| "The Internet has been the most fundamental change during my lifetime and for hundreds of years."
- Rupert Murdoch, media mogul
The continuing growth in the web's evolution into a breeding ground for media-rich, interactive content presents a fertile environment for advergames, some of which are now very impressive in terms of graphics and gameplay. Web and mobile devices are increasingly becoming an entertainment hub, and advertising needs to adapt to reflect this - static banner ads are not enough. At the end of the day, consumers want content, not adverts.
Online advertising needs to keep pace to how consumers use the internet and the devices they use to display the content. Content has become increasingly rich and interactive. More and more users want to control and share their online experiences, and advergaming plays well to this, particularly with the possibility of multiplayer games. It is becoming apparent that advergaming should be a part of any future advertising strategy.
The increase in the casual gamer demographic presents an ideal target market for advergaming, and those ISPs/portal providers with dedicated games channels should be actively looking into this area. However, it's important to remember that advergaming is all about engagement - in other words, attracting and keeping customers' attention.
The key engagement is to ensure the gaming content is of a high quality - consumers must not only enjoy playing an advergame, but voluntarily come back to it and actively recommend it to their friends and/or challenge their friends to beat their score via social media.

Left Brain Games, Inc. has collaborated with many agencies to produce healthcare branded products. We have built games that have filled booths at medical conferences that utilize the Wii controller or balance board.
We designed and programmed virtual worlds that included character creation and development that teaches children about skin care and behaviors. The virtual worlds included parental controls where they can limit the amount of time that children can play daily, give rewards for good behavior and control which games their children can play and with whom their children have contact.
We also developed a mobile simulation application that teaches how to use new equipment, so that the medical equipment operator can experience what they will be seeing before they actually use the new equipment on a patient.
|" It is clear that retailers need to move beyond just 'advertising' and a consumer-centric measure of engagement-based, integrated media, and cross-media consumption can facilitate that shift."

Why are companies marketing their products using Advergaming?
| "Advergaming is the practice of using games, particularly computer games, to advertise or promote a product, organization or viewpoint."
Advergaming normally falls into one of two categories. In the first, a company provides interactive games on its web site in the hope that potential customers will be drawn to the game and spend more time on the web site. Second, to simply become more product aware. The games themselves usually feature the company's products prominently.
The marketplace for Advergaming has been expanding rapidly and has exploded with the use of mobile devices.
Using games to inform a target audience has many benefits. First, the games themselves are designed to attract the attention of the target demographic. The marketing message becomes secondary to the fun factor. Much like commercials on TV, an online player can accept a commercial message in exchange for an engaging experience, as long as the advertisement does not overwhelm the game. Marketing your product in this manner will leave the player with a positive impression of your product as well as your company. Many companies know that just making the world aware of your product is difficult enough, but leaving them with a good feeling is even more valuable.
Attracting potential customers to your web site is difficult. Making your message rise above the static of the internet will take more than glorified whack-a-mole. It takes experience. An auto insurance company can profit from a game that teaches about their low rates with a bumper car simulation. A microbrew company can advertise their entire product line with Texas Holdem, slot machines, or bottle cap games. Marketing campaigns that tie your products to a fun experience are the newest and most powerful tool available in advertising.
Left Brain Games, Inc. has been producing interactive entertainment for 10+ years. Our staff has a combined multimedia experience of 50 years developing games and educational materials.
We can start with an existing advertising campaign and create games that enhance your message. We can help a client to develop a new promotional campaign. We can rework an existing game with your product information in a cost effective manner.
| "Every advertising campaign, irrespective of the size of the company, hinges on appealing to individuals. Why is this emphasis not shared when it comes to approaching online customers?"
- Malcolm Duckett, VP, Marketing and Operations, Speed-Trap
