Today, Oculus VR has announced that it will be hosting its own Mobile VR Jam 2015 event that offers developers $1,000,000 in cash prizes for the most innovative VR games and applications developed specifically for the Gear VR Innovator Edition—which Samsung created in partnership with Oculus.
The $1,000,000 prize pool will be split between two different tracks—one for VR games, and the other for VR apps and experiences. ‘Platinum’ prize winners competing in the VR game category will take home $200,000, while $100,000 will go to those in the VR apps and experience category. The remaining prize pool will be awarded amongst multiple Gold, Silver, and Bronze level winners ranging from $100,000 to $10,000.
According to Oculus, “The Mobile VR Jam is an opportunity to build groundbreaking new experiences in collaboration with other passionate VR pioneers, and win cash prizes for innovative uses of VR-specific interactions and pushing the medium forward.”
