The agreement will see the real money library of games from AvatarUX being offered on the Yggdrasil platform, with many of the games having an Asian flair to them. There are three other studios offering their games on the platform, including Fantasma Games, Northern Lights, and the excellent Rabcat. AvatarUX is being granted access to BOOST, which is Yggdrasil's backend promotional tools to promote their games.
Commenting on the deal Yggdrasil's Stuart McCarthy said, We are hugely excited to be partnering exclusively with AvatarUX. What we have seen so far has been stunning so we can't wait to release a series of collaborative new titles onto the market. As publisher looking to work with studios around the globe that fit local criteria.
"YGS Masters is about forging partnerships with the world's premier independent studios that fit in with local criteria across a multitude of markets. This then brings new, high-quality and highly original gaming experiences to our customers."
AvatarUX's Carson Wan added: "We are thrilled to be working with Yggdrasil. The YGS Masters programme is rapidly growing to become a leading venture allowing independent studios to blossom, and we eagerly look forward to being part of it.
"Our games are unique. Why do we make slot games in Asia for the European market? Well, it worked for Bruce Lee! YGS Masters now gives us the opportunity to use Yggdrasil's infrastructure and platform capabilities, including BOOST®, to really push us, enhance our games and take our business to the next level."
The games are being integrated and will be available for play soon.
