Ludum Dare 24

Discuss game development design and post your game ideas

Post » Mon Aug 06, 2012 10:29 am

Hey everyone!

Ludum Dare Homepage

I've never entered Ludum Dare Competition nor Jam before, but I've always been a follower and supporter of the 48 hour challenge.

At this moment submitting ideas for the Theme of the next competition & jam is open.

Click HERE to suggest some themes

For those familiar with Ludum Dare, basically, everyone can suggest themes, and they will open voting for themes, weeding out the plain and boring. Then when the theme is confirmed, you work on a complete game within 48 hours and submit it for judging. Judging is also by votes, and people who have submitted games can vote for other games.

There is no physical prize, but you game gets featured on most indie game websites around the world, pretty much all the fame you need. Notable people like the creator of Minecraft, Notch, has made entries in past competitions.

I urge all the members heres to try their luck when the competition opens on August 24th. I also would be very fond of a community effort game submitted to the Jam!

Anyone feel like joining yet ;)?

I was going to join in the last one, but ran out of time and decided I wouldn't manage to get anything good done by the deadline. This time I'm doing it, regardless of the expected end result. It should be fun.
