UPDATE 12/04/2021: Unfortunately, due to the developing COVID-19 situation and guidelines in Bangalore, the Kickstart with Kwalee event will be postponed until a soon-to-be-confirmed date in May 2021. Registration for the free event remains open here and updated event details will be provided to all registrants as soon as they are available.
As many of you will be aware, we have a fast-growing team in Bangalore that has quickly become a pivotal part of our successes in recent months.
We have never been in doubt about the amazing development talent that exists in and around Bangalore – indeed, it’s the main reason we chose it as the location for our first studio outside Leamington Spa – and now we want to connect better with the independent game developers in the region to share our knowledge and explore possible collaborations.
That’s why we’re hosting our first ever ‘Kickstart with Kwalee’ event in Bangalore in May 2021 to share specialist hypercasual knowledge and mentorship with attending developers. The one-day event will be completely free to attend and developers can register their interest here, although final attendance numbers will be limited to provide developers with the best possible access to our hypercasual gaming experts. Of course, the event will also be held in accordance with local COVID-19 guidelines.
With our various specialised departments prototyping and testing tens of hypercasual games each day, not to mention collaborating with countless independent developers from all around the world, Kickstart with Kwalee will be the perfect forum for us to reveal some of the secrets behind chart-topping games.
If you’re selected to attend the inaugural Kickstart with Kwalee event, you’ll get targeted and practical input from the company’s experienced game designers, artists, publishing professionals and more. This knowledge will be imparted through focused presentations and 1-on-1 sessions to discuss the specifics of your own projects. Of course there will be plenty of room for food and socialising too!
So if you’re in the Bangalore area and want to get direct feedback from a publisher with more than 600 million downloads, with a view to scoring a lucrative publishing deal and sparking a longer-term collaboration, be sure to register your interest here! We’ll be sure to get back to everyone who registers, even if you don’t make the limited invite list this time around.
