YG Masters partner Reflex Gaming has signed an agreement to incorporate Yggdrasil’s popular proprietary mechanic Gigablox within its future games development.
Yggdrasil’s proven Gigablox mechanic has featured in several successful games, including Lucky Neko and Hades, and Reflex Gaming will now be able to utilise the popular feature within its titles. The Gigablox framework enables dynamic reels to spawn gigantic blocks up to 6×6 stacked. Besides leading to potentially massive wins, the mechanic also enables GigaBlox battles, a truly innovative gaming experience.
Yggdrasil’s framework offering is part of its innovative YG Masters programme, enabling studios to create and distribute gaming content using its revolutionary GATI technology. GATI is a preconfigured, regulation-ready development toolkit. It allows studios and game developers to apply standardised technology to develop and distribute games around the world.
Three of Yggdrasil’s mechanics, Gigablox, MultiMAX and Splitz are available to partners to use within their content creation to help drive player engagement, player acquisition, and retention levels.
Reflex Gaming joined YG Masters in June last year, with the studio’s first game, Moley Moolah, released through the programme in November 2020.
Commenting on the announcement, Stuart McCarthy, head of partner programmes at Yggdrasil, said: “By offering our proven mechanics to our YG Masters partners they can launch new games knowing they will appeal to global players. YG Masters help our partners rapidly develop content for distribution to our vast operator network, while within our framework offering, studios can elevate their portfolios even further.
“Our partnership with Reflex Gaming is going from strength to strength, and we are excited to see the upcoming titles they will deliver with the Gigablox mechanic to further fuel their success.”
Mat Ingram, CPO at Reflex Gaming, added: “Through the YG Masters programme we have been able to streamline the development process, allowing us to focus on the game design and enabling us to launch exciting titles to a new audience.
“We have a full game launch schedule for 2021, with some epic releases coming. We are really impressed with what Yggdrasil have done on their games using these mechanics. Our game design team already have ideas on how to deploy these clever slot mechanics on our own upcoming games.”
