Gameburger Studios’ Creative Designer Matt Carvajal Interview – SLOTSCALENDAR.COM
Interview with Gameburger Studios
Hi! Im Matt Carvajal, Creative Designer at Gameburger Studios.
What is it about Gameburger that makes you love working there?
Talent and passion. We really love making and playing games, innovating and having fun in the process. We have a smart and dedicated team that is truly passionate about the quality and level of engagement of our products.
We’re excited to see you’re revisiting Pots of Gold for “Fishin’ Christmas Pots Of Gold™” – what can you tell us about the game?
Fishin’ Christmas Pots of Gold™ builds on the highly-popular original Fishin’ Pots of Gold™ game engine with an entirely new holiday-themed art package. The title features direct cash collection in both the base game and free spins, where Santa Flynn reels in any themed cash or jackpot symbols. In Free Spins, the reels expand and double the lines in play. More than one Santa Flynn can appear and each one reels in all cash and gift-wrapped Pot of Gold jackpots! Santa Flynn symbols collect to the accumulation trail and award retriggers with cash symbol multipliers up to 10x.
Will the changes just be cosmetic, or will players feel as if they’re playing a new game?
The game engine at core is the proven Fishin’ Pots of Gold™ math model, but the team went holiday crazy extending the visual and animation package with a myriad of ‘easter egg’ surprises. Watch for special appearances by Santa and his reindeer in the night sky, a dancing snowman, as well as peeking costumed fish hiding among the background decorations. The team brought every aspect of the game to life with a twinkle of whimsical holiday spirit throughout every game screen!
What specific features are you excited for players to enjoy?
We love the Christmas holidays and we’re particularly excited to bring all the audio and visual magic of the season and marry it to a proven math model that players love. We’re sure players will settle into this festive treat and have a blast fishing for potential holiday rewards along with Santa Flynn! With cash symbol multipliers up to 10x and Pot of Gold jackpots up to 5,000 times the stake, it’s potentially going to be a very Merry Christmas indeed!
What is your general approach to the games you’ll be developing in 2023?
We have a lot of great content and plenty of awesome surprises coming in 2023. We listen to our players, streamers and influencers, and we will definitely continue to innovate our mechanics and game features. It’s all about what the player wants with that distinctive Gameburger flavour. We like to offer players a healthy mix of new offers with innovative features, as well as follow on our most popular brands with exciting and rich sequels.
What new mechanics will you be looking to deliver in 2023?
Our market and player analysis and feedback has proven there is a healthy appetite for a blend of some of our best mechanics like EpicStrike™. We have some huge plans up our sleeves that we’re really lookingforward to bringing to the industry. You’ll have to watch this space!
