Hello! It’s nearly October, so it’s time to kick-off our 6th October Challenge!
The October Challenge is a special event here at Ludum Dare. How is it different? Well, if Ludum Dare encourages you to make a game, the October Challenge encourages you to sell a game. Or put another way:
That is your goal. That is the October Challenge.
Disregard all the usual Ludum Dare rules (no restrictions). Finish any game you previously made during a game jam, something else you’ve been working on, or heck, something entirely new. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to finish and do everything necessary to start earning money from a game. No specific rules or platforms. Make good on that goal or promise to start selling games.
Finish your game, fill out all the necessary paperwork, prep all the assets, and publish it to your respected market or store by November 1st. That’s your goal.
Once you’ve published it, let us know about it by submitting it:
Finally, if you can successfully earn $1 in the weeks that follow, then you’ve won the challenge!
And even if you don’t, you’ve probably learned something, something worth way more than $1.
That’s the October Challenge. Good luck!
