Top entries from the Decentralized category Challenges in js13kGames 2022

The eleventh edition of the js13kGames competition was also the second year of the Decentralized category - here are the results and the winners of all three Challenges: from NEAR Protocol, OP Games, and the Arcadia one.

The overall results were presented live during our Awards Ceremony, and the results for the Decentralized category were already announced.

Those were voted on by our dedicated judges: Aliaksandr ‘Sasha’ Hudzilin and Vlad Grichina (both NEAR), Paul Gadi and Taufik Sani (both OP Games / Arcadia), Daniel Keller and Tim Sulmone (both Flux), Anurag Banerjee (Game7), and Will Cove (Mina).

Now it’s time to look at the results of the Challenges in the Decentralized category - the prizes for all three added up to about $8000 total, including 6 Arcadians NFTs.

NEAR Protocol Challenge

The first Challenge was from NEAR Protocol - the main task to complete was to implement various decentralized features using NEAR Protocol technologies, specifically NEAR.js library. Based on those requirements Aliaksandr ‘Sasha’ Hudzilin and Vlad Grichina selected the best entries - top 10 is listed below:

1. Deadly Affection by Martin Tale
2. Hades Defence by ViLPy
3. Hang by a Thread by Johnonym
4. The Neatness by Mark Vasilkov
5. Cooking for Skully by Gheja
6. PUZZLATORY by Xem
7. World of Emojis by Curtastic
8. Death Tournament by Thiago Romão Barcala
9. Ghost Smash by Kent
10. Exploring Egyptian Tombs by Musplay

Prizes worth 1000 $NEAR total are going to be paid to the authors, from 400 $NEAR to the first place all the way down to 30 $NEAR to the 10th.

OP Games Challenge

The second Challenge revolved around OP Games, and more specifically: following any of the Decentralize The Metaverse article suggestions in the entries submitted to the competition. Paul Gadi and Taufik Sani selected top 5 games that participated in this Challenge:

1. Hades Defence by ViLPy
2. Cooking for Skully by Gheja
3. Death Tournament by Thiago Romão Barcala
4. World of Emojis by Curtastic
5. PUZZLATORY by Xem

Prizes included 1500 USDC total and three Arcadians NFTs, with the first place getting 1000 USDC and the fifth 50 USDC.

Arcadia Challenge

The third Challenge, also coming from the OP Games folks who owns the Arcadia platform, expected the entries to align with the arcade theme, use Arcadians NFTs, or implement Arcadia SDK. Three games were awarded by Paul and Taufik:

1. Deadly Affection by Martin Tale
2. Hades Defence by ViLPy
3. Hang by a Thread by Johnonym

Same prizes applied - by following the requirements you could win 1000 USDC for the first place, with 1500 USDC in the pool.

Summary

I’m really happy to see developers experimenting with new technologies, and companies wanting to support them in such a journey. I can’t wait to see what Challenges we will have next year, and what games will be built in the Decentralized category. I hope to see you all in 2023!
