Registration for the contest must be completed by 30th May 2019. Developers can apply as an individual or as a team, and there is no limit on the number of members per team. Your game must run on the PCHAIN mainnet.

Each team need to submit a video which will introduce the team, the project, idea, and why it will attract people using their game. The video also need to include a sample run of the game itself, complete with tutorial for beginners. The length of the video should not more than 15 mins. You can upload the video to Youtube or other similar service and send us the link. You must submit your video link by latest 30th June, 2019.

Judging Criteria

55% of the total score will be judged by the team.

The criteria are:

1) Innovation and Creativity

2) Gameplay and Design

3) Coding and Security

Community Voting

45% of the votes are from the community. Any holder with a minimum of 10,000 PI will be allowed to vote for the candidate of his/her choice. One vote per wallet only, and a minimum of 10,000 PI must be in the wallet from 1st of May until the final award is given, or otherwise, the vote will be discarded.

The formula to calculate the vote for each candidate is:

Let’s say, we have only 3 candidates (for easy illustration). Candidate A has 1000 votes, Candidate B has 2000 votes and Candidate C has 1500 votes. So, the total will be 4500 votes.

Candidate A will receive 1000/4500*0.45= 0.1 from the community.
Candidate B will receive 2000/4500*0.45= 0.2 from the community.
Candidate C will receive 1500/4500*0.45= 0.15 from the community.

Team judgement:

A few officials from the team will be assigned as judges. Let’s say, 3 judges (again for easy illustration)

Each judge has a total of 100 points only.

Candidate A receives 40 points from Judge 1, 40 points from Judge 2 and 30 points from Judge 3.

Candidate B receives 30 points from Judge 1, 40 points from Judge 2 and 30 points from Judge 3.

Candidate C receives 30 points from Judge 1, 20 points from Judge 2 and 40 points from Judge 3.

Total score for A from the team = (40+40+30)/300 *0.55= 0.2017
Total score for B from the team = (30+40+30)/300 *0.55= 0.1833
Total score for C from the team = (30+20+40)/300 *0.55= 0.1650

Grand total score

Grand total score for Candidate A = 0.1+ 0.2017= 0.3017
Grand total score for Candidate B = 0.2+ 0.1833= 0.3833
Grand total score for Candidate C = 0.15+ 0.1650= 0.315

So, in this example, first prize goes to candidate B.

Transparency

All the candidates’ submission will be made public for transparency purpose and their video demos/DApp’s introductions will also be made public. The scoring from the team and community for each candidate will be made public too. The votes from the community will be displayed in real time, as well as the score of each candidate.

Tie

In case of a tie in the score for the finalist, the final judgement will be made by the team judges.
