Yaoi Game Jam 2016 [June 1st - July 31st]

June 1st - July 31st

Yaoi Game Jam is a two month long summer jam dedicated to making games
—visual novels in particular—featuring male-identified characters in queer relationships.

Traditionally, the term "yaoi," also known as "boy's love," refers to female-oriented works from Japan,
or works inspired by those works, that feature two or more male characters in a romantic relationship.
However, this game jam is open to stories about all kinds of relationships between queer-identified men,
from platonic to romantic, and everything in-between!

This jam was inspired by Yuri Game Jam, which first ran in Fall 2015 (and which we hope will happen again this year!).

Just wanted to say that I'm looking forward to this jam! I think it's an awesome idea to have both a Yaoi and a Yuri Jam. Love for everyone! <3
I'll be participating with Adriana72. We've already started planning and can't wait to see what everyone else creates for this jam. :D

I'm excited for this jam!
I have an idea posted here.
Due to my experience with this sort of thing, I'm waiting for opinions before adding a post to recruitment, haha...

I have to see if I manage to join this since its also time for my university project (plus my personal month challenge is still running). Maybe I simply do this one with one month delay or work on it from the moment I got time till the end (I would have 2 weeks or so?) or something :'D
Hot an idea already in mind, but sadly I guess I won't participate in June :/
But I'll at least watch this closely, I enjoy BxB games and can't wait for the games that might happen ^__^

I thought this was at least a month away THEN I REALISED THAT IT'S ON WEDNESDAY. WHAT AM I GOING TO DO WITH MY LIFE.

Is it okay to finish up a demo instead? I'm thinking of doing Kinghearth, and well, it's kind of. Big. For one person to do by themselves in two months. I haven't even started on any one art asset Σ(゜ロ゜;) (In fact, I was going to give myself until October just to finish the demo but OH WELL)

Sure, go ahead! We allow demos, current wip, ports of games, and translations!
Good luck with your demo!

Yaoi Jam has started! I can't wait to see what everyone else is doing.

Will there be a general recruitment thread for this like there was for NaNoRenO? I know a couple of people who still need help in other areas.

Ah, I think that we should use this thread for recruitment! I don't want to busy the forum with another thread >m<;;;
Also, people can post tumblr/twitter recruitments and we'll reblog and retweet them!
Just remember to tag the posts :D!

Anyways, happy jamming!

Oh okay >< (sorry, haven't been using lsf for anything for a awhile),

If you need to post recruitment in lsf, post it in the proper category of recruitment and label it with Yaoi Game Jam or Yaoi Jam!

This jam is so awesome, I've been sad because there have been so few BxB games that interest me even though I usually like BxB games and stories. Now we're getting a wide variety of BL games and it's gonna be amazing.

I myself am working on a small game currently called "Gay Prince Simulator", it's a game where you run your kingdom and try to come up with excuses to turn down marriage requests from princesses. It's gonna have a storybook-like look but some dark humor so it's not exactly a kid's game. If anyone is interested in joining me, send a PM - I'm probably not gonna have an "official" recruitment thread at least for a while but I could definitely use some help with basically any aspect of game-making.

Going to use this as a reason to finally start that VN project I've had bouncing around in my head for a few years now. I second the excitement for more BXB games. They're so few and far between!
