Thread: LOTR theme

  1. #1

    Default LOTR theme

    Good morning Zen Studios and community,

    new to the forum, and in deed, your product in general. First, congrats to Mel, if this was your idea with the free sorcerer
    table. Excellent marketing! A highly addictive table and it gives a good idea about the "real world physics" applied, besides, being a stunning table in deed.

    So, it worked, and I bought Portal and the Alien Pack, honestly with relative modest expectations. Well, I was in for a surprise!

    How to say that.... hmmm.... perhaps like this, all the tables have "character". Each is individual, one is fast as Hell, the other tricky and so on.

    That is a fantastic achievment, seriously.

    Two things on my mind, one is whether you ever considered to make 3 Lord of the Rings tables? I imagine there are royalties to be paid with all the marvel, starwars, and classic themes as well.

    The other thing is about multiplatform use. I have to pay each time if I want to play this on different platforms, would that be right, or did I miss something?

    All the best
    Georg

    Hey there,
    thank you for the compliment! We deeply appreciate it!

    About the LOTR tables, I'll forward your idea to Mel himself, so he can try to move a few strings if it's possible to create it.

    Sadly right now we cannot provide the cross-platform purchase but we do hope that it can be possible in the future!

    Have a nice week!

    I would love to redownload some of the tables that I really love on my switch, but, then I have to compete against myself with a different username and that just sucks. If we, and by that I mean all of the gaming community are going to allow for cross play they need to accept that many of us have multiple systems and embrace that and figure out a way to unify it so that we are not needed to repurchase games we have already purchased and have multiple different user accounts, otherwise it just looks like a way for developers to make more money and frankly few are going to repurchase all of the tables on the switch when I can play pinball fx3 on my ps4 on my 50 inch flatscreen at 60 fps on tables I have already purchased vs my switch in portable mode which is maybe less than 30 fps. I love crossplay in so much is I know my score is the best of both microsoft windows 10 and xbox whatever it is called and ps4 and now switch and steam, but you cant talk to any of those people or friend them. A lot must be worked on in order for this system to be ideal.

    Hey,
    we'd also love this to be available but right now due to the strict Store policies, it's not quite possible.
    We'll try to work on a unified leaderboard but it's sadly not that easy as it sounds.
    Anyway, as I can see you already beat everyone again Congratulations!

    I've hardly beaten everyone hajdu. I simply meant that since the scoreboard is made up of all those different systems in the rare occasions that you do post a number one score you know you are playing a shit ton of people and not just those on your specific system. Which reminds me, I'm still very interested in seeing a leaderboard where it tells you how many entries are on it. I don't just want to know that I am number one on a table or number 50 for that matter, I want to know that I am number one or number 50 out of 400 or 5600 or 35000. Being number one out of 400 is nice, but being number one out of 35000 far more impressive. Also the date when the score was posted would be easy enough to add, because to me to see the top 5 going back and forth tells me there is room for improvement vs seeing a score that has stood solid and unbeaten for a year. As always just suggestions.

    Greetings hajdu,

    Isengart, Treebeard, Saruman, Balrog, Gandalf, Orks, Sauron, Gimli, Elrond, Legolas, of course the hobbits, and then there is the three part Hobbit, so many really. Way I see it, you easily have the same depth of table variations available as you had with star wars. There is enormous potential if Mel can pull this off.

    I have a gadzillion ideas about the tables . You might also consider new territory, going crazy so to speak.

    Imagine you have a certain amounts of challenges on your 1st LOTR table, or special challenges perhaps, once you succeeded, ....swoooosh.... you enter the 2nd LOTR table and your score continues. You can go from the misty Mountains and the mines of Moria to Rivendell for example. You also could have the status screen to be high quality instead of traditional pixels and make use of that. ...Endless possibilities...

    Best

    Hey,
    trust me I'm as big fan of this idea as it's possible but right now with the Amazon deal, the LOTR rights are not an easy territory to hike at. I'm pretty sure the license team is doing it's best to achieve this big success!
    Regards,
