Hey everyone, and welcome to ManoMotion's GameJam - ManoMoji. This is a week long event that will take place between 16th-23th of November. The theme of this event is AR Filters that include/interact/use HANDS, we call those ManoMojies. Our goal as a community this time, is to explore the creative aspect of visualizations and interaction that compliment the use of hands. This is a 100% online event and though we highly support collaboration - please remember to keep distances and be safe. By the end of the GameJam, the judges of the event will go through your submissions and we will announce the top 3 entries. More info is available below.
Most people - probably including you! - want to make apps, but struggle to find the time to get started, let alone stay motivated for long periods of time. Therefore, we highly encourage you to make use of our development community and post your progress often on Social Media (Our community manager would be super happy if you used the hashtag #ManoMotion).
Each submission will be evaluated based on the following Criteria:
Composition - How appealing the filter is in terms of Visuals, Audio, Feedback.
Creative Use of ManoMotion Feature(s) - Wow..! this is really cool, how come we never thought of that?
Storytelling- How easy is for the user to follow the instructions/logic of your filter?
The judges may decide that they want to try your app first hand (thats a great sign) so make sure that you leave your main scene in good shape.

Matchmaking: Yo are encouraged to work in pairs for this event. Getting to know an other community member is going to benefit you immensely. An other programmer, an other artist, an other ManoMotioner :D. Networking is always a plus.

Of course our Discord channel is always available for getting to know other community members.

What qualifies as an AR Hand Filter- ManoMoji? Inspired by popular Social Media, an AR Hand Filter is a small experience that conveys a message to its audience. From the magical spells to the puppet faces and balloon poping, a ManoMoji is a short-duration experience that has a clear use case of hands. Here is some Examples of those experiences Squish Toys AR Butterflies AR Spells and many many more!
What tools should I use? You should use Unity Engine (we recommend 2019.4 LTS) and SDK Community Edition. If you choose to include Positional Tracking, ARFoundation (Unity Package Manager) and SDK Community Edition - ARFoundation support, are your go to options.
How can I get access to the ManoMotion SDK Community Edition Tools? You can get access to SDK Community Edition and SDK Community Edition - ARFoundation Support in www.manomotion.com/products
Where can I find the documentation? The documentation for SDK Community Edition is available at https://www.manomotion.com/documentation/
Can I get some more help? Of course! Our video tutorials are available in YouTube
Do I need a license or BundleID to use this software? We have provided a free license in the UnityPackage that matches the BundleID so you don't have to generate a new one.
Can I use external Assets/Frameworks/Music? Sure thing! Make sure that you respect the copyright licenses and ManoMotion will definitely do the same.
Can I run/debug my ManoMotion project in Unity Editor? No, the ManoMotion SDK Community Edition needs to be compiled to a mobile Device (iOs or Android) in order for it to be operational. If you press play in the editor, you will not get any hand detection.
Can ManoMotion be supported to my device? As a rule of thumb we suggest to use a device that is newer than Samsung s8(Android) and iPhone 8(iOS). https://www.manomotion.com/privacy_policy/
