TAIKAI Game Jam is targeted at creative minds with a hacker spirit (in the classical definition of the word).

Hos do I form a team?
All your team members should register as innovators on the challenge page before the registration deadline. During the project creation or during the ideation stage you can add your team members as project members using their username or registered email.
Why is the official language english?
English is usually well understood and accepted in the international community. Our main motivation is technology and talent, and these are global attributes, so our main 'language' is what we use to code. English is not the only language at the event, though.
What is maximum size of each team?
Your team should be a maximum size of 5 to be considered for the final prizes.
Can I participate alone?
Yes, you don't need to have a team to participate.
Who is eligible for the prizes?
All Project submissions with proper game description and slide presentation about the game prototype and mechanics that follow the team size eligibility will be considered for final judgement evaluation.
Are the other participants apart from my team able to see my project details?
Not during the competition, the published projects and draft projects are only visible to project members and judges, thus no one is able to copy or clone your project resources to use on their submission. After the competition is finished and after the results are revealed, the project details are going to be visible to anyone that visits the platform.
Who owns project intellectual property?
The team that develops the project is the owner of the project and IP. We do encourage sharing of code with others in the community or making code open source but it is not required to participate or be eligible for the prizes.
How the winners are selected?
The winners are selected by a group of judges selected by the promoters that will assess the submissions based on the criteria defined. Each judge will have a limited amount of KAI tokens to invest and back the eligible projects. The final result is going to be produced based on the amount of KAIs received by each project.
When the winners will be announced?
The Game Jam winners will be announced online on the TAIKAI challenge page and on the promoter social networks.
