Radisson® is uniting with the rising talents in gaming development to create an exclusive new simulation game that will allow players to design and operate simulated hotels in an effort to create the ultimate hotel empire. Radisson will formally launch the competition at this year’s Radisson Hackathon event. This event is scheduled for Tuesday, March 26, 2013 at the Gaming Developer Conference in San Francisco’s Moscone Convention Center.
Developers from around the country will appear at the conference to participate in Hackathon where Radisson will challenge competitors to create a preview application and potential prototype for an exciting new game themed around aspects of the hotel business and designed for iOS and Google Android phones.
Gamers will have the opportunity to compete as individuals or in teams and will be judged on a variety of criteria including innovative and creative use of the Radisson brand, user engagement game experience, entry presentation, and more. A panel of qualified judges and Radisson executives will determine the winning participant’s program, who will ultimately name Radisson’s newly developed game.
The competition’s winning participant will receive a $25,000 grand prize and the opportunity to assist on a compensated basis in the further development of the Radisson hotel-themed game concept and developed applications. Those interested in participating in the Hackathon event can register online at www.radissonhackathon.com. The link is currently live and will promptly close on Tuesday, March 12, 2013.
