Diversion

Diversion was formed in early 2010 with a clear goal to provide a necessary fusion between the entertainment industry and the current social gaming renaissance.

The founders are all highly seasoned experts in gaming, web development, digital marketing and entertainment and are setting out in this space with two key differentiators:

Provide users with real-world entertainment tie-in opportunities and experiences. Use of gaming expertise to create a more enjoyable and fulfilling social gaming experience.
