Northern Lights will be the first to join Yggdrasil Masters Programme
Northern Lights Gaming will be the first independent game studio to develop on its platform as part of the Yggdrasil Game Server (YGS) Masters programme, Yggdrasil Gaming has announced.
This partnership includes the integration of the game studio's high-quality, UK-targeted slots content being made available to Yggdrasil’s operator partners.
As part of the programme, Yggdrasil will be making BOOST™ accessible as well as the collection of in-game promotional tools, allowing studios to develop their own versions of these tools within their game clients.
Manchester and Stockholm-based Northern Lights’ content will significantly boost Yggdrasil’s offering.
Head of Studio Partnerships at Yggdrasil, Stuart McCarthy, commented: “Since launching YGS Masters last month, we have received many enquires and I am thrilled to announce our first partnership.
“Northern Lights Gaming has built a team with unparalleled expertise when it comes to developing for the UK market, and we’ve been hugely impressed by what we’ve seen so far.
“We are certain YGS Masters will help take Northern Lights’ content to the next level, and we are excited to share the games with customers in the coming months.”
Northern Lights Gaming (NL Gaming Sweden AB) was founded by ex-Barcrest and WMS executives with decades of experience at the forefront of the online gaming industry.
The CEO of the gaming studio, Andrew Goodale, added: “As we are finishing off our first games and preparing to show them to the world, we are extremely proud to be the first external game developer to gain access to Yggdrasil’s innovative platform.
“We look forward to building a close working relationship with Yggdrasil and making the most of the powerful tools they have developed. These are exciting times for Northern Lights Gaming.”
Team members are behind some of the UK’s most successful games, including Rainbow Riches, and have repeatedly created and successfully launched games and entire gaming platforms both for desktop and mobile gameplay.
