LONDON, UK – 9 August, 2022 - Product Madness is proud to introduce Madness Ventures, a one-of-a-kind game-dev incubator programme designed to support game developers to build, test and market their new free-to-play, mobile games based on chance.  Product Madness’ goal through this global programme is to foster the creation of tomorrow’s genre-defining mobile games.

What makes this incubator programme different is the level of support offered by the industry-leading mobile games company, publishers of global games titles including Heart of Vegas, Cashman Casino and Lightning Link.  As well as the opportunity to secure extensive development funding at each incubation stage, successful applicants will have access to the company’s world-class resources and a roster of top industry talent, including experienced mentors, service providers, and other key creative and commercial stakeholders.

“Madness Ventures is a dream incubator for ambitious gaming experts and developers with an innovative, free-to-play mobile game idea designed around chance,” said Zvika Pakula, VP Strategy & Business Development. 

“Product Madness’ unique approach to game development brings together the very best in visual design, digital entertainment and marketing.  With a catalogue of global smash hit titles developed in-house, we can’t wait to harness our tried and tested approach to support the next generation of game developers.  Our team’s passion for innovation and creativity sits at the core of Madness Ventures, and I believe a programme of this kind has never been seen before,” added Pakula.
