  • Are you ever going to revisit a table like Epic Quest?

    I really like the aspect of the Role play design and the charm of Epic Quest. It's a table I frequently go back to when I have a chance. Was wondering maybe you can make a sequel of sorts.

    Just wondering.

    Anything is possible! What kinds of shenanigans would you want Max to get into if we did a sequel? Any specific table features you'd like to see?

      Well Hmmm..... Uhh. Wow...... I'm no game designer, but I like the idea of a sequel especially for Epic Quest. Perhaps Weapons that change the ball to it's elemental properties when you equip them. I know that some monsters eventually get immune to certain elemental aspects, but it would be interesting to see the ball have the 'effect of it'. Instead of just hitting 'Sword/Smash to hit enemies, have targets that pop up with avatars or pics of the creatures we're fighting in random areas a la Wild West Rampage, Fear itself, Masters of the force. Especially Masters of the force where the targets roam around randomly.

      Come to think of it, the charm of Epic Quest was that is was accessible to all. I'm one for challenging table much like the above tables. Maybe hitting targets in obscure places might not be the best option but it will certainly satisfy my appetite.

      You could maybe do something like the Pin Bot tables of real life, have somewhat the same layout but change few aspects of the table like Ramps with other sink holes and targets?

      I don't know..... Keep the overall charm of the table but make 'Different'.

      Perhaps venture into a different franchise? Something where you level up while playing the table? That was one of the most interesting things about Epic Quest.

        Like an existing RPG franchise or stick with original stuff? I could see this working really well with something like Mario RPG (the music is soooo good!) or even Elder Scrolls. I love RPGs so I would loooove to see another table like Epic Quest

          I loved the idea of Epic Quest, but the playfield doesn't really have anything "Epic" on it at all. A puppet show and a weird barn that takes up a huge amount of space. No castles. No dungeon, no creepy forest... Sorcerers Lair is several times more Epic.

          For a sequel I say scrap that character and start fresh. Better more capable character and an actual epic environment etc...
          Or just make a Dragons Lair table with the most iconic environments and video modes that actually are some of the rooms except to go left/right/up/sword etc.... you hit ramps, scoops, saucers, spinners... Now that would be freaking awesome.

          Then follow it up with Space Ace and Road Avenger. AAAAAAwwwww YEAAAH!

            maybe a pinball which is distributed across multiple other tables the player can playthrough. something like devils crash pinball or the rollers of the realm where the playfield is much deeper with severel other connected tables.
