Check out the details below, including info on the number of winners, special awards, and prizing structure (TL;DR - a total of up to $150,000* is up for grabs!).
Join this competition to showcase your skills by building a full world or game using at least one of the new interaction features: Physical hands, Weight Simulation of Held Objects, Player Movement Codeblocks.
To ensure we are inclusive of our diverse types of creators, submissions can be full world experiences or games that bring people together and encourage connectedness.
