This jam is now over. It ran from 2017-09-10 01:00:00 to 2017-11-17 08:00:00.

#Artsplosion presents: The Billy DeFrank LGBTQ Center's first game jam!

We're going to kick it off with the theme of "community", because together we make everything better! Including games!

The game jam starts after the free GameMaker lesson at #Artsplosion on Sept 9, 2017.  For more info about the event, visit

This is a remote jam, 2 month duration. Due date is Friday, November 17th, the day of November's #Artsplosion concert event.  If you'd like a table to exhibit your game, please sign up for the mailing list, and apply to be an exhibitor through the event website.

Though this is a jam hosted by an LGBTQ community center, the jam is open to all!  Are you a part of our community? Do you have something to say about your community? Say it here!


  • Make a game based on the theme "community"
  • Teams are OK!
  • Begin and submit by the official start and end date
  • #Artsplosion is an all-ages event, so please provide warnings for mature content in your games.

After Submitting:

After submission deadline, the intent is the make the games available as a pay-what-you-want pack, with all money going to the Billy DeFrank LGBTQ Center, a 501(c)3 non-profit. Subsequent plans include a charity live-stream and opportunities to participate via interview or commentary.  Please include contact information in submission so I can contact you about partipating in the live-stream.  Please also note if you would *not* like the game to be exhibited.
