“Traditionally marketing is seen as an effort that lies at the end of the development process of a product, but to me marketing should be an integral part of the product’s design, especially in the games-as-a-service business,” said De La Camara.

“Understanding your customer, designing optimal experiences, and creating products they fall in love with, should be the focus of any business.”

Outplay CEO Douglas Hare added: “We’re incredibly happy to have Luis join the Outplay family. I’m looking forward to having his experience, talent, and leadership help propel us to our next level of growth and success.”
