One week from today, our CEO is speaking at the University of Nevada, Reno's TEDx event! James is presenting on what the casino gaming industry should take away from mobile/social gaming as well as from AAA titles as they venture further into online and mobile casino gaming. It's going to be an awesome talk, and we'll hopefully have a video of it to follow after the event.
We at 3G Studios were honored this morning to accept a 2012 “Healthiest Place to Work” award from the Healthcare Forum put on by the Reno-Sparks Chamber of Commerce.
The purpose of the award is to show the importance of healthy employees and to celebrate those companies that have implemented it into their company and mission.Healthy employees miss fewer days at work, in turn, keeping the productivity high, profits up and medical costs down. One of 3G’s missions is to work hard and play hard. In order to both, one needs to be healthy. Our company offers a great benefit package to our employees. We also offer great incentives and encourage healthy eating and exercising. Another one of our mottos is to have FUN! Our employees enjoy coming to work every day and a happy employee equals a healthy employee. We strive to find and implement fun, healthy alternatives inside and out of our working environment.
Thank you so much to The Chamber, all of the sponsors, the panel of judges who voted, and to John Ascuaga’s Nugget for hosting the forum. We would also like to congratgulate all the other winners, especially the Bosma Group for their runner-up finish in our business category.
Big news today! 3G Studios is proud to announce that we will be partnering with Eldorado Interactive, LLC – a subsidiary of Eldorado Resorts. This partnership marks the first time an experienced game developer and a brick-and-mortar casino have entered such an agreement, and we are so very happy to be able to work with such an esteemed company.

Thank you so much to everyone who came out to NCET's Tech Wednesday last night. We’re very happy to have been able to host the event, and thank you so much to Dave Archer and everyone else over at NCET for letting us.

Two pieces of business this post: first, we are proud to be hosting the Nevada Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology’s monthly Tech Wednesday event at our office next Wednesday, August 8th.

We will have demos of some of the projects we’re working on, so if you’re curious what we’ve been up to, stop by! Admission is a bit more for non-NCET members, so take this opportunity to join!
Second, we have video from James’s panel at Casual Connect in case you weren’t able to make it to the conference:
Our CEO James appeared yesterday on the program Nevada Newsmakers! Thank you so much to Sam Shad for having James on the program and giving him a chance to discuss some of the exciting things we’ve got going on both in Nevada and here at 3G Studios. You can find a video of the segment here:
Our open house is tonight! We’re so excited to finally show off our space in Downtown Reno and also to show off all the work we’ve put in preparing for tonight! We have beer and wine being provided by Craft Reno, and we have food coming from Kenji’s, Gourmelt, Fat Burger, The Cheese Board, and Great Thyme Catering! We also have demonstrations of our motion capture studio scheduled, green screen photography, video games, and other things you’ll just have to stop by to see. Not convinced yet? We’re also having a contest this evening, and the winner’s likeness will appear in an upcoming 3G project. This is going to be great!
3G is going to be throwing an open house on May 8th, 2012. We haven’t yet had the chance to properly showcase our office since we moved to Downtown Reno, so we’re planning a big event for family, friends, business friends, and neighbors to come check out our digs. More news to follow as we hammer out the details!
