Oculus’ Mobile VR Jam is set to begin on April 13, 2015 with $1,000,000 in available prizes!

Posted by on

In 2013, hundreds of teams came together over three weeks to compete in the first ever VR Jam. Diving headfirst into unknown territory, these developers pioneered hundreds of new VR experiences, including DarkNet, Dumpy, SightLine, and DreadHalls.

This year, participants are challenged to build groundbreaking new content with the Gear VR Innovator Edition. This is an opportunity to collaborate with fellow developers, with $1,000,000 cash in awards and prizes for the best new VR games, apps, and experiences.

You can visit the our official Mobile VR Jam 2015 page on ChallengePost to sign up, find a team, discuss your ideas, and get started. For each weekly milestone, each entry – including yours – will have its progress available for view, so you’ll also be able to give and receive valuable feedback.
Full details here.

We’ll have more news on the Mobile VR Jam in the weeks ahead, so stay tuned. We’re looking forward to seeing what you create!

Let’s Jam!

This is probably the most interesting direction gaming is currently taking, I considered going for a Rift not that long ago (when the newest version surfaced) but decided to wait a little longer.

What I'm looking forward too:
One of the biggest and most exciting uses for me will be race games. I've yet to get the bucket seat but I plan to have the wheel, pedals, seat etc all set up and using a VR with that will be magnificent. I saw a video test for it a while back and can't wait to experience it myself, Here's one (Random video, I just googled for it) that shows how I'll use it most.
