South African game design house Bla Bla Bla Studios has entered into an exclusive game development and distribution agreement with RNG Foundry Limited, to design and integrate games to Microgaming’s Quickfire platform, including an exclusive first-rights game concept agreement.
RNG Foundry is a gaming accelerator launched in association with Velo Partners, the UK’s most active gaming investor. The accelerator aims to work with, and fund, entrepreneurial talent in the gaming industry, providing a blend of equity investment capital, technical resources and distribution opportunities.
“We are very excited to be working with the Foundry team”
Evan Hoff, RNG Foundry Partner, comments: “We followed Bla Bla Bla Studios for some time and liked what we saw. In a relatively short period they have developed an international reputation for their leading edge animation and specialist knowledge of how to produce compelling content for casino players in the key regulated markets. It’s great to be working with such a dynamic and creative company.”
Bla Bla Bla Studios have grown from one animator with one client on the books four years ago, to a fully-fledged casino game development house. There is now a 20-strong team of animators, developers and support staff, providing content to clients across the globe.
The BBBS shareholders:
- MD Carmen Granger
- Director Legal IP Martin Feinstein
- Creative Diretor Gareth Thomas
- Art Director Malcolm Wope
“Operators like three things about us: our reliability, animation quality, and how creatively versatile we are across different visual and thematic genres.”
Evan Hoff adds: “The games produced by Bla Bla Bla Studios via this development agreement will get to market faster and with more vigor, thanks to Microgaming’s Quickfire platform and marketing muscle, combined with the fast-track integration we can offer via our partnership with the Mobile Mill game development toolset. It’s an exciting opportunity for all involved.”
