The Sandbox partners with Warner Music to launch a music-themed game jam to close out 2022. Users can compete for 30,000 SAND in rewards! The rewards are split amongst the best games and social experiences. The Game Jam is open and the deadline to submit is January 2nd, 2023 at 3 pm UTC.
What is the Warner Music Game Jam?
The Warner Music Game Jam is a unique opportunity for users to share their love of music in the form of a game. As such, entrants are to create a game experience around the theme of music. This can be a social experience, or a game with a storyline. Furthermore, players can include assets they have made themselves, through The Sandbox’s Game Maker software. Additionally, submissions must include playability and be at least 5 minutes long.
What is the Jam Judging Criteria?
There are 4 judging categories, each carrying 25 points. These are Overall Idea, Game Design, Creativity, and Playability. Finally, there is a 5th category, Wow Factor, which grants up to 25 bonus points. Not to mention, there’s $30,000 SAND being divvied up between the Top 10 Spots.
When Does The Game Jam Begin?
The Game Jam between Warner Music and the Sandbox celebrates music as we move into the new year. Therefore, there are extra incentives for players who submit their entries before the January 2nd deadline. Then, voting will take place from January 3rd to January 27th. The winners will be announced on February 4th, 2023.
