Branded games for brand awareness and activation campaigns.
Choose from over 500 game templates.
Change the game graphics to fit your marketing objectives.
Branded games are games which contain an advertisement in some way, shape or form. They allow brands to engage the consumer in a meaningful way.
Consumers are increasingly having very short attention spans. How do we engage them, when there's so much content out there? Delivering small, lightweight and highly engaging experiences make the most sense, given the short time frames available to ride the consumer trend waves.
With the explosive growth of mobile devices, branded games are every marketer's dream. Combined with our in-house HTML5 technology, branded games can be developed very quickly and distributed to consumers instantly, across smartphones, tablets and desktop computers.
A branded game is an essential tool for every online marketing campaign. Whether your goal is brand awareness, audience building, lead generation, or customer loyalty, having an interactive game will place your brand at the center of conversation.
Designed with a responsive mindset, a branded game loads seamlessly on your smartphone browser, tablet browser, or desktop browser. The games deployed are typically short, fun and highly engaging.
The branded games are also typically run on a microsite (landing page), which makes it easily sharable via social media, email campaigns, chatrooms, conferencing software, and literally any other web-based medium.
As part of a corporate event for executives of Intel, we built a memory match game. The game was deployed as a warm-up event for participants, to get them excited before the actual event begins. Players attempt to match Intel branded product cards in the least amount of moves to generate the highest score.
In order to save development cost and lower time-to-market, we reskinned our existing Memory Match game engine. We changed the graphics of the game, while maintaining the core gameplay experience. Hence, we were able to pass along cost savings of up to 80% to the client, compared to if the game was built from scratch.
The game also comes integrated with our cloud leaderboard system, which allows users to register, play and rank competitively with other participants at the event. The event organizer receives access to a backend CMS from which they are able to view, manage and export the leaderboard data into Excel. They're also able to reset the leaderboard for multiple groups of participants on the same day.
At the end of the experience, the event organizer announces the top 10 winners along with corporate branded gifts.
We built a personality quiz game for Toyota as part of an activation campaign. Booth visitors step up to an iPad to answer a series of questions about their lifestyle, hobbies, aspirations and spending behaviors. At the end of the game, we recommended a Toyota model that suits their profile.
Once the game experience is over, the booth representative approaches the prospect to start a conversation and schedule a test drive.
We collaborated with a large optical retail group in Asia to create an exciting game for their rewards programme. Using our 3D game Drift Boss, we reskinned the car models, the roads, the backgrounds and the game title. We then replaced the background music with a more contemporary hip-hop track, to cater to a younger audience.
Players control a variety of branded drift cars from eyewear brands such as Acuvue, Freshkon, Hoya, Bausch and Lomb, and Alcon. Top players get to convert their leaderboard points into actual reward programme points, giving them massive value for their next purchase and building brand loyalty.
We worked with an international pizza brand to promote a "Play and Win" campaign.
The campaign featured our game Pepperoni Gone Wild, which was fully reskinned into a different look and feel for the client. The game was deployed on a microsite and heavily promoted via social media.
In order to qualify for the leaderboards, players purchase pizza products and upload the receipt for verification. As a result, the campaign generated more sales, customer loyalty, and a whole lot of buzz.

We helped a client launch an automotive trivia history at a recent trade show event in the US.
On-site visitors answer a series of 20 highly specific automotive history questions. Questions range from the history of older vehicle models to new and emerging brands from the electric vehicle segment. Prizes are awared to players who answer at least 10 questions correctly.
To develop the game, we used our Trivia game engine, which we adapted to fit the client's objectives. The art direction resonated with history buffs. The questions were tough questions that not everyone had the answer to.
We worked on a corporate event where two teams from separate companies are brought together as part of a brand partnership.
The microsite game was equipped with a leaderboard to rank the players based on how many Pringles chips they were able to stack on the table. The top winners are given Xbox consoles as prizes.
For this project, we reskinned our game Stack The Pancake with our client brand logos, colors and products.
We recently launched a microsite game for Hula Hoops, a prominent snack brand in Europe.
We reskinned our game Hoop Star into a brand new look, with client-specific content aimed at promoting the brand attached to a basketball event.
The high scores are submitted to a leaderboard. Winners are selected post-event.

We worked with a US-centric tea brand to promote a series of games via a microsite.
The microsite game is designed with a carnival theme, to fit the client's campaign goals.
Players do a variety of fun things in the games, such as
We collaborated with a snack brand to promote the annual Six Nations championship, which is a huge event in the rugby world.
The microsite game is designed with lead gen in mind, requiring users to sign up with a name and email address.
The grand prize features tickets to travel to all six nations, all expenses paid. The winners are selected based on the top scores in our leaderboard.

Yes. We have a cloud based leaderboard solution, that we can implement into every game on MarketJS. The leaderboard can be shown within the game, or provided as a separate leaderboard link that you can plug into specific sections of the event.
Rank users based on their high score achievement. There's also the ability to reset the leaderboard at pre-determined times.
The data collected will be available via our backend CMS. Clients get access to view and export the data into Excel format as well.

If you need us to submit data directly to your own CRM systems (eg: Marketo, Responsys, Eloqua, Mailchimp, Constant Contact), we can do it as well.
Our clients typically give out coupons, vouchers or gift codes to increase consumer loyalty. These codes are typically awarded to random winners, or via the Top scorers in the leaderboards.
The organizer of the online event typically contacts the winners after the event is over.
Note, that rewards are optional. Not all games have to give out rewards. The game itself can be a form of reward.

We typically do not sell raw source code. We are a solutions-based company. Hence, we shall customize and deliver the finished product to you. MarketJS will typically host the game, and your company will plug in the link into your social media/EDM/event/page/virtual conference software/other web-based channels. If you need to self-host, we can work out a simple arrangement as well.
In some cases, where further development is needed on your side, we can discuss a source code licensing arrangement.
