What can i build?
Whatever your imagination allows! Create all kinds of interactive content, from a multiplayer game or interactive art installation to a virtual shop.see some examples
Introducing SDK 6.3
An integrated art pipeline
SDK + Builder
We recommend using the Builder, Decentraland's visual editor, as a starting point for your art pipeline. Import and position pre-made, pre-loaded custom 3D models. Export the scene to dive into the code and make it fun!Watch tutorial

Key Game Jam info
What is Decentraland?
Decentraland is a decentralized virtual world powered by the Ethereum blockchain. The finite 3D virtual space is divided into parcels called LAND. Each plot of LAND is permanently owned by a member of the community, giving the owner full control over what they create and display in that location. As players explore the virtual world, the content uploaded to Decentraland is rendered on its corresponding land parcel.
The game jam will begin on September the 16th, and last two weeks. Winners will be announced one week after the end of the game jam.
I'm a game developer, but I don’t know much about blockchain.
You don’t need to go down the blockchain rabbit hole to build a scene. Just know that the 3D scene you build will be tied to one or several tokens on the blockchain, which represent parcels of LAND. You’re also encouraged to explore different ways in which the code of your scene can interact with other data on the blockchain, but it is not a requirement.
Do I need to own LAND to build something?
Nope! Anyone can participate in the Game Jam. If you create something great, our team or other landowners will be able to upload your scene into the world. Also, 200 LANDs will be given out as rewards to the top participants.
Do I have to share my scene’s source code publicly to participate?
You can simply share an interactive preview of your working scene, built using the Decentraland SDK.
How do I submit my Scenes?
Once you're happy with your creation and are ready to unleash it on the world, you can fill in this form (you'll need to log into or quickly set up a Typeform account).
In the form you have a couple of options:
1. Deploy your Scene to Now
Now is a platform that you can use to deploy content and projects. We created a blog post about it here. Put the link to your deployed scene in the relevant field on the form.
2. Alternatively, if you'd prefer Decentraland to handle the publishing of your scene to our LAND pool, just add the link to your code (either on GitHub, Dropbox or similar service) where it says so on the form.
If you're still stuck, visit our Game Jam channel on Discord.
