Hello Everyone! It's time for the Amare Game Jam <3


What is Amare?

Latin word meaning Love - A new subgenre of story-focused games 

* Centers diversity and inclusivity

Amare wants diversity in all forms

* Room for all relationships

Yes romance. Yes relationships. Yes platonic.

Is my game Amare? 

Yes! If you want it to be.

If you, or your game needs a home, and there's not another tag that fits, or the current tags don't let you fit. If you think the concept of 'Amare' works. If you just like the tag and want to use it. Then YES, you belong here. Use the tag.

You can find more information about Amare by checking out this explanation, following the twitter, and on discord!


For this game jam we invite you to create a game that you believe falls under the theme Amare! Not sure what Amare is? See the explanation above and check out the links for more detail :D

The jam has fairly relaxed rules, but in general we would like all participants to keep these in mind:

Rules:

  • Demos and "Vertical Slice" games are fine!
  • NSFW content is fine if it doesn't go against Itch.io's TOS, and it must be properly labeled!
  • No hate speech, (i.e. speech that promotes hatred, violence or discrimination against groups of people based on ethnicity, religion, gender, age, disability or sexual orientation.) or content that is patently offensive or intended to shock or disgust viewers.
  • Content Warnings are needed (Here is a link to help you with those if you need it!) 
  • Make the bulk of the game during the jam, planning beforehand is fine!

Want to make a game but have no one to cooperate with?
Are you an artist that'd like to help bring characters to life?
Or a musician wanting to lend your talent to a game?

Join the discord  to find others who are looking for jam partners, and to talk with other Amare Devs!
