Core and Metaverse Gaming League have teamed up for a brand new event by launching the Anime Jam contest. Creative developers passionate about anime will have the opportunity to submit their anime and manga-themed games and experiences for this unique competition. The only major requirement is that you must use Core’s development software in order to create what you intend to do. There’s a $50,000 prize pool up for grabs split across four different categories, which you can submit starting March 17, 2022. We’ve got more details on the event for you with the trailer.
Anime Jam developers are encouraged to put their creative skills to the test by paying homage to anime’s iconic styles and themes. Using Core’s creation tools, they can recreate their favorite places and characters or create new gameplay and environments inspired by anime and manga. In addition to competing for the grand prize of $10,000, games and experiences will be judged in the following categories, with each category offering prizes of $5,000 (1st), $2,000 (2nd), and $1,000 (3rd). ):
Mecha – What’s more iconic than mechs and anime? Pay homage to the classics with detailed models, environments or gameplay involving action-packed mechs.
Fantasy – Create a game, beautiful landscape, exciting story or meme based on the fantasy anime trope to channel your inner Isekai!
Slice Of Life – Turn your favorite anime locations into a space where you can actually hang out with your friends, while taking a break from the real world.
Ninjas, Samurai and Magical Girls – A catch-all category for shounen/shoujo lovers! Create a competitive ninja brawler, story-based environment, place to hang out in your favorite magical girl costume, or anything else you can imagine.
In a world first in the Metaverse, the winning anime creations will be showcased to a large audience of gamers at a Metaverse Gaming League live event in March. Players will enjoy anime games and experiences during the event, which will be streamed live on Twitch, with $6,000 being given away to attendees in real time.
