Welcome to Release the Magic! A queer magical girl game jam. Wish you all the best of luck with your project. Please feel free to make forum threads for things you need. Also, there is a discord server for jams that I (Margaret Catter Dev) run if you want more live interactions.

Margaret Catters Jam Band Discord Server https://discord.gg/J8tNmfCD

If you have any questions feel free to drop them here.

Have fun!

Am I supposed to be able to import it back into this one though? Cause I had a dungeon I wanted to poke around at and make changes to later so I exported the .json file but now I’m John Travolta in that Pulp Fiction gif.

Odd question but whats the point of exporting it as a JSON file?

A comedic TTRPG where players adventure through a haunted location chasing a mysterious being who is played by the GM. They are bent on discovering what they deem to be the truth of the matter about the mystery in question. The story is crafted based on dice rolls and responses from players.

Time for the second iteration of everyone’s favorite riot grrrl game jam! Make a game or a game adjacent thing so long as its punk AF.

This is a month-long game jam geared around the Riot Grrrl movement, from Wikipedia “Riot grrrl is an underground feminist punk movement that began in the early 1990s in Washington state (particularly Olympia) and the greater Pacific Northwest. It is a subcultural movement that combines feminist consciousness and punk style and politics.”

Your project can cover any of the subjects of the Riot Grrrl movement either directly or obliquely.

Riot grrrl bands often address issues such as rape, domestic abuse, sexuality, racism, patriarchy, classism, anarchism, and female empowerment all of which are things you are allowed to talk about in your game, however, you must tag your submissions properly and not violet the itch.io ToS.

Yes its fine to submit a game for turn based tactics jam and another jam so long as its fine with the other jam.

Hi, I’m unsure of who needs what but if you check the jam page there’s a link to the discord where people are congregating. Also, this is a ttrpg game jam so I’m not sure if people will need a musician necessarily

This is a “traditional” pen and paper game jam so if you figured out how to do that via pencil and paper go forth!

Please excuse the mess.

I’ll set up a discord server sometime this week.

I’m running a TTRPG Jam for people who want to make Turn-Based Tactics or Strategy Based Tactic games of their dream.

For anyone who’s ever thought “But what if I could play Disgaea with pen and paper.”

It starts in 11 days and goes for a month. You’re free to hack, remix or even if you have the time and will create your own original TTRPG system.

Its meant to create a pen and paper game :D

If there’s a computer component that’s fine but the main focus should be on the pen and paper game.

This is the first time this jam has run so there are no pictures or videos from past jams. No there isn’t any other form of chat currently other than these forums. If other people express interest I can make a public discord for the jam.

I wouldnt have any idea how to implement a RTS system into a Tabletop game but I believe in you!

Either or works. I personally like solo games with an AI system but whatever works for you.

Glad you enjoyed the demo. There will be an update around the end of the summer to look forward to.

Needs more shades of blue. Can’t wait for the sequel game

What is Magical Girls & Mecha exactly?

Exactly what it says on the box! Magical girls and mech robots! More to the point is is a semi larp semi forum rpg played on discord harkening back to the old roleplay blog rpgs of the eh old Livejournal days. I've been calling it a digital larp but that's just me making up words. 

What exactly is a digital larp?

Like I said I'm just making up words but when I use it I mean you only interact with the game as your character. You act out your characters goals in a solely digital setting, in this cause google docs and discord. 

How is that different from a Forum RPG? 

It's really not its just a combo of LARPing and play by post. Despite not being live action, it's live in the sense that it's always running. It also has a healthy dose of real time human moderation to keep everything on track and running smoothly.

How long does a game of  Magical Girls & Mecha last?

As long as it takes you to complete your mission and defeat or at least stop the invasion of the Once-From-Before. But again a more solid answer is it's up to you, your players and the GM to decide how long you want your game to go for.  In an ideal world where no one has other responsibilities and time commitments it would last a year with you "playing" three times a week. 

How many players does Magical Girls & Mecha support?

Base of 5 with one GM and then one mod for every five more players added to the game. 

When will it be out?

As someone wiser and wittier than I once said "Deadlines are for fools and gods and I am neither". For a more solid answer since I am y ou know asking for money and support, it should be out at the latest baring life events by February. If all goes well end of December a play testable version should be out into the world. 

Post your questions about the game here and I'll answer them as we go. 

Just checking in to see how everyone is doing and if anyone needed anything? Feel free to comment on this post with the status of your project, if you need any help with your project or just how you're doing as a whole.

This is a month-long game jam geared around the Riot Grrrl movement, from wikipedia "Riot grrrl is an underground feminist punk movement that began in the early 1990s in Washington state (particularly Olympia) and the greater Pacific Northwest. It is a subcultural movement that combines feminist consciousness and punk style and politics."

Your project can cover any of the subjects of the Riot Grrrl movement either directly or obliquely.

Riot grrrl bands often address issues such as rape, domestic abuse, sexuality, racism, patriarchy, classism, anarchism and female empowerment all of which are things you are allowed to talk about in your game, however you must must tag your submissions properly and not violet the itch.io ToS.

Rules

  1. Tag your submissions appropriately!  If there is violence, substance abuse,  mature themes or other such things, please list the types of content within it in your store front page. 
  2. I ask that you keep your content for this jam made for an audience 18 years or younger. I can't and won't complain if you change your content after the jam ends.
  3. Releasing a playable demo is fine.  Whatever work you feel is polished enough to share is encouraged to be posted. 
  4. There are no "winners." Anyone who reaches their goal during the jam is encouraged to submit their game.

You have from Nov 1st till Nov 30th at midnight to submit your game or game adjacent project. 

Things You Can Do

  • Brainstorm, outline, and work on concept art before the jam begins, but please keep final asset and game creation to the one-month jam period!
  • Work solo or in a team! Use the hashtag #GrrlsMakeGames or #GrrlsMakeGamesJam on Twitter or the jam's community here on itch.io to look for collaborators if you'd like to form a team.
  • Use any medium, engine, or operating system to create your project, which could be anything: a tabletop RPG, platformer, interactive narrative, zine, visual novel, sidescroller, or whatever else you'd like to make! It does not have to strictly be a "game." 
  • Use premade and paid assets in your project is also allowed, provided you use them according to the creator's terms.
  • Submit unfinished work if you feel comfortable sharing it; you don't have to submit a perfectly-polished project and are welcome to show off whatever you create as a prototype or proof-of-concept, whether it's an unfinished demo or a collection of assets you were able to create during the jam.

Hello, welcome! I'm thinking of doing a bubblegumshoe hack but an unsure at this moment lol

Hello all, this is a game that I've been working on for a few weeks now for the Summer Novel Fest Jam. Writing is about 98% done. Since its a project of passion and I have basically no budget we're using Deji's placeholder sprites and uncle mugens backgrounds from over on the lemmasoft forums. This is just the prologue to introduce our main character. Any and all feedback is welcomed either via the in game function or on this thread.
