And that was Ludum Dare 17

What an incredible turn-out for our first competition of 2010! When the smoke cleared, we had 205 entries, but I received a request by the author to remove one. There was also a brief blackout (?) with one of the entries, bringing us down to a total of 203, but that mystery entry came back (somehow). Hooray!

Numerical nuances aside, HOLY COW! We did over 200 games! Congratz, and thank you everyone for making Ludum Dare 17 such an incredible success!

Ludum Dare 18 coming August 2010

Our previous record was 144 entries in August of 2009, and the way things are looking, Ludum Dare 18 should eclipse that. Continuing our regular 4 month schedule, Ludum Dare 18 will be in August, date to finalized as it gets closer.
