    Why choose HTML5?

    HTML5 has become very popular in recent years. This technology has many advantages. For example, applications built on it do not need to be installed on devices. A user simply needs to install one application, say, a social network in which he can communicate, view the news feed and play mobile games written in all the same HTML5.

    Most of the development teams for such games face the key problem of developing their products - marketing, since the competition on gaming platforms that support HTML5 is quite high. Classmates try to support game developers, allowing them to promote applications on their gaming platform for free. Since the beginning of 2018, mobile game developers on social networks have earned more than 100 million rubles, and over the past year the number of game launches on Odnoklassniki mobile platform has doubled to 350 million per day.


    You can take part in the championship in two categories: Pro and New Star.

    Pro Nomination is designed for experienced developers and studios. They can port their own games from other platforms to Odnoklassniki. The three best games will get free traffic to a certain number of game installations on the social network:

    1. the winner will receive 1 million installations;
    2. second place - 500,000 installations;
    3. third place - 250,000 installations.

    1. 300 000 rubles for the first place;
    2. 200 000 rubles - for the second;
