Submission guidelines At a minimum submissions should include the following items:
NOTE: Submitting the same project across multiple hackathons will lead to disqualification
Only projects or features (preferably in a separate branch) built specifically for the respective hackathon will be considered for prizes.
Broken links may disqualify the project from the judging process.
Using an IPFS HTTP gateway doesn’t count as building on top of IPFS. Exclusively basing your submission on that does not make you eligible for prizes.
Judges: Filecoin Team
ChainSafe’s gaming SDK, web3.unity, helps developers build games with blockchain support and NFT-backed game assets. The SDK works on any EVM-compatible blockchain like Nervos, and allows reads/writes and simplified login across browser, mobile, and desktop platforms.
web3.unity recently added support for minting NFTs directly within a game, using a drag-and-drop Unity prefab. Users can claim ERC 721 and ERC 1155 NFTs once they accomplish in-game actions, rewarding them for play.
The ChainSafe Gaming team wants to see what you can build with this new minting functionality. This hackathon prize is for the best game, interactive experience, or developer tool built using the web3.unity minter.
** All submissions to this bounty must use this SDK. Special consideration will be given to projects that use web3.unity minter prefab feature.
The top three submissions will each win $500 CAD cash (fiat) or equal value in crypto (ETH).
The BlockJam Game Jam 2022 will take place between:
Start - June 20th (Monday) 8:00 AM, YOUR LOCAL TIME
End - July 5th (Monday) 8:00 AM, YOUR LOCAL TIME
(Over the years its been hard to get everyone on the same time zone, so now we just dont bother.)
Judged by your peers, the community (and yourself). The community will have a chance to play all the attendees' games.
Rank is judged by:
* Bounties will be judged by the team who set the bounty separately.
In order for games to be judged, they must be easily playable by the community.
PC and WebGL are recommended.
Live chat and communication during the jam will be held on Nervos Discord.
Everyone is welcome to join (not just participants). The channel is both technical and social.

The Nervos Network Blockchain has the right to reject any winners on the grounds of code of conduct misconduct, breaking of rules listed on the itch.io Blockjam 2022 landing page, or legal regulations. The next highest project will then become the winner and so forth down the line.
