Leading voice in the indie game space, IndieCade, is teaming up with indie developers to host a new online game jam, Resist Jam.
This new event will be focused on the growing global resistance and organized in response to the increasing authoritarianism happening around the world.
Tyler Coleman of Retora Games and one of the founders of Resist Jam said, “Our objective is to harness the creativity of indie developers from around the globe and get as many people making games as possible. We will have online workshops before the jam and around-the-clock support from expert mentors in all fields of game development. Diverse and inclusive gamedev is the best gamedev.”
IndieCade’s founder and CEO Stephanie Parish said, “When we were approached by Tyler and Damon Reece about supporting Resist Jam, we knew it was the right thing to do. IndieCade’s mission is about diversity and inclusivity and we know that our community will enthusiastically embrace this initiative.”
The event launches March 3rd, and all the games will be available on itch.io, the open marketplace for indie games. All proceeds will be split amongst various global charities.
WHEN: March 3rd-11th (Between GDC and SXSW)
WHERE: Online https://itch.io/jam/3571/
GAMES: With over 200 expected participants, jammers are encouraged to create games about diverse topics focused on tolerance, global freedom and peaceful resistance.
