This is the month of a day where alot of us get heart eyes and become little romantics. It is also a month where an equal amount of us roll our eyes and groan at the upcoming cupid's massacre that will occur. However we can all agree, some of us begrudgingly, that love is in the air during this month. Those of us at Rainbow Jam feel that it should be celebrated and so we decided to do it in true RJ style by creating games that show the deeper nuances of what love can mean.
PS - Don't forget to join us on our fabulous Rainbow Jam discord server for some good old community building and fun times.
Theme : Many Forms of Love
Having just finished an amazing audiobook I will start this section by saying, 'Love as thou will'...again. Love has so many forms and shows itself in many different ways. There are as many ways to love and to show it as there are people on the planet. Heck even more! So in recognition of this month's Day of Love we the Wizards behind Rainbow Jam would like to see what forms of love take for you.
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.
