck driver, and Laurie's 3 friends.
Oh, and maybe a cat or raccoon.

#1404 6 months ago

I’m kind of thinking it’s not Halloween. The shared pic just doesn’t feel like Halloween and with production supposedly up to 1000 I feel like they will make a safer bet. With that being said, I think Halloween would be a really cool outside of the box choice.

#1405 6 months ago

TRICK or treat...

...it's not Halloween

If it is Little Shop of Horrors I may be in trouble.

Probably troling for spooky on the sly Pmsl

Imagine if it comes out and it's actually "Haunted House Party".

Including Universal monsters, Jason, Freddy, Dracula, Alice Cooper, Beetlejuice, Rob Zombie, etc... Lol

That would be an epic mindblower from Spooky!

Same here Haha

#1410 6 months ago

Yeah, my better half loves the musical.

#1411 6 months ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

Halloween never did anything for me....but, my wife loves it. It's hard to imagine it working for pinball with a silent bad guy, though. I love my Dracula, and part of that is Dracula's callouts. Horror icons like Freddy or Chucky...they talk a lot (and can be funny, too). Michael Meyers? Eh.
Well, we'll see...gotta see it all first before making a decision.

This is a great point, who would do the call outs? Gotta say, I was really hoping for Evil Dead.

Do we know when the game will be announced?

#1412 6 months ago

Regardless of the theme, I’m sure Spooky will crush it. However, I’m hoping it’s not Halloween, and I’m a huge Halloween fan.

The Halloween movies aren’t fun (except III). The first one is a classic, and some of the sequels are decent enough, but they don’t make you clap or smile or scream. Evil Dead or Friday the 13th do those things because they’re scary enough without being too realistic and silly enough without being straight up comedy.

I’m sure Spooky will do it right, whatever the theme.

#1413 6 months ago
Quoted from thirdedition:

Yeah, my better half loves the musical.

She’s not the only one. Little Shop, Bugsy Malone and Blues Brothers are the only three musicals that would be instant buys for us.
Honestly I know Rocky Horror is universally loved but neither of us can stand it.

I can't believe all of the people voicing thier displeasure with the idea of Spooky making a real horror pin. There are a dozen other manufacturers making games with family friendly themes. Plently to pick from. There have only been a few horror games over the last few decades... BSD, TWD and Mystery Castle? Spooky doesn't need to sell thousands of units. We are way past due and Spooky is the company to deliver. Having said that, I'm not sure how well Halloween works as a pinball theme. It will be interesting to see how they pull that off, if that's really the theme. I have my doubts that it is.

#1416 6 months ago

Do we know who is designing and coding?

There have been a few depending on how flexible you are with the word “horror”. Spooky/haunted may be a better word choice. Here are the remaining I can think of:
Alien, HH, Elvira 1/2/3, ACNC, AMH, MB, CFTBL, POTO, TAF, TFTC, MSF, Munsters, Medusa

#1419 6 months ago

I'm all for a real horror theme to be applied to pinball vs. the campy nonsense we usually get. I would love Halloween. Something new to the hobby (or at least something we haven't seen in a LONG time)? Yes please.

#1420 6 months ago

I'm sure if it was done right it would be great. Look at Alien.

That being said, that artwork if actually not a red herring doesn't give me Halloween vibes.

#1421 6 months ago

Halloween is a slasher film not horror.

Quoted from blueberryjohnson:

After saying it would not be a horror movie. Got it

DEER god? Heard ya loud and clear. It’s Evil Dead / Army of Darkness

Quoted from benheck:

Deer God. If Pinside had existed in 1963 ya'll would have solved the Zapruder film in 17 minutes.

I was excluding the campy comedy or rock n roll hybrids, and anything pre-DMD. Still, good call on Alien. I knew I was forgetting something.

Quoted from riggy469:

Welp guess not
[quoted image]

this color theme reminds me of something very 80s and Orco's outfit has these colours too. Also what it looks like a tire thread, reminds me of the actual castle stones, bricks...

I think it is He-Man and if it is.... well, I will be 10K poorer.

I will say this, it's not God damn f'ing Beetlejuice.

This isn't a misdirection. IT IS NOT BEETLEJUICE.

Kind of like Munsters I wish somebody would just freaking make Beetlejuice already so it can not sell many copies and people will finally stop asking for it (kind of like Munsters)

Well you know what they say about opinions Ben, they’re like A-holes, everyone’s got one!
I tell you this though, It would sell a crap load more than Duck Tales would.

If you just told us what the title actually IS we would stop speculating .

Hmmm...Ben has now denied it's Beetlejuice three times, aka Beetlejuice confirmed. PS: I do think there are well over 1,000 buyers for a Beetlejuice pinball machine. It's a way better them then Munsters.

#1430 6 months ago

If it was Predator with full assets it’d sell out in 5 minutes.

#1431 6 months ago

I am pretty sure it is He-Man...

#1432 6 months ago

In that case it might be She-Ra !!!

I notice you only claim that Once.

#1435 6 months ago

I’m down for He-Man!

#1436 6 months ago

According to the EXIF data, the image was rotated 180 degrees after the original picture was taken. The bottom right is actually the top left.

#1437 6 months ago

Jesus I hope it is not He-Man.

#1438 6 months ago

So the original photo was taken like this? It’s DEFINITELY BEETLEJUICE then haha

So it's a stone archway/doorway of some kind, with a banner under it, presumably with the name of the game written on it.

Halloween? i would prefer the halloween fete than the movie.

but i really hope it won't be halloween but Scooby Doo, fear, ghost, food, run, hiding, fun, humour

#1442 6 months ago
Quoted from rai:

Agreed. There's a reason why 200 people gave money to a dumb redneck who put the word PREDATOR on the side of a box with a shitty clunkfest of a wet turd game inside.

It (and Die Hard) are slam-dunk bullseyes IP for the primary pinball demographic.

I do know one thing, most of us will be wrong. Flashbacks of the Stern puzzle teaser that wasn’t a pin but an actual puzzle.

#1445 6 months ago

Spooky isn’t nearly as crass as Stern… I’m sure this is a photo of the actual cabinet.

#1446 6 months ago

Spooky also made real fake Haunted House Party cabs to troll…

But agreed what they recently shared was probably legit

I hope they do the thing of showing the underside off before the top. That was fun to figure out. Some people got pretty close in guessing the top side.

#1447 6 months ago

I know that he's given us multiple hints that it might be Evil Dead themed.....but can we trust him...hmm...maybe just wishful thinking on his part.

Also, do we even have so much as a fake name for the new machine?

#1448 6 months ago

Is this another one from Scott?

I know, but my point was that everyone was wrong. So many wild guesses and speculation.

[quoted image]

the shadows do not make sense so that is not the natural orientation of the actual drawing, it might have been auto rotated by the gyroscope in the phone and then rotated again by editing.
