We want your queer and LGBTQI games, game-related projects and creations!

As part of the yearly Gotland Pride celebration, we would like to see all of your inspiring, truthful, beautiful, strange, queer, dreamy, throbbing, challenging, difficult, joyous or riotous explorations of what games are or could be; be it concept art, character designs, demos or finished games, or relevant written stories (for example about how life in the games industry is as a non-binary gender-bender).

The goal is to put together a virtual exhibition of all these works and publish it to the public during Gotland Pride in November.

Deadline for submissions: November 3, 2020 at 23:59.

For more info on how to submit work for the coming virtual exhibition visit the google drive folder and read through the instructions found there: http://shorturl.at/gnrP8

My First Jam 2020

Seven hours to learn a tool, build a game and get to know your fellow students and faculty. That is what My First Jam is about. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we had to go entirely online this time, but that did not stop the fun!

The jam ran yesterday and was organized over at Itch.io. Despite working through a pandemic, 13 games were delivered!

The winners of the game jam are:

Most Fun: Bob Blobinson’s Epic Quest for the Holy Furnitures

Best Interpretation of Theme: Journey to Jimaas

Best execution: The tale of the Ghost Mail Man

You can play all the games over on the Itch.io page!
