Brian R. Eddy is an American computer programmer and designer. He worked at Midway Games, and his completed designs include several of the most popular and influential pinball machines of the 1990s, including Attack From Mars, Medieval Madness.[1] FunHouse, The Machine: Bride of Pin*Bot, and 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.

Eddy's machine designs consistently rank in the top 10 of both popularity[5] and in the highest price paid for a pinball machine.[6]

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.[7]
