There's a nonbinary jam every year, I only heard of it recently! All the other entries are on itch at https://itch.io/jam/nonbinarygamejam2021

"Kiwi" and "Bard" are both canon names for the character

Agender flag is a great suggestion! I'll have to do some token crunching to have it fit, but it was something I was planning on trying anyway.

I wrote out a dev log about the flag editor! It's not too technical, and goes into design, implementation, and UI!

Updated cart with more color palettes, and improved usability without a mouse! (Arrow keys can be used to move cursor and X to click)
I'm hoping I can get it fully and easily navigable on a picade, but i fear it's really ambitious to work towards that as an afterthought.

Update 1.3, fixed a crash that came up after removing comments. All backgrounds should work now

P#92358 2021-05-22 15:38

I followed up with another devlog explaining how I used the secondary display palette to show up to 28 colors on screen!

Upload 1.4, which changes the font to be more readable.
This uses p8scii, the command `\-e' can move the cursor backwards - and I can use two overlapping n's to create a better looking m

Oh no - the game crashed when I finished making a flag for Count Vladula and went to submit it:

Edit: it's a very cute game, though! I had fun making a bunch of stars and stuff on the flag.

Thanks for pointing this out! I figured out the issue was coming from non-standard flag shapes and uploaded a fixed verison.

P#94786 2021-07-13 11:57

Aha! Yes, it was a nonstandard flag shape. Thanks!
