    Wait, I thought the theme was “internal server error”. Now it’s changed to “Discovery”?

    Damn, I had a great idea with some friends for the theme Containment… Well, some other time then… Time to create a game plan :-)

  3. Chaoseed says:

    …”Discovery”? Seriously? You guys couldn’t make it any more vague or all-encompassing? I mean, making a game that’s NOT about discovery, THAT would be a real challenge…

    Discovery? BLEEURGGHHHH!!!!!!

    Ive only participated in one competion before this, Yoyogames Comp06. The theme was Discovery. I was looking forward to something….. different! :/

    ZOMG discovery is pretty cool but I doubt I will have time while visiting my wife’s family. :-)

  7. Cosine says:

    I don’t like this theme, because I already did a contest with the same theme. Namely, the one guitarman4545 pointed out. It’s really not that great. I don’t foresee anything innovative coming out of this one. C’mon people, prove me wrong!

  8. Sakar says:

    Welp, I won’t be doing anything particularly innovative with this theme, but my game should be at least…interesting.

  9. Discovery is a wonderful theme! Get creative, people! Imagine a game that starts with a treasure map. Or the unknown of darkness, fog or a mystery. Imagine a ship, or a cave, or a castle, or a puzzle. Search for treasure, knowledge or magic. Discover the game developer inside of you, stop complaining about the theme, and use your imagination! You may just discover a fantastic game hiding in there.

    Iron Chef has had battle broccoli, battle asparagus, etc… battle onions is only a matter of time. And why not…

    PS – What does Ludum mean? I tried looking in a latin dictionary and found ludus means school – or game… but couldn’t find anything much on Ludum.
