Dean Delray: Tim Sexton Interview
Last week Stern Pinball’s Tim Sexton joined Dean Delray’s The Grail! Here is just one interesting tidbit:
On the first attempt of Brendon Small doing callouts/script/characters for Led Zeppelin:
Tim Sexton: We sent it over to the band with, here is a script, here is a demo. And on the first pass we got a pretty bad tongue lashing from Robert Plant that just said we missed the mark on the aesthetic of the game. This is not it. And we hit the drawing board again. [Brendon Small] was like “how do we make it Led Zeppelin but funny”. And he took some of the lyrics and took some inspiration from that. And they were like “Led Zeppelin is not like this at all”. And they’re right.
