TESTIMONIALS FROM GREAT SOLO DEVELOPERS

He came in like a highly experienced surgeon with his sharp knife

We had a pleasure working with Yohann. He came in like a highly experienced surgeon with his sharp knife, pointed out all the weak aspects on our pitch and how to improve it to get the best results when presenting it to Publishers. He did all of this in a very short time and stayed true to our company’s and game’s core vision. We can’t wait to work with him again.

Kirthy Iyer - CEO / Co-Founder

Indispensable part of our team

Yohann has made himself an indispensable part of our team.  As a new studio, this was our first game release, so we contacted Yohann to get some Press work done.

The press release itself was excellent and much appreciated, but Yohann went far above and beyond working with us on our presskit page, ensuring we had good screenshots and solid write-ups.  He not only does excellent work but also gave a lot of well thought out substantive advice.  He’ll be our go-to for anything relating to press and media outreach

Jordan Smilovic - CEO

I highly recommend working with Yohann

Yohann has been instrumental in the planning and execution of the Conscript Kickstarter campaign.  Without him, it would have been impossible to manage this campaign by myself.

Marketing is often the last thing on our minds as developers, so it’s okay to reach out for help! Yohann offers essential marketing services at indie affordable rates, and I would highly recommend working with him if you need assistance in the marketing department.

Perfect for a dev single player

Kévin Drure

Yohann was able to grasp the concept of the game from the very first moment, which he described perfectly in a quality press release. I enjoyed following the evolution in real-time and his precious advice. Perfect for a dev single player like me, who’s jumping in the water!

I would add that the pro relationships have a real human side, looking forward to working with him again.

A Great Help

Clément, CEO Play Together Studio

Yohann quickly understood the game and wrote a kickass press release. He has a great knowledge of the gaming business and how things work.

Definitely a great help for a one-man operation like myself!

Clément Marthe - CEO

Extremely Professional

Gary Burchell

Yohann is extremely professional and diligent. He worked hard to deliver a large workload to a high quality.

The highest recommendation is that I would happily work with him again!

Gary Burchell - Biz Dev, Designer, Project Lead

The Man

I think Yohann is THE MAN for you when it comes to PR support in general.

He worked very diligent and passionate with a great repertoire of social media contacts and valuable insights.

 

Alexander Wagner - 2tainment GmbH Marketing Manager

Satisfied

I am satisfied with Yohann’s performance, in particular the size of the reached audience and the insistence he has in the follow-up among journalists and influencers. (…)

I appreciated the fact that I was kept informed very regularly and synthetically of the progress of the campaign.

Brett Ridle - Sparkly Games CEO

Helpful Foundation

Expanding presence was a helpful foundation for us to move forward in France/Belgium area working with Yohann, and got the buzz started.
