I'm being super nice to my wife (always a smart move) and going to explain a bit how tomorrow works.
At 8 a.m. central time, emails will go out to existing Spooky customers... $1,000 initial payment holds your spot, NOTHING MORE IS DUE UNTIL YOUR GAME IS DONE!!! Spots are given in the order sales are confirmed. If you want to order but be later in line for whatever reason, no problem... just let us know.
If you aren't sure you want it... WAIT! It will be at shows, it will be at friends homes. Play it, then decide. There will be even more live stream / Jack Danger goodness coming soon. The game is not limited. We'll sell it until demand dwindles then do a "last call". Could be a few months, could be a year. We really have no idea where this game will take us.
Kayte and Squirrel will be on call at 8 a.m. both in email and on the phone... you will get your game number as we confirm your sale (IN ORDER). Please don't ask for specific numbers because it's going to be chaos as it is.
WE LOVE CHECKS!!! Yep, we save money when you use them, and we will hold your spot in line for a couple weeks if you want to do us that favor (many people do this, and THANK YOU!!!). Of course we can do cards as well (including American Express now). PayPal went out the window with Preda... um, reasons beyond our control.
Need to make payments? HECK YEAH! We are flexible and do this ALL THE TIME! Just let Kayte know what you want to do and we'll build / set your game aside until you're ready for it.
New people that have signed up at shows or by email for TnA will be notified either late in the day Monday, or early Tuesday morning depending on how Monday goes. Wednesday, sales are WIDE OPEN TO EVERYBODY!
We do have some early test games already spoken for, so don't get mad if you get in at 8:01 a.m. and find out you are game #8 or something similar. We need early games in friendly hands to help set up for mass production, and basically all pinball companies do this so please don't yell at the gal on the phone.
You will see in the email a complete list of options... just look it over, figure out what suits you, and call / email Kayte to lock your spot in.
I can't begin to describe the pain caused when another company announces a new shiny toy and suddenly a small flood of people back out AFTER you already built or are in the process of building their game. It can destroy a company our size real fast. Every game made is a custom product built to your specifications... PLEASE TREAT IT AS SUCH! If you back out, you will be responsible to find a new buyer. We will help you all we can. We aren't cold heartless monsters, we are a small family owned business. We like it that way, and we hope you do as well. BUY WITH CONFIDENCE! We have delivered EVERY game we promised, and that's not about to change. There is no magic bucket of money here, YOU ARE THIS COMPANY'S ONLY INVESTORS! When you buy a game, we make it, and the profit is used to make everything we do better. When you see the progress in this game across the entire build, I think you'll see what we mean.
Did I mention don't yell at the gal on the phone?
I guarantee this is not the perfect way to do all this, but it's the best we have to offer right now so please understand we are doing the best we can (and try not to yell at the poor gal on the phone).
We can produce about 10 to 12 games a week, so I hope that helps you figure out time frames for delivery. GAMES WILL SHIP IN 2017!!! REALLY... we promise. Estimated production for the next year is 500 to 600 units.
Everyone at Spooky Pinball LLC can't thank you enough for the excitement on this project. I think Scott thought I was joking at Expo a year ago when I brought up making this game (again). This is completely different than anything out there... it's pinball in the purest, wildest, most exciting form in years. We are blown away by the response, and we really hope we've earned your faith and trust.
If you want something truly different, if nice matters, and if what Spooky is and stands for makes you happy... then I hope you support Total Nuclear Annihilation!!!
Thank you, and Charlie approves this message.
