Moments of play
To drive renewed interest in casual mobile games, Big Spaceship partnered with Google Play to take over a laundromat in NYC’s East Village with gaming kiosks, gaming-themed decor, and free prizes for lucky laundry-goers.
The catch? This laundromat didn’t take cash… visitors had to Play to Pay. By transforming an unexpected and mundane location like a laundromat, we reminded people that any routine moment—even laundry day—can be totally transformed by simply adding a Moment of Play.
Turning everyday chores into moments of play
The activation drove positive attendee interactions with the featured games and Google Play’s brand. While social activity spiked for the event on its first day, in-person attendance grew steadily over the weekend and culminated in a Sunday full of prizes for attendees.
We outperformed client expectations and consistently drove downloads for featured games on the Google Play store.
The experience demonstrated the way games give anyone a bit of escapism, even in the most mundane of locations.
To connect players with each title at the laundromat, we designed kiosks inviting fans, press, and influencers to #PlaytoPay.
We convinced attendees that Google Play can turn any moment — even chores — into a Moment of Play.
