I don't have deep pockets or any production knowledge, hell I haven't even gotten to play the game yet (TPF hopefully) But based off what I've seen I would easily be in at the the 7k range and I've not even spent 5k for a pin yet.

Classic style game with a modern twist that kicks your ass and keeps you coming back. Love the multiball, prisoner of war style save your buddies and cause some havoc,great use of the drop targets .Even in a smaller collection this game would hold its own and earn it's footprint.

Maybe some things could be simplified for production just like with anything between prototype and production but there's alot to this game. I don't see it being made cheaply without dumbing it down to something less then Scott's original vision for it

Quoted from Shapeshifter:

Anyone know the rules on this game?
I know you have to destroy 9 reactors but is it the same every time? Seems quite a linear ruleset?
Another game that everybody loves on playing it, it would seem. Hopefully will get to play one soon.

I believe the shot to destroy the reactor once it's critical changes each time and each reactor takes more shots to destroy it

And I'm sure the rules are continuing to be developed

Very excited for this loved playing it at TPF, was hoping this would be the outcome. Will be saving for this one for sure

#539 2 years ago
Quoted from Cheeks:

Wow, this couldn't be truer. So many people think "it's a single-level game so it should be cheap" and others want to cut $100 parts for a $1000 discount. When this comes in at or above current Spooky pricing (just guessing) the bitching will be EPIC.
I loved what I saw and played, so I want it to be what Scott envisions, but I fear the game won't actually sell terribly well at whatever price point that comes in at. I'll buy one and I hope I'm wrong about the masses.

im guessing this is why they are doing the open edition in runs of 50, price will hit higher then alot of people expect so that might deter sales, could only sell the first 50 or need to do a couple runs. left it open to sell alot but not investing in a run of 300+ all at once to go unsold

The art package isn't going to be for everyone but fits the theme and Scott's vision. With the resources available today anyone could buy the game and create their own art for it.. I see people printing play field overlays all the time.

#1940 2 years ago

Has it been mentioned what LEDs are being used on the production and if they are still each direct wired?

Game looks great just waiting for my email from spooky

Any info on the shipping cost from distributors or directly from spooky?

#2268 2 years ago

When can we see some pics of the underside of the playfield?

#2290 2 years ago

Want the knocker for sure, on the fence about the shaker. Wonder how much the kits will be

#2344 2 years ago
Quoted from VolunteerPin:

Also, any thoughts on the side art? I'm leaning towards NOT getting the side art but getting the shaker/knocker/protectors.
Side art might be cool but my thought is that mirror blades on this might be amazing. Any thoughts on this? Anyone seen the side art in person?.

I'm not sold on the side art yet I need to see more pictures first. I do think mirror blades would look good but I don't have any side art on any of my other games so might just leave it. Too busy trying to keep track of the damn ball on this game anyway

#2590 2 years ago

Did not get to watch the whole stream but was there a change in accessing the reactor? on the white wood when the reactor was online only one of the orbits would let you into the core the other would do a full orbit. The orbit would change with sling and pop hits. The production prototype seems like it feeds the reactor from both at all times.

Also I know the game is already brutal as is, but I would like a setting in options to have to knock down the first two drop targets before locking the first ball for multiball.

Game looks fantastic and has that one more game effect, I wonder what number George Gomez got.

during the stream the speaker cutout on the bottom of the cabinet looked bigger then usual, can you give us any info on the cabinet speaker or other components of the sound system? thenotrashcougar

#2743 2 years ago
Quoted from HoakyPoaky:

I was going to request an upgrade to Titan silicone translucent rubbers on my order, but then I looked at the pics & I think they already come installed stock? Can Scott confirm?
I put them in all my pins, as I love the way the LED lighting shines through & illuminates the rubber. Plus I prefer the bounce & the fact they stay pretty clean. TNA screams for clear rubbers with that RGB lighting

Im going to guess they will be the Pinball Life perfect play rubbers

#2745 2 years ago
Quoted from Fortytwo:

Whitch are still silicone. I find on RZ they hold up the same as titan. Flipper rubbers take a beating on that game.

True still silicone. I don't have a ton of experience with either brand, but i felt the perfect play were a bit more bouncy then the titans on my Shadow

Quoted from gtxjoe:

I think the original question on height was asking about the Lockbar height...

By the pictures @notrashcougar posted of it next to a metallica the lockdown is the same height. I think dusting the stream the camera was at a weird angle making it look shorter.

Anyone that was there get any pics of the inside of the cabinet? I'd love to see the production sub box (spooky ghost carved into it I hope) And some better pics of the interior graphics

I should be hearing something soon then!

#5333 1 year ago

The list just seems to be getting longer so the wait isn't getting any shorter for anyone unless they jump in line. Distributors having these in stock is nowhere in sight at this point. As tempting as it would be to sell my spot I've had my months of waiting and I'm ready for some TNA

Game was delivered today, seems to be doing great out of the box and hopefully shouldn't need much adjustment.

Here are a few additional pics of the interior decals for anyone still trying to decide between them and mirrors

There is a post in one of the TNA threads where Scott talks about the display.

He suggested adjusting the contrast and brightness on the back of the screen, and also said he likes to turn gamma on.

I have not done this to my game yet bit plan to if I can stop playing long enough.

Just added to KT's insanity and sent my request for speaker lights
