Microgaming Debuts Village People: Macho Moves at This Year's ICE
One of the most important annual events in the online gaming industry, ICE Totally Gaming, took place in London in early February. As usual, renowned developers from all four corners of the world used this event to showcase their technologies, reveal new, and announce upcoming titles.
Among exhibitors in the UK, capital is one of the biggest names in the business, the Isle of Man-headquartered producer of online gaming content, Microgaming.
Plenty of New Additions
Microgaming used the opportunity to add new titles to its extensive portfolio of video slots. One of these new releases is a new game titled Village People: Macho Moves.
Launched earlier this week, Village People: Macho Moves is developed exclusively for Microgaming by Fortune Factory Studios, and as its title suggests, the slot game is inspired by one of the biggest names of the disco scene of the 1970s, the American American disco group called Village People.
The group was best known for their on-stage costumes, catchy tunes, and suggestive lyrics. Players can look forward to seeing the six original members of this band on the reels, while the game will use some of the groups biggest musical hits, such as the hit singles “Macho Man”, “In the Navy”, “Go West” and their biggest hit, “Y.M.C.A.”.
According to Microgaming, this six-reel video slot is a mobile-friendly game and will become available to operators later in the year.
The first day of this year’s ICE Totally Gaming was extremely exciting for Microgaming, as the renowned developer hosted a special live DJ set, used to introduce another new arrival.
We’re talking about to famous female super spy Jane Blonde, who is making a comeback on the reels in the new Agent Jane Blonde Returns video slot, a game developed by the South African gaming company Stormcraft Studios.
A Lot More Waiting for Visitors
This is the second game featuring this super agent, after the original, which hit the market more than a decade ago, proved to be a smashing hit.
During ICE Totally Gaming, which Microgaming described as the largest exhibition of the online gaming industry, the company will be present on stand N5-120 at ExCel London, where visitors will have the chance to see everything the gaming giant has prepared for us, including the punk-themed game Shogun of Time, developed in partnership with Just For The Win.
To round up the event, Microgaming will showcase the latest Lara Croft video slot, which arrives thanks to a new agreement with Square Enix. The two sides have been working together for more than 15 years, and it all began with the launch of the first-ever licensed branded slot game – Lara Croft: Tomb Raider back in 2004.
But that’s not all, since Slingshot Studios will premier Banana Odyssey, while Microgaming’s British partner Switch Studios debuts the new Blackjack table games.
Microgaming’s official statement said that presenting six independent game studios on the stand, each on a mission to develop exclusive content for Microgaming’s customers worldwide, the leading software supplier would invite attendees to immerse themselves in all the stunning artwork, mechanics and new features of the company’s very latest releases.
