"Having Jessica and Casual Connect join with Greenlit Content is truly an honor. This is huge for Greenlit's global expansion efforts. Both Casual Connect and the industry have been evolving quickly. We feel that we have an incredible opportunity to define what an event series really looks like in 2019 for the games industry."
