BGaming has recently said that VR games can be a breath of fresh air in the iGaming industry as team talks discuss groundbreaking solutions and innovative classics on graphics and design as they share interesting trends.
They noted that excellent graphics is a key criterion for successful online casino games followed by generous RTP, sophisticated features, being modern and quick! Now we’re going to look at other interesting trends, spoken by the experts themselves!
Mobile gaming has been on the rise for a while and according to a corporate report, more than 94% of BGaming’s audience chooses to play using mobile devices. This is the common tendency that influences almost every stage of the production process.
Alexey Ulanov, Art Director at BGaming said “iGaming providers began to produce vertical online slots and games similar in logic to Match-3 games. Accordingly, the graphics adapt to these requirements. This is an important point because it is familiar and convenient for the player.”
Ulanov added, “As for the classic slots, we can see some simplification, providers have to reject small details that were important on desktops and slot machines, but are hardly distinguishable in mobile devices.”
Mixing it Up
To coincide with a contemporary flat style of design BGaming says that games should have minimum effects and elements as well as the absence of gradients or mixed colours. With primitive graphic art, the hyper-casual design still allows the provider to bring their own vision, making a game unique.
BGaming makes their games unique with primitive graphic art and hyper-casual design.
The share of games having these two kinds of styles is rapidly growing thanks to the influence of crypto gambling. This also impacts not just crypto games but all areas of iGaming design.
Alexey Ulanov commented, “Speaking about BGaming, now we’re working on the hyper-casual title called Space XY. It will be a good example of a crypto game. In general, we expect to see the development of both graphics-intensive games and games with flat, and hyper-casual design. There will be attempts to mix styles and create versions of the same game in adjacent styles. That's an intriguing challenge and only the analysis will show us how it works”.
Ulanov went on to say that the casual design with its similarities to the cartoon style design is still mostly in favour among the leading iGaming providers. He said, “This approach gives artists the opportunity to bring different ideas and game themes to life. Dig Dig Digger, the latest release by BGaming, is a shining example of a casual-style slot”.
Is VR Gaming the Future?
As technology continues to advance, software providers are still attempting to enter the niche market of AR and VR games. 3D visualisation of poker, slots and other casino games is supposed to regale completely new impressions to players.
Alexandr Shavel, Head of BizDev Department at BGaming said, “This is a very promising area for iGaming in general and BGaming in particular. This can become a new breath for online games. We’re currently working on VR games but do this in our own way, it will be something completely different. We would like to give players another way to play their favourite games and have fun. To make it possible, we need to have more convenient devices but, for sure, this issue will be solved soon”.
Bringing Classics Back!
And finally, when it comes to traditional fruit games, they are still in demand! These kinds of games seem almost impossible to bring something new into them but providers are still trying to recreate them.
In fact, BGaming became the first-ever studio to offer a concept of a chameleon-style slot. They prepared a few packs of graphics for one game and as a result, their Fruit Million Slot was released at the end of last year.
Yulia Aliakseyeva, the Game Producer at BGaming, highlighted: “The game is going to change its look more than 5 times throughout the year, sharing the festive mood of Christmas, St, Valentine’s Day, Halloween, and other big days. BGaming’s art team created different graphics for the slot to bring players a festive mood. Thanks to this, the game always stays relevant.”
Thanks to an industry expert team and a player-driven approach BGaming will continue to analyze and share industry trends and remains one of the leading trendsetters in the industry.
