Hey Everyone,

By now you may have seen the post by Spooky Pinball where we revealed the final artwork for Total Nuclear Annihilation.  I am so happy with how this whole thing turned out and the artist, Matt Andrews, captured what I was going for in this game.  Below, you will find the images that Spooky shared along with some other glamour shots not yet seen!  🙂  Enjoy

Hey Everyone,

Last night was awesome! Total Nuclear Annihilation was featured on the Dead Flip Twitch TV stream and we had a blast!  We even showed a glimpse of the beautiful backglass artwork by Matt Andrews.

Here is a recap video of my best game ever on the machine!

Also, for fun, since you guys could not see the backglass very well, below are a couple pictures of parts of the digital copy.  Enjoy!

The version of the backglass shown last night on the Dead Flip stream was a version without cutouts for score displays.  We made this one first in case we could not use these displays in production, but I fully expect them not to be cut out of the production game.

Hope you guys/gals enjoyed!

Hey followers! So a lot has been going on behind the scenes lately. I have some really cool announcements which I will give more info on later, but here is a high level list of cool happenings with the Total Nuclear Annihilation project.

Name Update

This project is now called Total Nuclear Annihilation in order to distinguish itself from the 1990’s video game.  These are not the same!

Production???

Yes, you heard that right.  Total Nuclear Annihilation will be produced!  Although this was not my original intent, Spooky Pinball has agreed to work with me to get this game into your houses and bars near you.

Spooky Pinball Podcast

I appeared on the Spooky Pinball Podcast this month and we talked about all sorts of pinball stuff.

Listen to it here: http://www.spookypinball.com/podcast-2/

Artist Stuff

You guys already know this, but art is not something I do well, even though my mom is a professional ceramics artist, this did not flow well down the bloodline, and definitely does not mean I know how to do awesome pinball art.  🙂

Matt Andrews will be doing all the art for Total Nuclear Annihilation to bring it to the next level!

More info on Matt Andrews here:  http://www.mandraws.com

Graphics Stuff

I am also proud to say that David Van Es will be doing the LCD animations for Total Nuclear Annihilation as well!

TPF and MGC were awesome

Thank you to Ed and team at TPF and Dan and team at MGC!  I had an amazing time there with the machine and am glad I had the opportunity to show it.

Southern Fried Gameroom Expo

Total Nuclear Annihilation will be at SFGE this year on June 9th – 11th at the Spooky Pinball booth.  I will also be there playing dollar games.

Dead Flip Stream (5/12/17 @5pm CST)

Dead Flip will be guests again at the Sleepy Nut Tavern and streaming the Total Nuclear Annihilation whitewood machine!

There are lots of new features and graphics, so make sure to tune in.  There also may be a hint at what the artwork will look like.  🙂

Stream starts at 5pm CST.  https://www.twitch.tv/dead_flip

Thank you

And, a big thank you to everyone for the great feedback on the game.  I really appreciate it and I love watching you guys and gals enjoy the game.  Thank you once again!

 

That is about it for now, I will update again with more details soon!  Thanks for following!

Hey Everyone,

Just a friendly reminder that Total Nuclear Annihilation will be at the Multimorphic booth this weekend at the Texas Pinball Festival in Frisco, TX!  Come by, say hi, and play the game.  I am good for free high fives if you need one.  See you there!

Hey Everyone!  In case you missed it, the Dead Flip crew stopped out to the Sleepy Nut Tavern on Friday 3/3/17 and played the crap out of Total Nuclear Annihilation.  Below is Part 1 and 2 of that night.  Enjoy!

Hey Everyone,

The time has come.  I invited over a few buddies and we got a gameplay video of my current code set.  The code is still very early and the video camera recorded on a setting from the year 1990 (sorry about that).  🙂

OK, enough of my blabbering on, here is the link to the video.  Enjoy!

Hey Everyone!

I know it has been a long time since my last update during Expo several months ago.  I have been working very hard on the code as we will be bringing Total Nuclear Annihilation to The Texas Pinball Festival this year!

For info on TPF, go here: http://texaspinball.com/tpf/

During all this code writing, I have also been working on more music and sound effects.  For TPF there will be a new song added to the gameplay!

I am also in the process of teaching myself how to make basic animations for the game.  Here is a quick video of my multiball start animation.  This is obviously still a work in progress and may change.

Below are some more screenshots from the game:

Hey Everyone,

Just wanted to let you know that Total Nuclear Annihilation will be set up Friday night, through the rest of the weekend, at the Multimorphic booth at Pinball Expo in Chicago!  Please come by, play the game, and chat.  I will periodically have the game opened up for people to view the inner workings.  Remember, if you are caught wearing a Total Nuclear Annihilation shirt, you get a free high five.  See you guys there!!!

Thank you everyone that ordered a Total Nuclear Annihilation shirt.  I really appreciate it.  I have ended the campaign and we were able to raise $41.39 for the American Cancer Society.  I know it may not seem like much, but every little bit helps.  You should be receiving an email notification with your tracking info from Teespring in it shortly.  Remember, you will get some sweet high fives if you wear your Total Nuclear Annihilation Shirt to Expo!  See you there!
