To celebrate 150 Jammers joining Rainbow Jam 18 on itch.io we are sharing a quick preview of the theme diversifiers. These are just two of the diversifiers that will be part of Rainbow Jam 18, the rest will be announced an hour before the jam starts!
Theme Diversifiers are aimed at providing motivation for experienced game jammers. In a sense diversifiers are a voluntary list of secondary constraints, that the individuals and teams can choose to go for, or not, as they please. If they do go for one or more diversifiers, they get to check off those diversifiers as fulfilled when uploading their game.
Your game features at least two character who identify as women who talk to each other about something other than a man. This was one of our favourite diversifiers from Rainbow Jam 17 and we are excited to include this again!
Queerly Represents Me Diversifier – Intersectionality
This game explores stories at the intersections of marginalised identities. This theme was chosen by our Rainbow Jam 18 partner Queerly Represents Me. Diversity in games is incredibly important to both us and the Queerly Represents Me team, so we encourage anyone taking part in Rainbow Jam 18 to not only explore queer themes, but also the cross over of various forms of social stratification: such as class, race, age, and disabilities.
We are now just over 24 hours away from the start of Rainbow Game Jam 2018!
