Welcome to the second year of the Yandere Game Jam ! 

  • An entry is to have at least one character who encapsulates the essentials of yandere (yangires included) aesthetic― which is being possessive, obsessive, unstable, insatiable, stop at nothing to get what they want etc. 
  • Check this wikia for a variety of yandere sub types for inspo and what sub-types of yanderes are allowed.

What kind of content is not allowed? 

  • Beastiality
  • Loli/shota/underage
  • Any kind of incest/pesudo-incestual content
  • No entries which contain hatespeech or bigotry in any capacity
  • Entried that fail to provide proper content and/or trigger warnings in the game & on the game page

What kind of game formats are allowed? 

  • Demos
  • Full games
  • Pre-existing projects that fit the theme
  • Anything 2D (visual novel, interactive fiction, point & click etc.)
  • Anything 3D (board games, card games, games using 3D assets or game engines etc.)

Are there any particular values you promote?

  • I want this game jam to be accessible and inclusive, so it is preferred that games prioritise accessible gameplay and diverse casts (disabled characters, bipod characters, neurodivergent & autistic characters etc.) this is as there are plenty of games for able bodied, hetero, white etc. audiences (even within niches like 'yandere' games.)
  • This doesn't mean you can't make entries for those audiences, it's just that I want to promote games with more diversity and intersectionality.
  • 🔪 ACCESSIBILTY & ACCOMODATING PLAYERS GUIDE ðŸ”ª

    Due to the nature of this jam, it is essential all entries have a trigger and/or content warning. Look at the guide I have put together below for game creators and contributors on how to make your game page, and gameplay, more accessible:

    🔪 ACCESSIBLE FEATURES [Ren'Py] ðŸ”ª
    🩸 Here are some great accessibility tools for the Ren'Py engine, as a majority (if not all) entries for this jam are made with Ren'Py. Many have tutorials or videos covering their installation/usage!

    TOOLS:

    🔪 ON TAGGING CONTENT ðŸ”ª
    🩸 I recommend using the content warning tool listed above by npckc to create a pop-up or drop-down menu on your itch.io game page, which will contain any content or trigger warnings which might apply to the entry.

    🔪 DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CONTENT AND TRIGGER WARNINGS🔪
    🩸 Look at the table below to see some examples of what counts as a content warnings VS. a trigger warning

    CONTENT WARNING EXAMPLES TRIGGER WARNING EXAMPLES
    Gore Blood
    Vomit
    Insects
    Alcohol use
    Drug use
    Sexual assault
    Verbal/Physical violence
    Child abuse
    Self harm
    Non-consensual use of drugs or alcohol

    Entries with sensitive content, which do not contain any sort of warnings on the game page and/or inside the game, will be removed from submissions. Trigger/content warnings are essential to the safety of the players and people consuming content.

    🔪 REMEMBER TO INCLUDE WARNINGS ON YOUR GAME PAGE AS WELL AS INSIDE THE GAME ðŸ”ª
