I'm really concerned by the Skit-B polemic. Even though they failed at some point, I do believe that there is room for such a great effort of pinball design. Licensed pinball sure is a great way to improve your chance for financial success but it's been proven that's it's not always mandatory.
I wish that current pinball design would not always focus on adding new bash toys, modes over modes over multiball, but rather on the storyline. Pinball design is a great opportunity to tell a story and to engulf the player in a whole new world.
So let's fool around and see what can come out of what we got with the Predator theme. We have hunters being hunted by an alien. Depending on your angle, this could almost sound like a cheesy sci fi z-movie from the 50's. Why not try this angle by adding a lot of humor. I'm thinking CFTBL style.
"Intergalactic Space Lord Hunter" would definitely sounds like a fun machine.
