Resist Jam invites you to make a game to combat authoritarianism on March 3

If you can resist playing Zelda on the Nintendo Switch when it launches on March 3, you may just save the real world.

Our friends at IndieCade and a group of experienced game developers have joined forces to create Resist Jam, an online game jam dedicated to fighting the global rise of authoritarianism. The inaugural Resist Jam will take place from Mar. 3-11 and will be hosted through, an indie game marketplace where the games will also be sold. All proceeds will be split among different global charities.

IndieCade, one of the biggest advocates for diversity and inclusivity in games, is a natural fit to lead this resistance alongside the game devs.

You can join the jam and learn more about it on Resist Jam’s official page and use #ResistJam to help you find a team.
