To attract the visitor, days before the event began, we created a game named Imperial Gladiator. Making a different experience of our common product, we designed it to be a multiplayer flash-based game. It can be played by 4 different players with joysticks! This game challenged the player to collect as many stars as possible, while avoiding some obstacles and knocking down the opponents.
And see what happened during the expo? Hectic atmosphere was successfully created! The guys were so vibrant! This game made a great effect to make everyone “burned” and exposing their teeth
To appreciate the participating visitor, exclusive gifts were available to grab on. There were cute mugs, pins, and lots of stickers. All these items were cleared up before the event closed.
