Unleash Your Creativity
It’s time to tap into your imagination and demonstrate your game development skills. So, you have complete creative freedom to build any experience that captures the essence of the classic hero vs villain motif.
Also, the possibilities are endless when it comes to bringing the fight between heroes and villains to life. Try to make a fast-action game where a hero races against time to defeat an evil villain.
Or design a strategy game with armies led by heroes and villains facing off in epic war. Additionally, you can build an open world where players complete quests to save villagers from villains.
Compete for Glory on The Sandbox
This is your chance to prove yourself amongst The Sandbox’s vibrant community of creators. So, by participating in game jams, you can win SAND prizes, gain exposure as a developer, enhance your skills, and connect with fellow visionaries.
The stakes are high, with over 50,000 SAND up for grabs. Top winners will also get the opportunity to potentially join the Game Maker Fund. Are you ready to take on the competition?
Key Dates to Remember
The Game Jam runs from August 14 till 27. You’ll need to submit your completed entry by the 27th at 3 PM UTC. Make sure to leave enough time to test your game before the deadline thoroughly.
Voting will take place from August 28th – September 13th. Finally, winners will be revealed at a live awards ceremony on September 23rd at 6 PM UTC. You won’t want to miss this exciting event!
