100% Indie is teaming up with Over the Air to provide a money-can’t-buy prize for this year’s Best Game Award.
100% Indie is a collaboration between Chillingo, the leading mobile games publisher and division of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) and Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. Spearheaded by Chillingo founders, Chris Byatte and Joe Wee, 100% Indie aims to inspire, foster and support indie developers around the world and help them bring their games to market.
The winner of the Over the Air Best Game Award will be invited to the Chillingo and 100% Indie offices to meet the team and have a one-on-one with Chris and Joe (publishers of Angry Birds, Cut the Rope and Contre Jour, among many others) to learn how to get started in the games industry.
“We’re delighted to be supporting such a well established and yet indie event as this,” says Joe. “The whole ethos of Over the Air is about discovering and nurturing creativity and innovation, which ties in perfectly with our approach to gaming. Inventions from past events have led to real career breaks for many attendees and it’s an excellent hub for research and development, as well as a natural fit for gaming.”
