Here’s a thread for the Live Streamers, YouTubers, and any non-participant looking for games to play.

For everyone else, voting will open soon, so stay tuned for that. :)


Post a link to your Channel, Show, or Publication in the comments below, along with a link to where people can suggest games to you (off-site or in a separate thread please).

If you have a schedule planned, please share it, so people can know when to tune in.

PLEASE DON’T SPAM THEM! Self promotion is encouraged, but these folks are going to get a lot of submissions. Be respectable.


ProTip: Streaming Ludum Dare is not only for MAKING Ludum Dare games, but also for PLAYING Ludum Dare games! Give it a try! Many people would LOVE to watch their game get played.

NOTE: If your comment is awaiting moderation, feel free to poke Mike on Twitter.

NOTE: This thread is NOT for development streams.

    Hey! I’m a participant, but I also do run a YouTube channel at http://youtube.com/guard13007 so I would love to play games people tell me to!

    If you’d like me to play your game, send an email to GuardAlmostGames@gmail.com with a link to the submission on here and the subject line “Ludum Dare 34”

    Thank you! (and maybe check out my game while you’re at it?)

  6. Howdy Folks. I’ll be back for another round recording games for Larry Does Ludum on Youtube. Playing different games (1-3 per video) and talking about how they tackled the Jam Theme, Showcasing their gameplay, and thinking about the different possible things the creators could do with it in the future.

    You can submit your games via this handy dandy form I made (Since it seems all the young people have em these days)

  7. thegypsyknight says:

    I will be streaming LD34 games, rating them and giving feedback to them, with the community.
    Developers are more than welcome to join the chat and link to your games. You are also welcome to play my entry and give me feedback :)

    I stream in the evenings, europe time (+1) and will be playing LD games the next few streams.

    I normally stream my own game development, as I did this weekend but now it’s LD PLAY TIME!
    I tweet when I go live at https://twitter.com/TheGypsyKnight

  8. killswitch423 says:

    Hi there! Let me just start off by introducing myself.

    I am killswitch423, and I have a measly little channel on YouTube where I like to play games. Yes, my channel is small… microscopic, even, but I would still love to play as many LD games as I can – not only to support LD in my own small way, but to have a great deal of fun and maybe even meet a few new viewers.

    If you would like to give my small channel a shot, or have me feature your game, you can find me at http://www.youtube.com/killswitch423 or send an email to revelle.david@gmail.com.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this ^.^;

  9. Ildfuglen says:

    Hello! I will be streaming LD34 gameplay starting in 1 hour! You can find me at http://www.twitch.tv/ildfuglen

    Send me your entries on Twitch as private messages, or simply drop by chat!

    Thanks. !

  10. roninfight says:

    Damn, I almost wish you could rate games without having participated. I guess it’s done like that for a reason, but there are some real gems in this batch.

    • Ildfuglen says:

      You can’t? Well that’s dumb. But hey if you have some real gems then please give them to me, I’ll check them out 😀 I’m streaming right now at http:/www.twitch.tv/ildfuglen going to play and rate some games :)

    • Jupiter_Hadley says:

      Yeah, you cannot rate unless you made a game. They had a sort of vote to see if streamers could vote on games, but the community said no.

      • roninfight says:

        Fair enough. At least we can still play them and leave a comment :)

        • pkenney says:

          If Jupi wants a vote I’d give Jupi a vote. She works so damn hard for us. That said, I can understand the hardliners.

          But I want to say that as a dev, seeing a video on youtube is a huge deal, whether it be for 60 seconds or 60 minutes. Not only is it exciting and entertaining, but it also often teaches you a lesson you didn’t see coming. People’s written feedback is awesome, but as a dev nothing compares to watching a video of somebody first-sight playing my game and speaking their inner thoughts out loud as they struggle with any confusion. It’s also great to watch the small moments they enjoy.

          So I don’t blame you for wanting to be able to vote, but you’re still making a big impact even if you don’t. I’d trade one less vote for one more video pretty quickly, at least up to a point.

  11. pwings says:

    Hey ho, I’m Paddlewings, and I wanna LP your games! 😀

    I made a Pep Talk for LDJam Newbies video a few days back, and now I wanna put my money where my mouth is and play some games!

    My channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/paddlewings
    My twitter: @averywhat

    I’mma play 20 minutes’ worth of games per video, and provide ‘feedback from the average joe’ for each entry. I don’t have much to offer but my enthusiasm, though that’s gotta be worth something, right?

    You can drop me a line by either medium and I’ll get right on your LP. 😀


  12. WastelandDan says:

    I am already working on the first six right now! Figured I’d come in here to let others know.

    Name is Wasteland Dan, and my favorite kind of game to play are indie games, mostly what I have been playing since I started!

