Here's some very quick and rough character ideas for if we do go down that route.
I was thinking there could be a different themed character for different themed tables. and took idea that the character hold the paddles from someone on here (I think)

Again very rough stuff, I wasnt sure if characters are going to be a thing

Nice concepts. I'm liking the idea of a character more and more. One thing is that they will be seen from a top down perspective. I think the second concept with the paddle looks really cool and i like the simplicity of the little one wheeled robot.

yh thats one of the reasons I had reservations about having characters. With it being top down and the characters being very small on screen, there'll be a lot of detail that will not be seen

Some things to keep in mind: top-down characters can be made readable, big heads are awesome, the camera isn't orthographic and does have perspective :D

We could also tilt the characters so they're not exactly following the "rules" of the perspective. Just a thought.

Here's a new test table idea i'm modelling now.

Going to include targets, a spinner,  directional boost pads, a bridge and on the bottom half there are raised ramps with a lane switch to direct the ball

Really like the lane switchers and the boost pads. Reckon they would be easy to implement too.

Ah yeah, that's a great design. Much clearer to see from above. The different colours are great too

Branding seems to be my big thing and while the placeholder font is workable and my first try at a font is... something interesting but not really workable I decided to play around a little more.  

I have all the original stuff for this so I can play around more, but I wanted some thoughts on this before even githubbing or continuing down this path.

@Reid_Harris_Cooper Hey.  If you want to make as many logos as you can, the logo on the main menu screen is randomly chosen when the scene loads, and the logo is also a button you can use to flip through all the logos.

Edit: That goes for anybody/everybody

This may be my favorite thing so far.

I noticed my first ugly logo pop on one of the tests and it wasn't that ugly...

so I'm probably going to try playing around a bit more when time allows.  

Thanks!

They're randomly picked now! That one will come up as the first one sometimes

I've put a focus on getting each player more game time interacting with the ball.  This table puts all players on one side and uses squash rules to alternate attackers and defenders.  Bumpers and boost panels hopefully quick/sharp attacks by the ball (tunnel has a randomized exit O.o).

A quick mock-up of a hedge garden themed table concept I've been toying with (trees would act as pop-bumpers, and the low triangular garden beds near each corner would act as slingshot bumpers).

Hadn't really thought much about it, but something like a person in ruffles with a croquet mallet would feel appropriate ^_^

I would love to see this become a thing. I think custom music and SFX would work really well with this.

I love seeing these new designs and concepts. They all look very interesting and look forward to testing them out.

and themed pop bumpers and elements sounds great!

Wow, that looks awesome. I'm always a big fan of cartoony style things and love the look going on here.

The design looks really good with the hump. Where does the hole lead to?

Oh well I was thinking they could pop out somewhere randomly.
