- First prize — $1million, minimum guarantee — For all games that exceed 5M downloads on iOS US in the first four months following the full launch;
- Second prize — $200,000, minimum guarantee — for any launched and confirmed game during or as a result of the competition;
- Third prize — $10,000 — For all games hitting a $0.20 CPI and 30% D1 retention on Android, or $0.30 CPI and 30% D1 on iOS;
- Referral prize — $100,000 — For referring a studio with a confirmed hit game during or after the competition.
The winners will be selected by February 11, 2022. All winners will sign publishing agreements with Voodoo.
In addition to the monetary prizes, all participants will get support from Voodoo’s publishing and product teams throughout the duration of the competition. The publisher will also share marketing insights and hold livestreams to help participating studios build and develop their prototypes.
