Peter & Sons, a slot developer and Yggdrasil Masters collaborator, has become the newest studio to agree to use Yggdrasil’s Gigablox mechanic to boost future game development.
Peter & Sons would integrate Gigablox into the game creation phase using Yggdrasil’s game experience mechanics, with the first title scheduled to be released before the end of the year.
Yann Bautista, business development manager at Peter & Sons said: “We are very happy to license Yggdrasil’s popular Gigablox mechanical framework to build new and exciting games to add to our growing portfolio.
“We are always looking for new ways to engage and surprise players and building on Yggdrasil’s proven slot mechanics sets a solid foundation for us to create thrilling new content. Access to Yggdrasil’s GEM offering adds significant business value for us as a YG Masters partner.”
Gigablox, which has appeared in a number of Yggdrasil titles, including Lucky Neko and Hades, allows complex reels to spawn massive blocks that can be up to 66 stacked.
Gigablox, MultiMAX, and Splitz, three of Yggdrasil’s mechanics, are available to partners as part of the GEM offering, with the aim of increasing player interaction and retention.
Yggdrasil’s head of partner programs, Stuart McCarthy, said: “We are thrilled with the interest in our GEM offering and it is a testament to the popularity of our mechanics with players around the globe.
“By incorporating Gigablox into their upcoming titles, Peter & Sons will be able to take their games to the next level and we look forward to seeing the results.”

Peter & Sons became a Yggdrasil YG Masters affiliate in October 2020, with the aim of accelerating growth through access to the GATI technology.
