Sorry if this is spam but itch.io has no way of sending PMs. :(

I'm from Soulsoft Electronic arts. ( https://soulsoftea.itch.io ) Sooo I'm thinking about hosting a Game Jam on itch.io. My idea is a bara game jam which I'll call "BARA JAM", and I'm trying to see how much interest there would be in such a jam, and if it would be worth hosting. Would this be something you'd be up to participate in or even co-host?

I'm thinking about having it in October and lasting 1 month.

I made a thread on LSF with more details here: https://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=51373

I'm really trying to see if this is a viable jam that people would even want. I hope so! I'll obviously be submitting an entry as well. =) you can email me here soulsoftea@gmail.com

Thanks a ton for letting us know-- unfortunately I'm (DCS) way too busy to help host a jam-- let alone be in another jam so soon! @_@ But I think Arcade Party MIGHT be interested in helping out hosting-- so they will contact you separately via e-mail once they decide.

We'll keep this comment up so other people who might be interested can see-- but for now both Arcade Party and I have to simply say; good luck with everything!

Hi DCS! No of course, no problem, I'm just glad you heard me out and passed the message along to your partner Arcade Party. 

Honestly, it may not even be in October as it depends on interest, but also a friend mentioned that BaraJam's proposed duration would overlap YuriJam. And although my spidey-senses say that those wanting to participate in YuriJam wouldn't probably not participate in BaraJam anyways, I could be wrong and YuriJam IS still one of the BIG ones. 

In anycase, I appreciate you leaving this up and if you just help spread that word, that's all I could ask for. ^_^ Thanks! 

I would actually be someone who would participate in Yurijam over Barajam;; So whomever gave you that warning was right! (Here's the game I helped make for last year's Yurijam by the way.) November would probably be your best best imo, otherwise sometime in 2019?

Good luck with everything!

Hi DCS, so a bunch of other VN creators have reached out stating that they would be more inclined to participate should BaraJam be in Nov. So I think it's safe to announce that I'll be hosting BaraJam to begin Nov.1st instead. 

Also I didn't know you participating in YuriJam as well! Your style is very much your own and could never be mistakened for anyone elses. It looks like a wonderful submission ^_^

Sounds awesome! 💖 I still don't think I'll have time to participate (Oct--Dec is very busy for me) but I'm excited to see what people make!
