In an exciting move for PearFiction Studios, the Canadian-based company has proudly announced that have joined the RNG Foundry Gaming accelerator. This programme is aimed at growing the online casino sector by investing in smaller studios and giving them distribution opportunities that they may not have got on their own. It was launched in association with one of the biggest gaming investors in the United Kingdom, Velo Partners.
Through this arrangement, PearFiction Studios will be creating casino content exclusively for Microgaming. The developers already have a reputation for creating unique and highly entertaining content and are now looking forward to having their casino games played across the Microgaming suite of online casinos. They are also excited about the new opportunities that will be afforded them now that they have joined the RNG Foundry accelerator. Their chief executive officer, Thierry Semoff, commented that they are sure to reach new heights thanks to the RNG Foundry.
The RNG Foundry accelerator programme is aimed at boosting small studios that have a lot of potential and giving them the leg up that they deserve within the casino industry. Studios that are invited to join the programme are provided with technical resources and office space (shared with other accelerator studios). They are also offered excellent equity investment packages. Other development studios working through the programme include Just For The Win, Moon Active and Junglee Games.
Mark McGinley, programme director for the RNG Foundry, commented on the new addition, saying that they are definitely one to watch this year. PearFiction Studios shows incredible imagination in the ideas for their casino games and backs those ideas up with excellent execution. McGinley is sure that the company will do well, especially now that they have the backing of the accelerator programme.
PearFiction Studios has shown a keen eye for storytelling in their casino games, and have included interesting mathematics elements and excellent graphics to create a unique playing experience. The developers have also shown a strong moral compass and look to ensure their titles have a strong responsible gaming commitment. This combination is likely what caught the eye of Microgaming and led to an exclusivity deal between the two.
In 2019, PearFiction Studios created their first casino game that was exclusively for Microgaming. It was called The Smashing Biscuit and their inspiration for this game is said to be from land-based casino games that are already popular. Their next title is set to release in the second half of this year. It will be called Chicago Gold and will have a Roaring Twenties theme.
