We explained our concentric diversification strategy, how’s skills and experiences can be very useful for game development, why to develop multiplatform production assets, how the created know-how is a competitive advantage in developing game-based marketing instruments (e.g. advergames and social games) and gamification systems for’s clients.

Unfortunately, the interview is available only in Italian…but maybe google translator could help you.
