Leading iGaming development firm Play’n GO have sat down and talked to HammerFall, a Swedish power metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden, ahead of the new slot game collaboration.
The band’s latest venture is a slot game, created in collaboration with Play’n GO, to reach out to fans in a new way that meant it was important that the game represented them in the right way and gave the fans something they could love.
Joacim Cans explained more and outlined the vision:
The most important for us was that the fans of the band would recognise themselves while playing the game.
The overall look and feel of the game had to stay true to what HammerFall stands for, both visually and conceptually.
Now that the game has been completed, the band are more than happy that Play’n GO have achieved that mission. We believe this was realised to a tee; this is something we can stand by 100%. Fantastic work!
The game features the band’s iconic mascot Hector the Paladin, a fearless knight who wields a hammer as his weapon of choice. Hector has been around almost as long as the band, featuring on nearly every album cover since.
We wanted to have our own Eddie, the Iron Maiden mascot, Joacim remembers fondly,
A powerful warrior who would instantly be recognisable as HammerFall’s even if you couldn’t see the logo.
This aim has certainly been achieved with their mascot becoming synonymous with the band, even developing his look over the years as they have.
The original Hector was conceived by Andreas Marshall, who has done five album covers for us over the years. But it was really Samwise Didier who took the character to new heights with each album cover and created the Hector we know today.
