nearly time to kick off our latest and greatest event yet: Ludum Dare 22. Final Round theme voting now live, so go cast your vote for the theme. Prior results are here.
This time around there are several real world jams and gatherings going on over the weekend, far more than we’ve ever had. For a complete list, go here.
Also, since live video streams seem popular lately, we’ve set up a link on the front page for them. Find a complete list over here.
We’re running on a brand new server, introduced (unfortunately) half way through the last event. We (Phil specifically) went through and did a lot of optimizations to our site code. Removing excessive SQL queries, disabling unnecessary plugins, and making numerous other tweaks. We’re hoping this time we have it right. We’ll be keeping a close eye to make sure everything still works. If we’re lucky, Phil and I will have a chance to make entries ourselves!
On with the festivities!
Keynote TRIPLE Feature!
First up is long time veteran Fydo. I’ve been trying to recruit him to do a keynote for a while now. Finally, on a whim, he said yes, and this is this result:
Next up is LD veteran NeiloGD. He wanted to do a keynote, several folks in the #LudumDare IRC wanted him to do a keynote, so who are we to argue?
So there you have it. 30 minutes of prepared video content, and several live video streams broadcasting over the weekend. And who-knows how many timelapse videos by the end.
Lets see if we can break 599 entries this time.
