a little update from Ben

"Ghost Squad as seen at MGC could only start 3 modes (a miracle we even got the programming that far) So there were a lot of shots that "did nothing" that will indeed advance modes in the final game.

I am going to trim down the dialog yes. It's really tricky to convey information quickly!

I'll post backglass and cabinet art once I get around to making them."

anyone interested in a Ghost Squad can email Charlie

charlie@spookypinball.com

to be put on the list (no deposits required)

He is expecting to have finished ones ready and going out the door before expo which is in October.

You can also email Chralie about getting on the list with Charlie's Pinball Zombies by simply emailing Charlie as well.



In Spooky Pinballs recent podcast he talked about Steve Ritchie visitng their booth at the recent pinball show and he said that he has played alot of custom one off homebrew type machines, and GS definitely did not suck and thought it played quite well

here is a video with Ben talking about building a pinball (very light over view but does focus on his board set design). The board is for his Ghost Squad so it is featured.



Homepin might find it interesting, probably nothing new but down his line of work

Very interesting project and enjoy the way he sort of dumbs it down for me to try and understand what he is doing.
His enthusiasm and passion is highly contagious too! He might do a NEW surfing themed pin Swinksy?  ^^^

I brought up the subject with him of 5th Element and it was one of his top 5ers to do, but no surfing - can't remember the other 4. Maybe we have to work on a surfing theme and then contract spooky pinball to build. As they say made by surfers for surfers.

Due to some legal issues Ben couldn't use the name "Ghost Squad" and now will be released as "America's Most Haunted".

So if you see the name pop up in the pinball circuit this was going to to be Ghost Squad.
