Raptor PR, a leading b2b communications agency for video games, web3 gaming, and media brands, today announces three new business wins. These include Kinetix, a metaverse platform for user-generated 3D animation; Sandsoft, a leading MENA-based mobile games developer, publisher and investor powered by AAA games industry talent; and Bidstack Group PLC, the most well funded in-game advertising company in the world.
Kinetix was named as one of France’s hottest startups by Wired in October 2022, which was preceded by a $11M USD seed funding raise earlier in the year. Kinetix works with leading web2 and web3 metaverse platforms like Roblox, Decentraland and The Sandbox to help creators make and share 3D content. Sandsoft Games is at the epicentre of the fastest growing gaming market: MENA. In October 2022 it announced its flagship Riyadh studio, which will house international games industry talent from the likes of Electronic Arts, King, and Rovio, as well as burgeoning local talent. London-headquartered public company Bidstack recently became the best funded in-game advertising brand with a total of $42M USD raised, and announced a series of major hires in the key US market.
For each of its new client wins, Raptor PR is engineering and deploying fully integrated global communications strategies, designed to cut through highly competitive markets. Across its brief history, Raptor PR has honed its data-driven communications consultancy, delivering highly creative earned, owned and paid campaigns across the globe.
Rana Rahman, Founder and Managing Director, Raptor PR, commented:“Our latest trio of retained clients perfectly illustrates the niche Raptor has carved for itself at the bleeding edge of emergent technology. We’re proud to be defining the narratives for in-game advertising, web3 gaming tech, and AAA-powered mobile game development in MENA. Our new clients represent the best of their respective industries, and are poised to go stratospheric over the next few years.”
Arthur Jacq, Head of Marketing and Communications of Kinetix, commented:“The raptors have a widespread reputation for high impact communications. Their work for brands like Dubit, Admix and Coda Labs, plus their signature work for industry-defining campaigns such as the Global Web3 Gamer Study, have cemented their reputation as market leaders for emergent technologies such as web3.”
Ratko Bozovic, Head of Marketing of Sandsoft Games, commented:“As a global company, Sandsoft required an agency with knowledge of multiple markets and business areas. After a lengthy search, we selected Raptor PR to deliver our global message to market. They came highly recommended, and they have already proven themselves to be invaluable advisors, with a genuine passion and love of the games industry.”
James Draper, Founder and CEO of Bidstack, commented:“Raptor PR has helped to define the narrative of the in-game advertising sector for nearly two years now, so deciding to work with Raptor PR was a no-brainer. Rana Rahman, Thomas Huxter, and the rest of team Raptor have a demonstrable track record of securing great results within the in-game advertising space, and they are ideally positioned to help take our brand to new audiences globally.”
Raptor PR was founded in 2019 by Rana Rahman following two decades as a technology PR consultant working on brands such as Sony PlayStation, Rovio, Philips, Fujifilm and AppLovin. The agency came out of stealth in January 2021 with flagship client Admix (now LandVault), and has since worked with more than twenty brands including Dubit, The Tiny Digital Factory, Tenjin, and Coda Labs
