In December 2021 Challonge and Logitech co-hosted its first Game Jam with Coexist Gaming in Brooklyn, NY, and it was nothing short of an amazing experience.
In just one week, four talented teams from across the country designed, developed, and launched brand new competitive video games integrated with Challonge. The teams were among the first to utilize Challonge Connect, Challonge’s new suite of integration tools that enable in-game competition management using the 25+ competition types available on Challonge (brackets, leaderboards, round-robin, FFA, etc..).
Thanks to Challonge Connect the teams all benefited from not having to develop bracket and/or leaderboard logic nor did they have to think about user management and the associated stat tracking. It was all handled through Challonge Connect and with the Challonge Connect Unity Asset.
Here are the games, which you can play today!
Do you have what it takes to drive and defend your hot air balloon from hordes of gun-wielding enemies and climb the integrated Challonge leaderboard? Played from a first-person perspective, you must control your balloon up, down, left, and right while eliminating enemies at the same time. The longer you stay alive, the more enemies you will eliminate, and the more points you’ll earn!
