Virtual Reality is the next frontier for games! A-Frame is a powerful open source web framework for building virtual reality experiences. WebVR with A-Frame makes it possible for web developers to get involved. This year, we’re introducing a whole new category to the js13kGames competition.
Inspire us with a virtual reality game experience built in WebVR with A-Frame. For this category, you’ll have the same file size limit set to 13 kilobytes plus the A-Frame library for free. We can’t wait to see what you create!
A-Frame co creator, API designer and maintainer.

Uniquely branded cardboard for every entry.
The rules of the competition for the A-Frame category are exactly the same as Desktop and Mobile, with the extra one - you can include the A-Frame library from a remote server. Place this HTML in your <head> tag:
external resource you can use.
You can freely use A-Frame components if you fit them inside the package. Remember that some of them may try to download extra resources, which is not allowed, so you have to modify them for your use in the competition.
Given the specificity of this category, and that entries using the library for "free" have technological advantage over other entries, the A-Frame category is treated as an entirely separate one. You can submit your game to any (or all) of the three classic categories (Desktop and/or Mobile and/or Server) OR to the A-Frame category alone.
The standard submit form is already open. Remember to select the A-Frame category as the only one from the available options. The A-Frame library itself cannot be included in the zipped package, only linked to - the zip without it should be 13 kilobytes or less.
The judges in this category are here to focus on your entries. Every judge will try to vote for every entry submitted to the A-Frame category, and provide constructive feedback - what was great and what could be improved.
There is a dedicated section in the Resources page with the links to useful materials about A-Frame - be sure to check it out.
Uniquely branded cardboards will be distributed to all participants in this year's competition, not only the A-Frame category ones. The cardboards will be sent the same way the t-shirts will be - one per entry, shipped together, for free.
