    Greetings from Liquid Media Games, I am creating a game for Ludum Dare 33 this time, I will be using
    (Unity 5.1.2) Game Engine, (Blender 2.72) 3d Modeling,(Gimp 2.8) Texture Mapping, and (Garage Band 10.1) Music / Audio.

    Thanks, and good programming to all.

  33. metacozm says:

    *gasp* Der Germans ubernehmen the show. Finally. Which is a good thing, b/c I´m also from DE. Prost! 😉
    Strike back, world, with many small creative well-done jam games!

  34. Avalanche Games says:

    Hype Hype Hype

  35. Scripturus says:

    I for one am happy to see that Science has finally and conclusively spoken out on how to pronounce “Ludum Dare”, and I expect this will put an end further debate over the subject. 😐

  36. This is awesome! Can’t wait to see what the theme is!

  37. When I heard “Well, as it seems we have some time left…” at exactly halfway through the video, I thought it was going to play all over again. XD The tips were great, though!

  38. OutlawGameTools says:

    I’m hoping the theme turns out to be “geometric shapes and no audio” because then I might have a chance. 😉 I’m looking forward to the start; this will be my first Ludum Dare.

  39. BrankoDeLima says:

    I feel like running away naked with anxiety that I am. hahahahaha
    this will be my first Ludum Dare.

  40. PostmortemGames says:

    I really want to join in but I don’t know if I have the time this weekend :( I’ve got family gatherings, catching up with friends and most importantly sleep 😛 I organized all this before I knew Ludum Dare was on this weekend :(

    I’ll at least try to make something, even if I don’t complete it in the 72 hours. This is what I’ll be using:

    Software: Game Maker Studio Pro
    Language: GML
    Sound: Audacity + FL Studio
    Graphics: Gimp or Paint.net (can’t decide, but probably gimp)

    I wish you all the best of luck 😀

  41. milliams says:

    Looking forward to this. Gonna try something with voxels.
