November 01, 2015 by Nordeus

For the fifth successive year, Nordeus, the most successful and most prominent regional game developer and publisher, is organizing the most challenging competition in the development of video games - Nordeus Hackathon.  This year Nordeus Hackathon will take place on 12th of December 2015 in the company's premises in Belgrade.

Nordeus Hackathon has, like the company itself, has become one of the most recognizable brands in the gaming industry, and after five years it continues to set new standards. Although it was initially conceived as a competition intended for all game developers, regardless of skill level, this year the application calls primarily professionals from well-established indie and famous international development studios.

Creativity, team spirit, resourcefulness and knowledge will again be critical for selecting the winners of the Nordeus Hackathon 5 in a set of categories for which Nordeus prepared the best and the most valuable prizes so far.

“Nordeus Hackathon represents one of the pillars upon which our success was built. Teamwork, skills and passion are just some of the values that are needed to build the best games in the industry. We are persistently looking for talents, the best of the best in all areas of game development. By organizing this game jam we are giving them the opportunity to express themselves in the best possible way, while at the same time we’re supporting the regional gaming industry and its development”, says Nordeus CEO Branko Milutinović.

Applications for Nordeus Hackathon 5 are now open through the official contest website at www.nordeushackathon.com .

Applications are open for teams, as well as for individuals. After submitting their applications, contestants will undergo a selection process done by Nordeus’ team of experts made of HR experts, developers and artists who will pick the best contestants! Deadline for submitting applications is 23rd November 2015.

Nordeus covers all the costs of transportation and accommodation in Belgrade for the selected contestants outside of Serbia. All necessary equipment and software will be provided by the organizer.

Finding the best talents from the region, even worldwide, from the gaming industry is, as it has always been, the primary goal of Nordeus Hackaton 5. One of the last year’s winners, Andrej Jagar, said: „Nordeus Hackathon was awesome! For me personally, it was the absolute test for our team and we really gave our best! The organization was seamless, team spirit was at a professional level, and yet we felt at ease. We came back to our home town inspired, so we began working on a new big gaming project.”
