Hansoft sponsors Swedish Game Awards 2011

Swedish Game Awards started in 2002 as a sub-project to Excitera, the student-driven entrepreneurship association at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. The competition has since grown to become Sweden’s largest game development competition, targeting students from schools all over the country.

"We're really glad to have Hansoft sponsor us with such a great tool. Developing games demands great planning nowadays and Hansoft will definitely give the participants the tools needed for easier development and increase the productivity and quality of the projects," said Ronald Pompa, Project Manager at Swedish Game Awards 2011.

Hansoft is an integrated solution for agile and lean development, collaborative scheduling, real-time reporting, bug tracking / QA, workload coordination, portfolio and document management, used by the most demanding software developers in Europe, Asia, Australia and North America.

“It is not only fun to be working with young and upcoming talent. We have seen great benefits for all parties when previous winners of Hansoft-sponsored student awards have grown commercially successful publisher-signed projects. It’s a win-win situation. Swedish Game Awards has a reputation of high quality and I’m excited to follow the teams and see the final expo in June,” said Patric Palm, Hansoft CEO.

All participants are free to use Hansoft during the competition and members of the twelve finalist teams are awarded one Hansoft license each, including 10 users to use for projects for a year. The final winners of the four categories are announced during the awards ceremony in Stockholm in June.
