LoserKid Pinball Podcast: Interview Mark Ritchie and Josh Sharpe on Pulp Fiction Pinball

LoserKid Pinball Podcast interviewed the game designer, Mark Ritchie, and rules designer, Josh Sharpe, of the new release of Pulp Fiction Pinball from Play Mechanix and Chicago Gaming Company. Here is what we learned:

  • Mark talks about starting to work with Chicago Gaming Company
  • It was originally planned as a video game and then shifted to pinball
  • Quintin Tarantino was part of the approval process and slow to react
  • Mark originally designed a widebody, but Tarantino wanted something more like an old Bally game
  • Both Mark and Josh discuss how they play the game and their strategies
  • Mark Ritchie tells about his leave from Williams to go to Capcom
  • Expectations are shipping won’t happen until 3rd Quarter 2023
  • 0% chance there will be a pinball machine from Play Mechanix next year

LoserKid Pinball Podcast: Interview Eric Meunier on The Godfather Pinball

Another great interview by LoserKid Pinball Podcast with Eric Meunier discussing his latest release, The Godfather Pinball. Here is what we learned:

  • An in-depth discussion about The Godfather and how Meunier developed the game and rules.
  • Meunier talks about working with Slash again and Mark Tremonti of Creed and Alter Bridge
  • Meunier tells how they were able to get Al Pacino to be represented as Michael Corleone in the game.  Pacino has never approved his likeness before.  They had to then have Franchi rework the artwork to add Michael Corleone.
