  • Make a game that’s a fusion of two other games, game genres or game ideas
  • Do it during the 20th – 30th of November
  • Spend 48 hours or 72 hours or however long you want
  • Start whenever’s convenient
  • Work alone or in a team
  • Use any assets/tools you want
  • Tag your games with #MiniLD63 (and also #LDJAM)
  • Disregard any/all of the rules if you want

In case you can’t think of anything, here’s some of ideas for things you could fuse:

  • Platformer
  • Snake
  • Dating Sim
  • Text-based adventure
  • Gritty male protagonist
  • Educational ‘game’
  • Superman 64
  • Live action
  • Box pushing
  • Mike ‘PoV’ Kasprzak

That’s it! If you have any other ideas, feel free to leave them in a comment below.

    And I’m In (Sorta!) (And “Sorta!” as in I’ll just say my current project fits the theme!)

  5. pixzleone says:

    Also funny video thing 😀

  6. Christina Nordlander says:

    One of the best themes I’ve seen so far! I’ll hopefully have time to participate.

  7. Christina Nordlander says:

    Forgot to mention, the banner is beautiful.

  8. ManlyStump says:

    I really hope I can do something with this, as the timing is perfect – I’ve booked that week off work, and currently don’t have any plans! Will have to try and get my game dev skills up to scratch before then though!

  9. hyper says:

    I’m in !!
    This will be my first (mini) LD :p

  10. Aehaibi says:

    I’m (possibly) in.

  12. nihilaleph says:

    I’m in!…. (I think… it depends how smoothly my project goes!)

  13. Does anyone wanna work with me. I can use Unity3D and GameMaker. Id love to jam with someone else 😀

  14. krashja says:

    I am in! First LD game ever! Let´s see what happens here!

  15. MSiddeek says:

    I wish the themes for the normal LudumDares would have been that good.

  16. Phuturelic says:

    I’m in! First time taking part in LD!

  17. krashja says:

    Just clarifying, can we use music without use rights?

    For example : Using starcraft/any game sound effects?

  18. MyLegGuy says:

    This is my first time here, I have a quick question.

    At the end of the rules, it says you can disregard any/all of the rules.
    Does that mean you can make a game that’s not a fusion of two other games, game genres or game ideas?

  19. Evergreen Games says:

    Someone please make a mashup of POV and gritty male protagonist!!!!!

  20. Kevin XD says:

    Im Innn!!! Yeeeeeehhh… My first LD

  21. pta2002 says:

    I’m in! First Ludum Dare I am participating in!

  23. khofez says:

    I’m in! my first mini LD

  24. Pietro Ferrantelli says:

    We’re probably in ! Can we just create a game that use “fusion” as a mechanic ?

  25. IAmSpencer says:

    Ooooh, this seems super fun!

    Funnily enough, I had a similar idea of ‘fusing’ 2 different game-play mechanics during the recent 0-hour game jam, but never managed to finish it (due to the unsurprisingly tough time constraints), maybe I’ll try it once again when this rolls around…

    I’ll without a doubt be joining! :)

  26. General says:

    Hi! Just want to show you the fusion of card game War and a board game Risk I’ve made long ago:

    But it took me not 2 days, but 2 years to complete it 😀

    Well, not really so, there were big pauses during my development and, as I’ve checked the sources history now I see, that the initial game version (made with Lazarus, Object Pascal) was made within 72 hours. Later there were big pauses for studying Action Script 3, making other projects, working, etc.

    Still want to make a sequel – perhaps, one day I will.

  27. Firefox says:

    I’m in! Already coming up with game ideas in the back of mind before the competition. I can’t help it! 😀

  28. qwetro says:

    I’m in! Really excited about this now!

  29. AtomicVikings is in too. :-)
    We are trying to make a game in 3D and Unity. Let’s see how far we are after this awesome week.

  30. Belug says:

    I’m in too! This is my first time and it.s gonna be a good training for the LD34.

  31. Bownly says:

    So if we can disregard any of the rules, does that mean that we can start early? :p

  32. randoman says:

    I’m in! Can’t wait to begin!

  33. Hoov99 says:

    I’m in! Can’t wait, this is my first ever LD or MiniLD.

  34. Codiferus says:

    I’m going to be doing this one. (Probably.)
    As it’s my first (Mini)LD I have a question:
    Is there any official submission?

  35. KyleSchieck says:

    I signed up to participate in this. It should be fun.

  36. priabudiman says:

    If theres a programmer that want to work together on this one, please let me know! Ill free my schedule from 20 to 30 to do some pixel arts for the jam. Also have some ideas or two for the project.

    Send me a PM or mention at my twitter @apriabudiman . Looking forward to enter this!

  37. Hidden Theory says:

    If anybody needs a composer my schedule is pretty open for this event. If you’re interested feel free to send me a pm.

  38. ztiromoritz says:

    I’m in. Wohaa :)

  39. mao says:

    I think I’ll do mine in the world’s best programming environment: SCRATCH!

    (I won’t start the timer just yet, I have to drink some tea)

  40. Joli says:

    This is the first time I join Ludum Dare and also the first time make game. I decided to use java 3D but I do not know how to load it successfully on this website. How can I get the hint? Do I zip it?

  41. Mistah Figgins says:

    (I think) I’m in! First ever LD!
    I don’t plan on adhering to the time limit, at least not this time.

    I’m thinking about doing a snake + platformer game

    Let’s do this thing!

  42. Hairein says:

    Hi all,
    i’m taking part in the jam and the beginnings are there.

    The game is working titled ‘Orcland Rivals’ and consists of two armies on a board shifting their troops around in turns and collecting upgrades along the way, only fighting where cells are contested by the enemy. When two armies meet, it gets really tactical and you have a mob rushing around real-time dungeon maps causing absolute chaos!

    As the title indicates, the game will be in a fantasy setting with two orc armies fighting for land and spoils. Gameplay-wise, it mixes turn-based strategy top-level with flocking RTS elements in the dungeon battle maps.

    You can follow my progress at my website and streaming most evenings UTC+1 at Twitch.

    Good luck and have fun to everyone participating!

  43. Geosearchef says:

    I’m in! First time participating and looking forward to #LD34.

  44. Monodream says:

    I’m in!
    This is also my first LD!
    I hope my game will be OK…
    Good luck for all peoples!

  45. prankard says:

    I’m in and my first day is over… It’s getting there…

    My favorite rule is this one:
    “Disregard any/all of the rules if you want”

  46. Torpington says:

    I’m in! First time too.

  47. Picking a username is hard says:

    I think i could whip something up two days before the game is due.
