There are several really good game developers that we admire and keep track of. There is no better way to be in touch with the pulse of the industry than just looking at what our developers are up to. Some of them rely on creating new exciting technologies. Others prefer to release original content for mobile devices mostly. There are also companies that concentrate their efforts on creating great games for everyone who keeps an open eye on trends and wants to play in games that are fresh and unique. Let’s discuss some of the best games that will blow your mind very soon.
Orient Express by Yggdrasil
As the Oscar campaigns for the 2017 ceremony start winding up, many people are looking with awe at the directorial effort of Kenneth Branagh. It is a stylish take on the story that has been one of the Agatha Christie’s classic stories. Yggdrasil company is not famous for purchasing various rights on intellectual property, but they did not want to jump on the hype train and quietly released a game in the same setting called simply “Orient Express”. Great imagery, amazing characters, cool animations, and a really bright color scheme. Visually, this is a stunning game. This developer is known for its amazing design and this game does not disappoint.
King Tusk by Microgaming
If you like Africa and love big elephants, you will definitely fall in love with the latest release of this developer who decided to concentrate its recent efforts on creating two outstanding mobile-friendly games. One of them is this adventure in the African setting with a savannah behind a standard 3×5 playing field featuring all sorts of cool symbols including ancient pottery, pictures of elegant large animals, and other scenery from African cultures. There are various features and cool additions to gameplay, but the game is nothing more than a standard product for mobile phone users.
Lucky Links by Microgaming
Another great slot that has been launched on November 15 in all affiliated online casinos. The main focus of developers in this game is certainly on visuals and sounds. The game looks wonderfully and has a very rhythmic mesmerizing soundtrack. The playing field is not standard and features a 4×5 field. The application will be available to users of both Microgaming Software solutions and the Quickfire users. This game is a definitely something that you need to try out if you enjoy flashy special effects, repetitive yet interesting gameplay, and memorable visuals and sound effects.
Finn and The Swrily Spin by NetEnt
A revolutionary experiment from one of the most prolific and efficient developers in the industry. An online casino that wants to compete in a modern environment needs to offer entertainments that are different and fresh. Those who fail to deliver new exciting ways to gamble will slowly lose the race to readily innovating companies who are all out to compete. NetEnt decided to give their clients an upper hand by introducing a game with a gameplay concept that has never been used in our industry before. The playing field is like a spiral circle with symbols. The slot still features all standard design elements like lines and combos, but it moves symbols in a completely different way. It is a great visual innovation that does not mess with your beloved game mechanics. Only the visual representation is changed in a refreshing way.
Hugo 2 by Play’n Go
Another great example of a good game that is driven by visual design more than by the technology behind it. Some games do not need special introductions and Hugo is definitely one of them. Experienced veterans of the industry are familiar with this cute guy who is trying to run away from his enemies in a cart. The sequel was nothing but a matter of time and now the game is released. People love this magical creature. Developers decided to make this game more mobile friendly and simplify some mechanics in order to make it more appealing to mobile audiences. Visually, this is a stunning product with great character design and flashy special effects. Animations look smooth and sounds make the experience really atmospheric.
Stampede by BetSoft
Something definitely happened a couple of months ago at some meeting of all developers. We heard about at least three new releases that were about Africa and its fauna. Another game about elephants and how they roam Africa is proudly released by BetSoft. This is also a mobile friendly game with great animations and a little bit grounded color scheme. Everything has a grittiness of reality and animators tried to make everything look as believable as possible. The imagery definitely looks interesting. Sound design is a weak point of the application. However, we think that the community will love this product as it looks like a high quality entertainment that was made with soul.
Viking Gods: Thor and Loki
As moviegoers continue to awe at the marvels of the recent MCU hit Thor: Ragnarok, some crafty developers do not lose time and release games that are not directly related to the movie release but still utilize recognizable characters. The god of thunder Thor and the good of mockery and jokes Loki are both protecting Nordic treasures from your greedy hands. You will need to be smarter and stronger in order to become richer. This game definitely looks like a very good product and a result of collaborations between talented artists and coders. A standard 3×5 playing field is designed around the style of Nordic cultures. Characters are drawn with attention to details and colors definitely look very fresh.
