The company is a strong contender in the Best Games Service Provider category, which will be judged by a panel of over 400 industry execs.

Our client list contains a who’s who of mobile entertainment. Mobile game services have become an increasingly important part of our business and we are committed to continued growth alongside our mobile partners.’
Universally Speaking marketing manager Connie Armstrong added,‘This is our second nomination in a short time. We were finalists at the Develop Awards last month and here we are again. This award nomination gives us another opportunity to strengthen our new name and identity in this buoyant mobile market.’
Commenting on Universally Speaking’s nomination, key client Player X had this to say,‘We love working with Universally Speaking. No deadline too tight, no concept too difficult to translate while keeping all the humour intact and cultural references transposed. They’re the best!’
