Testimonials

We love working with DDM. The primary job of agents is to open doors and represent you, and of course, DDM does that well. However, they do so much more. DDM is a consistent sounding board, a top-notch group capable of making something good great.

The Bearded Ladies have been working with DDM for years now and looking back on that time, DDM has played major role in improving our pitching quality, introducing us to publishers and signing a publishing deal. They have a profound knowledge on the industry, that is important when setting a pitching schedule and in negotiating a deal. I strongly recommend DDM as it is a pleasure doing business with them.

Making video games has never been easier and at the same time more competitive. With tools like Unreal Engine and Unity as well as digital distribution on PC and Console broadly available for everyone, it is paramount to find the right game production service providers to be able to compete with the best games out there. DDM has been a been a great help to find us top-notch partners for external art, animation, story writing and porting tasks that we otherwise wouldn’t have considered to work with.

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.

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.

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.

Longtime DDM client Deck13 has recently been acquired by Focus Home, after having worked together since 2011 on award winning brands such as The Surge. Mathias Reichert, Managing Director at Deck13 relays, “I worked very close with Maarten and Martijn in the last few years to achieve our business targets. The impact on our growth has been phenomenal. So it was no question that we use DDM as advisors for our acquisition by Focus Home Entertainment SA.” DDM congratulates the fantastic teams at both Deck13 and Focus Home in achieving this major milestone!

Digital Development Management has been a fantastic partner for all aspects of the business end for bringing a great creative product to market. From finding connections to contract review, negotiation and pre-vetting outsource groups, DDM excels at the range of services you need from a world-class agency.

Over the past year, DDM has helped Red Thread Games double in size, expand our network and sign major new projects — they’ve been an invaluable business partner, and they’re also lovely people!  

The DDM team are great; it’s always a pleasure to meet with their clients and see their pitches, they run a professional outfit and understand how the games business works.

DDM has been instrumental in the growth of our agency. Their diligent approach to vetting opportunities before we get involved is invaluable. It has not only saved us lots of time and resources in the pitching process but also ensured our alignment with the needs of a client are strong leading to more successful outcomes. We’ve had the pleasure of working with the DDM team in North America and Japan. The common thread is a highly professional approach, strong communication and negotiation skills and an unwavering enthusiasm and championing spirit for the industry and their clients.

The DDM Team are rock solid professionals and better yet – true allies and friends. Every step of the way from startup to our successful exit (and even after), they’ve been critical to our business success in the gaming market. You can ask for none better!

DDM have consistently knocked it out of the park for The Trailerfarm. The perfect choice for our representation in the U.S.

Collaborating with DDM has helped us to forge meaningful new relationships within the games industry and find the best possible outlets for our expertise. DDM’s openness to aligning with third parties like Crucial Path also speaks volumes about their desire to ensure clients are connected with service providers who can really transform their business. We’ve enjoyed a great working relationship with DDM from day one, and we look forward to that continuing in the future.

Our ties with DDM are strong. I'm sure all their clients share a similar perspective. DDM has connections with potential partners and clients all around the world. In practical terms, DDM has helped us make significant leaps in a league of clientele in a fairly short amount of time. As such, DDM is a partner we value and cherish. If you have the potential to bring real value to the industry, DDM is your catalyst to make this happen.
