Inspired by the electromechanical era


Blood Bank Billiards uses the LCD display in the backbox of the P3 to create the feeling of an electromechanical (EM) pinball machine. The scoring is displayed using reels. The players, ball counts, tilt, extra balls and over the top indicators are all represented as they would be on a silk-screened backglass. Although the game does use a single set of score reels, it supports up to 4 players. The game even simulates tracking the high score using a grease pencil.


We continue the EM inspiration down into the playfield with a design that mostly replicates a printed playfield with static inserts. This is blended with dynamic icons for the Blood Bank. In the center, there is a cutout that gives a view into the 3D scene and where we also display animations. The light shows also try to stay true to the EM era, but we do use some RGB effects to help communicate things to the player.

The sound design of the game reinforces the EM theme with mechanical reel sounds, EM chimes on scoring, and an over the top buzzer. This is further realized with integration of the Drained module physical bell and knocker.

Additionally, there is a subtle lighting effect when you flip that dims the lights like in an EM where the power draw of the flipper coils will dim the GI lighting.
