Enjoy the May Edition of the Kolibri Games Newsletter. This is where we review the events of the past weeks and keep you updated on recent company and product milestones.
This month, we reached our first milestone in the spring edition of our internal Event Mine Badge Challenge. Over the course of a quarter, all Kolibris collect the badges that we earn by participating in events in Idle Miner Tycoon or Idle Factory Tycoon. An Elite Badge is worth five points, a Gold Badge four, etc. The scoreboard is continuously updated and we managed to score our first reward: an App Store voucher, for that premium game or cool skin you always wanted.
The challenge has been a fun way to exchange strategies and get excited about our own games again.
We Appeared In
The Kolibris were still working from home this month. Our QA Lead Sebastian talked to Pocketgamer.biz about his QA journey, how he got into the industry, useful advice for aspiring QA Testers and how remote work is affecting his team and his job.
This month, our Idle Miner Tycoon team worked hard on re-working our backend authentication and integrating new data events. The team also improved our cheater detection measures and integrated push notifications for our CRM platform.
Kolibri Games Events
Although some of our favorite events this year were canceled to ensure the general safety of the public, the current situation has inspired us and many others to explore more digital ways of bringing people together.
We still have several open positions in our Engineering and Data Teams. Have a look at the job descriptions here. So, if you know someone, who knows someone, who knows someone… you know the deal.
