    Ok, I am hoping to partake in dare 33. I am looking to be organized and prepared for the overall event. What prepping tips can you guys offer? If I cannot find a team, are there any books or websites I should rent/bookmark? Is google+ a good communication/info sharing source for a team that cannot meetup in person?

    I currently have Game Maker Studio and some programming books I have collected. I like java and python but the Game Maker language is growing on me. I look forward to the competition. If not 33, I am going to participate as well as donate. This is exactly what I hoped to find when I began sorting through search engines for new hobbies

    Currently waging battles on Cardhunter and falling through some TowerFall

    I’m not personally hosting the event (sorry PoV!), but since the event organizers haven’t posted anything about it, we (er not me) are hosting a local meetup in Corvallis, Oregon! Event details can be found at

    I will be there :) First real world meetup I’ve been to since I was hosting them in the bay area, and probably will be the first time I finish since then, too.

  37. I will be hosting a pre-LD drinks session in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Folks can come along and meet people, form teams and arrange venues for their teams to meet. We will not be providing a venue in this case, but there is also already one available in Frankfurt if needed.

    Many of the local independent devs will be there as well, so if your new to indie games come and meet us!
