Endemol Shine UK, a division of entertainment producer Endemol, has confirmed that its Endemol Games business has entered into a development and distribution deal with gaming machines and digital content supplier Blueprint Gaming.
Under the agreement, the two companies will work together to create a series of new online and mobile slots games based on Endemol Shine UK’s brands and third-party licences.
The deal will cover the forthcoming launch of a new slot game based on the Austin Powers film franchise, which Endemol Games recently licensed from Warner Bros. Consumer Products.
Blueprint and Endemol Games have also collaborated on Deal or No Deal Dream Factory, a title based on the popular Deal or No Deal television game show.
Games will be distributed via Blueprint’s remote gaming server, which delivers content to various gaming operators across the market.
Owain Walbyoff, who was last year promoted to managing director of Endemol Games, said: “Blueprint Gaming is renowned for its ability to develop games with fantastic features and compelling game mechanics.
“Combining our popular entertainment brands with Blueprint’s ability to deliver great games makes for a winning partnership.”
