Thank you so much for playing! We had a great time working on this game.

Created a new topic Monthly to Yearly Awards

Hi, one and all!

So this was mentioned quickly in an email a few Jams ago and I wanted to expand on it further here. While currently, we are working hard behind the scenes to grow the Rainbow Jam community, bring more substance to you the participants, and increase participation we have lately had rather low submission numbers. It didn’t make sense to give 5 awards to a single game simply because it was the only one submitted so I called an audible and changed things up. Now instead of us awarding one of those every month, we will be moving to a yearly awards ceremony! Every time you submit a game to a Rainbow Jam this year it is automatically submitted into the list for the end of the year; this gives us time to come up with something really good to give the winners. The awards will still stay the same category-wise as they have for all previous Rainbow Jams.

We will also be giving raffle tickets out to people throughout the Jams that will then all go into a giant pot for some really cool things (we are still deciding on what, so feel free to give us input on that in the next Town Hall or through this form). You can earn these tickets a couple of ways: 1) by submitting a game [limited to one submission a Jam], 2) by giving real feedback on games that request it [limit still pending], 3) by promoting the current Jam on social media and tagging myself or the Rainbow Jam account in it [limited to one submission a jam]. Now, for the next couple of months this is still what we will consider Beta rules so they may change, but if they happen they will only change moving forward and not affect any past raffle tickets gained.

I forgot to say this earlier but really looking forward to seeing more of the game!

Yeah the laptop died right before it ended, but I have everything almost back up to speed for the game. The new demo will feature three of the animals instead of just the raven.

Submitted so its not forgotten! Will be updating with min viable game either tonight or tomorrow morning for people to start testing if they want.

There will be several updates in the next few days taking the game to its original 6 days / 7 scenes a piece possible so keep your eye out

Just a heads up! Expect at least 1 more update today to expand the game!

Thanks for playing it Owlor! The game is in progress and pretty regularly getting updated each day with more content. I'm glad someone is enjoying my brand of humor though, I was afraid it would land a bit flat <3

General 1: Your game's protagonist is a POC dealing with harassment in Trump's world by dodging text bubbles.

General 2: Your game's protagonist is a Queer child using their imagination to create a world to deal with real life problems (ie fighting a dragon may be MC facing down a bully).

RJ Challenge - Must Keep Moving 1: Your game's protagonist is a queer character dodging hate and collecting colors to set off rainbow powers, which is temp invincibility.

RJ Challenge - Must Keep Moving 2: Your game's protagonist is an animal running from a forest fire. You use the game to talk about problems facing the First Nation and loss of habitat/land through encounters and pop-ups.


It's mainly just realizing that way too many games the protagonist or MC(s) are straight, white and male simply by default and asking those participating in Rainbow Jam events to combat that with cognizant game design.

If anyone needs anything to help make sure this happens please let me know! You can easily tag me on the discord server at anytime.

I'm finishing the outline for the romance arcs of each character now but I should have an epilogue up and running for the game this weekend. If you're up for it I'd love to message or email you more details about the project!

Hey would you be up for working on a VN? I'd love to talk music needs for my jam game with you!

Replied to fluffy in Music

No worries. Music would be awesome to have for the game but we can always add it later when you are feeling better as well. Its a VN where a bee is trying to seduce the sweet sweet nectar out of flowers. So very tongue in cheek, over the top kind of humor.

Posted in Music

Would you be up for doing music for a VN?

Posted in A Question

Yeah you can use things in the public domain and creative commons as long as you reference them in a sort of credit section where possible.

Posted in A Question

When you say CC art assets are you referring to Creative Commons...?

I'm doing a VN about a bee trying to get some of that sweet sweet honey from flowers that I'll need some pretty simple art assets for if you are interested.

If we finish one none human game would it be okay to submit a second one? I'm still seeing the 'submit game' button even though I turned in 'Steven Seagull : Owl By Herself'.

Of course! That's the whole reason why Rainbow Jam is a monthly jam. Life happens but I wanted to build a community around cretion together.

Created a new topic A New Year Rainbow Jam

Hey there virtual neighbor! How do you like this jam? How have you liked the others? Have any thoughts, suggestions, questions, or tea to dish? Then let us know!

Welcome one and all! The whole point of these Rainbow Jams is to build a community that encourages and helps each other to build games where there is a lack of them. Ones with representation of ourselves. So in light of wanting to build that community here is the place to talk with each other, post questions if you are stuck on something, or even just talk about how hyped you. We also now have a Discord Server ( http://discord.gg/DunT8yr ) to keep the conversation going as well if you are want to do that instead.

As we are still small it will just be me, I'll bring in more judges once we reach a milestone in size. Results should only take a week maybe two depending on how many submissions we end up with

That is perfectly fine! I consider the term minority to cover ethnicity, race, religion, nerodivergency, disability, gender, etc. We still have another week on the Jam so more people will probably submit the closer we get to the end of the jam

(First bonus points for the pun, good job.)

Secondly I've tried not to be super strict on rules because I do want that creativity. If when you submit the game you can explain how it relates to the theme or the Jam or both I'll take it. A lot of things I've enjoyed playing the most have been abstract so I'm not about to shut that avenue down as long as it's with in reason

YAY! Guys we are already larger then last time, how awesome is that!!?

Oooo~ letting go sounds like a fun one

(I'll probably use alot of ! in this message so I apologize in advance)

Hi glitterflounc!

So happy you joined us for the Haunted Rainbow Jam and congrats! You should be able to reply to the email you received from me via the Rainbow Jam and itch.io that discusses the winners. Just include your Steam username in the response to receive your prizes!

I hope that you'll join us for the Fall Rainbow Jam that starts this Sunday! Also feel free to follow me on Twitter, @JustThinkingKay, as I regularly post about Rainbow Jam there.

Created a new topic Fall Rainbow Jam Feedback

Hey there virtual neighbor! How do you like this jam? Have any thoughts, suggestions, questions, or tea to dish? Then let us know!

Hi! Yes the jam is still happening. One of the submissions was a fake one with a game that didn't follow the rules (as you can see Rainbow Jams have very few of those) and was just submitting to be submitted. The other was a mistake on my part as my brain misread the numbers on the game page created and read it as something that was created pre-jam. I've already reached out to that creator apologizing and asking them to resubmit.

Thanks for the feedback! I know the prizes are small but I wanted to do a little something for people taking time out to participate even though I know it's not a lot. I think moving forward I might only do prizes once a season so I can make sure they are good enough to be worth it as I still really like the idea of making sure you awesome game creators get a little something

(Edited 1 time)

Aw~ thanks! Yeah I knew this one would be a little sparse especially since I literally put it together sitting in the hotel after a really awesome event (if you haven't checked out GaymerX and its events you definitely should). But I wanted to make it a monthly thing to hopefully help grow a really awesome community on here around it. I even set the bar low for this first one with 5 entries.

Created a new topic Favorite Halloween Movies?

While we are busy making Halloween games what are some of your favorite Halloween movies? I'd have to say Hocus Pocus is right at the top of my list.

Hey one and all! Thanks so much for joining us on on our first Rainbow Jam. I'd love to hear your thoughts, critiques, suggestions, etc so that I can keep making Rainbow Jams better.
