Grandyo opens a new channel to connect with them in an innovative, easy and fun way. You decide the level of reach, engagement, quality, and brand control.

We also believe that player insight and skills can form an essential part of successful game development and promotion in the future.

» Games: the different entertainment channel

Gamers' voices:
“its all about the balancing, i would say. if the game designer or the advert company can find the bottom line of gamers' toleration, that all they have to do is to make sure they don’t cross that line, and everything else is fine.”

“If you can think of it (the game), you can make it (user-generated content) and let the world play with it.“
