TL;DR – It’s a software client that allows any web developer to add features to PC games.
Overwolf is a platform that was built to make playing games more easy, fun and social. Technically, it’s a C++ engine which allows the integration of web apps written in HTML and JS, into client games. It has a client, AKA the “Overwolf client”, and a store, AKA the “Overwolf Appstore”. In a sense, it’s an advanced version of Steam’s shift+tab, built on top of an open platform.
With Overwolf, every web developer can add features to their favorite games, in the form of a single page web-apps. These web-apps can do whatever web-apps can normally do, but they get a major buff with the Overwolf SDK. With the Overwolf SDK, a web app can call functions like screen capture, or get notified in real-time when an important game event occurred, like a kill, a death, gold was earned and more. 100 CS after 10 minutes? We know if it happened or not, in real-time!
Who are we?
We’re a bunch of gamers and geeks, passionate about creating content for the games that we play. This is our anthem. In this event we’re focusing on one of the games we love the most: League of Legends! In Overwolf, Three times a week at 2:30pm, comes “Game Time!”… We stop all coding and development work to play the games we love. We end up playing League 95% of the time ☺. We can’t wait to see what cool ideas would come from the community, and look forward to some great apps that would make playing League even more fun, easy or social!
LOLWIZ + OVERWOLF ROCKS!
Some Overwolf apps already make thousands of dollars a month from advertising. Apart from creating something wonderful that will enhance the experience of millions of players, you could also make a living for yourself. Take a look at LoLwiz as an example - it became the full time job of its developers.
In order to participate in the challenge you must sign up and submit your app by December 4th. Sign up early, to get direct email updates. You can find additional information about the submission process and Overwolf apps at developers.overwolf.com. Any submissions after December 4th will be disqualified from the challenge. Be sure to read the full terms!
Please submit your first draft by October 23rd before you start coding, so that we can make sure the app meets Riot’s guidelines. This first draft should consist of:
TL;DR - your app cannot look like it is a part for the LoL UI, and cannot make real time recommendations based on how the game is progressing. For example, it is fine to create a builds app and show general big-data statistics, but it is not ok to create an app that suggest items that counter what your opponents build in real time.
Further, Riot Games were kind enough to allow the League of Legends community to use the League of Legends API to develop cool things for the game. But before you proceed with your Overwolf app development, it is crucial to read the “Legal Jibber Jabber” document and the “API Terms & Conditions” to see if your app idea stands within the rules and guidelines of Riot Games.
TL;DR - go to developers.overwolf.com. Craft great apps using your imagination and coding skills. Fuse these with the new Overwolf media API, exclusive game events, and LOL API's and you get a great wonderful product. Remember, your creation must be an Overwolf app to participate in the event. To make things fun(ctional), use the web-based SDK, if you're into .NET, or C++, you can create an extension to support your Overwolf app (you can even use it to easily port existing apps). Last but not least, you can also use any other web API you may want.
Overwolf added new, exclusive, live event for League of Legends using image recognition and other graphic analysis methods. This will allow you to build even cooler things! Here are a few examples of the newly added events:
