TESTIMONIALS

Pokémon Scores a Touchdown

“It’s been 20 years for Pokemon, and about 18-19 for me, and that’s how I got involved with it…Pokemon meant a lot to me as a kid…It’s one of those things that transcends race, it transcends gender, and age. Even at Stanford, there were people that played it.”

 

-Richard Sherman, Cornerback, Seattle Seahawks

We Built This City

“I plan on playing Cities: Skylines at length…We haven’t had a city building series in forever and a lot of people want to see another one and I want to do another one. And why not do it with this game, because so far, it is fantastic. I really, really do like it.”

 

-Sips, YouTuber, Yogscast Team

Show Stopper Virtual Reality

“Survios’ First-Person Shooter Shows How Addictive VR Will Be”

-Josh Constine, Editor-at-Large, TechCrunch

E3 Inaugural PC Gaming Show

“No E3 event is perfect in its first iteration, and I would like to see another PC Gaming Show at E3 2016. Make it a little shorter and a little more unpredictable, and it won’t be hard to see why PCs, though expensive, are still the most versatile and high-fidelity way to game.”

-Marshall Honorof, Tech Reporter, Tom’s Guide

Introducing the Star Trek Tricorder

“TriplePoint PR is a wonderful firm to work with. They provide professional services and we love the commitment and creativity the firm offers. All requests are met quickly and effectively and it’s been a great pleasure working together!”

 

 

-Dror Sharon, CEO, Consumer Physics

Flying Atop a Virtual Pegasus

“As usual, donning a headset plants you in a 360-degree virtual environment. But instead of a gamepad or motion controller, the VirZoom powers your movement through pedaling. Pedal harder on the bike, and you’ll move faster through a game. Think of it as SoulCycle for the couch-loving gamer.”

 

-Nick Statt, Reporter, The Verge

Taking Temple Run Farther

“TriplePoint does a fantastic job with our PR and Marketing, and lets us focus on what we do best, making great games.”

 

-Keith Shepherd, Co-Founder, Imangi Studios

The Smart Pen is the Mightiest of All

“The team at TriplePoint helped drive a tremendous launch for our Livescribe 3 smartpen, delivering top-tier stories on a regular basis, doubling the number of impressions from the previous year and providing strong strategic counsel on a regular basis. The amazing PR results helped drive our best product launch ever, and have continued well beyond the initial introduction to help us drive a more efficient overall marketing mix.”

 

-Gilles Bouchard, Chairman and CEO, Livescribe

Providing a Glimpse into Future Tech

“Meet The USC Journalism Professor Leading A Course On Google Glass- ‘It’s the most mature wearable platform that’s out there,’ says USC journalism professor Robert Hernandez. ‘And we need to be proactive and figure it out.'”

 

-Chris Gayomali, Staff Writer, Fast Company

Tearing Down the Physical Walls of Supply Chain Management

“We did a lot together! I continue to believe our launch and follow on announcements were a great success and we couldn’t have done it without TriplePoint PR.”

-Tyler A. Lopez-Ziemann, Head of Growth, Elementum

Showcasing Asian App Market Opportunity

“Essentially acting as our extended team, TriplePoint helped CocoaChina successfully establish its thought leadership position about China within the North American mobile gaming industry. TriplePoint’s great reach to press, professional approach of handling campaigns, as well as their understanding and sensitivity to culture differences, makes their service an invaluable tool to CocoaChina’s overseas operation.”

 

-Lei Zhang, General Manager, North America, Chukong Technologies

A Match for All Eternity

“Obsidian will remain in creative control of Pillars of Eternity, while Paradox will focus on marketing, public relations and fulfillment of Kickstarter rewards for the title.”

-Lou Kesten, Video Game Reviewer, Associated Press
