“Game Shakers,” a show about an awesome gaming company run by teenagers, boasts the same kind of funky flair we’ve seen on the sets of “iCarly” and “Sam & Cat.” These colorful, highly detailed sets have become the trademark of Dan Schneider-created shows, thanks to the creative mind of Art DirectorHarry Matheuand his incredible team.
Let’s take a closer look at the world of “Game Shakers”!
The Donut Pit
The most impressive set on “Game Shakers” is definitely the kids’ enormous game workshop. Cuz first off, it has a donut pit.
Nickelodeon has aninteractive set tour that lets you explore the workshop’s finer points, like its trampoline, crazy word wall, fully-stocked kitchen, and very elegant stuffed monkey on a toilet. Those cozy donuts, though. Mmmmm.
As Kenzie says, “Donut bother us as we’re napping.” Can’t argue with that — if you want a good game, the developers need their rest!
On-Point Reproduction of NYC’s Subway
The reproduction of NYC’s subway cars and stops is so on-point, you’d almost think it was shot there. From the subway ads to the “courtesy counts” campaign, aged platforms and city maps, it’s incredible how well the set designers capture NYC’s underground.
Fun fact: The set designers actually work with the MTA to get all of the elements just right. This teamwork totally paid off. Take a look for yourself! And this shot is even more impressive, from the peeling paint to the yellow lines:
It just goes to show that the magic of sets is not just in what can be imaginatively created, but what can be expertly recreated.
Double G’s furry, fancy office
Double G’s office is exactly what we’d hope for a crazy-famous hip hop artist. The signature Double G logo is emblazoned in gold wherever you turn, while the furniture is adorned with fancy faux furs of all types. And that throne! Wow.
We’re also loving the New York City skyline in the background. It adds some real Manhattan flavor to a set that’s already just about as flavorful as they come!
“Game Shakers” is an American live-action sitcom, created by Dan Schneider, currently airing on Nickelodeon. The series stars Cree Cicchino and Madisyn Shipman as teens that start a multimillion dollar gaming company and take on a rap superstar, played by Kel Mitchell, as their business partner. The series is produced by Dan Schneider, an American actor, TV and film actor, and producer.
One thing we love about Dan Schneider TV shows is that many of them share the same hilarious, colorful universe. For fans, this means references galore, recurring characters, and — best of all — the occasional crossover between series! Fans of the hit “iCarly” left the series fulfilled in most ways, but not without questions. One lingering mystery is whether Freddie, played by Nathan Kress, liked Carly or Sam better romantically. Apparently, the kids on “Game Shakers” have the same burning question. While most of us can only speculate, Babe, Kenzie and the gang are in a unique position to try and find out!
On September 17th, Game Shakers producer and creator Dan Schneider tweeted out a picture that got the entire fandom excited.
On September 10, Nathan Kress himself sent out a cryptic tweet about an “iCarly” related surprise! Now fans know a little bit more about what’s in store, though we can assure you there are plenty of surprises to come. So, what’s the deal? We can’t spoil too much, but we can say that the Game Shakers — eager to solve this love triangle — find out that Freddie is in New York City and decide to visit his hotel for some light stalking. Antics ensue, and they end up breaking into his room.
If you thought an appearance by Nathan Kress was awesome, guess what? This episode is also directed by Nathan, who is involved behind-the-scenes on “Game Shakers” as well as “Henry Danger.” With Nathan at the helm, you can be sure Dan Schneider’s newest hits share the humor and heart we all loved in “iCarly.”
So, is the question answered? Who does Freddie like more? On “iCarly” he dated both girls and shared kisses with each at least seven times. Both girls said they loved him and had a last kiss in the elevator before breaking up in the Shay residence. And though the finale hinted at a future for Carly and Freddie, AKA “Creddie”, Nathan’s appearance on “Sam & Cat” made clear that “Seddie” was also a possibility. We don’t want to spoil anything, so it’s probably better to watch the “Game Shakers” episode for yourself when it airs later this season. Whether or not this Nickelodeon love triangle is ever really solved, we don’t think you’ll be disappointed with this awesome collaboration.
