Kochi: Csharks, a Kochi based game development company, is conducting ‘Game Srishti’, a game development contest for students with an aim of providing opportunities and recognition for young talented and creative game developers. Game Srishti is open to games in all common platforms including PC’s, Tablets, Android and web based platforms.
Game Srishti has a time-frame of two months from April 1st to May 30th for students to develop, upload their application online and share the game, after which it will be evaluated by a team of experts. Prizes include iPads, Xboxs and PSPs, and even may lead to the game being adopted and published by Csharks.
According to Eldhose P Mathew, CEO of Csharks, “We are holding this contest in order to boost the gaming industry, create awareness about job opportunities to students, and to fulfil the corporate social responsibility of supporting students interested in game development. Besides, it is also expected to help the industry in its growth by attracting fresh talent. Csharks will also provide professional guidance to the contestants if required”.
Juwal Bose, Creative Head of Csharks said, “The challenges a game developer face are multidimensional – involving creativity, imagination, problem solving, analysing, mathematics, physics and mostly pure brilliance. We aim to ensure that the students are aware of the industry and get a fulfilling experience about the job, early in their career. Game Srishti will surely provide an early exposure that can help in career selection. A person capable of this is worthy to be recognised and Csharks team is trying to provide the recognition as early as possible through Game Srishti. “
