I'm so excited to have you here for the second Go With The Flow Jam!
Go With The Flow Jam ran for the first time last year, April-May 2022. The idea for the jam came about following the release of Disney's film Turning Red. There were numerous reactions to the film expressing disgust and shock that periods were mentioned during one of the film's scenes. As a way to combat this period stigma, Go With The Flow Jam was born!
Check out last year's submissions.
There are tons of amazing (FREE) game-making tools out there. I recommend checking out Twine and Bitsy:
Have fun! This is a very casual jam. There is no ranking or judging. If you can't finish your project in time, that is okay! My project last year didn't end up getting finished, but I'm so glad I spent time working on it and thinking about how the prompt of "period" can translate into a game. The point of this jam is to get people thinking about games about unconventional topics. Experiment and have fun!
