Swedish online gambling software developer, Quickspin, released a slot which is called Wild Tome of the Wood and it goes live on Tuesday, September 10th. The game is stirred by ancient woodlands, quirky animals, wonky trees and magic potions which already sounds good for huge wins.
Whittlewood Forest is a former medieval hunting ground in Northamptonshire, England, where a reclusive wizard named Tom lives. But his friends call him Middy (short for Midas) due to his life-long obsession of trying to turn things into gold. So far, he’s failed and some years after a streak of unsuccessful experiments with mixed gold-related spells, the wizard’s Wild Tome has gone completely wild!
Instead, after years of having gold-related spells written into it, his Wild Tome has started to turn random things around it into gold! This causes all kinds of problems, so the wizard and his friends: the half frog/half newt Crikey, the fox Sylvester the 3rd (nicknamed “Sly” for obvious reasons), and the posh owl from Oxford named Eleanor, are trying to put a stop to it. But before they break the spell, why not take advantage of the situation and grab some gold for themselves?
The new add-on to the catalog has four reels, six rows and 26 bet lines which are, of course, accompanied by a swirl of thrilling features that turn other symbols into wilds to get the All Wilds Win!
Producer, Bjarne Grönnevik Insights about the Game
Quickspin’s producer of Wild Tome of the Woods, Bjarne Grönnevik, recently gave an interview and shared his visions about the game.
Here’s what he had to say about the development process:
“After just a few brainstorming sessions the characters started to take shape, and then their backstories kind of just popped up from our imagination. The owl Eleanor for example, she’s a character who claims she went to Oxford – even though we all know that there’s a distinct difference between “going to” and “being hatched at” Oxford! All these quirky personalities started to come to life, and we had a lot of fun developing them.”
Bjarne Grönnevik also said:
“The main creative drive behind the game was to create a delightful place with a fun ambiance – a relaxing world that you would happily sit down and enjoy spending some time in. That was the driving force behind all the creative decisions: choosing the location, the lighting, the colour scheme, and the sounds. We really wanted to create an atmosphere where you would feel like you’re in a beautiful oak forest, surrounded by big old trees with golden yellow sunbeams filtering through the treetops.”
Michael Spinks’s words
Michael Spinks, Lead Artist and FX Artist also shared his opinion about the company’s newest slot release and said that the studio ended up combining rich woodlands with magic, which ultimately lead to an amazing story – the Wild Tome itself.
“When I was designing this game, I really wanted to give it a fun and happy feeling, and I wanted to give the book as much personality as possible. And being from Nottingham myself, I also wanted it to feel like a magical Sherwood forest.”
This September, go green and step into this forest for a one-of-a-kind adventure!
