French video game developer and publisher, Voodoo, has announced the launch of the Voodoo Academy, a learning program designed to nurture the next generation of developers to build, test, and improve hyper-casual mobile games.
The developer revealed this on their official website stating that participants will be able to join live Q&A sessions and presentations with mentors from both their Publishing team and studios with years of valuable experience in hyper-casual game development.
“We are delighted to be able to share our knowledge of developing and launching successful hyper-casual games.” Voodoo co-founder, Arthur Duvergne said
“We believe newcomers to hyper-casual can bring fresh ideas, start new trends and become key members of a great community. We hope that the experience-driven input we’ve shared with the Voodoo Academy will help fellow developers to succeed”.
Voodoo Academy Lead, Stanislas Marchand, added: “We believe that with the right training from Voodoo experts, budding hyper-casual game developers can gain years of experience in only a few months.
“With Voodoo Academy, we’re putting this belief into practice by offering a free-to-access pathway for students to learn, share, and build long-lasting success with Voodoo’s guidance.”
“We’ve always been passionate about supporting our partners, and the Voodoo Academy is a true embodiment of our commitment to this.” He concluded
The program is designed to last up to one year after you sign up, with regularly uploaded training courses, dedicated sessions with trainers, and interactions with the developer’s teams.
Participants who complete the program then have the opportunity to join the community of studios as an official game-making studio.
The program will kick off with a live stream on April 14th, 2022 and will feature Blue Monkey Studio, which will share its tips for a successful start in hyper-casual game development.
