Especially looking for hidden object Android games
As one of the new breed of causal games companies, Canadian outfit GoGii Games is keen to encourage innovation in the industry - that's the thinking behind its $100,000 (Canadian) King of Casual Contest.
Open to all studios, with special preference for hidden object and mobile - notably Android - games, submissions must consist of a playable demo, and file sizes are limited to 200MB.
"To me, it's all about providing opportunity and nurturing talent," says founder and CEO, George Donovan.
"Currently we work with international development studios, and these collaborative partnerships have allowed Gogii and their partners to benefit and grow. We're looking to continue doing that and hoping to find fresh new talent with this contest."Find the prize
