Visiarc wins Hackathon contest at Nokia World for Windows Phone game 'Duudle'

Visiarc, a company well known for their enterprise software is the winner of the 2011 Hackathon competition at Nokia World for their game called "Duudle", which also happens to be their first Windows Phone application. Duudle is a time-based, multiplayer game that can send push notifications to your opponents playing the game on other phones (think of it like a mobile version of Pictionary).

The top four submissions to the Hackathon competition were shown in live demos on stage at the end of Nokia World 2011 today in London.

The competitors had only 40 hours to create their app from an idea submitted to the Nokia IdeasProject, and they had the opportunity to submit their app for use on up to three platforms: Windows Phone, Qt, and Series 40.

The winners of this year’s Hackathon will share more than 150,000 euros in cash and prizes - the winning app from Visiarc receives 50,000 euros.

More details about the winning apps - and photos from the event - will be posted online soon!
