Ace Jam is a game jam about creating games with asexual spectrum characters. Given that there are relatively few games out there with asexual characters, let alone asexual characters in primary roles, I thought I'd host a game jam to go about changing that. This jam is for people of all skill levels. If this is your first game jam, great! Never made a game before? Great. This is a low pressure, non-judged jam. It's all about creating more ace games for people to play.
While we don't have a Discord server specifically for Ace Jam (I don't know how big this jam will be yet), I created an #acejam channel in my Queer Game Dev server (for queer-identified game devs, but also respectful Straight people interested in making games with lgbt+ characters) here: https://discord.gg/AxVTMrH

You don't have to be asexual to join, but if you are not ace, please be respectful in your game and do your research on asexuality. (Hint: talk to asexual people!) If you don't know the difference between asexual and agender or aren't willing to look it up on your own, this may not be the jam for you.
