First LD – here I come!

So here we are my fellow game enthusiasts!

I participate for the first time in Ludum Dare, but got a bit experience at the last two Global Game Jams. I will meet up with two friends of mine here in Germany (Düsseldorf) and code the heck out of my machine. Well I have the feeling I will be the graphics-guy.
Some things I learned from the Global Game Jams:

  • Plan your game carefully – then cut half of the planned features out.
  • Define goals for the players. Our first game was nice and shiny, but there was nothing you could really do to “win” the game.
  • Don’t eat too much. You will feel sleepy and uncomfortable afterwards. But drink a LOT!
  • Last but not least: It’s not about the result. Game Jams are made for the experience you have during the event.

I am excited as hell though there are still 4.5 days left. And that’s fantastic!
So then… let the game creation begin! 😀

    Hi there, welcome to LD!

    As you’ve done some of the Global Game Jams it looks like you already have experience, you still might want to check the ‘Tips’ section, which you can find in the sidebar on the right of the side!

    Good luck with your first LD!
    I look forward to playing your game!
