Can I update my entry after I’ve submitted my experience?
Yes! We encourage you to update your experience as often as you like to keep your fans and potential customers happy.
Are there any restrictions on what can be posted?
Your experience must not contain extremist, offensive material or violate copyright or intellectual property rights.
Do I need to form a company, or can I post as an individual?
It’s not necessary to post as a company, but you will need a single individual or entity identified before we can issue you payment for the revenue of your product.
I have a free experience – can I still submit it to NewPathVR?
Yes. You can submit your free experience to SpiritualVR. Note that once your experience has been approved and you are preparing for release, any in-experience transactions or subscriptions will be considered revenue.
I have an experience that runs in a web browser – can I submit it to NewPathVR?
Experiences distributed by NewPathVR must be able to launch and run as stand-alone applications. If you have a browser-based experience, you will need to create a version that can operate as a stand-alone executable and not require use of the customer's web browser.
What systems must my experience run on?
To remain in NewPathVR and qualify for distribution via NewPathVR, your experience must at least run on a Windows PC. You can also be developing for any other platform you like, but we are only able to support PC, Mac and Linux releases at this time.
