Frequently Asked Questions

All answers to your questions about GameCamp Arena 2024, in one place!

What are the evaluation criteria?

The GameCamp Jury will evaluate the submitted projects in terms of technical and artistic quality. The projects with a large number of errors, unplayable, clearly unfinished (e.g., levels with clearly unfinished asset implementation, non-functional features, lack of sound, etc.), and poorly implemented networking (errors in player connections, stuttering, lag, etc.) will not be accepted.
