This project originally started out as a sign replacement, similar to what we did for the original Tokyo Neon sign. I had a couple of ideas for this, but quickly ran into problems with the amount of space I had to work with, particularly on the premium. There just wasn’t the depth to create a nice, diffused resin sign.

I got chatting about the problem with @joelbob, and we hashed out some alternative ideas. Could I make something else that communicated the same information, but in a different way? Again there were issues - the idea I had was quite complex, using techniques I hadn’t used before, and I wasn’t entirely convinced I could pull it off. It also needed space, on a game that surprisingly doesn’t have a lot of it available. But the idea was a banger, so I wanted to give it a shot.

So what is it? It’s a buoy of course! Inspired by the one Chrissie holds onto at the start of the movie before she’s munched by our sharp toothed protagonist.

  • Motorised “bobbing” buoy, by default on all the time, but can also by triggered by events. Hand painted tough nylon, with a rusty metal effect.
  • Wrap around matrix LED screen (Like Elton, only less camp!) with 198 LEDs. Text ticker showing game events pulled from the sign. Ability to show Animated GIFs, like the blood effect when the chum line is hit. We will likely include the ability to change this text and the GIFs.
  • Buoy Siren. Triggerable by events, and fully configurable (pattern and colours)
  • Water effect resin with over 100 LEDs. Triggerable by events, and fully configurable (pattern and colours). More or less ‘blood’ if you find it too much.
  • 100% configurable through the Lolly Web UI
  • Fully tested with an awesome-o-meter and scored a very respectable score of ‘highly dope’.
