Nektan enhances in-house games offering with Rocksalt partnership
Games designer to produce bespoke content for Nektan-branded titles
Nektan plc (AIM: NKTN), the fast-growing international gaming technology platform and services provider, has partnered with games designer Rocksalt Interactive in a move which will further diversify the platform provider’s in-house games offering.
As part of the deal, Rocksalt will lean on its expertise to design Nektan-branded HTML5 games, which will be made available across Nektan’s Evolve and E-Lite platforms.
Rocksalt will be responsible for all the front-end functionality of the new releases, including illustrations, features and game assets, with Nektan handling the games engine.
The first Nektan-branded game produced by Rocksalt to go live will be Plucky Pirates: Devil’s Triangle. The pirate-themed slot game features highly-engaging gameplay along with state-of-the-art graphics.
The new partnership will see a minimum of twelve new games produced and distributed to Nektan’s network of commercial operators and white-label casinos.
Jane Ryan, Chief Commercial Officer of B2B at Nektan said: “Rocksalt Interactive is a highly-regarded global games designer. We are thrilled to be working alongside a great team that can boost the diversity of games that we offer. The company develops a number of popular global free-to-play games, and we are sure that its team of quality designers will produce new and exciting content that will appeal to a wide audience.”
Utkarsh Veer, Director / CEO at Rocksalt said: “This is a really exciting opportunity for us. Together, we are producing fresh and entertaining games that incorporate our expertise in games design and Nektan’s knowledge of player preferences and the casino market as a whole. We look forward developing the partnership while delivering quality games to Nektan’s growing network of casino sites.”
