Fall puns aside its time for the next great Rainbow Jam!!!!!!!! I know it just seems like we did one of these (spoilers: we did, it was called Haunted Rainbow Jam and it was fantastic~) but like so many things the Rainbow Jam time comes once a month. Hopefully you like this monthly gift more than the others you may receive (my favorite is still comics but Rainbow Jam is slowly climbing the rankings). So because I'll never leaf you alone (yeah I went there) let's join together and kick out another awesome Game Jam #ByUs4Us !

What are Rainbow Jams?

Well that's a fair questions. Rainbow Jams are my answer to being annoyed at not hearing Queer and minority stories. Its my answer to wanting to see more games created by those same people. We do exist out there even if people whisper about our mythical and magical unicorn powers. And I'd like to see more of us reflected in games, and as game creators. So from now on I will be hosting a Rainbow Jam a month to help fuel that avalanche of creation of games that better reflect our community. Its time for some games #ByUs4Us !

So therefore there are only two rules to Rainbow Jams : 1) your game must focus on Queer and/or minorities OR the experiences of those groups and 2) all games submitted have to be created during the current Rainbow Jam. You can do prep work leading up to it, in fact I encourage it. Prep away! HOWEVER you may not start work on the actual design or the game itself until the jam starts.

You don't have to finish the game to submit it. Unfinished works or demos are allowed, encouraged, and accepted! Completing the work for the jam isn't a requirement just creating one is.

Theme : Stories Untold

We all have them, and we all know that there are millions of stories that are hidden around us just floating around. Some we don't tell because we are afraid, some aren't told because no one will listen, and others because they just haven't had a chance to be told. Whatever the case we are bringing those stories out into the spotlight.
