Ultimate Game Changers Contest: Celebrating the launch of Lion Studios

by Rafael Vivas on Jul 12, 2018

The core mission for AppLovin is to be the fabric that connects app developers of all sizes with their ideal customers around the world. In order to achieve this goal, we are announcing a new media division of AppLovin called Lion Studios.

To celebrate the launch of Lion Studios, AppLovin is hosting the Ultimate Game Changers Contest. We’ll be awarding $300,000 in cash prizes to the top four mobile games that show the most potential to become the next chart-topper. We’ll be judging games on their virality and stickiness.

We are excited to launch Lion Studios to further AppLovin’s mission of finding great apps and sharing them with users around the globe. Since its start in March 2018, Lion Studios has helped drive four #1 overall free apps in the App Store, has had thirteen games hit the top 10, and has had sixteen games hit the top 20. Collectively, these games have driven over 200 million downloads so far. You can read more about the games we’ve published on our success stories page.

Think your game has what it takes to be the next big mobile hit? Head over to the Ultimate Game Changers Contest page. The contest starts today and submissions will be accepted through August 13, 2018. Winners will be notified directly and the results will be posted on our site on September 13.

With Lion Studios and the Ultimate Game Changers Contest, we’re excited to help empower indie mobile game developers and studios unlock their full potential. We can’t wait to see what great games are waiting to be discovered.

Rafael Vivas is President of Lion Studios.
