Special When Lit podcast reported that American Pinball's next game is not a pinball Some sort of big redemption (ticket) game, they wouldn't give any info past that. Disappointing that they're putting time/effort into redemption games but hopefully it makes them a ton of money they can roll back into pinball development.

Quoted from Charlemagne1987:

Wow! That's extremely disappointing. I hope the podcast is wrong. I'm looking to buy one more awesome game for my collection next year. I was thinking it would be Sherlock Holmes or Robin Hood from American, but if they spend the year making a ticket redemption game I guess I'll look elsewhere for my next game. Thanks for posting that update.

It was stated as fact, sounded like the guys on the podcast had seen the new game in person but didn't want to say anymore than that until American makes an official announcement. Very disappointing for me too, was really hoping for another cool pin out of them in the near future.

Quoted from DanDanDAN:

You can work on two things at the same time you know!

No, impossible If there's more pinball in the pipeline then it's all good, I've just got a personal vendetta against redemption games after watching every arcade I grew up with turn into child-gambling venues. Would suck to see a cool company go that way too, but I won't get too worried until the name changes to American Amusement.

Quoted from DanDanDAN:

This I can 100% confirm

Phew, now I can speculate on the redemption game in good faith. Special When Lit mentioned the footprint of the game is huge, I'm really hoping for one of the Japanese style marble-pushers with tons of trails + ramps. Had a blast playing those with my girlfriend while over there recently. Any idea when the redemption game reveal will be, or when we'll get any info on the next pin?

Quoted from bobukcat:

I know the most prevalent rumor is that it will be SH but based on Josh's comments about themes he loves on one podcast I listened to I don't think it will be next. He mentioned that it would be one of his "grail" themes and they would need a LOT of time to work on it get it to a level he would be willing to accept so my guess is we see something else as their next pin and maybe SH in another year or so if they are working on it in the background / simultaneously. This is all just rampant conjecture and guessing on my part but that's what these threads are for, right?

After their recent Facebook post about the code update w/ a picture of Matrix-style green binary, I can't get the idea of a Matrix pin out of my head. They'd be the company to do it right.

Is anyone at IAAPA Expo? American said they'd be showing "something NEW and different" (redemption game) there today. Just curious to see what it is, even if it's not pinball.
