Playable Marketing Campaigns is the latest attempt by Snapchat to make some Ad money!

In the past, Snapchat has seen platform-specific releases of films and television shows, but this marks the first time the service has ventured into the video game market. It’s a forgettable move and one that’s more marketing than gaming, but it does give us at least a glimpse into what the future of the platform could look like.


As mobile apps look for newer ways to earn money from their sponsors, Snapchat has decided to turn one of their latest marketing campaigns into an 8-bit inspired video game where you play thru all of Serena Williams history in exchange it promotes the US Open event, plus their ESPN broadcaster and famous sports drink Gatorade.
