Where Can You Use Branded Games?
Online Game Development
The phrase “content is king” is being used now more than ever when it comes to promoting websites and games are the undisputed king of content.
Custom branded online games can be a great way to generate traffic to a website, keep visitors there for longer and encourage return visits. Being the ultimate in link-bait they can provide excellent SEO and social media benefits too. Plus, if you’ve been looking for that hook for a press release, to ultimately get bloggers and the media writing about your business or website, a custom branded online game may just be it.
Mobile Game Development
Mobile is undoubtedly the biggest growth area in gaming in recent years, smartphones and tablets increasingly being used for casual gaming on the go. We can help your business stand out from the crowd, whilst harnessing this ever expanding audience with a branded mobile game specifically designed for smartphones and tablets.
We create branded games for use on mobile devices either as apps, for deployment on apps stores or mobile compatible web based games, for direct inclusion on your website, using HTML5.
Facebook Game Development
With the rise of social gaming on Facebook and businesses increasingly using social media as a primary communication channel, branded Facebook games can be great addition to your existing social media efforts. Branded Facebook games can be effective in increasing activity on your business Facebook page, as well as encouraging ‘likes’ and increasing your message reach. The Facebook games we produce utilise the social/viral elements of the Facebook platform for increased spread.
Exhibition Stand/Interactive Kiosk Game Development
Looking for something really engaging to draw people to your exhibition stand? A custom branded video game may just be the attraction you need to get people visiting and talking about your stand.
The Tech We Use to Create Branded Games
HTML5 Game Development
HTML5 allows games to be played in the web browser that are compatible with a full range of modern devices from smartphones and tablets to desktop PCs with a modern browser. If you’re interested in custom web based games and you need mobile device compatibility, then HTML5 is the way to go.
Adobe Air/Flash Game Development
Flash is still the most cost effective way to create small scale 2D games in a relatively short timeframe. It’s come a long way since it’s humble beginnings as a web based platform. With the introduction of Adobe AIR, it’s now possible to produce branded Flash based games for deployment across a variety of platforms, as well as in the web browser on desktop computers, including as mobile apps on smartphones and tablets and as stand-alone games on desktop PCs.
