Kicking off 2021 on an exciting note, game publisher Ketchapp, software firm Fyber, and Gamejam are working together to launch their first online hypercasual game jam next year.
Dubbed HNY21 Jam, game developers worldwide are invited to create the best hypercasual game within 18 days with a chance to take home a share of the $150,000 prize pool.
The online event also allows participants to get a chance to receive insights and coaching from industry experts, all the while having the opportunity to partner with other like-minded talents worldwide.
Experts from game publishers will critique the prototypes and pick winners based on the following criteria:
- marketing appeal
- player experience and satisfaction
- depth of the core gameplay
The game jam will kick off on January 21.
