Anyone out there enjoy the console/PC game “The Cave” created by Ron Gilbert? The artwork is great, the humor is dark and the storyline is entertaining to say the least. I’ve wanted to do a re-theme of an older pin into The Cave for a while now so a couple of months ago I picked up a neglected Stern Big Game pin that had been making the rounds on Kijiji for the past year or two. After setting it up in the garage and playing a few games (with the worst functioning flippers and pops I have seen anywhere, ever) it turned out to be a pretty darn fun game. Drops, pops and spinners, 80’s style.
I decided at the time to strip the cabinet down and redo the cabinet artwork in the style of The Cave game box art. This is about the absolute limit of my artistic talent so I employed some additional help from my wife (also doesn’t hurt to get some buy in on the project early since I was planning on stripping the playfield down in the dining room of all places…) I’m quite happy with the results!
