Quoted from stevevt:

"YES! Spooky is making Scott Danesi's Total Annihilation. More details to come over the next few months!"

Great news i'm very happy and happy for spooky such a awesome game can't wait i well def buy this and hope price turns out good.

Quoted from TheNoTrashCougar:

Thank you guys very much. I am so appreciative of the great feedback and comments! I am also extremely excited to see this thing make it out of my basement. I don't have too many things to reveal at this moment, but one very important and exciting thing I can reveal is that Matt Andrews will be handling the artwork for the entire project. He is a great guy and is extremely talented. Thank you guys once again, and thank you to all that helped me get the project where it is today!

Awesome Matt Andrews art is awesome and congrads scott that game is so awesome. For me the music sold game to me can't wait to see the art. I all ready sent kt a message to put me on the list i'm buying one for sure.

Quoted from Whysnow:

VERY excited for this!!

One of my favorite teams in all of pinball!

Quoted from FalconPunch:

So is it currently in a standard size cab? I know its a in a Dolly Parton... But is that the same playfield size as a standard Stern/Spooky game?

i think they said it be standard size but in a modern cab. Now they got to get it production ready.

#534 3 years ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

I sure hope the segments AND the display sticks!!!!!
I want Scotts original vision WITHOUT cost cutting! Please just make the game and let people decide. I'll pay for both the displays and the segments. It is part of the game, the retro vibe, the awesomness of seeing scores at all times, the over done nature of it. I love it all.

I 2nd that

Game looks bad ass love it def getting one

#1608 3 years ago

nvm this post i messed up lol (drunk)

#1758 3 years ago
Quoted from toyotaboy:

I think this is absolutely the issue. Stern moved to thicker clearcoat because that's what people want (old playfields used to wear), now they're dealing with all the issues that rushing a thick clearcoat comes with (ghosting, cracked clear).
Spooky I believe is up to maybe 2 games/day, Stern is around 50-60 per day.
All of this is a moot point though because every manufacturer (even spooky, unless they have a different method) should be ordering cleared playfields 2 weeks before production starts so that they fully cure, and playfields should be continued to order ahead of time. The playfield is the most crucial part seeing how it has the most labor.

I know that i had wait 14days or so for a AMH playfield to cure before spooky would ship it. So there doing it right and if you do have problem they all ways make it right.

I'm def buying this game the sound sold it for me and i forgot how fun alot of the 80's pins were before all the ramps/toys.

#1812 3 years ago

Does anyone know when they start to shipping for the 1st run and how many ?

#1869 3 years ago

I think adding some GLO BALLS would look awesome in this game.

Quoted from iEatHands:

That's not cool, hopefully that is just a mistake? hopefully..
Spooky website is still showing the $5,995 price.

I'm sure it's a typo as i don't think spooky would change the price like that. From what i understand it is 7k if you want direct printed cab with clear coat. Which is nice but not worth extra 1000 to me.

#2258 3 years ago
Quoted from SpookyCharlie:

Lol... hang in there! Doing our best... later tonight... or 8 a.m. central tomorrow if Kayte is looking fried and like she might be reconsidering a job change at work days end (which it rarely does here).

sounds like games are selling like hot cakes I getting mine from Pinball Star thx Joe

#2283 3 years ago
Quoted from SpookyCharlie:

HUGE thank you to everyone who put faith in this game, and made it A RECORD DAY AT SPOOKY!!!
We can't thank you enough for the patience... and I have a feeling once this game gets out there and played more, it's going to just keep going.
From our family to yours, THANK YOU. We don't take your support lightly... just glad to be here.

Thank you for making TNA and doing pinball the right way.

Quoted from TheNoTrashCougar:

Wait for underside pics until we make a production sample. My prototype is not zip tied correctly. I can tell you there will be 2 high quality service rails included on the game from the factory.

yay side rails

Quoted from herg:

So, there are going to be two service rails crammed into that?

Scott said there adding service rails awhile ago so i'm sure that still the case.

Wonder when there start production looks like there getting close

#3144 3 years ago
Quoted from TheNoTrashCougar:

The service rails will be in the game. No worries!

Quoted from johnnyutah:

For those that don't have Facebook updates:

See spooky is doing it right Easy updates unlike Homepin that claims we well screw it up if was usb lol

#3155 3 years ago
Quoted from konjurer:

Mike at Homepin is doing a lot of things right but I was shocked to hear him say that. There is no sane reason why you wouldn't want to be able to update in the home via USB. The cost associated with doing board swaps (the painful process was described by Mike) makes no sense.

Yeah i agree but some things he said on the podcast just made me do a face palm

» YouTube video

Great Stream the game looks bad ass congratulations Ed for getting 001 production game

#3249 3 years ago
Quoted from xizor:

So I want to be convinced to pre-order TNA.
The other spooky titles have not grabbed me before, but everything I've seen about this pin looks solid.
What is the build quality like with a spooky pin?

The build quality of spooky games are very good they have gotten even better with each game. Charlie was super fast to respond to any issues. Like with all pinball problems do come up nothing is 100% perfect in pinball. Spooky is awesome buy with confidence

#3275 3 years ago
Quoted from WeirPinball:

Let these guys breathe! You want good quality right? Let them get the assy down to a science and they will start cranking them out.

I agree and keep in mind this game has ton more wireing to do than most pinballs

How does it sound on location ? At the york show it sounded even with all the noise of a show

#3591 3 years ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

you could turn it up loud if you wanted as the whole sounds sytem is top notch for TNA.
As with most locations we have to tune the sound to match the quiet times of the bar (bar tenders tend to not want to hear a 'game' in the background during more chill times) which means it will never be as loud as I would like...
I did some rearranging to try and tuck it in a spot where the sound can be slightly louder (does not bounce as much to the main bar) I plan to fine tune things later tonight or Sat (I literally set it up just in time for the monthly meetup last night.

I had to push my TNA back some from number 90 to 124 so that i had more time due to my job/$$ issues. So big thanks to Joe at pinball star and spooky for doing that. Hope everyone has a happy safe Thanksgiving.

Quoted from Chosen_S:

I’m looking into placing my tna order... I’m shipping to (middle of nowhere) Midland Texas 79701, I’ve shipped 5 games to this area and they’ve all cost around $460.00 through Beltman / Michelle Bianchi (which usually comes by way of RL) .... anyone have any better ideas?

Spooky well def do cheapest than that just ask them.
