Oculus Rift mods already infiltrating popular games, Oculus VR and IndieCade are teaming up to promote a special game jam in August. The VR Jam will pit independent developers against one another in a contest to create the best games designed explicitly for the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset.
The jam will be separated into two categories. The first is the "Selected Developers" competition, which will consist of 10 "hand-picked" independent developers. The "Open Call" competition is open to all comers. "Over $50,000 in prizes" is up for grabs, with the winning developers in each category taking home $10,000 each. The winners will also have their work showcased at this year's IndieCade festival, taking place October 3-6 in Los Angeles.
VR Jam begins on August 2 and ends on August 25, with milestones expected from developers on August 9 and 16. Those interested in competing can sign up on the VR Jam website.
