GAME PROMOTER™ established in 2009 with the intent of servicing small- to medium-sized game developers with their business, public relations and marketing needs. Our goal is to help and assist you in getting your games successfully exposed to industry press and consumers worldwide. Our experienced team of professional marketers has worked in the industry for decades and have specialized in the business of selling, promoting and marketing of games. With a portfolio of more than 1.000 game developers from all continents and corners of the world, it is our continued commitment to offer an attractive and diverse selection of affordable services to our valued developer network and trusted partners in the industry.
The worldwide video game industry is poised to reach USD $90 billion by the end of 2015, thanks to the combined growth of PC, console, portable, and online video games. With such an impressive market, how do you stand out from the crowd? How do you get noticed? Who can help and where do you go? Game developers of today need an experienced partner they can rely on for guidance and support in a rapidly changing environment; an experienced and professional liaison with invaluable insight to how the industry works, offering honest advice and affordable services in a highly competitive climate. For the most part, game developers are fantastic at creating brilliant games, but more often than not lack the skills, insight, know-how and even the interest on how to promote, sell and market their titles. This is no surprise; after all, they're developers, not marketers or publishers.
"GAME PROMOTER™ quality of service has been outstanding"
Did you know that 100s of new games come out every day on the iOS® and Google Play™ digital app stores? Did you know that in 2014, about 500 new iOS® games and about 250 Android™ games appeared in their respective marketplace every 24 hours? And these numbers don't include the 100s of games coming out on Steam™, game consoles and on other leading platforms.

"Olatunjiworld is a French start-up game publishing company, with no contacts in the video games industry, and no track record. Our game, a combination of chess and cards trading games, was our first game. In such a competitive industry with hundreds of millions of games and apps available on mobile platforms, we were expecting to struggle to get any attention from reviewers and journalists when we were ready to launch. From the outset, GAME PROMOTER™ have worked very actively, from testing the game and giving us feedback to improve its gameplay and its appearance, to writing a convincing PR message taking on board the key concepts about the game and about the company that we wanted to communicate, to contacting dozens of reviewers around the world. Their results have been outstanding!"
GAME PROMOTER™ is a privately owned consultancy firm founded in 2009 by game industry gunslinger, Hans Olsen. Born and raised in Køge, Denmark, Olsen kicked off his professional career in 1989, as he accepted a position to work as a consultant for Commodore Business Machines to promote the Commodore AMIGA™ brand of home computers and its growing catalogue of software and games. Prior to this, Hans had founded United Coders™ in 1987, a game studio focused on creating computer games and productivity software for the early generation of 8- and 16-bit home computers. An avid gamer, passionate writer and experienced low-level programmer, he contributed technical and mainstream editorial content to an array of popular publications, including IC Run, COMputer, HighScore Professional, AMIGA Magasinet, AMIGA Interface, and Dreamcast Magasinet.
Hans spent a few years working at retail computer specialist Pro Computer, where he eventually promoted to manager. Headhunted to work as a games programmer for GiliSoft, Olsen left retail to join the developer, and specialized in educational games and e-learning content. When GiliSoft fell victim to the multimedia crash in the 90s, Olsen returned to journalism and accepted a position as CD-ROM Editor and Staff Writer with Audio Media, a reputable publisher responsible for publications such as Alt Om Data, Privat Computer and CD-ROM Spil (later GameZone). Following his stint with Audio Media, Hans accepted a position with T&T Media as their Nordic Editor-In-Chief of PC Player, PlayStation Magasinet, Nintendo Magasinet and Tips & Tricks. Rounding up his editorial endeavors, Olsen joined Game Reactor (owned by Egmont Online) as their first pan-Nordic Editor-In-Chief.
Entering the new millennial in Y2K, Hans set up shop as an entrepreneur re-branding United Coders™ to become a consultancy firm specializing in public relations, marketing and business development. Within a year, his new company had established itself as a leading partner to developers, publishers and distributors across Europe. And in August of 2001, Hans was the co-founder and European Editor-In-Chief of Insert Coin, an exclusive trade-only publication sponsored entirely by ads with a print circulation of 10.000 copies. Insert Coin was distributed to industry peers, analysts, insiders and members of the press.
Hans continued his career by accepting numerous executive positions. Working as the Nordic PR-Manager for JoWood Productions, he was responsible for the launch of a series of simulation- and strategy-games. Hired by Creative Labs Nordic as their Technical PR-Specialist, Olsen promoted and marketed an impressive array of products spanning from innovative MP3 players to speakers, graphics cards and other multimedia accessories. Representing Memorex Products in Europe, Hans was tapped as their Nordic PR-Manager and was in charge of the entire catalogue of accessories and multimedia storage devices. And finally, Olsen was recruited by recommendation to become the Senior European PR-Manager at Vivendi Universal Games, where he was tasked with representing high-profile brands from Sierra®, Black Label Games® and Blizzard®.
In the spring of 2004, Hans relocated from Denmark to the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area of California, and spent five years working as Technical- and Executive-Producer on a handful of work-for-hire game projects for PC, Microsoft XBOX® 360 / XBLA® and the Nintendo DS™ / Nintendo Wii™. GAME PROMOTER™ was founded by Hans Olsen in 2009, and has since become a market-leading partner to more than 1.000 game developers from all continents and corners of the world.
