Kwalee has announced that they are hosting their first game jam of 2022. Titled “Sunset Game Jam”, the event began on the 14th of March and runs for almost an entire month – until the 3rd of April.
Top entries in this 20-day game jam could get a publishing deal and a sponsored vacation. Winners will get a vacation worth up to $5,000 per person for up to 4 people.
Sunset Games are essentially a variant of endless runners that focus on positive player engagement, and have become a staple part of Kwalee’s gaming portfolio, with the chart-topping successes of Rocket Sky! and Jetpack Jump being a testament to Kwalee’s long-standing promise of making great hit games.
Submitted jam entries are evaluated based on the theme “Sunset Games” and the game’s overall enjoyment factor by the judging panel composed of Kwalee’s team members. Participants who make it to the top entries could potentially get various perks from the company, including but not limited to a vacation worth up to $5,000 per person for up to four people, including the participant(s) themselves. You can visit the sunset game jam page to learn more about the perks involved.
The event was kicked off by Kwalee’s prominent Senior Publishing Manager and game industry veteran Jake Parker with a webinar for those interested in learning more about what Sunset Games are about, along with one of Kwalee’s talented game designers.
As with most game jams, it’s an opportunity for game developers from various backgrounds to come together and show their amazing talents through the games they make and be rewarded for their efforts.
In addition to Sunset Games, Kwalee is open to taking in submissions of all kinds of mobile games, whether it falls under the hyper-casual, hybrid-casual, or casual genre.
Developers with this deal have the opportunity to publish their games and join Kwalee’s portfolio of mobile games that raked in over 800 million global installs, with Draw it officially contributing over 100 million installs alone. Catch the news about Draw it’s continued success right here.
