Let's do the Ludum Dare competition

  • Aug 24, 2013 · 10:00 AM

Ludum Dare is a popular game making competition where contestants have a weekend to build a game around the announced theme. The prize is your product.

The competition usually starts around 9 p.m. EST on the Friday of the compo weekend. I'm not entirely sure when the best time of day to meetup and do this would be. Maybe we could have a two day event starting mid-morning on both Saturday and Sunday that goes on until everyone leaves.

The 48 hour competition is solo, but there's an extended 72 hour competition that allows multiple participants, so people in the group could team up if they wanted to.

As for the where, I have no idea.

    Is there still a location for this? I might show up late if I can get to the place... Wish I had seen this sooner

      Unfortunately no, I can't make it today anyway. If you want to coordinate something Justin Herrick, the other RSVP'er, that might work :)

    I'm terrible at game dev but I'd participate in the next one. This weekend is no good for me. :(

      Oh please, looking at your track record I'm sure you'd do fine :)
      Too bad you're booked this weekend though! Maybe the next one :)

    Sorry Sky, somehow I didn't see the emails from this event until your last comment.

    Really wish this would be announced so people would see it

    Both times I've entered I've spent about 24 hours total over the course of the 48 hour period. Some people spend a lot less time, some a lot more. I'm not sure if we should try to meetup for a majority of the allotted time, or have a kick off event Friday night and a closing event on Monday night to play each other's games when all the games are finished and submitted (ideally).

    I'm also not sure on location, there are probably people who know better places than I do for this sort of thing. I suppose in general though there should be food, means for discussion, but also seats to work comfortably in.
