In celebration of LGBTQ History Month, we will be holding our second annual LGBTQ+ Game Jam, a day long “hackathon” dedicated to creating games, interactive artwork, and stories inspired by LGBTQ+ contributions to history and culture!
We will have Construct 3, Twine, and Ren’Py instruction available for beginners! We will also have analog game making materials for anyone who wants to make a board or card game!

Everyone is welcome to take part in this public game making event, and first time creators are highly encouraged to participate.

Participants are invited to gather in the TVCOG ThinQubator at 10am on Sunday in order to join in the event kickoff, which will feature a brief word of welcome from the organizers, an introduction to our team of volunteer mentors and a chance for you to meet the other participants.
