The 2021 Yaoi Game Jam starts in July. I wanted to make a thread in anticipation of this to discuss game design so people can start brainstorming and build momentum.
Emphasis on game. Because the theme of the jam is gay relationships people tend to focus on narratives. As a result The Yaoi Game Jam looks more like The Yaoi VN Jam. There's nothing really to play.
Hence the title of thread, Ludology. The study of gaming. From latin "ludere" meaning "to play".
Luck. Chance. Skill. Rewards. Point conversion. Game Overs.
