Meet the Sauna Vikings

Paf releases the new game Sauna Vikings. The game has been developed and designed by Paf Games Studio. The game will be available on all Paf gaming sites.

Paf has launched a new online game called Sauna Vikings. The new game has been entirely produced in-house by the Paf Games Studio. The game combines one of the most famous Nordic warriors, the Vikings with one of the most famous Nordic traditions, the sauna. The tough looking and humoristic characters makes the game stand out.

“In short, we wanted to make a game where the bonus game takes place in the Sauna. When we discussed in the team about what kind of characters we should have, then the Vikings were the strong favourite. That’s also how the game got its name – Sauna Vikings,” says Rene Katsev, Producer in Paf Games Studio.

The talented developers and designers in the Paf Games Studio team created the game. The game took some four to five months to complete, starting from the planning phase to the final launch. Around seven persons from the games studio were involved in the making of the game. 

“The number of persons needed for a new game all depends on the scope and special features needed. A smaller update of a game can be done much faster,” says Kim Syväluoma, Senior Game Programmer.

The Sauna Vikings game uses a grid based gaming function instead of the more common set-up with classic reels. Another nice feature is the character-specific animations in the game, making each Viking stand out. After months of work, the Sauna Vikings game is now live on many of Paf’s gaming sites.

“We usually celebrate every new game, with a lunch or dinner and sometimes an event depending on what fits in. For now, we are already working on the next new thing,” says Mika Lampi, Senior Game Programmer.
