Overview & Objectives


Objective of AR-VR Hackathon is to introduce Undergraduate Students to AR-VR Development process. The first stage is to get started with 3D development environment. This Hackathon introduces a step by step Unity3D learning platform. By following simple intuitive pre recorded video tutorials, students will not only learn about the development environment but also will be able to make a beginner level game on Unity3D. Students can further show their creativity and modify the sample project (they will learn to develop). They need to submit modified project to participate in the competition. Learning platform also provides step by step details how to submit the project.

Our free module provides all the necessary steps on how to design 3D Virtual environment and to create a 3D Maze.
Learn how to make Collect-The-Coins game.
Students may download the sample projects and play around with them.

Hackathon Task


1. The task consists of making a game with the above completed Collect-The-Coins as the starting point. There are no constraints on the number of features that you may introduce to the game, as long as the basic game play remains similar to the sample projects.

2. Students should modify the project using their creativity. They can take help of other online resources and make their game more interesting by, say:
Improving aesthetics (looks) by using better 3D assets.
Adding more features like Sound, Particle System, Characters, Animations etc.
Implementing any other ideas that the contestant may deem fit to make game interesting and enjoyable
