EveryMatrix’s Spearhead Studio signs licensing deal with Nolimit City for use of their trademark mechanics.
Ever since Big Time Gaming struck a deal to license its Megaways mechanic to fellow supplier Blueprint Gaming back in 2018, trademark mechanics has become the hottest thing in the industry. These days, there is a large selection of trademarked mechanics available on the market such as Nobleways, Foxify, Megaclusters, Hyperspins, and Megaquads just to mention a few.
Whilst some of these trademarked mechanics are more unique and creative than others, only a selected few has what it takes to go on export – one such example is Nolimit City and their xWays and xNudge mechanics. As has been made official today, Nolimit City has landed a deal with developer Spearhead Studios which will allow them to incorporate the popular mechanics in their upcoming releases. According to reliable sources, the first game from Spearhead Studios to make use of the mechanics is to be titled Book of Spies Mission X.
Mathias Larsson, Managing Director of Spearhead Studios, comments: “Both xWays and xNudge concepts are fantastic features that bring out a new level of exciting game play. We’ll be combining these two mechanics with a classic “Book” game, and we are certain this will turn into our flagship game of the year.”
The xWays mechanic, known for increasing the reel height when landing one or several xWays symbols, increases the amount of total win ways in the entire reel set with every symbol expansion. xNudge, meanwhile, is a nudging-wild with increasing win multiplier with every nudge. Both mechanics combined can whip up monumental wins and will make room for some interesting gameplay.
Malcolm Mizzi, Commercial Director at Nolimit City, says: “We’re over the moon with this announcement. This partnership has solidified the impact that our inhouse trademarked mechanics have in the industry and we’re immensely proud of the achievement. Having an ambitious upcoming studio like Spearhead represent our xNudge® and xWays® mechanics, breaths room for more innovation and unique twists on the two combined! We’re eager to witness what others have in store for them.”
