Microgaming has announced a content partnership with game developer Neon Valley Studios.
The popular game provider, which is known for games such as Thunderstruck II and Immortal Romance, announced the news this week, revealing that the independent studio is the latest to join Microgaming’s network.
Under the partnership, Neon Valley Studios will develop content for Microgaming, allowing the firm to launch its games at Microgaming casino operators while appealing to a wide community of players.
In Microgaming’s official press release, the firm says the independent studio reimagines the “buzz and glamour” of Las Vegas in its games and develops “entertaining, story-driven casino slots” that give players a modern Vegas experience.
The studio is set to release its first slot on September 10. Titled Aurora Wilds, the game will be released exclusively to Microgaming operators and, according to the firm, is packed with features including expanding Wilds, respins and a jackpot wheel to reward players.
John Coleman, the CEO at Microgaming, said in a statement: “Our studios strategy is designed to bring greater choice, innovation and quality to the market.
“Neon Valley have years of collective gaming industry knowledge and expertise, not to mention, not to mention their own distinctive style and personality, and we are delighted to add them to our global roster of independent game studios.”
Brian Perego, the Senior Creative Technical Designer at Neon Valley Studios, added: “At Neon Valley Studios, we are dedicated to producing polished games of the highest quality, injecting our knowledge of slot design through the synergistic integration of game mechanics, visuals and the latest technology.
“Our relentless drive to create engaging gaming experiences for players is founded on our passion for games and the latest technological developments. We are delighted to bring ‘the spirit of Vegas’ to Microgaming on an exclusive basis, with Aurora Wilds marking the first wave of exciting content to come from Neon Valley Studios.”
Neon Valley Studios is the latest provider to join Microgaming’s growing network of developers. Last month, the acclaimed developer announced that it had made a similar deal with independent studio Gameburger Studios who later went on to release its Break Da Bank Again Respin slot through Microgaming.
Other studios Microgaming has enlisted include All41 Studios which has released slots Le Kaffee Bar and Magic Of Sahara, Fortune Factory Studios which has released slots Village People Macho Moves and Romanov Riches, Slingshot Studios which has released slots Zombie Hoard and Cash Of Kingdoms.
The firm has also partnered with independent providers such as Stormcraft Studios, Quickfire, Triple Edge Studios and JustForTheWin, all of which have developed and continue to create slots for Microgaming.
