One of the challenges you face as a game developer, retailer or analyst is that you need to be sure you're getting accurate information from credible or expert sources. The rise of the internet has brought to the fray all kinds of social and non-traditional "gaming experts" with virtually no understanding regarding how to market your organization or video games that don't hit a specific demographic. This ever-expanding games industry shows no signs of slowing down. New gamers are coming onboard every day and older gamers are spreading the gamer-demographic across five (or more) decades. With iPhones, 3DS and downloadable games lowering the barrier for entry into this pastime, we are absolutely in a Golden Age of gaming. As new people are drawn into gaming, they simply cannot know where we came from or what makes a good game.

With everything you have spinning on a daily basis with your own business, you don't have time to ask yourself if the author of that blog or Op-Ed has a extensive background in the marketing of games, has ever been published in peer-reviewed journals, or what their reputation is with key contacts in the industry.

++Good Games is about celebrating the best games, the best developers and the greatest experiences this industry has to offer. Along the way we want to share what has made this industry so exceptional these past 40 years.

Why We Are Different

The mission of ++Good Games (Double Plus Good Games) is to simply share our love and knowledge of video games and highlight the joy they bring. ++Good Games is about celebrating the best games, the best developers and the greatest experiences this industry has to offer. Along the way we want to share what has made this industry so exceptional these past 40 years.
Decades of Experience

In the 64-bit days of 1996, the principals of Bauer Graphics were developing illustrations, designs, user interfaces and animation services at Imagebuilder Software. Working with companies like Disney, Activision, THQ, Microsoft, Hasbro, Crayola and others, the team garnered a tremendous amount of experience on what it takes to bring a game to market. More than a decade later, Bauer Graphics is still working in the games industry helping promote worldwide brands like Mario, Sonic, Master Chief and are trusted with triple-A titles like Resident Evil and World of Warcraft.
We Do "That"

At our core, we are a full-service graphic design & digital innovations studio dedicated to providing our clients with high impact, enterprise quality, design work.
