Kempt is a digital marketing agency specialising in the conception, production and promotion of advergames - an infectious form of interactive entertainment that companies can use to engage consumers online.
We are a leading agency in this rapidly emerging form of brand communications, and we are the brains behind some of the biggest advergame campaigns, such as King of Defenders, which has received over 50 million visits worldwide, with 3.7 million in the UK alone.
We have an in-house creative, strategy and production team, and we also run two large game portals: Tinymania.com and KillerViral.com, and MemeCounter.com - the most sophisticated system available for tracking Advergames.
We like to think of ourselves as experts on advergames. Oh, and just in case you wondered, we don’t actually have super powers... but we do have talent, bags of it in fact!
