The general idea of the jam is to make more games (mostly visual novels, but it doesn't necessarily have to be) about queer women and their relationships! We're pretty lenient about how "yuri" the game has to be--all we ask is that the game focuses on relationships between women, whether they be friendships, romantic relationships, tension-filled rivalries, or really whatever you can think of. We're running this survey until July 6th to get an idea of who's participating, what they're making, and what they'd like to see from other creators.
I'll be updating this post with more links and information as we get closer to the jam start date. Feel free to PM me or reply to this thread with questions, comments, concerns, etc.
Our official Tumblr is now up at http://yurigamejam.tumblr.com/ and our itch.io page is at http://itch.io/jam/yuri-game-jam. The Tumblr has links to an FAQ and About page, and you'll be able to submit your game on the itch.io page when the jam starts.
Feel free to contact us on Twitter @carrogath or @kittykatstargal. Our official (???) hashtag is #yurijam.
