Since expanding its relationship with Yggdrasil by signing up for the supplier’s ‘Game Engagement Offering,’ (GEM) developer 4ThePlayer hopes to improve its potential game development capability.
The YG Masters partner will be able to integrate the Gigablox, Splitz, and MultiMax into the game creation phase as a result of the transfer, with the aim of increasing user participation and retention.
Gigablox, which has appeared in Lucky Neko and Hades, is all about huge symbols emerging on the reels, which when clustered, lead to massive wins. Splitz, which can be found in Temple Stacks, Neon Rush, and Syncronite, breaks mystery symbols on the reels to give players more opportunities to win, more scatters, longer lines, and larger clusters. MultiMax was first introduced in Multifly!, and it involves multipliers accumulating on the reels to create cascading wins.
Mechanics significantly elevate games
Stuart McCarthy, head of partner programs at Yggdrasil said: “Our mechanics significantly elevate the games incorporating them and add new levels of excitement and engagement that will have players coming back for more.
“We are excited to expand our partnership with 4ThePlayer and to see them release games using Giglablox which will strengthen their existing portfolio.”
4ThePlayer’s founder and business development director, Chris Ash, added: “Innovation and entertainment are key elements for us when we’re creating new games, and you can find both in Yggdrasil’s impressive Gigablox mechanic.
“We already have an exciting concept for a Gigablox game and look forward to releasing it later this year.”
