Inaugural Skillz Indie Ignite Competition Reveals Untapped Developer Talent

 

Skillz, the worldwide leader in mobile eSports, today announced the winner of its inaugural Indie Ignite game developer competition. First place was claimed by CodeCube Brothers, creators of Color Ring, earning the two Finnish brothers a grand prize valued at over $50,000. Hidden Pixel Games LLC, developers of Pool Payday, also received an honorable mention.

The first-place prize is comprised of a package of services and funds, including a $25,000 user acquisition campaign, $25,000 in game launch optimization services, as well as two Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2019 passes. The contest challenged indie game developers to create the next hit eSports game, and attracted an overwhelming response from the community.

“My brother and I have tried to design a hit mobile game since 2010, and winning this contest has been the biggest validation – if we hadn’t, we’d currently be looking for second jobs to fund our business,” says Esa Salminen, co-founder of CodeCube Brothers. “Monetizing is a big challenge for indie developers in this crowded market, but Skillz has empowered us to pursue our own aspirations while having the financial stability of a larger games studio.”

To enter the competition, mobile game developers integrated the Skillz eSports infrastructure into the title of their choice. The games were evaluated based on criteria including strong D1 and D7 retention rates, daily active users, and core gameplay loop design. Color Ring took the lead with impressive metrics, excelling across all criteria.

“Developers have always been central to our mission of democratizing eSports, and they never cease to impress us with their creativity,” says Andrew Paradise, CEO and founder of Skillz. “Skillz levels the playing field so even the smallest of indie developers have the tools needed to create a world-class eSport – all they have to bring is their creativity.”

Skillz is committed to supporting indie game developers, and kicked off its Indie Ignite Season 2 game developer competition this week. In support of this, Skillz is also hosting its first Game Jam next month. This event features hands-on tutorials from world-class experts on how to design and build successful mobile eSports titles. The Skillz Game Jam is open to all game developers, but is particularly ideal for Indie Ignite entrants.

It has been a time of unprecedented challenges for sporting and racing organisations, as well as bookies and punters – but the sports, racing and betting fraternity are moving tentatively out the other side as the COVID-19 crisis improves. Palmerbet is helping its customers make the most of the return to the status quo – and adding to its impressive suite of betting products – with the launch of the new Bookie Bag*.

The Bookie Bag is made up of three betting features designed to increase value and the betting experience for customers: Price Push, Race Rescue and Game Saver.

Price Push and Race Rescue are both available on all thoroughbred, greyhound and harness racing fixed odds events. Game Saver can be used on head-to-head bets in all NRL, AFL, NBA and NFL matches. The three Bookie Bag features are easy to use and will show on a Palmerbet customer’s betting slip for a valid race or match when they have a Price Push, Race Rescue or Game Saver available.

After choosing a runner in a fixed odds thoroughbred, greyhound or harness race and entering a stake, a customer can select the Price Push option to increase their odds.

When the Race Rescue feature is selected on a thoroughbred, greyhound or harness racing fixed odds bet, the customer’s stake is returned as a bet to use on another event if their runner places second or third.

Similarly, the Game Saver feature provides Palmerbet customers with a second chance when the NRL, AFL, NBA or NFL team they place a Match Result bet on gives up a late lead. If a customer’s chosen NRL team leads at the 60-minute mark but goes on to lose, or the AFL, NBA or NFL team they bet on is in front at three-quarter time but loses, their stake is returned as a bet to use on another event.

Palmerbet customers’ daily available Bookie Bag bets are displayed in their account notifications.
The Bookie Bag features – Price Push, Race Rescue and Game Saver – are set to prove a popular addition to Palmerbet’s range of products, rewarding customers with more bang for their bet and a characteristically user-friendly experience.

Car manufacturer Lamborghini has entered the world of esports with The Real Race, a global esports competition open to Assetto Corsa Competizione players of all levels. Assetto Corsa Competizione is an extraordinary racing simulation game developed by Kunos Simulazioni.

The tournament started on 29 May with five qualifier weekends, before culminating in a live final at Lamborghini’s headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy.

The Real Race will be Lamborghini’s first official entry into eSports, delivering a new sim racing championship blending the real and virtual worlds of racing. Assetto Corsa Competizione was developed alongside car manufacturers and provides a dynamic platform for Lamborghini’s latest racing series.

The top three players from the tournament’s live finals will enjoy a three-day experience in Italy, the home of Lamborghini. Players will have a chance to train alongside Lamborghini Squadra Corse drivers and to drive a real Lamborghini race car at an internationally- renowned racetrack. The competition is open to all experience levels.

Five qualifier weeks take place from 29 May to 2 August. The top three players from the first and last qualifier weekend and top two players from the second, third and fourth weekend, will be whisked away by Lamborghini to the live final on 18 September, where the best drivers will be determined.

“Sim racing is one of the fastest growing sectors in eSports, with eSports increasingly important to younger generations. I also follow it closely! This is an opportunity for us to combine the excitement of virtual racing with the appeal of Lamborghini cars and our motorsports program. ESports creates an environment where race heroes and top drivers can be challenged by anyone. This encourages wider engagement with real-life racing, reflected by Lamborghini’s investment in this new sports platform,” Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini, said.

“I’ve paid close attention to the rise of eSports. Seeing the realism of racing games and how drivers are using racing simulators to practice, or professional eSports players going from simulation to the real thing, is just incredible. The Real Race is designed to portray realism and professionalism. Skills in sim racing are so transferable, which is why Lamborghini wants to give players an opportunity to test drive the real thing as part of the prize. There’s nothing quite like getting behind the wheel of a Lamborghini,” David Coulthard MBE, former Formula One racing driver, who will be the studio-based commentator for the live event, said.
