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!

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.

Key dates

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.
