TechInAfrica – Two mobile game publishing platforms Carry1st and CrazyLabs unite to present a 3-6 month paid accelerator in South Africa’s Cape Town for any aspiring game programmers, designers, and artists.
The entry which will begin from July to August invites individuals interested or familiar with hypercasual gaming, free-to-play (F2P) games with simple mechanics.
Lucy Hoffman, COO at Carry1st said, “Together with CrazyLabs, we are invested in growing the mobile gaming ecosystem in Africa by providing the next generation of developers with the skills, resources, and network to reach millions of users globally. We can’t wait to start welcoming applicants, and hope that the Cape Town program will be the first of many that we and CrazyLabs launch in Africa.”
“The African continent is latent with potential for great ideas to be transformed into world-class gaming experiences,” Omri Henkin, VP Business Development at CrazyLabs said.
“We look forward to kicking off the program and providing new developers the knowledge as well as the platform to iterate and scale their work.”
The individuals will participate as 2 to 3 members per team ( a total of 10 teams), and an individual who self-apply will be matched with a similar complementary skilled individual.
