But, what are advergames? Advergaming is a type of advertising technique where casual games are used to advertise products or services, improving brand awareness and engagement. The key word here is motion graphics.

These types of games are typically free and distributed online, and since they are developed as part of an advertising campaign the protagonist will always be the brand, company, service, or product.

Is important to keep in mind that the presence of the brand constitutes the core of the game, it’s not just ads within the game itself, those are called banners or display advertising.

If you’re still not convinced to apply this marketing strategy to your brand because you think that games are mainly appealing to young males, well let us tell you that it’s a myth that has been debunked. A case study from 2021 revealed that any type of demographic can be interested in gaming as long as research and planning have gone to the campaign. So, the secret is to integrate your brand into the game experience.
