MiniLD 54 – The Race to October

It’s beautiful isn’t it? Admire it. Yes… the excellent craftsmanship, love, care, and attention you put into every detail of the game you just made.

Oh, I’m getting a bit ahead of myself am I? I’m rushing ahead to the good part. Trying to pass all the motivational stuff and get right to…

The Theme of MiniLD 54:


What Kind of Race?


Any kind! Racing games can come in many forms.

They can be traditional racing of Vrooom! Vroooooom! around a track and beat your opponents.

You can race to eat as many guavas as you can before the world runs out of them.

Or who knows, what if you make a game that’s made entirely of race conditions and have to hopefully win the game before the game crashes?

Interpret this however you’d like

What Are the Rules?


Rules are pretty relaxed.  Work with whomever you choose, and whenever you want. Try to only spend 48 hours on it though, but if you really want to spend more, just let everyone know that  in your submission.

Also note: no restrictions on assets and such other than you must have the right to use them.

The Mini has begun and will end on September 29th – 23:59 GMT


That should give you a day to rest before the October Challenge starts and some time for me to learn color coordination.

So start your Game Engines and get ready to make some great stuff!

  16. sclark39 says:

    I’m giving this a shot. We’ll see what happens. I’ve got a board game I designed in school I’ve been meaning to prototype in a semi-real-time way which would fit the bill. :)

    So you can spend 48 hours WITHIN September 19-29?

  21. tjxx says:

    I think 48 hours is only recommended, but any more than that you’ll just have to let everyone know. I think. :)

  22. Yep it is a recommendation but feel free to use as much time as you want.

  23. juaxix says:

    Ok, I’ll submit a multiplayer low poly race game, let’s call it Poly Race Cup =)

    Yep, I think that I am definitely doing it! Let’s go baby!

  25. Integershift says:

    When does MiniLD 54 start?

  26. Johnman says:

    I have a whole week to find 48 hours were I can squeeze a game out… LET’S DO THIS! The perfect time to try out my Dart setup, what could go wrong?

  27. ShadowBrain says:

    Working on something for this too! Check my twitter for some progress shots! 😀

  28. I’ve just released my first game for iOS and almost finished my 2nd game. This makes me think I could actually do a compo even if it is a mini one! I’m gonna attempt it too, I look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with!

  29. juaxix says:

  32. MintArcade says:
