Yaoi Game Jam is a
two one month long jam dedicated to making games—visual novels in particular—featuring male-identified characters in queer relationships.
Traditionally, the term "yaoi," also known as "boy's love," refers to female-oriented works from Japan, or works inspired by those works, that feature two or more male characters in a romantic relationship. However, this game jam is open to stories about all kinds of relationships between queer-identified men, from platonic to romantic, and everything in-between!
This jam was inspired by Yuri Game Jam, which first ran in Fall 2015 (and which we hope will happen again this year!).
