'SAND Play Game Jam’ The Game Design Contest by The Sandbox
The Sandbox will partner with arts and sports company Round21 for the upcoming game design contest; SAND Play Game Jam. The contest allows creators to design an experience based on a modern, historical, or fictional sport, where they can choose how players interact with the sport. This means that players don’t need to compete within the sport, but can be event managers,students of the sport, or whatever role the creator assigns to them!
SAND Play Game Jam starts on December 24th, 2021,with the target to finish and submit admissions being January 9th,2022. Voting will take place by an exterior panel of The Sandbox’s staff andRound21’s team between, 10th and 17th of January, with the results being declared on January 22nd. Anyone eligible to create an account on The Sandbox can enter SAND Play Game Jam, and the contest will also allow team/studio collaborations.
The contest will have a prize pool of 50,000 $SAND being spread between winners, with 1st place receiving a whopping 20,000 $SAND, 2nd place receiving 10,000 $SAND, 3rdplace receiving 6,000 $SAND, and those placed 4th-10th receiving2,000 $SAND.
Designs must be created using The Sandbox’s Game Maker software, adhering to a sporty theme, and have some kind of playability. Being inspiration from existing sports is encouraged, however reproducing them will lead in disqualification, as well as any spamming of low-quality experiences just to increase the chances of being placed 4th-10th.
