It’s just about time for the big two-oh, kicking off our 9th year with the first event of 2011!
2010 was an amazing year for Ludum Dare, with over 800 games created by the community! We’re always optimistic, but have extremely high hopes for 2011! Will we break 1000?
Last year we introduced the October Challenge, a special event that saw 24 people not only finish, but bring games to market (app stores, sponsorship, shareware, donationware, etc). That’ll be back again this October, so stay tuned for that. But we know some people that just couldn’t wait! 1 Month Game started by Sophie Houlden is a shared blog community for those that are up to the challenge. Check it out! And speaking of community, #ScreenshotSaturday is a twitter phenomenon spearheaded by Pekuja that has exploded! Check out the latest images at ScreenshotSaturday.com. And if you’ve ever been curious what the community is up to in addition to Ludum Dare, we have Planet Ludum Dare.
Of course, we can’t forget the Jam at GDC. This past March, on the final day of the Game Developers Conference, several of us attendees met-up at the Noisebridge hacker-space in San Francisco to “hack”. Here’s some photos from the gathering:
Extra special thanks to Terry for suggesting the venue. We hope to see more of you next year.
That’s enough reminiscing. Time to get down to business.
