Description

This year marked the 50th year of the first Pride marches to take place. With so much that has been going on in the world - so much discrimination, hate and ignorance - it's time we step up and shout proudly about who and what we are!

Often various groups are under-appreciated and under-represented.

Our identity is important, and thus, this event to create games with more representation of those who get a bum deal when it comes to this shit. Our culture, our race, our sexuality, our gender. Who we are matters and we deserve to be represented in ways that we can appreciate and share with others.

And thus begins a day for each year taken to throw open the doors of ignorance and expose the world to our flaming amazingness. Or something. Let's gammak!

Theme:

I don't think it needs to be said, but I'm going to say it now so no-one can say I didn't say it earlier - this event is not about representing hate groups nor racial groups that are already over-represented. It's to draw attention to those groups that are under-represented in media. So if I find a game about Brittany the straightest, whitest Cali teen who ever Cali'd and how she is falling in love with Stevie McWhiteboy, the straightest and whitest Cali boi who ever Cali'd, or a game about being a cop who gets to beat down black folk, I will revoke your ability to gammak. Somehow. I'll find a way. So help me Lord Aremen, I will.

Thank you, that is all.

FIFTH! Holy frick, I'm game. Am worried about the time limit, but I did have an idea that I was saving for a Pride '20 event. I can now create it for this one. ;-;

Idk how well I'd be able to represent, well, representation...

If anything though, gam mak with a hard-set deadline is always good to get the creative juices flowing, yes?

Sounds awesome, Ozzy it is time.
Inclusion, especially neurodiversity, is incredibly close to my heart. Let's do this!

I never thought about this. Maybe I have a chance after all.

I have started my journey to get my first 4/5 before dreaming any bigger than that. Gradual and steady does it... hopefully.

for those struggling with ideas, i quote karsu: "i mean if someone wants they can probably just make a game with a gay mc or something, but i think the theme can resonate on many more levels and involves mutable and immutable characteristics of human nature." while a very broad event, i think it opens up a lot of opportunities to explore specific things!

anyway, karsu and i are making a goofy grind game about bureaucracy and how it shuts the disenfranchised out of society. while we're the sort of people who have a distinct vision and don't really want to accomodate, if you want to attach yourself to a project and help out with little things (sprite work, maybe some mapping, testing, giving feedback on documents, or whatever you're good at) i'm open to taking on a few people. again, this is for folks who aren't looking to head a project, just wanna do something for the event. and no pressure if you run out of time or decide the project's not for you!

Agreed. My base idea boiled down to "Raziya is trans; here is more backstory"... but I'm tempted to convey, as a self-insert in various ways, that she miiiight be neurodiverse. If anything, this would be the time to have it be relevant? I hadn't pondered using that for this event before, and I'd prefer not to dilute and/or cheapen the experience. Food for thought.

I'm really too burned out to be making another game already (probably, we'll see XD) but I have to ask something. I feel stupid but...

The two statements "You have 50 days to make your game" and "Event runs from Saturday the 11th July until Monday the 18th August" are hurting my brain. Isn't that like only 39ish days?

Not only that, she set the event for 30 days.
Math seems to be really hard!
