Campaign Setup

Games can be advertised on gaming and non-gaming channels  – the content does not matter if the audience is a fit.

Paradox’s mobile gaming hit Knights of Pen & Paper 2 has a very dedicated but niche target audience, that is hard to target with a broad gaming campaign. Instead GameInfluencer focused on smaller and mid-sized channels, that are watched mostly by Tabletop-Nerds and old-School gamers.


The influencers for this campaign were based on their audience’s affinity with the game, their demographics and the perceived overall profile performance.

Influencers were given full creative freedom to implement the game as naturally as possible in the style of their channels, only following a few simple talking points.

Talking Points

  • Humor is a big part of the game, so make sure to keep a funny approach to it.
  • The game contains a huge amount of pop culture inside jokes, feel free to share them and create your own.
  • Mention that the game is available for free on the iOS and Android app store.
