Collaboration for Fort Mason Games
Every successful firm must, at some point, decide whether it prefers collaboration or competition. For Fort Mason Games, which develops mobile social games, collaboration won over competition. That outlook is featured in its four new features for its Confetti Casino brand
The objective of Fort Mason in producing these games is to welcome female players to the world of social gaming. Through these games, players befriend other players so they can continue playing the same slot machine or move on to other slots together. Fort Mason is hoping that this first-of-its-kind innovation will utilize collaborative play so that users build friendships while user adoption increases. Fort Mason believes that this format will make games more attractive to women.
Fort Mason Games stated that their Confetti Cannon feature is triggered when users work together while their prizes are to be based on how much their alliances helped to trigger a virtual cannon. The company declared that players can now subsequently exploit these relationships to enjoy the social titles collaboratively. They earn faster prices and achieve better in-game rewards.
On the Confetti Casino platform players are able to keep track of each other and their in-game relationships by expressing themselves via a selection of emoji GIFs. Additionally, Confetti Casino patrons experience more collaborative play and foster friendships by sending each other proprietary social currency virtual hearts. All of these connections bring even more in-game rewards.
Inclusivity and Innovation
Former Zynga Incorporated trendsetter Kate Gorman is the CEO of Fort Mason Games. She explained that the Confetti Casino brand is endeavoring to "change the face of the industry".
Gorman said “Women enjoy collaborating but mobile games tend to be competitive and combative. We’re passionate about helping these women feel represented by creating games directly for them. And by doing so, we’re setting an industry precedent that will push mobile gaming into a new era of inclusivity and innovation.”
Confetti Casino is available for free download for Android, Amazon Kindle and iOS devices.
