As seen in previous and current entries in Swedish Game Awards, Sweden's largest game development competition, student game developers have plenty of creativity, drive and passion. What they sometimes lack is organizational skills, and the tools to work together in an efficient way. Thanks to a unique collaboration between Swedish Game Awards and Hansoft, makers of the premium project management, collaboration and bug tracking tool for game developers, winners of the Best PC Game award can now realize their full potential and bring their game to market in an orderly manner.
Hansoft will offer the winning team a free, ten-user license of its new Hansoft 5.0 solution for one year, worth over 30 000 SEK. Hansoft 5.0 offers extensive functionality in scheduling, tracking, collaboration, and document management and is used by many professional studios, such as Swedish Game Awards silver partner Starbreeze.
"Tools like Hansoft are important when going from a hobbyist development model to one thatis viable for making a competitive game - that's why we're excited to have this license as a prize for our winners", says Swedish Game Awards Project Manager John-Philip Johansson.
"We are happy to help the next generation of Swedish game developers in producing their first commercial title", says Hansoft Managing Director Patric Palm. "Since Hansoft is suitable for use in both small-scale and large-scale game development, the team will benefit even more as it grows."
