A new independent game developer enters the market, Slingshot Studios (SS) but with an exclusive deal already in hand. It will create unique slot content for Microgaming. The game studio’s first addition to the tech giant’s portfolio will be Cash of Kingdoms. The new game provider wants to focus on two elements. Enhancing what’s already popular with the players, on one hand. And On the other, they want to add some innovation to the mix.
The new content developer will launch its first title on October 10th. The release promises an action-packed adventure in a medieval setting. And the slot will compete for the players’ attention with some fancy new bonus features as well, such as invading Wilds. In essence, the feature can show up during the base game and the Free Spins bonus!
Microgaming gave a sneak peek at what’s to come to the London’s ICE Totally Gaming visitors. In fact, the company packed its stand with fantasy-styled accessories and middle-age relics. The event from earlier this year also featured a stunt from a professional foot archer. The performer took centre stage clad in a Cash of Kingdoms inspired costume. And indeed, her special routine left the spectators with eyes wide open.
The drive to create
The content provider is confident in the new partnership. In fact, its wide digital offering should only benefit from the personality and expertise of SS.
“They are developing original games with exciting engines and features. All of them target specific markets and audiences,” said Microgaming CEO John Coleman. He also praised the studio’s drive to create and challenge the players. “The content they have coming is fantastic,” he added.
SS’s creative director Richard Vermaak commented the news on the same note. “At Slingshot, our energy and imagination push us forward. We love building games that people love to play. And we can’t wait to share them with Microgaming,” noted Vermaak. And, according to him, the Cash of Kingdoms is nothing but the first taste of what’s to come.
