ELEKS’ virtual reality project, a web-based 3D holiday game, gets further industry recognition by winning the People's Champ vote in a reputed international award program, the Pixel Awards

March 23, 2016 – Lviv, Ukraine - ELEKS, a trusted global organization that provides offshore, full-cycle software product engineering services, is pleased to announce that the company’s recent digital project, a multi-device WebGL virtual reality game, has been named the People's Champ Winner by the 10th annual Pixel Awards.

Based on the votes of the digital savvy audience, Back2Pack became the absolute leader in the Experimental category. Developed as the company’s interactive greeting for the winter holiday season at ELEKS’ R&D Lab, the game is an ingenious technical solution. To get the most fun out of the virtual reality experience, the user inserts a smartphone into Google Cardboard to serve as a screen when the second smartphone is used as a game controller.

Each year, the Pixel Awards rewards and elevates exceptional design and technology that help inspire and advance the digital production industry. A team of highly reputed experts selects the winners in 21 categories that cover multiple domains of digital creation in life and business. In addition to the 21 winners, each year the Pixel Awards announces 21 People’s Champs - one in every category, voted on by the web community.

Oleg Gasioshyn, Creative Director at ELEKS and the author of the idea, commented on the achievement, “Our work has been recently recognized by industry experts, when the game was named the FWA Mobile Site of the Day, and now we are delighted that it is appreciated by the general public as well. Alongside our goal to deliver solutions that combine technological excellence and real business value, we are motivated to make things our customers and end-users love”.
