What are the Entry Guidelines?
Participants must create their designs in the Game Maker software using the assets they created. The entry must contain some playability, such as quests and missions. It must also be unique and not a copy of existing gaming experiences.
Participants must avoid spamming the gallery with different low-quality experiences to make it to the 4th-10th positions, as doing so will result in entry disqualification.
Your entry may become ineligible if you do not follow the correct steps in completing your submission. The Sandbox and OnChainMonkey’s staff members will judge the entries and select the winners.
Criteria for Submission
Participants must design a game of at least five minutes duration. They must use a minimum of twenty-five assets and follow the theme/storyline. The submitted experience must be created after the start date as any experience created for previous game jams are not eligible.
As mentioned, the Game Jam entry submission starts on October 5 and the deadline for submission is October 30, at 3:00 pm UTC. The submission collation and voting will hold from October 31 to November 25, and the platform will announce the results on December 3.
The game platform revealed that it will use the Game Maker Gallery feature as the form for submissions. The details of the link to the submission platform can be found on the game platform.

The prize pool for the OnChainMonkey Game Jam contest is 30,000 $SAND. The Sandbox will distribute this fund among the top ten entries. The highlights of the distribution are enumerated below:
