Oh, I noticed that the first VRChat World Jam is going on currently. See here: https://itch.io/jam/vrchat-sketchbook-jam

It will be interesting to compare the submitted worlds of that jam with just the winning worlds of Rec Room's latest creator contest: https://recroom.com/hiddenworlds , which will be announced this weekend. (There are so many submissions to Rec Room's creator contests that trying to visit all of them would be a serious time committment.)

But maybe that's not a fair comparison because these creator contests in Rec Room offer more time for development and are now highly competitive contests where many of the best creators in Rec Room show off what they can do, while VRChat just started with their World Jams.

Maybe a better comparison is between the VRChat World Jam and Rec Room's game jam in March: https://recroom.com/gamejam . The submissions to the latter can be found by going to rec.net and searching for #gamejam2021 .
