LAST CALL! Huqiao's first global game competition


We want to support game devs & development studios! Enter our competition for a chance to win $10 000 for your game.

Our mission

What brought us all to HQ?

Love for games.

“Amber bridge” - this is what Huqiao (琥桥) actually means. Our company was created to connect Western developers with Chinese gamers - and we helped many amazing games find their fans in this difficult market.

Now we want to further support people who make them. There is no other industry as passionate as gamedev, and in current difficult times we want to help one chosen team to finish their dream project. With mass layoffs and studio closures, sharing your creativity and reminding ourselves why we got here in the first place can help us feel less alone.

So this is our story.

What about yours?

Enter our competition to win $10 000 for your project. We are looking for non-released PC titles from beginner solo developers & teams with less than 3 titles published. Submitted games will be judged by their playability, artistic value, potential & of course: how fun they are to play.

UPDATE: final deadline for submissions extended until 28.06.24.


  • Applications close: 28.06.2024, 00:00 CET.
  • Judging: 1.07 - 12.07.24.
