First-Ever Friskies Hackathon for Cat Loving Developers Announced
 
 

You can program and love cats? Purina Friskies just called out the first Friskies Hackathon to develop games for cats.

Besides your kids also your cat want now some iPad time. Purina Friskies just released a new iPad game for cats called Happy Wings. Happy Wings welcomes cats to an electronic garden full of flittering critters, including a charming hummingbird, an irresistible moth and a life-size little dragonfly, bringing the richness and fun of the great outdoors inside. The birds, moths and dragonflies dance across the screen to attract the cat’s attention. When the cat captures a certain number of creatures, the setting changes and the game becomes more challenging with quicker patterns and multiple creatures appearing on screen simultaneously.

With the new cat game release, Friskies also announces the Friskies Hackaton. 

 

The Friskies Hackathon takes place March 23, and 24, 2013, on the Amplify campus in Venice, Calif. Up to 75 inspiring tech and creative game programmers will work in teams of up to five during this one-of-a-kind event. Three prizes will be awarded with one grand prize winner taking home $15,000. Second place is awarded $3,000 and third place is awarded $2,000. Additionally, the grand prize winner’s beta version of their game may be further evaluated and could potentially be developed by the Friskies brand to be included within its existing gaming portfolio.

Judges for the first-ever Friskies Hackathon include one of the top names in game development, Amir Rahimi, who was general manager of Zynga's Los Angeles studio for two years before leaving earlier this year to help found a gaming start-up. He previously worked as a producer at Electronic Arts. Also joining the judging panel are Amplify co-founder Jeff Solomon, Fosforus creative director Eric Sutherland and Friskies assistant brand manager Alison Coburn.
