MayanWell we survived 2012 long enough to see the end of the year, and the end of our 25th event.

December’s event saw a whopping 1327 entries, bringing our outrageous total for the year to 4651! That’s right. Four thousand, six hundred and fifty one games made in the year of 2012. That’s more than most game consoles!

Without further ado, here are the results:

    Ludum Dare resulted in some great games again. It’s been a fun ride, hope to see you guys next time!

    Always glad to see people appreciated the effort I put into my game, especially audio and innovation. Except the world was not yet ready for the fun it had to offer…

    Can’t believe I got top 10 Innovation :O Can’t wait to have another go next time!

    I got 9th place in the Jam for humour!

    Thanks so much! This was my first entry and that made me so happy.

    I really can’t believe how welcoming a community this is. I’m definitely going to enter again in future, after everyone was so nice.

    Thanks Ludum Dare!

  11. crashbanito says:

    I got 27th in audio. Wow, I cannot stress how much of a surprise that was. Thanks for the votes guys and congratulations to the top contestants.

  12. Raptor85 says:

    scored N/A in every single category, with every single comment on my game being “Sorry, no linux, can’t run” (and one guy who didn’t have opengl support)….can we maybe not count N/A across the board votes to the default score or coolness so that people don’t just rate games they can’t even run and get them off the lists, i mean, if you’re on windows why are you browsing to and rating linux only games???

  13. deepnight says:

    Thanks a LOT for all the kind comments :) I’m sooo glad people liked my entry!

    Wish the best to all of you for the upcoming year! Join in on #OneGameAMonth on Twitter! And of course, I’m desperately waiting for the next LD…
