Marketing Campaigns[edit]

R&P was known from their "all-out" marketing campaigns.[citation needed] With these campaigns, R&P Electronic Media was the first interactive games developer that brought PC games to the mainstream public.[citation needed] Notable was the award R&P Electronic Media won in 1996 for best consumer marketing in the industry, outcompeting Sony PlayStation and Nintendo.[citation needed] Also, R&P Electronic Media was noted for the longest radio commercial to have been broadcast in the Netherlands; 1.30 minutes for the PC game Atlantis.

R&P Electronic Media was also known for their high quality free demo's that were created as teasers for the PC games. Large retail stores were often faced with hundreds to thousands of people asking for the free demo of the games, leading to significant increase in shop traffic.[citation needed]

Online Technologies[edit]

As part of the RPL Interactive Group, which focused on online technologies, R&P Electronic Media stopped with the development and release of PC games and related software in 2000. RPL Interactive is still active today in the online market.
