Yaoi Game Jam is a two 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.

Adapted Rules from Yuri Game Jam 2017:

  1.  Your game must focus on queer relationships between men OR the queer male experience. This includes: gay, bi, trans, non-binary, aro, ace, pan, any male-identified LGBTQIA characters.
  2. This is an inclusive jam and anyone can join. Although uncomfortable subjects can be explored, please be considerate of the themes/material used, and fellow creators/players. Entries that promote bigotry (i.e transphobic/racism) are not allowed.
