Earlier this month, Jillian and I introduced Sugar, Sweets, & Jam to the FemHype community—our first official game jam based around sugary sweets and queer relationships! Last week, we opened up the official itch.io page and community section for developers. Today, we’d like to officially announce that Sugar, Sweets, & Jam has begun!
That’s right: as of today, January 21, 2016 at 12 AM EST, all developers are welcome to begin working on their in-game assets! Everyone has until May 1, 2016 at 12 AM EST to submit their work to the itch.io submission page.
Now, as Sugar, Sweets, & Jam developers begin designing their games, they might need a few additional resources to rely on. Have no fear! The following are a collection of programs, sites, and assets that can be used to help streamline the development process.
Hosting Sugar, Sweets, & Jam has been a real pleasure so far. There’s already several game development teams lined up for the jam, and we can’t wait to see what the FemHype community has in store for May.
If you’d like to chat with other Sugar, Sweets, & Jam developers on Tumblr or Twitter, feel free to use the #SweetsJam hashtag. And if you have any questions, make sure to send Ana or Jillian an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com (respectively).
Good luck to everyone participating. We look forward to seeing your games come along in the next couple months!
