What is being said?

Vlaytchev: “It’s interesting because we had a couple of games and we didn’t feel 100 per cent on each of them and essentially what Orbs of Osiris ended up being is a bit of a mash up between them. But we had this idea that we wanted to do a game where things reveal underneath but it took us a while to get to where the end result is.

“We looked also at what other products are out there, what other games that do something that little bit different, we wanted to put a bit of a twist on a cascade as well but it was a good yield research experimentation, having a bit of fun with it as well.”

Parker: “For us it was something different in the portfolio just a different way to present symbols and wins to the players. It did throw up a few challenges for us along the way. Especially things you take for granted like anticipation because the anticipation on a real spinning you’re sort of you do well and you take it for granted, you darken off the symbols you highlight the reel that you are anticipating on and it became obvious pretty quickly within the development that we also had to build this tension and anticipation. 

“The challenges along the way were interesting, this digging down the layers was interesting to us, whether we could make that work and bring the excitement to the game through a different way of presenting the symbols and the wins.”
