U.K.-based slots developer Spike Games is creating a new title based on the classic Alice Cooper song "School's Out" under a new licensing deal.When asked about the inspiration for this song, Cooper once said, "What's the greatest three minutes of your life? The last three minutes of the last day of school when you're sitting there and it's like a slow fuse burning." Bringing one of the best feelings of anticipation to a slot format is why Spike Games has inked this deal. In Britain, the song went to No. 1 on the U.K. singles chart for three weeks in August 1972. Rob Anderson, founder of Spike Games, said: "I love everything about this song. "Alice Cooper is a huge deal worldwide. He's as popular in China as he is in his hometown. "What attracted us most was how visually stunning Alice Cooper is. Everyone instantly knows the band when they see the famous one of a kind Alice Cooper makeup. "'School's Out', as a song, has a timeless chorus and guitar riffs known by everyone young and old." Cooper's merchandiser and licensing agent Global Merchandising Services, said: "We love the team at Spike Games and their whole approach to the Alice Cooper brand. Rob's knowledge and experience in slot game design stretches back 25 years and the quality of Spike Games product speaks for itself." Spike Games has an existing library of proven slots aimed at the U.K. and international markets. This new must-have game will be available for mobile, tablet and PC in HTML5 hosted on the SpikeRGS and is available for license and distribution Q1 2016.
