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.

I introduced my late husband to Facebook slots, and then he introduced me to High 5.

2. What’s your go-to game on High 5 Casino? Why?

My favorite features are Expanding Wilds, Split Symbols and Super Stacks.

5. If you could hang out with any character from our games for a day, which one would it be? Why?
I would hang out with Robin Hood in the Legend of Robin and Marian because one of my nick-names is Maid Marian. We could chat and laugh about our legendary characters!

I would like to be the Oba, Carnaval! lady because she knows how to have fun and her gaiety is infectious!

I would arrange a blind date for She-Wolf and Night of The Wolf because they are a perfect match for one another.

8. Which High 5 Casino game do you feel the luckiest with?
I feel luckiest with my “go-to” game of the week. Sometimes I “go-to” Gypsy, Dr. Amante, The Green Machine Global, Mystery Train, or whichever one is hitting the most wins for me!

The best bonuses are the ones with expanding wilds – Lucky Horse, The Charleston, Figaro, and White Falls.

10. What High 5 Casino game do you think has the best sound package?
The best sound package is The Palladium when in a mood for modern dancing and The Charleston when in the mood for 1920’s radio music.

Celebrating Beauty at H5C

H5C_Celebrate_Beauty1

We recently asked our players what they find beautiful in their life. The comments we received on our Facebook fan page were amazing! We think you’ll all be excited to read what your beautiful High 5 friends have to say about beauty.

Check out these beautiful comments below:
Beautiful is is waking up every morning with a reasonable portion of health and strength. Beautiful is also being able to love and appreciate my family, friends and neighbors and to be able to pray and thank God for all blessings that he has bestowed upon me.

My life is beautiful! I have a loving family, husband, children and friends! Thank you High 5 Casino!!

Beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder. I love this time of year when the trees have leafed out, when grass is once again green, tulips in bloom, lilacs with their fragrance, iris and peonies blooming. People with their happy smiles, which seem to appear more often this time of year is also a thing of beauty.

The beautiful world we live in, our family, friends and all creatures…. large and small…. thankful for our many blessings…. and of course… the games on High 5 Casino that bring us joy with every spin.

What’s beautiful to me is still seeing and meeting sweet kind people, a gentleman holding the door open, my children’s smiles, and family coming together!

Beauty is looking in the mirror and seeing how beautiful you are no matter if you have flaws or not heart emoticon!

Beauty is everywhere. Just open your eyes and look around.

Having a roof over my head and food to eat…there are people out there that are worse off than I am!

What’s beautiful to you? Comment in the conversation bubble located at the top right of the blog post and let us know.
