We are World Builders.

HIGHER LEVEL ENTERTAINMENT

 
 
 

Our mission is to change the way story, technology and fans interact.

We’re architects of tech-driven transmedia franchises that combine games, animation, comics and community. Like a giant puzzle, each piece contributes to the larger story, creating a web of content that permeates the daily lives of our audience.

Using proven tools, we earn the attention of today’s online content consumers, create long-term loyalty and convert casual users into an army of passionate fans. Our strategy redefines ROI, extends brand lifespan and generates multiple value-added assets and revenue streams.
