Description

The last few years have been rough, especially for those who are part of the LGBT+ community. This month is Pride month, where we come together to celebrate finally being able to come out legally in society and be treated as equals by law.

Of course, with every step forward there are people against. Many people have stories of disregard, disrespect, hate and other negative interactions aimed at them, even over the course of this year. We could get down about the horrible things that might happen in the future, that have happened in the past...

OR

...we could celebrate the good things that have come from the fight for our rights to be who we are and love who we do!


And what better way to celebrate than to


So, your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to make a game that is positive in nature and focuses on either a main character who is LGBT+ or LGBT+ as a theme.



- Start making on the 22nd of June. Finish by midnight of July 14th.
- Games must be at least 10 minutes long.
- You may GATHER resources before that date and make notes about the game, but don't actually start creating (resources or in-engine content) before the official start.
- Games must be positive in nature, especially in regards to LGBT+ themes, and should handle with care the topics you choose to represent. Hate speech is explicitly not allowed and this includes things like killing or flinging insulting remarks towards other groups. People are people, even if they're assholes. Keep it happy, folks! No dark depressive themes here! We're celebrating after all!
- Games must have either a main character who is LGBT+ and focus on them, or the theme based on LGBT+.
- Games must have an approved game page. Get that done and in early!
- Any engine, any resources.
- Please keep in mind that there will likely be a stream for the games, and that youtube is ornery about musical and video use in games. Let's NOT get people's accounts content struck by using stuff like, say, The Emporer's Theme from Star Wars or Warner Bros clips in our games.



- Everyone who takes part will gain a participation badge, worth 20 MS
- Full games will receive another badge on top of that, worth 50 MS
- Every game added will go into the draw for a free game.

I succeeded somehow!

Even if it's not much, I'm proud of finally finishing something and I learned a lot while making it. Hopefully everyone else feels similarly.

I have the basic demo set up the way I want it... not as much as I had originally hoped, only about 40 minutes long when I top-to-tail it. Got distracted by Shadowbringers and cute boys irl. OOPS


I think getting distracted by cute boys is on-brand for this game jam XD

I also didn't finish, but I got a build made and it is now uploaded and available to play! :DDD

Now I can relax and go play everyone else's games ^_^
*Slams down gampage*

Game page approved, download up. Barely made it, but I'm grateful I did.

EDIT: Game page would make things convenient, no? https://rpgmaker.net/games/11191/
Ohhh that's a good idea, I should preemptively apologize for how my game is.

I'm also sorry for how my game is.

ok I love this style. It's like an early NES RPG, before tropes and style got codified
Thanks!! I'm still making a queer game with it, just not for this event because I'm super-slow and need more time ^^'


I wanna play, regardless when it's done :DDD Looks awesome!

(The "game" is approximatively 15-minute long ; RTP not included)

As usual, I seem to have bitten off more than I can chew, so I probably won't have the game finished in time, but I should have a nice demo for it with about an hour of playable content.
I'm currently trying to figure out the engine I'm using, but I'm on track to at least have something for the deadline, whether it's 10 minutes long or not.
I'm still on course to get SOMETHING out for this. Fingers crossed that it doesn't suck!

I'm not sure if I'll actually finish something, but I've drawn some tiles.



This 10-minute rule is too restrictive, most games I've made so far are shorter

Upd.: decided not to participate

You have value. Take care of yourself. Be good to yourself, and to others, Kupo!

I don't think I'll be able to finish anything for this event. Not a big deal, since my idea was very undeveloped, and basically only one big plagiarisation of previous work by Liberty and pianotm. Still, it would have been fun, but I just don't have the time or necessary resources. Maybe some day.

Best of luck to all you other amazing people, though! Make the (game) world a happier place!
hey worms.




i need to make that action window smaller. hmm
it only needs to be 10+ minutes!
