After the success of a previous one-off collaboration, Microgaming and PearFiction Studios have decided to “take the relationship to the next stage,” inking an exclusive agreement that will see the games designer supply content to the Isle of Man-based platform.
The partnership begins on February 4, with the release of Chicago Gold, a high-volatility, 40-payline slot developed exclusively for Microgaming by the Montreal-based studio. The 1920s mobster-themed game is packed with extra spins and repsins and will be the Canadian designer’s “first major global game” to be featured on the network of the self-proclaimed developer of the world’s first true online casino software.
“PearFiction Studios are proven innovators who marry great artwork with technical insights, game performance and a huge sense of fun.”
The new video slot comes complete with exciting bonus features like the Big Boss Jackpot Reveal and Cash Collection. Next up for PearFiction is its prehistoric adventure Blazing Mammoth, which will launch on the Microgaming network soon after Chicago Gold.
Chief Executive Officer for PearFiction Studios, Thierry Semoff said the distribution deal was a “transformational” one for his studio, attributing it to the “scope and scale” of the Microgaming platform.
“When an industry pioneer like Microgaming wants you on board, it’s a real recognition that the games you’re creating are good and that all your hard work is paying off, added Semoff.
As mentioned, the two gaming companies worked together previously, creating a punk rock band-themed game, The Smashing Biscuit. The success of the earlier alignment together with Microgaming’s commitment to forming partnerships with the best new talent served as the catalyst for the new exclusive agreement.
