The new SJW front

Having lost the #GamerGate battle, SJWs in the game industry are now "resisting fascism". One guess as to how they define fascism?
Resist Jam Info

It’s time to make games, resist fascism, and meet some friends along the way.

Resist Jam is an online game jam themed around resisting fascism in all its forms, organized by a group of experienced game developers. Our objective is to get as many people making games as possible, with 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.

We’re pushing positive change to make the world a better place.

We want to empower people to resist fascism through the power of interactive media. Not everyone can march, or be a figurehead of a movement, but we can all find ways to resist the oppressive hegemonic fascism that pervades modern society. This is one of them.

Upon completion of the jam, we plan on providing the games on itch.io through a pay-what-you-want bundle, with all proceeds split between a number of global and US-based charities. Fascism is a global issue and our giving should reflect that.

Here’s what you need to know.

DATES: The game jam will run between March 3rd and March 11th - right between GDC and SXSW.
WHERE: Online. We’re using itch.io’s excellent game jam hosting system, with support from itch.io staff.
GAMES: We’re aiming to support at least two hundred participants, and are encouraging jammers to create games about diverse and nuanced topics.
QUESTIONS: Direct all your questions to Damon (de@coy.ninja) or
