Important Entry Guidelines

  • You can depict characters from the comics only, no Actors or Character depictions from the show.
  • Your creation must stay within the world of The Walking Dead. So no crossovers with other IP, or concepts that are inconsistent with the logic of the setting such as spaceships or talking animals.
  • Low quality entries or spammed entries with no effort put into their creation will be disqualified at The Sandbox’s discretion. The same goes for attempting to claim other people’s creations as your own — we’ll know.
  • Entries with sexual, homophobic, racist, and other NSFW or inappropriate references will be disqualified. Keep it family friendly.
  • Your submission must be original, made entirely by you. You cannot make an ASSET of a character that belongs to someone else (i.e., Marvel, Disney, Sega etc.).
  • If a contest is in partnership with an external brand, you are allowed to use their logo but cannot upload your asset on the marketplace.
  • Your entry must be made in The Sandbox’s free VoxEdit software (click here), available on Windows and Mac.

  • The maximum size of an asset is 512 voxels tall (16 meters). Floor print should not exceed 512 x 512 x 512.

Do’s and Don’ts


  • Take inspiration from the IP’s brand, work, and values.


  • Create characters, people, and logos as assets to use in your game.
  • Use names of characters or people part of the IP’s brand.
