What’s New this month

We had a total blast over the weekend being mentors and judges at the Going Hyper Casual Winter 2021 Game Jam.

Huge congrats to all the people who took part and especially the winners who scooped the prizes and will be joining the RisingHigh family, welcome!

The quality of the games was awesome and it was tough judging, but as said, it was a lot of fun and got us thinking… AcademyJam 2021 anyone?

A Huuuge congrats to Academy Member Faisal for winning regional prize of $20K in (south Asia) in Voodoo’s latest runner competition.

Having watched the game grow and speaking several times on the design of the game, we could be more thrilled for him. This is simply amazing and we’re completely blown away by your result and this huge achievement.

It’s a great game and truly deserved, well done sir!

Congratulations are most certainly in order too for Jason who landed a game developer job over with our friends at Homa Games, this month.

This is just incredible news and we wish him all the success in his new role.

The next Rising’High 5 goes to Christoph for submitting his first Unity game to the Appstore and reaching this milestone.

This is no small feat and it’s been great to see his journey over on his Devlog.
