Hello, and welcome to Ludum Dare 32! This is our first event of 2015, and our 13th year Ludum and Daring.
Without further ado, lets do what you came here to do:
Click the image above to Vote for Ludum Dare 32’s Theme! The highest rated theme will be revealed on Friday April 17th at 9:00 PM EDT (6:00 PM PDT, or Saturday 01:00 UTC). Don’t know when that is? Click this handy link here for your local timezone, or observe the countdown clock above.
Results from Rounds 1-4 are here.
(Over) 50 Real World Gatherings!!
There are A LOT of them this time. If you haven’t checked out the list, click here.
Live Streaming? You now have many choices!
By request, we’ve now added support for streaming newcomer Beam. That means you have 4 choices for places to share your development. Pick your favourite, and start broadcasting! Set your game to “Ludum Dare“.
Also! Mac and Linux users! OBS is now cross platform! Add cool borders layouts to your Live Streams!
PSA: Unity Player is no longer compatible with Chrome
As of Chrome 42 (released April 14th), Unity Player, Java, and Silverlight games will no longer work in Chrome (i.e. NPAPI plugins). There is a clumsy user workaround, but you might seriously want to take a look at the HTML5 export found in Unity 5 instead.
Also FYI: Unity Player has never worked on Linux. Just saying. 😉
PSA: You can embed your Ludum Dare web games on your game page
I actually added this last Ludum Dare, but didn’t mention it: You can now embed your web games on your game page. Embeds are currently limited to any size equal-to or below 900×600 pixels. The limit is due to the current website layout. If you need more than that, you should offer to full-screen your game.
Deals, Assets, Wallpapers and more! Click the buttons below the countdown clock for more.
Keynote! Hosted by Sol_HSA
Extra! A “History” of Ludum Dare
Our friends at the Button Masher Bros made this OUTRAGEOUS Ludum Dare themed comedy video… err… I mean Historically Accurate Documentary on Ludum Dare *cough*. Contains profanity.
That’s all for now. Go vote!!
