    Ideas

    Beautiful thread and what amazing ideas.

    How about myths and mythical figures? Chimera, medusa, cerberus, gryphon can make a great story for a table.
    Since it is ZEN studios, may I also suggest, a table about feodal Japan, with ninjas, samurajs and shoguns. All perhaps around one of those state of the art zen gardens in Kyoto.

    Keep up the good work back there in Hungry. You are simply masters at what you're doing.

    Cool!Does that mean it is in the realm of the possible that we might see those tables someday?!

    I mean From Dusk till Dawn is exactly what i'm talking about when i say a bit more "edgy" tables.I don't know if the words Titty Twister(a FDTD table without a huge Titty Twister logo would be kinda pointless) alone would defy the rating restrictions of the Zen policy but beyond that i think the table could, if need be, be done relatively ratingsfriendly.

    Some further table ideas:

    The Black Hole (thinking of Disney)
    Labyrinth
    The Dark Crystal
    Die Hard (further sequel coming up next year)
    Prometheus
    From Dusk till Dawn
    King Kong
    The Thing From Another World
    A music themed table using and incorporating original tracks from a small band who would be willing to license them.
    A real time table that incorporates daylight and nighttime changes, possibly also random rain, fog, snow, etc effects.

    That's a bummer and limiting.Shame really, i'd be down for more edgy tables(not exclusively but as an alternative providing some variety), seems like a cool unexplored niche market to me.Perhaps some other company will tackle that someday but in a perfect world Zen should be the ones to do it.

    Bring it!!!

    Possibilities are endless really, so many cool options.Once again i don't mind playing the more kid friendly designed tables but i hope more edgy tables can be released in the future as well.

    A general question: Is there any kind of rating restriction in Zen company policy, is nudity/violence, basically an R-rated table even an option?
    Probably just me but i think for example an Evil Dead(also remake coming up next year) table with some splatter vfx or whatever comes to mind would be pretty cool.

    I even couldn't sleep because of the idea and kept thinking up what it would be like:
    • Paraloop mini-orbit
    • A long dash orbit with rings in leading to Blue Chip bumpers.
    • There'd be rings on various ramps and the dash orbit to pass through, passing through them and hitting blue chip bumpers in quick succession builds up a chain combo.
    • Definitely has to have a spiral ramp around a clock tower model.


    The main objective would be to collect all 6 Ideya by performing missions.
    Completing the mission means you collect the Ideya (shown in the middle of the board)

    Some mission ideas:
    Giratana (timed): Hit a random target that switches every 10 seconds, then collect 50+ blue chips before performing a paraloop.
    Reala Multiball: 4-balls, Hit a random target that switches every 5 seconds with one of the balls, do this 10 times. Mission fails if 2 balls are lost

    The final mission has to be Wizeman obviously. No idea how it would play out though.

    One sub mission could be to rescue Nightopians, hit any of the lit ramps/orbit and then perform a paraloop. The more saved, the higher the bonus. Each ramp can only be used once.
    Actually Pyrii...that's really not a bad idea at all. That idea sounds pretty grand. I like it!

    Exactly. They love our games, we love theirs. It'd be awesome!

    Insomniac recently revealed a few of their cancelled projects. 1080Pinball was one of them.
