Shacknews E5 - Blooming Business: Casino asks you to become the ultimate casino manager

Paul Blachere talks with Shacknews about Blooming Business: Casino and game development.


Tycoon and city management games are everywhere these days to the point where it takes a lot to stand out in the genre. And yet, Paul Blachère and the team at Homo Ludens have done just that with Blooming Business: Casino. As part of Shacknews E5 2021, we got to talk shop with Blachère and discuss what goes into creating a game like Blooming Business: Casino and the environment surrounding game development. Please, take a look at the interview below!

In Blooming Business: Casino, players take on the role of a casino manager as they design and build their own casino. The aesthetic is that of the 1950s, when the likes of Las Vegas started to really rise, but there’s something different here, your clientele are all animals! It’ll be up to you to decide what type of casino manager you are and how you handle the drama that inevitably crops up.

Beyond the game, Blachère also dived into the philosophy and practices behind game development. The team strives to maintain a healthy work-life balance with the goal to eliminate the crunch culture that plagues the industry.

Head over to the Blooming Business: Casino Steam page and try out the demo, and then add it to your wishlist!

      Playing these kinds of games is great entertainment great experience, I haven’t heard anything about Blooming Business: Casino before, but I’ll definitely try it sometime in my free time, thanks for the recommendation!
      I think that beginners should gain gaming experience in gambling in such variants.
      And for more experienced and professionals, I recommend a proven service where you can read a recent review about online casino with real money in New Zealand in 2022, among which I prefer to make a choice, because I trust these experts who create such materials containing all the key information about such games, so go ahead and find out more. Good luck everyone!

        I haven't heard anything about Blooming Business: Casino either. But after reading the article I will definitely play it. In the meantime, I play slot machines that I found on this site . Why do they ask you? The answer is simple, because this review was compiled by former gamblers who have extensive experience in this, so you can be sure that the options they offered are trustworthy.

        Real Gambling, It's only on the Woo Casino website. I love to play with a live dealer, and I've been looking for a long time for good casinos for live play. And so, I found this review at Woo. And absolutely right that I ended up reading this review and went to play and was convinced that Woo is the best live casino in Australia.
