Leaping to Our New Office

Published on August 3, 2016

It’s been quite a month at Leap Gaming. While we continue to work hard to develop new 3D virtual reality games that are ultra-realistic, responsive, and immersive. We also moved our offices!

Our new space in the heart of Tel Aviv is the perfect inspiration for our games. It’s an open space concept giving us an even more collaborative work environment.

During the move we were reminded of these four tips that made our move easy & fun: 

1. Label all of your boxes with what’s inside and which room the box needs to go to when you’re packing – make sure you make your computers accessible.

2. Share the moving schedule with your staff using a shared Calendar. Planning your move and keeping your staff in the loop means less work will be interrupted.

3. Change your address at least 2 weeks before you move. You don’t want to miss any deliveries.

4. Coffee, coffee, & more coffee Read more

Multi-platform gaming is the future!

Published on July 14, 2016

multi-platform

In our increasingly connected world it’s an obvious progression for ultra-realistic games to now be playable on any device. The development of multi-platform (or cross-platform) gaming is an exciting and new adventure for the virtual sports gambling and casinos field as it gives games providers and their users the chance to experience gaming like never before.  Saying this, there isn’t a “one design fits-all” solution so in order to cater to all platforms, one needs to invest heavily in customized design and to adapt your client to each screen size and every processing power in order to provide an immersive and smooth experience. Your client will not settle for anything less. 

Ask any gaming operator you come across and they will all tell you that integration is one of the most painful processes they need to undergo in order to achieve a certain style of content that they like. We’ve come across many examples of applications where integration was a show stopper. Whether  integration was perceived as too complicated or it had commenced and became so cumbersome that one (or both) parties lost momentum that it never came to fruition, you always have to think about deployment and how to seamlessly scale up your distribution and mark your footprint in a way that  will delight your customers and shorten the time to market for all parties involved. This is the strategic focus for Leap Gaming and it has had extensive implications on product development and go to market approach.

The future of gaming is here! It’s now possible to engage in virtual sports and casino games on the go. Leap Gaming’s unique technology ensures users can seamlessly and continuously transition their gaming experience from one platform to another. Leap Gaming is taking this time as an opportunity to develop virtual games with immersive visuals and responsive design that deliver state-of-the-art experiences for users.  

Leap’s multi-platform games blend real-life high resolution footage with motion captured data. It’s done so fast that visual content stays fresh thereby creating a consistently ultra-realistic gaming experience. What’s more exciting is that this unique experience is now possible on multiple platforms without reducing the quality or realism of the game play.  

As the lines between virtual and reality continue to blur, multi-platform games are bridging the gap between real sports gambling and virtual gaming. The latter now being easily accessible, immersive, and ultra-realistic. As users are introduced to increasingly more sophisticated games, gaming providers are tasked with becoming more innovative. Leap Gaming is committed to continuing to develop customize-able, responsive, cross-platform games that users will continue to consume now and well into the future.
