Imac

Builders, get ready to make the scariest and most entertaining Halloween experiences yet in VRChat. Contest begins October 1st. Submissions close on October 23rd at 12:00 PST.

We'll be showing off your creations during Halloween weekend (October 25th through the 27th), ending with the winners being announced on the 27th. Winners will have their submissions highlighted in VRChat and on the website.

Spookality Hub

The VRChat Hub is getting a make-over for the Spookality Event. Make sure to visit to show off your Halloween avatars and check out the highlighted worlds.

You may also notice some paranormal occurrences taking place the entire month of October...

Fun Prizes

First through fifth place winners in each category will receive a Limited Edition VRChat ceramic mug (as seen on our Dev Streams), and the first place winners will also receive a $50 gift card to Threadless.com!

Considerations

While these will have no effect on judging, it might be useful to follow a few of these guidelines to promote your world as a popular place to hang out before and after Halloween is over.

  • Put a safe place in your world, where visitors can hang out and chat together knowing nothing is going to spook them.
  • Have signs at the entrance to your world alerting people if there will be jump scares.
  • Promote yourself! If you have a website where people can find out more about your work, let people know at the entrance to your world.
  • Let us know when submitting a world if it's better experienced solo or in a group (small/large).
  • Potential updates to the SDK could break content. Please keep this in mind and always make sure you have the latest SDK as well as our latest supported Unity version (2017.4.28f1).

At the end of the day ...

Halloween is all about having fun. Please enjoy yourself and have a happy VRChat Spookality! Good luck to all those that enter! Remember when wearing your headset, you can't see the monster behind you.
