XDC Contest for game developers

The event’s general partner Xsolla will hold the XDC Contest for Canada-based game developers. They will compete for a $100k prize pool.

The winner will receive $5,000 and a potential co-investment in the amount of 10% of the requested budget, but not more than $250k. Other finalists and even semi-finalists will also get monetary prizes and different bonuses.

Canadian developers can apply for the XDC Contest before November 22 via this form. The winners will be announced during WN Dev Day Canada’22 on December 6.

Last year, Affordance Studio won the Best Game award for Windigo, a 3D exploration title set in 17th century Canada. The list of the 2021 XDC Contest finalists also included Scavengers Studio’s Season, Watcha Games’ Sea Raiders, and Chainsawesome’s Knight Squad 2.
