Nexon recently announced ‘Developer Wings 2022 (Wings 2022)’, a partnership program for developers conducted on its content production and service platform ‘PROJECT MOD’, has begun.
‘Wings 2022’ is a program that provides various benefits, including development support, so that potential developers can create novel content with the production tools provided by ‘PROJECT MOD’. In fact, domestic and overseas developers with a history of releasing games in various genres are selected after screening and participate in this event.
The Developer Wings 2022 competition comes with a decent prizepool
On February 22, Nexon will host an online orientation for the final chosen “Wings 2022” participants to go over the specifics of the program’s rules and advantages. If participants produce content for “PROJECT MOD” and disclose it publicly through tasks given in stages by November 14, they will be eligible to receive a development subsidy of up to 10 million won ( ~ $7600).
Following that, Nexon chose outstanding works from among the “PROJECT MOD” contents made available through “Wings 2022,” and at the conclusion of the year hosted an awards event, giving out the Grand Prize to one firm and $64k for Best Prize (2 companies, $38k each) The total prize money for the Excellence Award (4 firms) will be $183k. Each company will receive $7.6k.
As a result, Nexon will launch the “PROJECT MOD” development partnership programme on a grand scale with a budget of $1.14 million, which will cover development help for each “Wings 2022” participant, awards for outstanding work, and marketing support costs given as prizes for victors.
The ‘PROJECT MOD’ developer centre, forum, and Discord will all be actively used during the event duration to actively share development know-how among participants. In September, there will also be the “Live Wings Day” occasion, when attendees can speak with the “PROJECT MOD” development room in person.
The “PROJECT MOD” metaverse platform, in contrast, allows anyone to freely create, host, and play content. It offers a straightforward production function for simple content generation, and if programming is employed, more complex development is also feasible.
