Game Spotlight: Lady Peacock

Lady-Peacock_glass_btns

We think peacocks are definitely one of the most colorful animals you’ll ever see! They strut around their habitats, tails on display, proud and beautiful and unique. Take a hint from a peacock and add some color to your life – that’s what Lady Peacock did! She has wonderful style and loads of confidence thanks to one particular species of flying bird.

For this reason, Lady Peacock has been unlocked and released on Shake the Sky as the 48th premium game! In addition to its amazing art, Lady Peacock has Expanding Wilds in its Free Games bonus. If you get a wild symbol during free games on reels 2, 3, or 4, it will expand vertically and fills all positions on that reel, which will bring you sky-high wins!

What do you think of Lady Peacock? What do you think of the Expanding Wilds feature? Make sure to COMMENT in the conversation bubble located at the top right of this blog post and let us know!

Employee Spotlight

Meet one of the brilliant minds behind great slot titles like She-Wolf, Kiss of the Rose and more! Get to know Scott Altmann!

 1. What inspired you to create Kiss of the Rose?

We had this idea to create a moody, yet beautiful atmosphere with this game. A little dark, slightly gothic, but not morose or scary. When we got the approval to change the original girl, I chose to make the new girl closer to one of the girls by the artist J. W. Waterhouse- but with a darker twist.

2. Did She-Wolf come out like you had envisioned it would?

It actually came out better! It was one of our first live-action games…if not our first. It was also the first time we were integrating 3D assets into a live-action environment.   I was definitely anxious about the results of the new techniques, but with the direction and skill of my teammates we were able to pull it all together. I guess I might have had a little to do with it too.

3. What is the most difficult part when making a game? 

I think the most difficult part from a visual art perspective, is when you know something is not working, but you cannot identify the problem right away. Some games come together with great ease, and others may feel like a struggle. It’s important to have a process in place when you hit those roadblocks, so you can keeping moving forward and not freeze up.

4. What is your favorite game that you have worked on at High 5 Casino?

Cat Gangster is one of my favorites. I got the chance to create a whole world where these characters live in, and I think it is unlike any game we’ve done before. The gameplay and sound package is really great too on that game and I love the way it all came together.  A close second would have to be Sinbad and the Sultan of Fire since we were able to give it a bit of a cinematic experience alongside the casino one.

5. What theme of games do you prefer to create?

I would have to say the fantasy genre, since there are no limits to what you can do visually. Animals are really fun too.

6. If you could be a High 5 Casino character who would you like to be? Why?

Well, Dr. Amante seems to be enjoying himself and he has a good job.

8. Who or What inspired you to become an artist?

This is a typical response from artists, but I have been drawing ever since I can remember. It is as much a compulsion as it is a passion. I cannot imagine my life doing anything else. If I am not drawing or painting after a while I just do not feel right.

9. If you weren’t an artist what other profession would you have chosen?

Honestly, I was always going to do something related to the arts. Even jobs I previously had that weren’t painting or drawing, I was somehow working in the art field. Whether it was doing graphic design, or working in the bookshop of the Frick Art Museum, I have always been in an artistic environment.

9. How long have you been a part of High 5 Games?

3.5 years                                                                                                                                                                                                            10. Which game on High 5 Casino is your favorite?

I really like “Snow Monkeys” for its unique art and animation package.
