I'm more interested in the 2nd game they're making with the same playfield.

Where are you getting this from?

#54 5 months ago

I heard Spooky said there is a 2nd theme on the same machine? So Halloween and?

#55 5 months ago

And you wonder why prices continue to go up. Sad.

#56 5 months ago

Per Kaneda, Luke at Spooky confirmed there's a 2nd title with the same playfield design.

I'm really excited to see how many people preorder and then find a way to jack the price up at least a couple thousand over what they paid "just because", and then watching people pay the artificially jack prices up all while wondering why MSRP keeps increasing.

Lol true.

I plan to preorder and sell it about a month before the machine ships if anyone is interested in post-pre-ordering from me.
PM me, only 30% markup from MSRP for my spot!

I want to know where that tease picture fits because I thought for sure it was a medieval tapestry pointing to AOD.

Fast fact. Michael Myers mask is William Shatner's face.

#65 5 months ago

I'm so in on this dream title.......

So where and when can we order it?

Thanks

#4779 in The Next Spooky Pin thread.

Wasn't confirmed until Charlie told him to get in his office.

What a breath of fresh air this is! The kids shows/movies, superhero’s and music pins are great and all but this is a very nice and welcome change!
Looking forward to this one. Way to go Spooky!

And my cabinet and playfield will be more shiny [quoted image]

And your PF probably won't be full of dimples after 100 plays either, nevermind, thinking of Stern

I dont think spooky has that problem

Me bad, Stern of course

#71 5 months ago

Not sure I can handle that creepy music playing constantly. Might be able to change it up but without that it won't be Halloween!

That is Stern (well and CGC on remakes), but by the time I’m done with clear mine won’t dimple if you hit it with a hammer.

Quoted from finnflash:

My RaM had dimples after 100 plays. All clear coated playfields dimple after playing them, it’s the simple physics of a metal ball hitting wood. Nothing unusual.

The clear was much better I’ll say on a spooky Playfield than a Stern.

They use their own maker, and I can't recall the company name now, but comparing my ACNC playfield to my re-cleared TZ and Big Ben playfield, it is rather sturdy and good workmanship there that they're producing.

Stoked. Who will do call outs though? Pleasance died, Curtis is too expensive. Busta Rhymes is probably needing some cash right now.

They can just use audio from the film

You need a voice telling the player what to do.

That is why deaf people can't play pinball? No idea what to shoot for lol.

Need to see it but this could be my first spooky. I really hope its based on the first 2 films. They scared the shit out of me when I was young fella. Still do.

Can I try?

#83 5 months ago

I'd like a shot at it, too!!!

Certainly. We can film it and put it in the 48 Stern dimpling threads.

They don't even have anything to dimple.

In for a collectors edition. Halloween is one of my favorite movies.

Edmiston's work on a butter cabinet is going to be beautiful

#90 5 months ago

So how does this Spooky Fang Club work? I bought a membership as soon as I heard about the new game. I was thinking I was going to get an email or something but nothing has appeared yet.

Within the next 48 hours, you should wake up with fang marks on your neck. I wouldn’t recommend going out into the sunlight afterwards.

#92 5 months ago

Would most agree that Spooky is better build quality than stern by leaps and bounds?

#93 5 months ago

Interested... now what edition to select.

I only have one spooky R and M w/ butter cab. Build quality better ? yes.

#95 5 months ago

It’s not looking like this game has any pops, eh?

Playfield is way better

Quoted from 27dnast:

I was actually thinking the other day that it would be good for Spooky to skip pop bumpers on this one. Pops are really noisy and I could see their sound breaking up the tension and/or overpowering the film music/score on the pin.

Are all three of the Backglass / Translite the same? Hoping the CE is different.

#100 5 months ago

I'll almost 100% be in on Halloween, and almost 100% be in for a CE. I love John Carpenter and while I wish it was an Apocalypse Trilogy pin (The Thing, Prince Of Darkness, In The Mouth Of Madness), I'm pumped on this! I wrote up some thoughts in the other thread but they got buried by people speculating on the second games titles.

Here is a break from all the speculation with some of my own thoughts on potential gameplay and rules for Halloween without any thought given to anything except theme and the basic story beats of the first movie.

*Playing as Michael Myers*
-Kill sister
-Escape Smiths Grove Sanitorium
-Return home (and see Laurie Strode)
-Stalk Laurie
-Spy on babysitter Annie Brackett, kill the dog and kill her
-Kill Bob Simms, put on ghost costume and pose as him, then kill Lynda Van Der Klok
-Stalk and attack Laurie, she escapes
-Sneak into Doyle house where Laurie is hiding and attack her again, she stabs you with a knitting needle and escapes
-Awaken, search house and find her hiding in the closet, she stabs you with a coat hanger in the eye and chest with your own knife
-Awaken again, find Laurie, attempt to attack her, she pulls your mask off, Loomis shoots you.
-Awaken, escape, begin again

This would lose a lot of the menace, dread and atmosphere that the movie has, but would have the deepest options for rules. Making shots to progress the story, "side quests" to deal with non-laurie/non-loomis stuff, building a dread meter, etc. Could be some really fun bonus multiplier stuff through the use of that. I'm not a fan of bonus multipliers, but it's one way to do it that is actually interesting and makes sense to the theme. "Winning" would be just progressing the beats of the story, maybe doing some extra kills for points, etc.

*Playing as Laurie*
Lots of evasion, making shots to fight back against Michael, investigating different locations, etc. Not a super dull way to do it, as the looming menace of Michaels approach and presence would make for great atmosphere, but definitely wouldn't have the deepest rules if going purely from a movie-beats standpoint. I could see a "win" scenario of going off the path of the movie by warning and saving others from being killed. It would be really fun to have a "final girl" multiball where making shots fights back against him. This would be more of a meta thing, but could be really bad ass. I wouldn't mind if the gameplay beats didn't stick strictly to the movie beats. It's not a deep movie, as some have griped about, but that doesn't mean you're completely handcuffed to it. The idea of Michael as an unkillable force of nature (as John Carpenter and Deborah Hill intended) and Laurie as a true Final Girl is pretty much canon at this point so I can't see the license being adverse to that.

*Playing as Dr. Samuel Loomis*
-Bumble your way through ineptitude and thousand-yard-stare warnings as Michael escapes from your custody, steals your car and kills people because you were useless
-Shoot him, but don't kill him, because you can't even get that right
Just kidding, but I would mostly see this an "investigator" style of gameplay where you follow the leads to find Michael while trying to warn others of the danger of him. It would have a lot in common with Laurie mode of helping others, but I can't see it as being nearly as fun.

*Playing as a random*
-This is a classic license approach, don't use stars because they cost too much and don't want to do the voice work, get some other voice actor to do the voice work, make the game loosely tied to the movie at best. Throw in some story locations and beats to tie it in. Walking Dead is a perfect example of this. As Walking Dead (eventually) proved, the game can be good despite that flaw, so it's not a total bummer, but it does take away from the game some.
-I can see gameplay for this being very open ended and actually giving way to a much deeper ruleset since it's not handcuffed to anything in particular. The problem with this movie is that there isn't any great choices for the character you play as, it's a pretty small story. Maybe a police officer? Sheriff Leigh Brackett? That would work well for tying in with the babysitter/his daughter.

Basically, I don't see this as a super deep game unless they go with a meta-gameplay route, but I don't think that hurts the game at all. The theme is an absolute killer, the artwork (so far) looks amazing, and I can't wait to see what they do with it!
