HCM Discord Community

    • Healthy Coping Mechanisms is a tongue-in-cheek discord community built to support and encourage work-life balance and healthy game development environments. We aim to promote good personal work habits while providing a fun and friendly community of incredible artists, developers, musicians, and more.

      We were originally a community of friends that went to university together, but have expanded to include dozens of creators from all over the country.

      Our jam site has some specific rules:
      - No games that glorify racism, bigotry, or hate. By all means, make something that discusses those topics, but they're not funny comedy moments for you to cackle about while everyone gets offended. Nuance, care, and an appropriate level of gravitas should be given when discussing difficult topics.
      - Pronouns and provided names are law. If someone tells you their pronouns and name, that's what they are. You don't get to argue.
      - Do not, under any circumstances, set a precedent for unhealthy behavior in your jam team. Some folks like to go really hard in the paint for this one, and that's their prerogative. But we're not AAA, so relax about it. That said, it would behoove you to state what your availability might look like so your team can plan their project accordingly.
