^^^^ Exactly! Otherwise it will be the same old thing mashed about, Spooky are trying something different with a collaboration on the design. Looks promising🤞

No surprise I also hear Lyman may be on the move
Most of the last few Steve Richie games have been flops I love Williams Steve Richie games and to be honest I think it is time to call time out and bow out a legend rather than carry on
It’s time to let the new blood in pinball lead the way

Chris and his inside info LOL

Lyman left a long time ago heard that rumour at the end of last year.

The only good news from this is he has been working on Cactus Canyon for CGC!

Hmm - watch more ultraman gameplay… slightly nervous about this game now.

Damn, then there won’t be anymore BM66 code updates, unless he does freelance.

You can never tell until it’s in your own room and you are playing it, I like an atmosphere like Russ Abbot and Halloween looks like it has it with the music and sounds. As long as it’s not crap but time will tell. They said it was their best game to date, we shall see. But I know what you are saying, I’m with you on that😬

Huh, saw this post on Reddit last week but didn’t know if it was legit:

Interesting move from JJP considering his last few games haven’t been particularly well received, but be interesting to see what he can puts out with a higher BOM to work with. Guess we’ll find out in a few years?

Off but related topic... Is Pat Lawlor still about? I know he worked on WoZ but haven't heard of anything since?

Yes I've heard bad things. It's just such a great theme. I wouldn't buy one without playing first. Incidentally, where are you guys seeing Ultraman/Halloween gameplay?

I can understand this from both sides.

JJP have the young designer who's name I forget but did POTC & G&R. Someone aside from Lawlor who will give them a couple of flow games and a senior lead might not be a bad idea.

Stern don't need him anymore. If Elwin is the platinum designer and Brian Eddy is going to produce more (do they still have Gomez & Borg?) then poor old Richie is a bit surplus to requirements.

I think he ads value to JJP but doesn't add anything to Stern. I do wonder if JJP will up their output now?
