Fly high with FunFair Games’ Hugo: Up & Away
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

FunFair Games has announced its latest next-generation title, Hugo: Up & Away, an exciting multiplayer crash-game created in partnership with IP-owner 5th Planet Games.

The story-driven release sees the lovable troll Hugo navigate through perilous storms and thunderous clouds in a plane full of jewels, all while avoiding his foes’ explosive TNT balloons.

A fulfilling multiplier increases the further Hugo travels, with a delightful maximum win worth x2,500. However, should our protagonist be struck by fatal lightning, the rewarding journey comes to an end. Players must decide the best time to parachute to safety in order to earn more rewards.

To support Hugo’s companions, players can place two bets each round and utilise the title’s advantageous auto-eject features that help users receive sky-high wins.

Hugo is a fictional character who was first introduced through a hit interactive live TV show that aired in the 90s and entertained people in more than 40 countries. The franchise also amassed a large following in the video-gaming space, bringing forward a range of computer, mobile and console games that received global recognition.

Thanks to FunFair Games’ recently announced partnership with Hugo’s IP holder 5th Planet Games, the innovative studio has been able to introduce the timeless character to the growing crash-game vertical.

Featuring the same mechanics as the company’s top-performing title AstroBoomers: To the Moon!, the new title promises an engrossing casino experience.

Enhancing the studio’s collection of immersive non-traditional titles, Hugo: Up & Away allows FunFair Games to meet its ambitions of developing a new genre of games and attracting the next generation of gamblers.

Mark McGinley, CEO of FunFair Games, said: Hugo: Up & Away has the potential to be one of our most popular releases, with the Scandinavian franchise having gained a broad following thanks to a consistent flow of gaming and cinematic adaptations since the 90s.

“We’re delighted with the final product and have to thank 5th Planet Games for its support throughout the development process. We can’t wait for players to enjoy this vibrant title that combines elements from the original game show and harmonises it with the thrilling crash game elements.”

Mark Stanger, CEO of 5th Planet Games, added: “We are delighted to bring Hugo into a completely new and exciting vertical in the real money gaming space together with FunFair Games. With a crash scene being the focal point of the original TV show, we have found the perfect match in FunFair Games with their expertise in creating engaging crash-style content, and we couldn’t be happier with the result.

“Hugo remains an extremely popular character in countries around the world and offering a modern twist of the original story was an opportunity we could not turn down; we look forward to introducing the game to fans old and new.”

SuperGaming and Google Cloud Collaborate to Empower Game Developers with a SuperPlatform

Published

Leading Indian game developer SuperGaming has chosen Google
Cloud to bring its best-in-class live-ops engine, SuperPlatform, to game developers the world
over. This will empower game developers to make better games with battle-tested cloud
infrastructure that currently powers all of SuperGaming’s efforts. This includes PAC-MAN, which
has more than one billion downloads across all storefronts, and its multiplayer shooter
MaskGun, which has more than 65 million players.

SuperPlatform will run on Google Cloud and will enable game developers to manage live ops,
matchmaking, player progression, player data, analytics, monetization systems, server scaling,
sales, and merchandising. It also integrates with popular game development platforms.

“The SuperPlatform is at the core of what makes our games tick,” says Roby John, CEO and
co-founder, SuperGaming. “It’s been made by game developers, for game developers, and after
years of iteration, finesse, and supporting some marquee games like PAC-MAN, we felt it’s the
right time to share it with more game developers. Google Cloud’s reach, technical expertise, and
best-in-class infrastructure made it an obvious choice as our partner to bring this to market.”

SuperPlatform is a SaaS (software as a service) and will be an ISV (independent software
vendor) running on Google Cloud, which provides secure, scalable, and sustainable
infrastructure that will enable more game developers to access SuperPlatform at scale.

“Gaming is a big focus for Google Cloud. We have scaled our global investments in this space
and are excited about the response we are getting from the market. ” says Bikram Singh Bedi,
managing director, Google Cloud India. “Advancements like the SuperPlatform are welcome
additions to an ever-evolving ecosystem. With Google Cloud’s infrastructure that enables
developers to build at scale and SuperGaming’s pedigree in gaming, we can really drive impact
and innovation and see more games come out of India.”

“By working closely with Google Cloud engineers and SDKs, a lot of our initial friction was
eased,” says Navneet Singh Waraich, chief technology officer and co-founder, SuperGaming.
“One key for us and our SuperPlatform customers is choice, and the ability to migrate our entire
orchestration as needed for cost-effectiveness without disrupting the game client or server
integrations on the frontend. This was a major plus for choosing to build our current stack on
Google Cloud.”

In addition to this, upcoming SuperGaming titles such as Indo-Futuristic battle royale, Indus and
Tower Conquest Metaverse Edition will also run on Google Cloud.
