Hello from big matt, how'd you like the homebrews?
« on: November 23, 2022, 08:16:40 PM »
FReEplaY was a blast this year for me. Thanks to all who enjoyed my homebrews, it was fun bringing them. No issues with the games other than stuck balls that will be addressed. DBZ looked like it was the favorite and is mine too, that's the one I will focus on the art first this year. YES THERE IS A PLAN.

E.T..... it has so much going on it's like the twilight zone of EM's(YEP just said that) I threw everything I could at it except for 3 more players :) this one and it's playcount compared to DBZ will inspire me to really set up Pokemon as an inbetweener of complication.


i was under the impression I'd have some sort of booth area, which I didnt so it stifled my shirt sales. I've taken a bath on the shirts thus far and am reducing them to 20 bucks shipped if you want one. I'm donating all money to the golisano's children's wing for personal reasons is near and dear to my heart. If you saw it hanging there I want to remind you they are silk screened and won't fade in washes.

So if you'd like a shirt please shoot me a text at 2398237933

Feel free to leave criticism of the layouts/rules, and games in general if it's something addressable (other than stuck ballz) I can work on it.

Thanks dudes. -big matt.

I just think it is super impressive that you made not just one, but TWO.  That is some serious talent.  Thank you for sharing these with people.

The games were amazing. You have a ton of potential and talent to make pinball games and the games played very well and were very fun. I have wanted to convert my devil's dare or party animal into a different themed game. I have no idea where to start with any of the custom home brew modifications to an existing game. Your designs seemed to be from scratch, rather than re-themes,  I'd be really interested to learn more If you are so willing to share more information or point me in the right direction to get more information. I think the biggest Challenge that I can foresee is the reprogramming. Very cool stuff and very impressive work. 👏
Thanks in advance
