Once again, we at Bit1 are choosing the best student game of the year! Get your team together and enter the competition!


What’s Bit1?
 

Bit1 competition gathers game developers and their teams together to showcase their talent and their games. The Bit1 jury is made of game industry professionals, and they will be judging and giving feedback to competing games. The winning team will get to go to the Finnish Game Awards and pitch at the main stage. Competitors will get invaluable contacts to the industry and to each other.

 

Competition 

Competition starts with preliminaries in April. Teams will give 3 min pitches, 2 min Q&A and afterwards judges will playtest each competing game individually.

From Prebits two best teams will move forward to the finals held in May. The teams going to the final will get personal mentoring from one of the PreBit’s judges to improve their game before the finals.

This year the PreBit in Rovaniemi will take place on 23rd April, at Digi & Game Center (time coming).
