Brian Eddy

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Brian R. Eddy is an American game designer and programmer, best known for designing Attack From Mars pinball for Midway and programming FunHouse and, with Larry DeMar, The Machine: Bride of Pin*Bot. While at Williams Electronics / Midway Games, he also designed Medieval Madness,[1] and programmed Indiana Jones: The Pinball Adventure.[2]

After the closure of Midway's pinball division in 1999, Eddy moved to Midway's video game division, where he worked on Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy, and several games in the Mortal Kombat franchise.[3] Currently, Eddy is the President and Chief Creative Officer of Spooky Cool Labs,[4] a game design firm founded by former Williams programmer Larry DeMar.

When pinball designer Steve Ritchie was asked about the design similarities between his Spider-Man pinball machine and Eddy's Attack From Mars, Ritchie admitted that he had designed Spider-Man's playfield as an homage to Eddy, and specifically to Attack From Mars.[5]
