Guidelines for Entries
Each participant must design their entry with the Game Maker software and the entry must include the original assets created by the participant. Your entry must have an element of playability to it, including mission and quests, among others.
All entries must be the original creators of the participants. Each entry must be unique and not copied directly from any existing projects. There may be similarities but should not be exact copies.
You are also not allowed to spam the gallery with several low-quality experiences in a bid to fit into the fourth to tenth position. If you do so, your entries will be disqualified. If you do not complete the submission steps appropriately, your entry can become ineligible.
The Sandbox staff will evaluate and judge all entries. For your entry, the game length must be at least five minutes and you must use a minimum of 25 assets. Make sure to follow the theme/storyline and your experience must be designed after the start date and not previously.
You must submit your entry through the given link, which is available through the official social media platform of The Sandbox.
