Welcome to the June Bug Rainbow Jam! This month the name of the theme is Alternatives. Take it as you will and lets all work together to see some really amazing games added to the world. Remember the reason we are here building this community for Rainbow Creators, to show those who might need it games that show themselves in it. Together we can be the media we needed as kids.
PS - Don't forget to join us on our fabulous Rainbow Jam discord server for some good old community building and fun times.
Theme : Alternatives
Is it a choice? An alternative universe? Multiple games in one? Choices in choices, wheels within wheels. How you see this is up to you as always but I do suggest trying to have as much fun as possible with it. This theme blurb is a small one so feel free to ask questions and discuss!
Rules of Rainbow Jam
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.
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 !
