The Advergame’s Concept
GAMECITY is a meta-game conceived to enhance at most the NickTV.it’s brand, exploiting all Nickelodeon’s properties (like Spongebob, Avatar, The Penguins of Madagascar, Fairly Oddparents an so on).
The main GAMECITY’s marketing objectives are:
- to increase the number of NickTV.it’s heavy-users
- to increase the average number of accesses for user into NickTV.it
- to increase the number of NickTV.it’s users
- to increase NickTV.it’s pageview
- to facilitate Nickelodeon’s social media marketing strategies and the viral communication on the social networks
- to increase NickTV.it’s awareness and image and its capability of loyalizing
- to allow complex product placements and in-game advertising, in order to create new monetization channels
GAMECITY has been conceived to create a social and engaging game-experience.
NickTV.it’s users will dress the part of a superhero and will be called to patrol GAMECITY’s streets and perform continuous missions; moreover, players will be able ti match each others and deeply customize their avatars.
Each GAMECITY’s district is owned by a Nickelodeon’s properties or by an advertising brand that will insert into GAMECITY through the “product placement” marketing tool.
Entering into the various districts, users will access to a large number of games. Playing and performing thair missions, the superheroes will increase their experiece, and so a lot of virtual items, awards and prizes will be unlocked.
Bundled with GAMECITY, there will be a Facebook social-game: every player will have a super-vehicle, deeply customizable through some “equipping cards”. Thanks to thair super-vehicle, superheroes can determine who is the most powerful.
