Here's my very strong argument FOR the use of movie clips in a movie-themed pinball game....my remastered version of Jurassic Park. But only if used creativity and only when used to compliment the action on the playfield. Nothing must get in the way of the game of pinball and if you can creativily enhance the experience for the player using clips, then it can create a fantastic immersive experience.
This is just a short clip but you can see how I integrate the scene in the movie with the action on the playfield, even syncing the shaker motor to match the action on screen. All this combined with a killer light show, will give you the player, the most immersive game of pinball you've ever played.
Now I've been using movie clips in my games since 2011. In fact I was the first to use a colour LCD on the backbox, when I added full colour movie clips to my version of Stern's Iron Man. I can tell you now that no one at Stern or Jersey Jack knows how to properly use this asset. You can't just play a boring clip for no reason! Only Heighway Pinball's Alien (which so happended to be the compnay I worked for) had any clue how to use movie clips properly.
For the past 10 years I've coded about 60 pinball games, including rewritting the complete code for games such as Transformers, Indiana Jones, Tron Legacy, Iron Man, Star Trek, Spiderman....and I've added movie clips to all of them, fully integrated for a much more exciting and immersive gameplay expeience. The kind of pinball games you all want but no one is making.
If you think I'm full of shit, you can download and play my version of Jurassic Park by downloading it from my website and see for yourself. Yes it's virtual pinball but it's a decent demonstration of how pinball in 2019 should be when using a bit of creative imagineering. You can also download Jaws, Robocop, Iron Man and many other games I've created.
I know excatly the kind of games you guys want because I've been making them for the past 10 years. I am looking for work so Stern if you're hiring...
I have been approached by a brand new company who are about to announce their existance so I'm hoping I can make it back into the industry. But in the meantime, I need an outlet for my creativity and virtual pinball is a pretty decent one.
