Best Co-production: The Messi Space Scooter Game was a collaboration between GAMEDIA, various freelance artists, Space Scooter and Messi's representatives. Promotion of Space Scooters was one of the main objectives of the game, and as such, GAMEDIA has collaborated intensively with Space Scooter, ensuring their product is featured as correctly and frequently as possible. The game includes contests for real prizes, distributed by Space Scooter and provides vouchers for their online shop. At the same time, frequent collaboration with the Messi brand was required with regard to the appearance of the Messi logo (which can be found in various forms throughout the game), outfits belonging to Messi's other sponsors and the appearance of Messi, down to discussions about the amount of beard stubble on Messi's cheeks.
