💯Judging Criteria

Your asset will be judged based on the criteria below. Each criterion follows a scale of 1 to 5, 1 being “very poor” and 5 being “very good”.

  • Creativity (How creative was the asset based on the theme?)
  • Usability (Versatility, different uses/scale/good collider interactions) worth double points
  • Optimisation (does the asset look optimised in The Sandbox Game? Low face and node count is more optimised)
  • Aesthetics (Geometry, shape / Proportion / Colour Palette / Texture / Level of detail).
