The NYU Game Center will be an official site for the VR Jam, a long-format, worldwide game jam presented by Oculus and IndieCade! Participants will build innovative virtual reality games and experiences designed specifically for the Oculus Rift. Each grand prize winner receives a $10,000 cash prize, a trip to demo their game at IndieCade Festival 2013, and an invitation to visit Oculus HQ to meet the Oculus team.
Teams will have three weeks, August 9th-August 25th, to work on their designs, and will be able to use the NYU Game Center’s Oculus Rift to play-test. Visit the jam site for more information on rules, prizes, and important dates.
Site Location: 721 Broadway, 9th Floor
