The Yuri Game Jam is a 2-month long game jam taking place from September 1st to October 31st, with the intention of creating more games about relationships between women.
There are two rules to the jam:
- Your story must be about a relationship between two or more women.
- If the story features romance, the characters should be implicitly or explicitly queer.
Q: Is there any other theme or restriction to conform to, other than the above stated rules?
A: Nope! As long as it abides by the rules, anything goes. 18+, threesomes, platformers, puzzle games, 18+ platformer-puzzle games featuring threesomes… Be as kinky or as chaste as you want, and use whatever gameplay elements you like. The creators of the jam came from a visual novel background, but as long as the game has a story that abides by the rules, we’ll take it.
Q: Are demos allowed, or do they have to be full games? What about translations?
A: Demos are allowed! Someone already asked us whether translations of existing yuri games are OK, and they are as long as you have permission from the original creator. We’re flexible as long as the entries follow the rules. In general, however, we’d like the majority of games to be created for the purpose of submitting to the jam.
Q: Any helpful links to get started?
A: Of course! We’ll be updating the Yuri Game Jam frequently here (along with answering questions), but there are other ways to reach us or keep track of the jam.
There is a Lemmasoft thread where you can also ask questions and find fellow teammates.
