Quoted from dnaman:

yes, sends you to a payment portal from what I recall.

Thanks. Took the plunge. I’m fangin’ baby!

Charlie, what’s the other theme? Don’t leave me fangin’!

#4902 5 months ago

Well, the other theme is chuck-ie... Of course

#4903 5 months ago

Let it be Escape From New York, please pinball gods.

Halloween + Freddy is my guess

That’s what special-K guessed a month ago.

#4905 5 months ago

After much thought

Bella Lugosi Dracula

#4906 5 months ago

I still dont get this approach. It would seem like a waste of resources and diminished margins to add more coding , art, sculpts for 2 pins at the same number as one bigger theme.

It was there all along!

Quoted from aeonblack:

I'm a simple man, I hear "John Carpenter" and I start throwing money. I'll buy whatever the hell this is. Fang Club renewed.

The Thing. The Fog. Escape from NY. Halloween. Christine. His music pulls me in. A must have pin if design looks interesting.

#4909 5 months ago

It’s gotta be one game w/ multiple Carpenter themes. It’s the only thing that makes sense to me.

Build it and they will come.

Quoted from SpookyLuke:

But wait what if this game has 2 themes? Other theme could be dropped any time I bet...

... RAZA?

So many awesome movies! I would love an apocalypse trilogy pin (The Thing, Prince Of Darkness, In The Mouth Of Madness).

#4914 5 months ago

Oh snap!... just checked back on this forum and I'm pulled back in.... What is going on... this is crazy... peoples "pets heads falling off" crazy! .... No way its another horror theme of the other big 3... F13/Nightmare/Texas . Charlie probably wants a dedicated machine to those as he passionate about horror.. so my guess is the two versions of Halloween. Original and Robs versions. Since the lisc IP was probably all the same cost.

Other guess would be The Thing.. but that's pretty strong Lisc and could hold its own as is...

Just take my money!!!! love what you guys are doing... Totally support you guys because I support Horror Pinball

#4915 5 months ago

My money is on Killer Klowns!

When does Spooky typically reveal more about their games?

Around Halloween.

And of course his first commercial film, Assault on Precinct 13, who can forget that theme song?

Huh. Whadda know. It wasn't Scooby Doo, Beetlejuice or Evil Dead after all. Who knew?
Oh right. I did.

It’s actually smart if the 2nd theme is something that appeals to a totally different demographic. Not everyone likes Halloween or wants a horror pin. Making something that appeals to another set of buyers is smart. The horror peeps get their game, other buyers can pick something else. They can have the same code/rules with animation/sound swapped. Not too hard on programming. Not hard on the factory since they’re built & wired the same. Pretty much what Stern did with FG/Shrek…but simultaneous launch.

I respect your opinion but the company is called Spookey... you have 5 other pinball companies that are making non horror games to pick from.

#4922 5 months ago

Maybe it's Napoleon Dynamite. This would of been a great counter theme to Rick and Morty.

#4923 5 months ago
Quoted from TheFamilyArcade:

The page on Spookys website where you buy your Fang Club membership is “Not Secure” according to my browser. What’s up with that? Not inputing my CC # there was if it’s insecure.
Or does it send you to a secure payment portal?

It sends you to a secure page at checkout.

Toy Story

#4925 5 months ago

Likely JJP on ToyStory.

I agree!

#4927 5 months ago

If there is indeed another theme, I’d be willing to bet it’s another John Carpenter property since Spooky got the Halloween license. I’m a huge Carpenter fan, so really anything from his early library would be awesome.

#4928 5 months ago

it would be kind of silly to do two horror themes.

#4929 5 months ago

please be they live

#4930 5 months ago
Quoted from Chet_Hardbody:

This.

#4931 5 months ago

Two lines with the same basic build process is a good way to ramp up production with baby steps. Spooky has always been smart with their growth.

But what if it's Ghosts of Mars?

Yeah but when that company's two best selling games aren't horror expectations change

#4934 5 months ago

I think the second theme has to be Haunted House Party. From what I remember from a few interviews, while that ruse was building the details on the fake game kept getting better to the point the entire story and rules were fleshed out. If the Halloween PF is being built around the neighborhood from the movie, it wouldn't be hard to imagine similar sculptures and layout based on a block party. That would line up with the Kaneda rumor; super niche and a little self indulgent.

We know the theme, and that photo still is confounding!

We know ONE of the themes

Exactly... build up the fan base and company money then be able to build the machines they truly want to do.... they are smart people.

Unless it's the other theme...

Dun dun dunnnnn

#4941 5 months ago

Drop a muppets pin. That would kick it up a notch for release 2.

Pigs in space

#4942 5 months ago

This might be a decent compromise for Spookys next pin

Would make sense if they were like Stern with unlimited production capacity (well, before Covid) and the goal was to sell as many as possible. But Spooky has very limited capacity and would sell out the entire run with Halloween.

Why not sell out & produce the entire run of Halloween then start the new game?

To me, offering 2 different games only makes sense if they are both super niche titles. Halloween is not everyone’s cup of tea, but in the horror world it’s definitely not super niche.

Don't you dare!

#4947 5 months ago
Quoted from mrclean:

This two game thing being released at the same time had me thinking...
Is it entirely possible that Spooky would simultaneously release two titles with the same playfield overall layout just two different themes? Similar to when Stern did Family Guy & Shrek ?!

Holy shit crazy news!...can’t believe what I miss when I go to dinner with my wife... never again!!! I posted this 25 days ago!! Please be Killer Klowns From Outer Space as title #2!

Ummmmm, you do realize all spooky games besides Rick and Morty were horror related right? Right?

Haven’t they recently moved to a bigger building & hired more staff? This is a good way to test building more orders without having to build different machines.

#4950 5 months ago

Anyone know if Spooky will be at Pinfest in Allentown? Did they say whether the new pin(s) will be there?
