The online casino world is moving fast enough that it would be easy to miss a new entrant on the development landscape, but Makitone is a company everyone should keep an eye on. Makitone, currently working in Estonia, was created by a team of experienced developers who have been involved with long-standing companies in the business. The team has so far only released five titles but the quality and gameplay of the five is already turning heads.
The team at Makitone is using the new HTML5 platform as their initial coding software, making games that are mobile ready from the outset and them converting them into the older format as needed. This reverse engineering method has shortened the time it takes for the titles to be available for both the online and mobile platforms. With many of the top companies switching to HTML5, this seems like a good way to get to the front of the pack, technologically speaking.
The first five games are all based on standard themes but the company is looking to add to the selection soon. Currently, players will find Caesar’s Triumph, Koi Garden, Secrets of a Geisha, The Gang Job and Viking Victory. The three most intriguing of the five include:
Five games may seem like a small line-up for an emerging development company, but Makitone has done a stunning job with the limited group of titles. What the company has already accomplished gives a glimpse into what the future will hold for this team. By focusing on the basics of the programming platform and game themes, Makitone has set itself up well for future expansion of game innovation and quality. Makitone may be starting small but it is obvious that they are thinking large things for the months and years ahead.
