While Ludum Dare is traditionally an online event (make a game from the comfort of your home), many real world happen around Ludum Dare. Currently we are up to 21 gatherings:

Post a comment letting me know where an event is, include a link to further details, and I’ll add it to the list.

  2. deepnight says:

    Once again, we shall meet at our company, Motion Twin in Bordeaux, France. I still need few confirmations to announce any free spot, I will keep you updated too :)

    And if I find a few people to join me and a location also in Linz, Austria.

  5. outlawpoet says:

    There will be a gathering for the theme announcement at Crashspace in Los Angeles, and the space will be full of participants all weekend:

  6. I am planning on hosting a little something in or around Bonifay, Fl, or if more people are located in Panama City, FL area, I may try to host it down there. I just need to find out if there are any LD members around this area. Bonifay is about an hour south of Dothan, AL; hour north of Panama City, FL, and Panama City Beach, FL. Almost two hours west of Tallahassee, FL, and almost two hours east of Pensacola. So is there anyone within reasonable distance to either Bonifay or Panama City? If there is some interest I will go ahead and make sure I have a building available for x amount of people.

    Awww, man, the London one is already filled up.

    Hopefully there will be more in the UK that aren’t more than several hours from where I am (sorry Aberdeen ;-)).

  12. timgarbos says:

    We will do something in Copenhagen, Denmark.

  13. laaph says:

    The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment (, in Oakland, CA (just across the bay from San Francisco!) will be hosting a real-world gathering. It’s not on the schedule yet, and it’s quite likely we won’t get to run rampant there at all hours (ie, you will have to leave at night), but something will happen there.

    Also, to all gamers in the bay area, if you haven’t checked out the Made, you should. More dork history crammed in to one space than you’ll ever find anywhere else. They’ve got all sorts of systems from all sorts of eras from the ColecoVision to the NES to modern (but not exactly this year modern) systems – but here is the kicker – they have things that WORK! Yes, their ColecoVision, their Atari, their NeoGeo works. Amazing but true. Go visit them during visiting hours (which is usually Saturday and Sunday but go see their webpage for exact details).

  14. Skoggy says:

    Kwartzlab, a HackerSpace in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada will be hosting a gathering.

    I don’t think anything will be provided but space, power, wifi, and company.

    Hi guys,

    I noticed you put the link for MADE to the comment I posted. It would be awesome if you could link it to where you can find more information about the space (importantly, how to get there). We are still sorting out the scheduling but we have the space for large amounts of time on Friday, Saturday and Sunday (note that Sat/Sun are MADE’s open hours so random people may come and go). I expect the calendar will reflect the event tomorrow.

    However, the real reason I came back to comment is that it would be awesome if you would email me at jbell(insertthenumeralfor nine here)@ and let me know if you are coming! While I have a guess of how many people will show up, it would be nice if I have a better estimate so I can plan accordingly.

    We’ll also plan to stream the event as of saturday afternoon at:

    It’ll be a fairly multidisciplinary event with mostly CS students from various different establishments (IUT and FdS for those in the know) plus some professionals (Guillaume from Swing Swing), a game-commentator (Pierrec from and a couple from the Arts university doing cinema and game design respectively.
