It is always a great pleasure to collaborate with the guys from DDM. They are super responsive, great communicators, always more than willing to walk the extra mile, plus they are honest and fair. What else can you expect from a partner who is helping you to get the big deals for your studio you are looking for? We can only recommend our friends at DDM.

Working with Joe Minton and the rest of the team at DDM is always a pleasure. Even for a veteran studio like Stainless Games, the benefits in terms of making contacts, strategic planning, and deal-flow are just extraordinary. DDM deliver and are an essential facet of our business development, now and in the future.

We could not have been happier with how DDM has helped our business and has represented our interests in the last couple of years. They helped us grow our clientele significantly. They helped us identify improvements to how we run our company, and suggested ways forward on a wide range of topics. They help facilitate and schedule our presence at major industry events in Europe, the US and Japan. They give feedback on contracts, projects, presentation, representation and all without an agenda other than helping us be the best we can. We went from “we do not need an agency” to “why did we do this 20 years without these guys?”. DDM is Invaluable.

I have been working with John Sutyak of DDM for nearly three years, although I have known him for over 20. Primarily, John is helping me to bridge the gap between some of DDM's highest quality clients and my Asia-based investment fund. John's deep experience in the games business allows us to deal with complex issues in a knowing shorthand, with equal weight on both the business and the human elements. For an investor, it's essential to understand not just what the potential investee wants, but why they want it and where they need to go. John specializes in this level of understanding and advice and is an invaluable resource to both sides. Plus, he's just a good guy.

“Joe and the team at DDM were a pleasure to work with and were a wealth of information and knowledge in the video game industry. They were very helpful in educating us on the sector and opened up many doors with their network of contacts which has clearly taken many years to cultivate.”
