Meet the Winners of the GenAI x Halloween Contest

At the end of September, we launched our first one-week contest challenging developers to create a Halloween-themed GenAI experience. The contest offered $500 and a feature on the 8th Wall homepage. 

We were so impressed with the GenAI experiences our 8th Wall developers created and are excited to announce the winner and highlight two of the other submissions! 

We were so impressed with the multiplayer experiences our 8th Wall developers created and are excited to announce the winners! 

Grand Prize Winner

If the jump scares and thrill of Halloween isn’t for you then Peter Locharernkul’s “Ha Ha Halloween” experience is perfect for you! He used a combination of face effects and the GenAI module to create unique visuals to accompany wacky PUN-chlines to various classic Halloween-themed jokes. This experience will have you laughing over and over again, check it out here.

This multiplayer experience stands as a groundbreaking multi-platform multiplayer WebAR game, fueled by the advancements of 8thWall and its Metaversal Deployment, complemented by the innovative Shared-AR module. Players can join via their mobile, desktop, or VR devices to team up or take on the role of Guardian and disrupt the other players.

Our first runner-up is Libardo Martines Durango, who built “Central Park of Terror” using VPS (Visual Positioning System) and GenAI to transform your local areas into a spooktacular world. Libardo was inspired by the numerous horror films and stories he’s come across over the years, check it out here. 



Our second runner-up is “Spooky Booky” by Adam Czibere who created an experience for users to generate their own personalized scary stories using ChatGPT and have them read out using Dall-e. Are you ready to create your story?
