Maverick PR Clients CLEAN UP At E3 2012; We Take a Moment To Bathe In Their Glory

A writer from a video game web site emailed me last week after we announced the new game FORGE from indie developer Dark Vale Games and he said (paraphrasing) “Wow… you guys really know how to pick the best clients … they’re all doing such interesting things.” I couldn’t agree more. Some of that is dumb luck, of course, but a lot of it is by choice.

We’re not a big agency and we don’t handle HALO or CALL OF DUTY.  Sure part of us would like to swim around in that obscene amount of gamer cash, but we started Maverick with the intent of choosing who we work with and the way we work.  We honestly feel that our client partners are some of the most innovative, creative and downright interesting people and products in the industry.  And it seems that everyone who went to E3 2012 agrees with us. Our clients ARE the best!

The nominations and awards have been rolling in since Day 1 of the show, and the stream doesn’t seem to end. ASTRO’s A50s, HAWKEN and Quantum Conundrum are some of the most decorated titles from the show and we couldn’t be more proud to be part of their campaigns.

Check out the list of nominations and wins below (NOT SEPARATED BY NOMS AND WINS, FYI)… so many and, quite frankly, I haven’t included them all here!  Congrats to all the teams involved! Now on to us basking in the glow of their amazing achievements!!
