I (Robin Ek, TGG) had no idea what ResistJam was all about until I was informed about its existence earlier today. Well, for those who don’t know what ResistJam is all about, this is the actual official description of the event/game jam:

“#ResistJam is an online game jam about creating games that resist oppressive authoritarianism in all its forms, in partnership with IndieCade. It differs from most game jams in that we’re providing mentorship and workshops from experienced members of the game industry to make sure that as many people as possible can participate, no matter their skill level. Our objective is to empower jammers to make amazing and powerful games by focusing on diversity and inclusion.” – ResistJam

Would you like some social activism, politics and SJW propaganda with your game (s)? Alrighty then!

It’s not all that hard to see a political/social activism pattern among the ResistJam games.

In other words, ResistJam is like the video game version of the “Rock Against Bush” event (only this time it’s Trump instead of Bush). Well, I have no problem with that, as that’s what freedom of speech is for (indie game developers can submit their games from March 4th 2017 at 2:30 AM to Tomorrow at 1:30 AM ). However, I couldn’t help to notice the high levels of social activism, political correctness and SJW nonsense that’s to be found on ResistJam’s homepage.

I wonder how long it will take before “Abrams Tank” get pulled from the ResistJam homepage? (well, either that or a huge change of the product description for the game).

That is also why I found it to be somewhat odd that the description for “Abrams Tank” sounds like something from an episode of South Park (as seen in the picture above). So I take it that the person who published that text did it so in-order to troll ResistJam as a whole? Because I hardly doubt that the following text goes hand in hand with ResistJam’s believes and agendas:

“You’re the non binary non cisgendered fluid pan sexual grey alien they contact when things go really Trumped up. You’re the non binary non cisgendered fluid pan sexual grey alien that gets things like social justice done. And you have been summoned here for a reason.

There’s inmigrant people to rescue, racist mutants to kill, hair to dye, hashtags to trend. Get in, rescue/kill, get out. Without any questions. That’s your priority. Politics, flags, loyalties, or even the thrill of the ride, you aren’t concerned with none of that. Your single concern is the meeting the objective of social progressiveness, with deadly precision or else your failure will be seen from social media.

Abrams resists a retro pixelated fps which praises pplzs differences and diversity, preaches inclusion, and stands proud with our different communities to fight against the oppressive new regime and do a statement about social justice.”

Well, I think it’s safe to say that it’s quite obvious that the text is making fun out of SJWs and those who are anti-Trump. Nevertheless, I couldn’t help to think about the social activism events that went down at GDC 17 when I read through the ResistJam homepage…So I truly hope that this is not the new norm for game jams, Gaming events and game development as a whole, because then the world of games will end up looking like the reality of today’s Sweden (the nr 1 SJW/PC country in the world). Simply put, you can kiss most of your favorite game titles and series good-bye. As they most likely will have to under go an SJW transformation in-order to please the PC-police…I guess that we just have to wait and see. I will do what I can to fight against any attempts of that kind though.

And with that said, what’s your take on this matter? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section down below!

  • RichardGristle

    The fact that this is able to even exist means that there’s no “authoritarianism” for them to resist against (unless they mean Islam or N.K.)

    It’s insane just how retarded these people are getting.

    • You should see the Swedish MSM and government…

  • John Smith.

    Hey, look at that, they can make their own events. So where’s the problem, I don’t see Storm Troopers, Nazis or any other forms of authoritarianism oppressing them. Except of course for the fat, transgendered, non binary, transcolored lesbian fat lovers who screech at anything they find offensive in life.

    • Exactly…But they want to make the whole world like that.

  • Let’s face it, #ResistJam looks to be very obviously yet another SJW/feminist piece of turd, judging by their language, buzzwords and the PC crap found on their homepage.

    Because we all know that when these types say “diversity” and “inclusion” it doesn’t actually mean the dictionary definitions of those words. Instead, it really means “anyone except straight white men”, “anyone except straight male gamers” and “you can only make the kind of games we approve of”.

    So I truly hope that this is not the new norm for game jams

    It will be, because like any movement/event that’s related to gaming, it will under intense scrutiny by the SJW PC Police. If ResistJam does anything the SJW brigade dissapproves of, they’ll log onto social media, get the pitchforks out and whine until they get what they want.

    So it’s ironic, because the people (SJWs, feminists, etc.) who claim to be for “diversity” and “inclusion” are the authoritarians doing the oppressing.

    Well, I have no problem with that, as that’s what freedom of speech is for [on ResistJam setting up their own event]

    Yeah, agreed there. They should be able to set up their own events, I have no problems with that.

    The question is, do ResistJam discriminate against and oppress others for the sake of “diversity” and “inclusion”?

    ” #ResistJam is an online game jam about creating games that resist oppressive authoritarianism in all its forms “

    I wonder how true that is? Maybe a straight white male developer should make a fan-service game with sexy female characters and loads of boobs and see what kind of reaction he gets from ResistJam.

    • If I didn’t know better, I would think that the whole event was sponsored and created by the Swedish government.
