Been scouring through the blog, finding many poor souls seeking teammates but getting little to no response. Thought I’d try and compile a list to help out.

If you want to be added to this list, please provide a link to your blog post. If you want me to remove you from this list, or if I’ve misinterpreted your main role or what sort of people you are looking for, do tell.

Will keep this updated as well as I can until it starts, at which point I’ll go jamming and that’s the end of it! c:

If someone strikes your interest, click the link to go over to their post and leave a comment there rather than here (or better, if they’ve provided contact information in their post, use that).


  • Programmer (aschab) seeking designer: link
  • Programmer (paruthidotexe) seeking artist: link
  • Programmer (LooksLikeSomething) seeking musician: link
  • Programmer (Nilq) seeking artist + musician: link
  • Programmer (Aaranos) seeking artist + musician: link
  • Programmer (Nefarious Fox) seeking artist + musician: link
  • Programmer (miracleJester) seeking anybody: link
  • Programmer (Carter9510) seeking anybody: link
  • Programmer (Grahhhhh) seeking anybody: link


  • Musician (Mistrust) seeking programmer: link
  • Musician (Emanuel.Hihn) seeking anybody: link
  • Musician (pazuzu555) seeking anybody: link
  • Musician (etalaba) seeking anybody: link


  • “Developer” (programmer?) (Cocalero) seeking artist + musician: link

I went back through the blog about two months, so if I’ve accidentally caught somebody who was really referring to Mini LD, oops! Do tell.

I’m in (for the 11th time)

About three years ago I joined Ludum Dare for the first time. I had never finished a game before and had little to no knowledge. Thanks to Ludum Dare I discovered an amazing community and fell in love with gamedev. Since then I have been working non-stop, joined dozens of jams and even became a full-time indiedev, something that makes me start every day with a smile on my face.


This is going to be my 11th Ludum Dare, haven’t missed one since I started and I’m as excited as the first time. I would like to make something a little bit more action-packed than what I usually do, but I would also like to make something that encourages players to be more creative, who knows what we’ll make once the theme is announced?

This time I’ll be joining the jam (instead of the compo) along Oluwa(art) and Celer(music & sound), so I’ll take care of design and code. We’ll jam in the same place as other local gamedevs who we know, so I’m sure it’ll be really fun.

I can’t wait for it to start, but I’m equally excited about watching McFunkypants‘ keynote video. If you aren’t sure about joining in just forget all those excuses and get your tools ready. This weekend there will be lots of creative moments, brainstormings, bugs and crashes, but at the end of it, we’ll have a new game finished.

Best of luck to everyone! I’ll be sharing my progress on twitter, don’t forget to upload gifs! I want to see what you come up with :-)

P.D.: If you think you can’t join the jam because you aren’t skilled enough you should know that’s a really bad excuse ;-P

I’m in!

I’m going to participate in this Ludum Dare (Compo). I hope I’ll find good idea for my game.

I’ll be using:

  • Unity as my game engine
  • C# as my programming language
  • maybe Zenject as DI framework
  • VS for coding on my PC or VS Code on my Mac (it has pretty good integration with Unity using OmniSharp VSCode plugin and VSCode package (available at Asset Store))
  • Aseprite for graphics (if I decide to make pixel art), or Inkscape + GIMP
  • (B/S/C/US)fxr for sound effects
  • GarageBand for music

I’m In

First time, always wanted to participate. Probably will use HTML5 but I might do Unity instead depending on the theme.

I use GIMP/Inkscape for all my graphics needs. I can’t draw so I tend to go for a minimalist style, which sometimes turns out good, other times not so much. See for yourself.

Rotund table is in the works

joining in my first ludum dare

Unity / C# is pretty much all i can do at the moment. (still a newb even with that 😀 )

made few games before, but will be interesting to take on making a game in like, 2 exact days. especially since im quite slow to begin with, i guess this will be good practice for me.

my goal is basically to learn a lot, since im still in my learning phase.

good luck everyone and have fun :)

I’m in!

Plans change, I wasn’t supposed to take part this time, but sometimes the pieces fall in a way that makes other stuff possible!

So yay! I’m in again!

It’s very likely I’ll be using Phaser, and if you also would like to use Phaser, feel free to use my template that will help you set up an auto-building project easily. You can find it in I just updated it to use the latest Phaser (2.6.1)
