Trancemonkey, I would think the players would be willing to try the new concepts and innovations. In your situation, was the player's dislike a result of the gaming company not giving the player enough time to "get to know the game" before deciding that it wasn't a success? There have been a number of new games which I originally said that I didn't like after playing them for a short amount of time, but after a few more times of going back to it, the game kind of grew on me and I eventually came around to liking the game.



Sure you would hope that... But the problem is people won't pay to learn a game... They want to understand (and enjoy a game) within the first session... That doesn't necessarily mean they have to win, but they do have to enjoy it. Making people enjoy winning is easy... Making people enjoy losing is a much bigger challenge and something all producers strive for.

There is a lot of education of casinos and other operators as to certain product lines needing longer to bed... But if you are selling a "slot" game then it is going to be measured in performance against other slots, and no matter how much you argue that it "should be given longer to bed in", they are unlikely to give you much extra time and even then they would have to buy in to the product as "different and better". While I agree this product is different I don't think it's better... Better to me is engaging, exciting, entertaining and something that makes me keep coming back. This doesn't tick all of those boxes for me I'm afraid.

The only places simple games like this work in a retail environment (and by like this, I mean with no feature and just wins) are Eastern European fruit markets but the double spin, as well as being potentially illegal as I've previously explained) I think would be very confusing for the players.

You could try and partner with a social casino site to get some initial feedback and see how it does...

Billryan, the point of this web page was not to entertain players but to show a game concept for designers and developers.

With all due respect, I tend to believe that designers and developers tend to be interested in game concepts that will entertain players.

I'd think you would want input from potential players, but anyway, best of luck.

Game content is what entertains players. To have a TV does not mean it will be entertaining, that's up to the show producers. To have a slot concept does not mean it will be fun to play. It's up to the game developers and designers to add bonus rounds, fun animation, sounds and social media.

Hi everyone,

Here is a new game concept for slots:
http://basketslot.com

What do you think?

Thanks,
Alex



How silly of me to think this was soliciting opinions.

Apologies for editing here... I completely misread what VladAlex1 had posted.
