Backbox Podcast: Interview with Morgan and Kayte Emery

Our friends at the Backbox Pinball Podcast were joined last week by Morgan and Kayte Emery from Spooky Pinball! Here are just a couple highlights:

On the topper:

Morgan: Completely mom’s idea.  Completely.  She designed it, she talked dad into, and here it is.

Kayte: The whole thing was everybody on Pinside was saying “they need a portal”…and I said “can’t we do something like this” and showed them the one we had made for the contract game for the Jetsons.  I said “that moved back and forth, can’t you make a portal spin?”

On future titles:

Kayte: We have some really interesting licenses coming up and some unique things that will be going along with those licenses.

Pinball History YouTube Channel

If you’re into historical pinball information, you should check out this YouTube channel!! It has pinball presentations and announcements from years ago. For example, last week they posted a video with the following description:

“At the spring ASI show in 1999 (March 24, 1999 according to the date on the tape) Midway presented their “Symposium 1999″ for show attendees. This tape covers the demonstration of the then-new Pinball 2000 technology, using a Bally Revenge From Mars game. George Gomez and Larry DeMar go through all the cool features, then take questions from the audience.”
