Pride Flag Colours - Use one of the pride flags as the base of your colour palette for your game (different shades are allowed)

Accessibility Rules - Ensure that your game considers options to help as wide a range of players enjoy your game. For some inspiration :

Can鈥檛 Be Played Alone - Your submission features an aspect of multiplayer, either local or online for all or some of the game.

All Around The World - Have your team split across at least two different time zones.

Sustainability - Have your game feature limited resources (energy, lives, coins etc) to encourage players to get creative with their solutions

Following on from the success of the last six years of this game jam, we're super excited to see what's created this year. We have accumulated a fantastic collection of games made. Previous years submissions can be viewed following the links below. #RainbowJam21#RainbowJam20#RainbowJam19#RainbowJam18#RainbowJam17 and #RainbowJam16

Rainbow Game Jam encourages participants to create games exploring and celebrating identity, gender, sexuality, sex, life, Intersectionality, being queer, yourself and your community, pride, protests, and love! Games are for everyone, and anyone can create games!
