hey there, epileptic artist/game designer here! i've been throwing around the idea of hosting a game jam for the month of november -- which is national epilepsy awareness month -- inviting creators to make games about their experiences with epilepsy, whether it be having the condition itself, being close with someone who struggles with epilepsy, etc. also would like to open the jam to anyone who is managing a chronic illness of some kind to tell their story.
the jam would go through all of november so people have plenty of time, and there would be a rule against flashing lights + need specific warnings in regard to loud/incongruent sounds. the definition of "game" would be fairly loose -- as long as the story is interactive in some way, it'd be considered!
i'm trying to gauge interest for the jam and am hoping that people would be interested! if this sounds interesting to you or if you have questions/comments please comment below, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . thank you!!
