I thought I read that Monster Bash required licensing from each monster.  Maybe it was written in sarcasm and I was dreary eyed. Not sure, but that might be a MB deal delayer, maybe not.  Maybe Rick can clear up any licensing that is required for a MB type theme(Warner Brothers?), and the time to process the paperwork/negotiations and have to deal with that part of pinball biz. You give up your hobby when you make it your biz?

As far as the price goes, keep it as low as you can, but still make enough profit to keep rolling out the remakes, cover your family health care, bills, etc, family vacation, new used car, AC fix, kids braces, etc....  Best of Luck!!

It will be at the venue that is chosen based on game being at a point where PPS feel comfortable announcing it.


That venue will depend on when we agree that the game is at that point.

I have spoken to Rick recently, and can say that I find him to be honest and straightforward to a fault.I tried to get better hints at Game #2, but he stayed the course with information that only made the anticipation of the delayed announcement even more inceased.
The MMr in my opinion has exceeded expectations.What's a little more time  going to change anyway? ::)

I hope game #2 is AFM.  With MMr and AFMr you would have 2 of the top 3 rated games according to many.  Looking forward to seeing what the plans are.

My guess is Monster Bash being most likely for #2. Why? Because you can buy AFM in decent condition for 6.5 - 7k today. This is less than what a remake will go for, so demand will not be so hot.


MB on the other hand is selling for a few thousand over what MBR would go for, so demand will be there.


CC is probably not going to be a big seller if they ever go down that road unless they finish the game code. As it stands today its only expensive as its very rare, and the last "standard" game Williams made.

Only thing missing on CC is one thing on the rule card that was decided to be left out. Rest is done. Pinball News has the recording of the fireside chat with the designers where this is explained.

AFMR will sell. Mint or restored AFM's go for more than 7K. And decent ones are still 21 years old.

ToTAN would be a great choice as Table #3.  Since The Pinball Arcade uses it as their free game a lot of people are already familiar with it.  It also looks and sounds beautiful and is a ton of fun!

Regardless of when CC is, the code would be 'completed' (we have a runtime compile environment of the CC code - i.e. we have the complete source code). Additionally, there is some features that were left off the game (like the saloon doors - we have the tooling for those as well).


Not saying where CC is in the queue of games, but just fyi regarding CC.

Thanks Rick. CC would be on my list to purchase, and maybe MB. CC bugs me today when I put my name on the high score table, and no music plays in the background. Feels wrong.

I can't help but notice that a 3D translite for MM first appeared.....Then AFM and WW........Doesn't that make it pretty obvious the next 2 remakes are AFM and WW? Not sure which order, though I suspect AFM then WW.......Thoughts?
