A few months ago we introduced you to the Belgian gaming platform OJOO (CEO Peter Symons) when it secured an impressive1 million euro cash injection to boost its international expansion.
For those who missed the article: OJOO is a free mobile app for iOS, Android and Windows users. With OJOO, you can download and/or create location-based city games, museum tours, scavenger hunts and tourism apps from all over the world. OJOO uses GPS signals and beacons to guide you through a game and to provide on-site facts, intriguing stories and fun challenges based on your geographical position in the game.
From November 18 until November 21 OJOO is organising a Mini Games Competition for developers. If you have an idea to create a mini game that can be played for 3 to 5 minutes as part of an OJOO, have Unity skills, this competition is for you. OJOO has created a Unity framework allowing developers to create customisable mini games that can be integrated in the OJOO App & Studio. They are looking for simple pick-up and play games that can be skinned easily to be integrated seamlessly into their city games.
The contest will involve a hackathon at the offices of OJOO in Ghent on November 19. Teams can continue working on their project until 12 pm the next day. The winner of the game takes home €1000, the four runners up €500. Note: International projects are also welcome. You don’t need to attend the hackathon in person, you can join remotely. As long as your project is according to the framework standards, you’re good to go. Good luck!
