Leveling up: Great games deliver great digital experiences

Strategic partnerships can help gaming companies scale and still focus on doing what they do best. Reaktor’s multi-talented teams help you keep the player community front and center.

Modern, successful games are masterpieces in more ways than one. They’re designed for the players, developed as holistic experiences, and scaled to digital perfection. From crafting joy to building unforgettable gaming moments, digital solutions must serve your community.

Reaktor has teamed up with the world’s largest gaming companies like Supercell and Rovio to help them focus on and succeed in what they do best: the games.

Highlights

  • Team up strategically to focus on what matters most: the game
  • Keep the players and the community front and center
  • Work with cutting-edge technology to win the competition
  • Design, build, and scale breakthrough digital products

Overview

Growing a good game to a successful one takes more than exceptional game design. Whether it’s switching from one device to another, purchasing the latest skin as a gift, or the seasonal campaign kick-off, games must deliver a seamless, lagless experience from start to finish. 

As the gaming industry has matured, so has the level of expectation for quality. The time players spend with games is on the rise. With tens of thousands of games to choose from in the billion-dollar global market, modern gamers know they can expect nothing less than the best. 

It’s all in the details. Confusing interface and bugs can demotivate players and lead to a game losing the player base. In some cases, just a wonky sign-up process before gameplay can lower the number of users by a third. Customer service is equally important: If a player needs to spend time troubleshooting, they’re not spending time playing. 

Reaktor has a proven track record in helping gaming companies rise above the competition, with expertise in cutting-edge software and technology built to scale, user-centered UI/UX design, and business strategy. Teaming up with Reaktor allows both the game studio and the gaming community to focus on the one thing that matters the most – the play.

“We approached Reaktor for the external technical expertise that we lacked and needed to develop Supercell ID. What we actually got was far more than that – people who execute on the technical front as well as contribute to driving the vision. With their help, we are delivering a product superior to what we originally had in mind.”

It’s dangerous to go alone

Leverage a multidisciplinary approach to ensure success

Growing in-house capabilities outside a company’s core expertise is a resource-heavy and risky effort. It’s often more sensible to band together and outsource. As both the gaming community’s aspirations and technical possibilities for games continue to expand, gaming companies must balance sustainable growth with great expectations and increasing demand.

Efficient digital services are built in layers, requiring a variety of multidisciplinary skills. Whether it’s delivering an advanced customer experience or increasing employee traction, working with a multi-talented team is the key to success. 

Reaktor’s co-creative approach helps gaming companies grow and scale. Our culture encourages knowledge sharing and enables us to gather all the necessary know-how around the same table. Teaming up with game studios and developers, we strive to find the bottlenecks where our technological, business, and branding expertise can increase end-user retention and satisfaction.
