Nadav Ashkenazy, SVP of the Supersonic team, has these words for the third Superstars competition:

“The third Superstars contest is our most ambitious yet, as we have raised the first prize to $2 million. Even more exciting, we are encouraging indie game developers – who we see time and again going from near anonymity to chart leaders in the hyper-casual category – to take part in the contest. We’re really excited to see the creativity that this contest will surely yield.”

In the past two Superstars competitions, we’ve seen many success stories from indie developers. One of them is the tremendous success story of Turkish mobile game studio Garawell Games with last year’s Superstars winner Bridge Race. In addition, the games that managed to enter the Top 10 in the Top Charts list include Elemental Master from FeoFun, from Black Candy, and Escalators from Black Candy.

With a huge prize pool, the Superstars competition can’t wait to see the talents of all indie developers! You can register for the competition right now by clicking the button below.
