People tend to forget that play is serious.
David Hockney

Our Philosophy

Here at JRVisuals, we take our games seriously and we think that you should too.

The act of play is engaging, it allows us to relax into the present moment and lets everything else fall away. It stimulates the mind and keeps it fresh. We believe that play, exploration, and storytelling are paramount in truly forging a connection with an online audience.


Are you an advertiser? Consider adding an interactive element to your next product launch, campaign or event. Your audience will spend far more time with a brand if they're playing with rather than passively watching or scrolling.

Are you an educator? Engage your students by meeting them in their world, the world of imagination and interactivity. Going beyond candy-coating existing lessons, we can help craft curriculum that works while students play.

Are you an activist working toward positive social or environmental change? A serious game might help get the word out about your serious issue. We offer sliding scale and pro-bono work for companies and individuals helping to make the world a better place.

The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct.
Carl Jung
