Gamera Game approached us to raise awareness of its massive selection of games in Gamera’s Tokyo Game Show 2021 showcase
Tokyo Game Show is one of the largest video game exhibitions in the world and a major calendar event for gamers. Chinese publisher Gamera Game wanted our help to drive excitement for its TGS 2021 showcase. With a massive selection of over 20 games included in the showcase, we had to ensure the key facts for each individual title were conveyed in the initial announcement release. All while being mindful that too much information on such a number of games could appear overwhelming, and messy, to journalists and content creators.
With this many games included in Gamera Game’s showcase, we utilised our knowledge of current trends in gaming to handpick a selection of key titles that could be used for feature pitching. Plus, to ensure nothing from the showcase was missed, any pitches for specific titles were linked back to the full showcase announcement and referenced the other titles that may be of interest to whomever we were messaging.
