Copenhagen, Denmark – 30. November 2018 – After over 5000 game developers participated in last year’s event, the 3rd edition of the yearly community-sponsored Christmas event for Unity game developers organized by Unity Asset Store publisher Devdog has attracted over 50 sponsors providing a combined 1000+ prizes, upping the prize-pool from last year’s $35,000 to over $3000,000.
Throughout the event-period, participants will have a daily chance at grabbing one of the game development tools up for grabs, and as a bonus this year, every participant will receive a copy of VisualDesignCafe’s popular Nested Prefabs Unity-tool too.
The Christmas event starts Dec. 1st and runs until Dec. 25th, each day seeing more and more presents added to the daily gift pool.
Among the many sponsors of the Christmas event are industry powers such as Nordic Game Jam, PocketGamer Connects, and a whole sleeve of the best-selling Unity Asset Store publishers, with GameAnalytics acting as a promotion partner.
“We’re proud to see over 55 industry partners come together to give the game developers who make the games we all love to play a chance at winning an early Christmas present,” said Devdog co-founder, Sune Thorsen.
