The Game Agency, a software development company, has been named to the Inc “Best Workplaces” of 2018.

“There are so many things, both tangible and intangible, that influence a company culture. The two that we spend our time and energy on are People and Purpose.

If you don't have both of these traits you won't last. 3. Only work with clients that share your values. When you get this right everything works in concert to amplify the culture you want,” said Joseph McDonald, Managing Partner and Head of Production at The Game Agency.
