Pioneering virtual reality firm Oculus VR is hosting a game jam this April, with the prize pot amounting to a cool $1m.

The Mobile VR Jam, as the title suggests, is focused on virtual reality titles for mobile devices – specifically the Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition, which Oculus VR helped to created last year.

Prizes include sums of cash and awards, and will be given to the developers that come up with the best new VR games, apps and experiences.

Developers interested in taking part can head to the competition's page on ChallengePost. There, they will be able to find teams, discuss their ideas and prepare for the game jam, which begins on April 13th.

A kick-off event will be held at GDC in San Francisco next week, where you can meet other potential participants.
