What Does the YGS Masters Programme Offer?
The YGS Masters is Yggdrasil’s strategic initiative based on the need for platform where well-established partners with futuristic technology will offer their support to independent suppliers.
Yggdrasil announced the Programme on March 8th this year, explaining that it is a semi-open, invite-only platform where independent gaming studios will be able to develop titles for Yggdrasil. The games studios will have access to BOOST™ in-game promotional tools, which they can use to develop their own versions within their game clients. This also gives them the ability to run network campaigns.
