Ejen Ali HackathonCategory:
October 31, 2015
Over one hectic weekend in October, Media Prima Digital kick-started the Ejen Ali Game Jam hackathon, the first programme under their new initiative, Media Prima Labs. The hackathon was organised in partnership with MDeC, Microsoft, Primeworks Studios, Veedo and WAU Animation, as a platform for all game creators, be it beginners or professionals to present outstanding ideas for an upcoming mobile gaming experience featuring Ejen Ali.
The Game Jam was held at Makespace Quill City Mall on 31st October 2015 until 1st November 2015. The participants had 36 hours to design and code their finest game concept and create a playable game demo starring Ejen Ali, with over 80 enthusiastic developers staying up all night to complete this mission. Two teams were crowned the winners in two categories, the Open Category and the Student Category. Both teams earned RM100,000 cash grant each to develop their winning idea into a complete game and launch it together with the premiere of the Ejen Ali series on Bananana! TV3 in early 2016.- VEEDO
