Who is Side City Studios?
NYX Gaming Group acquired Side City Studios, a 3rd party game development studio, in November 2015 joining NextGen and NYX Social Gaming. The company was established in 1999 and caters to the digital production needs of the land based, online and social casino industry. They’re a unique provider in that they specialize in several areas including both products and solutions. Based in Montreal, the acquisition was one that helped position NYX for entry into the North American market.
We realize that our readers need a bit more clarification here. In terms of game development, they have just a few titles but their bigger business is in the creation of the elements required to make a game. For example, you know that tune that gets stuck in your head when the bonus is triggered on your favorite slot? That exact audio just might come from Side City along with the 2D or 3D graphics and animations. Each of these are critical aspects for slots but the company makes it possible for its clients to pick and choose single elements or opt for all three.
Slot games include Egyptian Rise, Buccaneer’s Bay, Fiesta Cubana and Charms and Witches. Spin on multi-line games and experience unique features. For example, Egyptian Rise makes things very exciting with the ‘On a Roll’ feature, which triggers a re-spin with extra wilds following every win. Other bonus features include free spins and more.
There’s more than the production of slot games and machines. The company offers additional services such as HD video and TV marketing, virtual scenography, digital cinema, digital signage, concept and design for online, PC and video games and iPhone apps.
