BIEBER CHALLENGE

This is an official challenge to all Ludum Dare gamedevs.

This weekend, your quest is to put a BIEBER somewhere in your game as an “easter egg”.

This “Bieber challange” will be like a meta game in which everyone tries to find the kittens in each game they play. You know you want to.

Do it – for the love of Bieber. For the love of meta. For the love of all things LD48.

Edit: I was cool enough to make an icon that you should put in your game title screen or game thumbnail screenshots so we know to look for your Bieber:

    Uhg, not more context-driven themes!

    I’m not into the 12-year-old-game-dev culture here people! I don’t know where these stupid ideas come from, but I know they have to do with the festering popularity contest raging in the bowels of 4chan and the rest of the internet.

    Clearly, “You only get one” is a huge context-driven theme based on a few recently popular crappy games that have given you “Just one” match, or “Just one” bullet.

    I’m assuming break the system comes from a recent influx of crappy games that involve purposefully-glitching programs and broken English (System break, so excite!).

    Why can’t we just have basic one-word themes that aren’t being up-voted based on any particular pop-culture context?

    Yeah. I’m not doing this. Potatoes, fine. Even “downvote me” or stuff like that, okay, I’ll work with that. But everyone has there limits and this is mine :)

    Is it legal to use a justin bieber song downloaded from youtube in the game?

    • thedeadlybutter says:

      Even though it’s for non commercial use you cannot use it. Will anyone send you a takedown request / copyright infringement for a silly LD game? No.

  6. YellowLime says:

    why

    maybe

    I look at the joke themes as a challenge. “Are you good enough a game dev to make something interesting out of this silly idea?” I have been surprised by the brilliance of some of the previous joke theme implementations and I am sure some of us will do like wise for Bieber.
