Welcome, or welcome back, to Queer Games Bundle! All queer creators or majority queer teams are welcome to join with games, tabletop games, books, music, assets, etc. Taylor McCue is stepping back this year as she works to leave Florida. Caroline Delbert will be leading the bundle, with help.

New this year, all submissions to the bundle will go through this jam page, as required by itch.io. You also need to submit a Google form as in years past. If you don't complete and submit this form, you won't be part of the final bundle:

All funds received are divided transparently among the developers. This year, you'll opt into a funding level. This is new. We made this change after some problems and thoughtful feedback last year. We want to fund everyone, including those who may have less financial need, those who make microgames, and those who have submitted the same work to the bundle multiple times. Here are the levels:

Level 3, full funding: This is the single level from years past, now for people new to the bundle or with new content. People submitting all the same content again, a demo, or people submitting microgames or one-page games, should not choose this level. As an example only to show the math, this user may earn $300.

Level 2, ⅔ (two thirds) funding: This is one step down, letting users opt in based on their financial situation and what they're submitting. People submitting demos, multiple microgames, or multiple one-page games may choose this level. People submitting all the same content for a third or fourth time should not choose this level. As an example only to show the math, this user may earn $200.

Level 1, ⅓ (one third) funding: This is the basic funding level. Everyone is eligible for this level, no matter what. As an example only to show the math, this user may earn $100.

If you have questions about your own specific level, you can email us at queergamesbundle@gmail.com. No question is too small. We want everyone to get paid. Any general questions or concerns, you can post in the "Community" forum section of this page. I'm also open to setting up a Discord if that's something people want -- please post in the "Community" forum if you'd like that.
