    Heyo! We’ll be jamming in person via the Portland Indie Game Squad at! Since the actual jam date was so recently confirmed, I’m still making sure we can get our location together and such, but I’ll link you the official flyer and other deets when they’re online! At least a month out.

  2. boringprogrammer says:

    I will be jamming from Aarhus Denmark. If anyone in the area is interested in jamming together feel free to write me up!

    We will be hosting a Ludum Dare Jam at the Tinkermill in Longmont, Colorado. It may not be at our current location, but you can see where we are hosting it in Longmont on our website If you’re in the area and want to jam with other people, come join us!

  4. The ‘Ludum Dare Gogogo’ is an event that attempts to bring together staff of the Brazilian territory and abroad to join here on the event page and publish their work, share experiences and even help as we can on the Ludum Dare 29 edition!! ONLINE!
    We held a conference at the end passing the vision we had of the issue.

    If anyone here from or near Indianapolis is interested, I will probably be there staying with some relatives around LD time. It would be awesome if we could arrange a meet up for the duration of the LD jam.

    I don’t know the place very well since I’ve only stayed there for a couple of months before, so I’m open to suggestions for location and such.

    The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment will be hosting its real-world meetup as per usual. I haven’t made a blog post about it yet. It is in fact on the schedule at the MADE. And, sign up here!

    Hope to see everyone! I plan on building a GTAV clone MMORPG with lasers and a spaceship game as a hidden game underneath and a tech tree that goes from “bang two rocks together” to “rewind space and time back to the big bang” and a simulation of all the universes. Then, probably all the features will be dropped at the last moment and whittled down to all that I had time for, which was a 2048 clone, which I will have to come up creative ways to make it fit in the theme somehow.

  30. I will be hosting a game jam at the same time as Ludum Dare with participants all over the world, the core idea behind the game play is that it is hosted in the middle of nowhere near highlands of north Iceland on a farm with no internet connection. Therefor we can not promise we will actually submit the games to ludum dare but we will consider following the theme and perhaps submit afterwards. :)
