HackFiction by WhoHack

2015-09-26 (Saturday) @ Startup Incubator, Rijeka, Croatia

We were full yet again and as expected with all the creatives at one place, the atmosphere was awesome. We had 8 teams/projects out of which we had games, mobile apps, websites and desktop apps. It was not easy to pick the best, everyone had a completed project and they were all great! That is why we decided to award everybody for their work, everybody won the Story Cubes game. We even tested the game on the after-party where stories went a bit let's just say "dirty". :)

Since everybody is a winner, here are the selected top few:

#1 Baggins

Team: Martina Vasilj, Sergey Varlamov
Prize: 2x R2D2 Projection clock, 2x RiCon tickets, 2x Story Cubes

Baggins shipping is a corporate website with an information about a shipping and service company with traditions with over several generations. Founded by proud ancestor of Baggings clan - Bilbo Baggings - it evolved over time to offer various services and more flexible rates. After departing from middle-earth, current Baggins CEO - Frodo Baggings contacted us with a request to represent his company services in today's internet. Following his requests we've prepared a landing page with relevant information and a shipping calculator which includes invaluable calculation of confrontation probability in dangerous lands of middle earth. The calculator allows you to take advantage over various outcomes during shipment of your goods and suggests most flexible rates for a given route and level of danger.

It can be anything that runs on any platform like a smartphone, desktop computer, game console or even the smartwatch for all we care (that would be cool though).

You can interpret the theme however you wish: create a game, a digital picture book, an RPG dice roller, an interactive map to the Middle-earth, Westeros or the Delta Quadrant, it's up to you and your imagination.

Best teams will be awarded with a surprise package full of geeky, tech goodies. We won’t spoil it, but let’s just say that the Force is strong in these...
