GBANGA AUS ZÜRICH GEWINNT DEN GROSSEN PREIS DER US-AMERIKANISCHEN UNIVERSAL GAMEDEV CHALLENGE

25.10.2018 Das junge Zürcher Game-Unternehmen Gbanga hat in Los Angeles für seinen Game-Prototyp "Voltron - Cubes of Olkarion" den Grossen Preis der international ausgeschriebenen Universal GameDev Challenge gewonnen. Das Preisgeld beträgt 150'000 Dollar und ist verbunden mit einem Jahres-Beratungsvertrag mit dem US-amerikanischen Unterhaltungs-Giganten Universal. Der Zürcher Beitrag war gegen fast 550 andere aus 60 Ländern angetreten.


Today Universal Games and Unity Technologies announced the winner from the Universal GameDev Challenge: "Voltron: Cubes of Olkarion," by us, Zurich-based studio, Gbanga. The Universal GameDev Challenge, sponsored by Intel and Microsoft, invited developers to design a PC game that leveraged one of five Universal-owned iconic brands: Back to the FutureJawsBattlestar GalacticaDreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender and Turok.

Nearly 550 submissions were received worldwide. As the grand prize winner, Gbanga will receive $150,000 and a year-long consulting contract with Universal.

Using the massive cube super-weapon featured on the Netflix original series DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender, Gbanga imagined a world where the villainous Zarkon finds a way to mass-produce more cubes, and in their story, smaller cubes with different attack and defense abilities formed the basis for an ancient Olkari board game. Judges selected "Voltron: Cubes of Olkarion" based on its instant playability of the game prototype, the game's potential for expansion into a commercial product, and, most importantly, the amount of fun judges had while playing it.
