Welcome to the first ever BTW (Bechdel Test for Writing) Jam! A game jam where the theme is based on the Bechdel Test. If you have no clue what that is, fear not! For your convenience, here is an excerpt from Wikipedia:
"The Bechdel test (/ˈbɛkdəl/ bek-dəl) asks whether a work of fiction features at least two women who talk to each other about something other than a man. The requirement that the two women must be named is sometimes added.
Only about half of all films meet these requirements, according to user-edited databases and the media industry press. The test is used as an indicator for the active presence of women in films and other fiction, and to call attention to gender inequality in fiction."
So now that you basically know what the Bechdel Test is, I can get into the rules for the Jam:
And that's it! Just make a game with a gal that talks to and/or hangs out with another gal.
For those of you are that are thinking "Well, that's too easy!" then here are some more additional achievements to spice your game up!
Extra brownie points for hitting multiple (or all) of the achievements!
Prizes include a theoretical cookie, a pat on the back, and bragging rights for making a game that passes the Bechdel Test. And maybe some additional goodies as well. :)
