Futurice calls for eager programmers to battle for the mastery of Space Tyckiting!

This year, regional hackathon winners from London, Berlin, Helsinki, Turku, and Tampere will meet each other in the final event in Berlin organised and sponsored by us. Be ready to travel!

Space Tyckiting is a hexagonal grid based 2D shooter game in which teams battle against each other by developing artificial intelligence bots. Each team has multiple ships. The ships can either move, shoot or scan the battlefield to reveal enemy ships.

Choose your tactics! You can do more in advance and focus on testing and optimization in the battle. There may also be some surprises at the event...

The main focus of the competition is to test your problem solving and logical reasoning skills, not in-depth technology proficiency. You don’t need to be a coder level wizard, but a little more than “Hello world!” skills are required. The participants form teams which will fight against each other.

The game supports clients programmed in JavaScript, Clojure, F#, Haskell, Python, Ruby, Rust, Scala and Swift.

There will be more information about other locations later!
