Ludum Dare is all about building games! It is a game jam ("hackathon"), and we thought it it would be fun to host a meetup for it!
There will be inspiration, and games, and all the things needed to make such things, like power, Internet, and tables and chairs! Bring your own laptop and other tools. Come on down and show us what you can make in a weekend!
The meetup will be informal and it is all about sitting together with other people who love building games.
Not only for programmers, also for people who do graphics, sound and music, writers/level designers, game testers and so on. Depending on the number of people and skills you can do a Team Set Up. We can't guarantee anything though... Or just hang-around and check-out the cool stuff people are building.
You definitely don't have to be a professional or "elite hax0r" to join! We are not! It's about the fun of building a game, no matter what excepectations or requiremnts you might have.
Not yet decided!

Games built in Östersund previously (so you can see that we are not creating AAA-games :-) and you don't have be feel "I could never") : https://www.meetup.com/Ludum-Dare-Ostersund/pages/23301730/Games_made_at_%23LDOSD/
Friday 19:00-23:00: Intro, set up, get to know people, team set up (if possible), test your development pipeline. Will close latest at 23:00, go home and sleep. You will need it!
Saturday 09:00: doors open at 09:00. The theme will be released Saturday 03:00 but most of us will be at sleep then. Discuss the theme, brainstorm, design and so on. Then start creating! Will close latest at 02:00 (Sunday).
Sunday 09:00-16:00: doors open at 09:00. Time to think about how to stop coding... Will close latest at 16:00 but if you joined the Jam you still have one more day. Unfortunately most of us have day-time jobs so we have to end. But you can always finish up the last stuff at home. @15:00 Short presentation of the game you/your group created and let everybody test it.
