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!

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.

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!

And the Stonewall Riots were 51 years ago, meaning this should've been last year's event. :I
Maybe she started counting at 0.

On the 51st day, the queer people did rest.

The third, actually, and a little bit in-between to ask "shall we go again?"

Having gotten my first 4/5, I must now work hard to obtain... my second 4/5.

So, for this event, I'll be taking my shot at the "short melancholic puzzle adventure" thing. Wish me luck.
I want to try this, but I dont know anyone to team up with

You can also make a game by yourself! I'm doing that, in fact, I think most people are. I see you've already made a game by yourself once, so why not?

But they did their first march on the anniversary of the stonewall riots. So it is 50 years since the first pride marches.
What Fomar said.

Sorry am on phone so excuse any shorthand and such. No internet at new house.

I will change the represenatation error (my phone hated that word) when I have internet again.

I counted the dates wrong. Was in a rush so I will fix that when I return back too (I will definitely get back before the end of the event, no worries).

You can team up or make games by yourself. You can use something like an orc seeking gay love or being out of place in the elf society they were born in. That kind of thing - with fantastic elements - is fine, but keep in mind that it is a Pride game event, stretched to include other minority groups so no straight white bois saving pretty white princess and living happily ever after.

You know the drop.

I've already exhausted that idea in my flagship game, with the emphasis on "our street" and a slapped on prison sentence when Johnny Law comes knocking*... and it wasn't even June! Choke on that, Bethesda (and 100% of the others worldwide).

Did some research into the neurodiversity angle of things. I can safely say that this isn't going to be the big focus of my game. I still wanna hint that Raziya is autism-coded, but I do that with stuff to begin with. There'll be writing on the wall, but it's better I focus on the trans narrative, I think.

Thus far, planned a good amount of the big cutscenes, at least as a first draft. I'd be tempted to ask for proofreaders. Maybe.

I'm making an Yume Nikki fangame that I have been planning for a while. It's called Yume Nikki - Azure/Vermilion Re:Union. I had another game planned on this topic, but sadly I could not be completed until both Meteo Chronicles and it's sequel Zero Gear Chronicles were completed since its the third game in a trilogy. Maybe next year?

If you decide you need a proofreader send me a PM!

I want to make something incredibly gay and pink! I have this idea in my mind for a battle system where the battle music changes tempo/pitch/instruments based on the moves you use or states you're in I think could be cute. If there's anybody who does music who is interested send me a pm also!

Otherwise, I'll just work alone~ Here is hoping I have learned enough from previous events how to get something nice done fast!
