    What makes my game unique?

    Hook and Run is all composed of unique features. We were able to pinpoint the uniqueness of Hook and Run after the audience reaction to it once it was released. Since numbers speak for themselves, Hook and Run achieved over 100K installs on Android and over 17K on IOS within one month of publishing it and from a 1 minute Youtube Ad. Since then , gamers have been posting videos about Hook and Run on Youtube to share their experience. Hook and Run has a unique animation, design and gameplay. The gulf and specifically the Saudi Arabian culture was the inspiration behind Hook and Run theme and game design. We have chosen the theme based on our futuristic view and numbers indicate that the MENA region will be a huge market for mobile games and specifically Saudi Arabia.

    Why could my game win an award?

    Hook and Run is an Arabic game developed by Arabic young team of developers and designers, Hook and Run tells a story about culture, and we made sure to contextualise it in Arabic, to show the audience that Arabic developers can produce high quality mobile games that can compete with global game developers. Winning the award will show that Arabic talents do exist, and Hook and Run will tell the rest of the story.
