Super Soccer Blast, the popular soccer game that musters up an average of 1.5 hours of playtime per gamer per day, will now add a whole new dimension to their super-fast and dynamic arcade-gameplay on PC and console: authentic brand advertisements powered by Anzu.io.
With a clear goal of creating fun and engaging games without the constraints of simulating reality, Super Soccer Blast brings together accessible controls, smart design, and ease of play like over-the-top classic soccer games. With a worldwide reach, Unfinished Pixel’s Super Soccer Blast aims to become the benchmark of arcade indie sports games. The game will serve as the perfect backdrop for brand ads, which will appear exactly as they do in real-life soccer games – on billboards, banners, and other natural placements. The players, heavily focused in the USA and across Europe, will benefit from the heightened realism blended in-game ads provide. Unfinished Pixel will join Anzu’s other gaming partners, including Toplitz Productions, Vivid Games, APB Reloaded, and Zula, who are adding a new, sustainable, and non-disruptive income stream via Anzu’s revolutionary in-game advertising technology.
Of the partnership, CEO of Unfinished Pixel Marcos Torrecillas Gallardo said,
“We’re thrilled to partner with Anzu to make Super Soccer Blast more realistic through real-life brand ads. Soccer is a game that naturally features ads across the field, and our players want the most authentic experience. Anzu’s technology gives them that. And the fact that we can add a new monetization stream that doesn’t harm the user experience – but actually enhances it – makes the partnership that much more valuable!’
Anzu, a company positioned at the center of gaming and advertising, is creating new industry standards on the heels of their recent distinction as the first and only in-game ad company to receive an ISO 27001 certificate, which gives developers and advertisers confidence that user data is handled properly. Other partnerships, which provide confidence to advertisers and in turn translate to more revenues for game developers, include Anzu’s collaboration with fraud-detection solution Forensiq, the first-ever ad verification solution in partnership with CHEQ, and unprecedented campaign effectiveness measurement together with Nielsen Connectivity. Anzu is the first in-game advertising platform to bring these trusted AdTech solutions to in-game campaigns.
Anzu VP Games, Alex Yerukhimovich, commented,
“We are thrilled to partner with Unfinished Pixel to bring our amazing ad technology into their wildly popular Super Soccer Blast game! It’s always fun to work with partners who share your vision. In this case, it’s more than fun–it’s truly synergistic. Unfinished Pixel is a game studio dedicated to creating unparalleled experiences for their players, and bringing real-life brand ads into the soccer stadium is the perfect way to complement their fantastic graphic interface and gaming experience. We look forward to bringing new revenue to this innovative studio while giving global brands access to their dedicated players in a totally new, non-disruptive way.”
