We are proud to be hosting the "Bring your A-game" hackathon with a total prize pool of $1,000,000 USD to let developers and creatives come together and build the future of gaming. We are looking for innovative, funky games that bring the best game mechanics to fruition.

- Game development tooling

- NFT-based games 

- Metaverse environments

- Play-to-earn games

### Game Studio Track

We are also hosting a separate game studio track that's only accessible to game studios and indie game developers. The game studio track will award each successful submission with a $250,000 USD bounty if they meet the submission and quality criteria. With a hard cap of four successful submissions (total bounty $1 million USD).
