If you’ve already mastered Devil’s Crush and the more recent Demon’s Tilt, and are looking for your next challenge with a horror-based pinball video game, Zen Studios are ready to capitalize on that with their newly-announced title, Pinball M. Revealed at the recent MIX Next Online Showcase, the game is currently in development for the PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store.
Pinball M will launch with five tables inspired by several IPs, including a Child’s Play-inspired Chucky’s Killer Pinball, Dead by Daylight Pinball in collaboration with Behaviour Interactive, and Zen’s own Lovecraft-inspired Wrath of the Elder Gods Director’s Cut. The other two tables will be announced at a later date. The game will be a free platform download, with tables available as in-game purchases.
Each table is “fully loaded with gameplay designed to keep players on the edge of their seats”, featuring assets inspired by their source material to complete the experience.
As a unique addition, Pinball M will have a Play Corner feature in the table menu that’s designed to immerse players in a 3D environment that’s themed to match each table’s design, with several customization options. Players will even be able to craft their own personal corner of horrors in the game with decorative elements which can be earned through gameplay.
“We are thrilled to bring this new pinball platform to our players with a killer lineup of new licensed tables,” said Mel Kirk, COO of Zen Studios. “Over the years, there have been many mature themes that we’ve wanted to explore on our pinball tables. Pinball M allows Zen to fully embrace M-rated source material and create authentic pinball experiences based on our favorite horror and irreverent themes.”
