Grameenphone hosts competition for mobile game developers
Grameenphone and White-Board have launched a competition to develop smartphone games in Bangladesh. The competition titled “Game Jam” has 25 participants, according to a press release released Thursday. A 48-hour session will see the teams complete a plethora of tasks within the time limit. The top three teams will receive comprehensive support from Grameenphone to extend their reach globally. The games are expected to feature great visuals and effects, interesting mechanics and a memorable journey, and come with in-app purchases. A preparatory boot camp will be held on April 22 with the 25 selected teams before the session. The 48-hour jam will take place over April 28 and 29. An expert panel of judges will pick three teams after the session. Developers who are interested can register at the website. The deadline for submitting applications for Game Jam is April 13. The three games will be made market-ready by July, 2017 and will be launched exclusively through Grameenphone.
