WELCOME TO THE FIRST CLE GAME CO-OP JAM OF 2017!
This is a great opportunity to both get back involved with the group and the community as well as warm up for our SUPER SPECIAL AWESOME Health Game Jam in May!
Personally, I'd love to see all the old faces that haven't been around very much join back in with the enthusiasm they once shared! =)
Ludum Dare is a combo competition + jam game jam. It includes a 48hr game competition (solo devs only, w rules n stuff) & a more relaxed 72 hr jam (open to teams). And, has been running ~3 times a year since 2002. It's probably the single best known game jam (yes, inc GGJ). I even heard Notch jammed last time.
Ludum Dare 38 jam kicks off 4/21 @ 9PM and runs 72 hrs to Monday night at 9PM. In LD31, our team took 3rd in Audio and #214 overall.
This meet will be to kickoff the jam by accessing skills, assigning roles, getting the theme announcement, brainstorming ideas, picking one (or two if we have enough people) and getting down to work.
After Friday night, we'll break and work remotely for the rest of the jam. We'll stay in touch over IRC and/or Skype etc as needed. However, you will still be expected to work on your role/part for the remainder of the weekend. Submissions aren't due until Monday night, but we'll try to finish everything on Sunday so that we only have packaging, submitting etc for Monday (since most of us have to go back to work on Monday).

The LD31 Kickoff took place at The Side Quest bar in Lakewood, which worked really well (the guys at Side Quest were great). But, location is still TBD.
