Brands and the Immersive Era

Discover how games are transforming advertising, creating immersive and connective experiences. Explore 'advergames' and see how the future of brands and advertising is being shaped through interactive games.

The gaming industry is constantly evolving, and as the digital world expands, brands are finding creative new ways to connect with their target audience. Games, with their unique ability to engage consumers, are emerging as a powerful tool to deepen brand-consumer relationships. The future of gaming is shaping the world of brands and their advertising strategies, offering immersive experiences that go beyond traditional advertising.

With new technologies advancing daily, games have become an innovative advertising platform, generating interactivity and connective experiences—a potential already realized by some brands. These companies have entered into strategic partnerships to create exclusive games, known as "advergames," designed to promote products and services in a fun and engaging way. This approach offers the opportunity to engage consumers uniquely, moving beyond simply designing and displaying common advertisements.

One of the main advantages of games as an advertising tool is the ability to create personalized, immersive experiences. By offering consumers this new mode of interaction, brands can strengthen their connection with their audience and integrate products and services into their daily lives in an unusual and fun way. This allows for testing, exploration, and playful interactions that would not be possible in the real world. For example, a car manufacturer might create an advergame that allows players to virtually customize and test cars, providing a unique shopping experience.

A practical example of this concept's success was demonstrated through a partnership between Khipo and a partner agency for Engov After at Rock in Rio 2022. This event attracts thousands of people each edition, and major brands compete for activation spaces. Among the various spaces and available shows, those that deliver unique experiences stand out and attract visitors. Engov After leveraged Khipo's technological expertise to build part of its Gaming Arena at the festival, creating an interactive dance game for the brand. The experience was developed and built from scratch, inspired by classic arcade dance games. From software development to machinery production, the result was outstanding, and both the brand and its customers were delighted, as was Khipo.

The future of gaming in the world of brands and advertising is exciting and full of possibilities. As consumers seek increasingly immersive experiences, companies have the opportunity to create meaningful connections through advergames. With technological advances, we can expect even more personalized experiences, redefining the way brands interact with their target audiences. The future promises a creative symbiosis, and Khipo, with its many success stories, is the right choice to provide a new dimension in building experiences between your company and your customers.
