We generate video ad creatives from existing gameplay for game studios

Marketing games is expensive and challenging. We believe that ad creation and optimisation should be simpler, faster, and cost-effective. At Reforged, we use proprietary GenAI and computer vision models to automate video ad generation, analytics, and campaign management for mobile game developers. You can upload your assets, describe a video ad you’d like to create with a text prompt, and produce high-quality, on-brand video assets in minutes for all major marketing channels. From there, our performance AI solution deploys self-improving models to analyze and iterate on campaigns, continuously refining campaign parameters to deliver you the best possible marketing ROI.

TL;DR: Reforged Labs is automating the full marketing cycle for mobile game studios with GenAI. Our text-to-ad creation and campaign performance solutions will slash time spent on ad creatives and help game developers get more mileage out of their game ad budgets.

😤 THE PROBLEM:

Marketing games is expensive and challenging. Mobile game studios spend >50% of their budgets on marketing - more than on development itself - to acquire and retain players. Today, your marketing workflow likely consists of this:

  • Design up to thousands of image, video, and playable ad units per campaign - for multiple campaigns across multiple ad networks
  • Analyze how each ad unit performs - then try your best to figure out which aspects of your ads made them hit or miss (because your reporting tools won’t be giving you that data)
  • Revise your ads and design new ones based on your best guess on what makes your players tick, without knowing whether your experimentation will pay off
  • Manually replace old and low-performing ads with new ones, and repeat the process across all your ad channels

🤩 THE SOLUTION:

We make marketing campaigns substantially faster to run + deliver higher returns on your ad spend. Upload your game images and footage, enter simple text prompts for the ads you’d like to see, and we’ll extract the relevant visual assets and create your ads using a proprietary combination of LLMs, machine perception, and computer vision. Automatically resize finished creatives to fit multi-platform specs and export them as campaign-ready ad units.

Reduce your ad development time from days / weeks / months to minutes.

Once your campaign is up and running, our models analyze and identify which attributes likely made certain ads more effective. Our self-improving models will

🎨 Improve your existing ads by adjusting visual elements to include performance-lifting attributes

🌟 Create new & original ads based on re-scanning your uploaded assets

🚀 Automatically push new & improved ads to your x-channel campaigns and retire low-performers

Increase the ROI on your biggest expense with continuous, data-driven optimization.

🎮 OUR STORY:

Oscar and I (Robert) met over two years ago as serial founders who shared a love for gaming (and countless hours of duo-queuing in League of Legends). We wanted to put our data science and GenAI/deep learning backgrounds to work on solving one of the biggest problems in a space we’re deeply passionate about - and that’s how Reforged Labs was founded six months ago. We’ve since formed a guild of ex-Googlers, ex-Rioters, ex-Microsofties, and a rolodex of indie and multinational clients, to join us on our journey to innovate game marketing!
