Every new tablet based mobile slot game begins as an upstart idea.
It’s a process which includes the fundamental steps of composing a proper name for a concept (what’s this game called?) along with matching that idea to an initial set of game parameters and playable features. At Zero8 Studios, this is a time in the early life of game when you’ll find us just literally throwing stuff out there among ourselves and seeing what has potential to be fun and appealing and essentially what’s not. Ideas get verbalized, sketched out, compared to, scribbled on, yanked around, laughed at, and eventually in the end the best ones go on to becoming realized game mechanics and art styles. Our creative team makes every effort to thoroughly “think through” every possible direction of several desirable ideas about video reel slot games and what makes them fun for players.
In multimedia circles and in video game development, you might often hear the familiar words, “production pipeline” used quite a bit when a studio tries to describe their own inner workings as a creative entertainment production environment. It’s the best way for us to convey the events that surround the everyday tasks and procedures which are completed by members of the team when a game is coming together. At Zero8 Studios, we are able to rely on decades of proven industry experience from a wide gathering of gaming professionals. This ensures that our production techniques are the best and most effective and with all of that our games benefit from the strong advantage given to them from these rigorous standards being kept in place. Our talent bench runs deep and there’s no shortage of expert mobile slot gaming insights from our studio’s leadership.
When we are emulating traditionally popular casino slot game components for a new tablet-based mobile video reel slot game, it’s important to always remember what has always made these games fun to begin with! Video slot machines are a cornucopia of rich and vivid colors being displayed across attractive and appealing graphics which are animated and infused with explosive moments of special effects, clever transitions and above all math—all of this happening for the entertainment and benefit of the player. Our creative team at Zero8 Studios enters into these projects with a passion for entertainment and for being intensely innovative when it comes to designing the next successful tablet-based video slot game that has all the telltale attributes of a real casino slot machine. Once a series of game concepts and user interface iterations has been produced and reviewed by the team, it’s time to actually build out the basic working parts of a game by using the art assets generated from those early concepts. Animations are keyframed, effects are decided upon, characters are finalized, major and minor slot reel symbols are designed, and the overall components of the user interface are built and properly illustrated for integration into the game. This is when you can expect the first working and playable version or “build” of the game is finally be ready for testing. This is also when we start finding out what areas of the project needs further development before moving forward. It’s a crucial step to see how the overall art style of a game could be improved by additional creative input from the team.
