Wow, and that was Ludum Dare 14.

A humongous turn out this year, with a whopping 121 entries for the deadline. Easily a new record for us. A great way to kick off year 7 of the competition.

As usual, voting will last for 2 weeks. Hit the “View Final Ludum Dare 14 Entries” link at the top of the page to view and vote for entries. Only people that submitted an entry will have the option of voting. If we get enough demand on the last few days of voting, we may consider pushing the date back a few more.

If there’s anyone that was maybe unable to upload or link their entry properly, respond to this post or contact the administration inside the IRC chat room, and we’ll give you hand.

The next major competition will be in August this year. Subscribe to the mailing list, or follow our twitter to stay informed.

Looking for more? In the off months we also do monthly challenges called the “Mini LD”, where Ludum Dare veterans give you a theme to try making something from. They occur usually on the first weekend of every month, but do stop by to double check. See the Wiki for more information.

Congratulations, and thanks everyone for making Ludum Dare 14 a huge success.

    I’m really looking forward to August. I wish I could have spent more time on my entry this time. For August I’m going to block that weekend out an ensure that nothing can impinge.

    Okay my mistake. I didn’t realize you had to hit “Publish”(extremely new to word press). The post was was originally made before the compo ended, will I still be able to compete?

    i was a bit late with the screenshot and the (second) final post yesterday, because wasn’t really used to WordPress. and my time was simply running out too. but i didn’t change anything on the game after the deadline…
