Sponsors

Post by MakeItGraphic »

Does Factorio have company sponsors backing their game, or do they simply honor other companies?

I saw a Forge of Empires ad in game; https://www.innogames.com/

InoGames Station it was spelled wrong but you were able to understand it.

InnoGames GmbH is a German video game developer based in Hamburg. Founded in 2007, it focuses on the development of browser and mobile games. The company now has more than 200 million registered players and by 2017, it reached a revenue of €161.5 million.

Or was this a mod sneaking ads in secretly?

Can you post a screenshot? I've seen and heard nothing of this sort.

Nothing to really see, is what I described. I mean I never heard of Ino, or Inno until I saw it in game.

I thought it was just independent backers not actual companies. :ugeek: That's pretty neat.

I thought it was as well (early backers on Kickstarter and what not); How likely is it that one of them put that in (they got to choose what name appeared)? Also, just searching "Ino gaming" on youtube brings up a dozen channels, so it's also entirely possible that it's unrelated to that company.

I don't use YouTube for gaming so that very well could be it (a channel name), and it is merely a coincidence it Googles to that company.

You're right on that one. And talking of which, I think that every company should have a great sponsor, which will lead company with financial resources, and of course if needed - additional hints how company should be involved in different processes. No joke, even some TikTok channels have their sponsors and realted agencies, which help them with promotion of the channel.
