The Surprising Size of the Production Run of Spooky Pinball’s Next Game

This evening Bug from Spooky all did another of the Company's great new regular gameplay streams. Tonight's featured game was Spooky's 2018 game Alice Cooper's Nightmare Castle. I have embedded a link to Spooky's Twitch channel below for those who want to check it out.

As usual, the stream concludes with a fantastic Question and Answer session. We learned a couple of interesting new things during tonight's session. Perhaps the most interesting is the following quote in the comments section by Spooky Luke:

"I think the next game's production run size will surprise some people and I won't say what that means."

Hmmmmm. This could mean one of two things...that Spooky is producing a ton of its next game OR the production run of its next game will be small. If I had to guess, I'm going to say that Spooky is going to do a smaller run of a niche horror title for its next machine. The Scooby-Doo production run was the Company's largest yet. They might welcome a smaller run of something. Plus, a horror movie that is not quite as popular as Halloween might have a smaller potential audience. So that's my guess. What do you think this means?

In addition to that really interesting tidbit, Bug talked a lot about future code updates for Spooky's games and more:

  • Ultraman is about to get a code update to match Halloween. After that they have a wizard mode planned for it.

  • Scooby-Doo has a new code update coming hopefully next week.

  • Spooky has already made its next game. They are working numerous titles ahead now.

  • Spooky is live-streaming Rick and Morty gameplay live with Don's Pinball Podcast at 5:00 PM on Saturday.

  • Spooky has been very focused on adding modes and content into Halloween. Now that they're at the point that there's a lot of content in the game, they want to add more creepy, atmospheric, eerie things in there that will surprise people.

  • Spooky has been having conversations about a potential code update for Alice Cooper's Nightmare Castle. Nothing is certain yet, but Bug is pushing for one.

well, given he was focused on Alice Cooper's NC, I bet you are right, with a small 300 ish run of TCM or something similar. Or, it could be much bigger than Scooby with a title like Princess Bride..could go either way..but leaning on your speculation as well. The surprise is the fun part!
