Let’s kickoff 2021 in an extraordinary way with our biggest callout yet. This time, we’re asking for your help creating games that will define entirely new genres in Creative. You have the opportunity to make an impact in defining the game mode you love so much and receive an extended period of featuring in the Hub.
We’re challenging you to create Sandbox RPG, Social Simulation, Survival, Job Simulation, Social Deduction, and Tycoon games. We understand there are limitations in Creative and making these games won’t come out perfectly.
We’re most interested in the level of detail, art quality, consistency, and complexity of game mechanics. If we don’t get any submission that meets our standards for a specific genre, we will wait to feature one until we do. We’ve provided a short detailed description of each genre below.
New Game Modes
As well, Epic has noted players will be able to create the following game genres within Creative:
OPEN WORLD ACTION-ADVENTURE
A game with gameplay elements that allow players a greater level of creativity in order to accomplish the game’s main goal. More info.
Social simulation games are a subgenre of life simulation games that explore social interactions between multiple artificial lives. More info.
Session survival games are hostile, intense, open-world environments. Players generally begin with minimal equipment and are required to survive for a timed session length by crafting tools, weapons, shelters, and collecting resources. More info.
Job simulation games are a subgenre of life simulation games that simulate what are seemingly ordinary jobs. More info.
