Peter & Sons Signs Up to Yggdrasil Game Engagement Mechanics
Peter & Sons has become the latest games studio to make use of Yggdrasil Gaming’s Gigablox™ mechanic through the popular YG Masters program.
The studio will be able to implement the mechanic into its games development process by using Yggdrasil’s Game Engagement Mechanics (GEM) offerings, and the first game is expected by the end of this year.
Gigablox™ has been used in a number of Yggdrasil’s own games, including Lucky Neko and Hades. It gives dynamic reels the ability to generate gigantic blocks up to 6x6 stacked. In addition to producing large payouts, it also enables Gigablox™ battles.
Four of the participants on the YG Masters program have chosen to make use of the GEM offering since its introduction, including DreamTech Gaming, Reflex Gaming, and Bang Bang Games. It provides participants with three of Yggdrasil’s popular mechanics, Gigablox™, MultiMAX™, and Splitz™, all of which are designed to increase player engagement and retention. Further game mechanics are expected to become available through the program later this year.