    My goal is to get six games, and play each of them for 60 seconds. I don’t know how many games I’ll be able to get through in a day, but I’ll do my best to get through all the ones I am suggested.

    If you’d like to add your game to my list, feel free to do so here: http://goo.gl/forms/ICKAQFr1iV

    And lets not forget my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/TheRagefoxx

    I’m not picky, so let the suggestions fly.

    See you all on the wasteland!

  13. lambomang says:

    Hey there Ludum Darers! It’s your friendly neighborhood lambomang here! I’m starting a Let’s Play Ludum Dare series which will be beginning later this week, and I need YOUR games to play!

    I will be doing a series where’ll I’ll play 5 Ludum Dare games I think are pretty cool every episode. Out of those 5 I will pick my favourite, and then at the end of the series I’ll pick my overall fav out of those. The winner will win the only slightly prestigious ‘We need a better name for this title’ Title ‘You’re a winner Harry!’
    And then once the LD results have been released I’ll do a follow up episode where’ll compare how well my favourites ranked, and maybe play some other high ranked games I didn’t play.

    If you want to see your game played as part of this series, just send me a link in this super dooper handy dandy form what I cooked up last night: http://goo.gl/forms/p8H1DxjneI
    Just make sure to send me the link to your game on Ludum Dare, not where you’re hosting it. That way I can direct people back to your page to vote for your game!

    Anyway, all the fun and action will be happening over at my channel at https://youtube.com/c/lambomang/
    Subscribe to that if you want to be kept up to date on all the Ludum Dare shenanigans!

  14. GameGrape Gaming says:

    We can’t wait to play YOUR awesome games! See you there!

    • Jace239 says:

      I’m sorry, but why are you charging for “guaranteed let’s plays”? I looked at all of your sources. I couldn’t find a single posted review available to see your work, and your YouTube channel has only 4 subscribers. I have over 400 subscribers and I’m willing to do it for free. Almost all of us are!

      I understand that perhaps you’re trying to start this as a business, but you have to build some credibility first. Ludum Dare is a non-profit event for all involved. There is no cash prize, and most people doing this have little money to spare. I can’t imagine anyone paying for this unless they were convinced you were a well-known and proven professional, which I don’t believe you are.

      As someone who cares enough about their game that they’d consider paying for good coverage, I’m a little upset. It is possible I’ve missed or misunderstood something, so correct me if I’m wrong, but I was quite thorough. I hope you’ll reconsider how you handle things, I may be new here but even I can tell this place is not somewhere to put profit first. That’s one of the reasons it succeeds, because it’s powered by love, passion and generosity- instead of business figures.

      • GameGrape Gaming says:

        Hello Jace239, Thank you for your patience. On our YouTube channel you can find all of our videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChvVjeh1wYMYFiKs2U7jhMg/videos. We provide quality coverage of the games that are sent to us. For Ludum Dare 32 we did let’s plays of games for free. We understand how difficult it can be to get coverage for your game. Many developers put their all into their games only to get rejected by game reviewers and press. We want to change that. We are here to make sure that if a game developer would like their game reviewed, they have a way that they can get that done without having to spend precious time that they would like to be developing their game with.

        We put time and effort into our videos and content so that they have value to the community and the developer. We offer improvements, and honest critique of the games that we review. That way the developer can not only see what needs to be improved but also has an idea of what would make their game more enjoyable from another persons point of view. This is valuable feedback and we feel that all game developers should be able to have access to it.

        We are offering guaranteed game reviews because that what we do. When someone sends in a game to be reviewed through GameGrape Gaming, we get it done and then they can go on their way with the peace of mind knowing that we have them covered for their written review, let’s play video and game review needs. We know that not all developers are in a position to use what we offer so we give out free let’s play videos on Ludum Dare events like we did for the Ludum 32, and 33 as well as this one.

        People who use GameGrape Gaming are using it because they want to help their game, it’s not about us but instead about the developer. We have a small following right now, and it will grow just like any other YouTube Account.

        We are all powered by love, passion and generosity. We charge because we want to able to provide quality service for a long time.

        Here’s a link to a Game Review we have done for lxxgarrisonxxl’s Ludum Dare 34 game Tile Breaker Revolution: https://youtu.be/12hurMpT3aU

        We love this community and truly enjoy playing all the amazing games! Hopefully we we’re able to answer your questions :). Have a nice day! 😀

        GameGrape Gaming – Game On!

        • Jace239 says:

          Hello GameGrape Gaming,
          I’m sorry for the misunderstanding. When I go to your YouTube channel directly, it says there’s no content. I see now that there actually is content but that for some reason YouTube isn’t showing it. I’m happy to hear that I was wrong and that you love this community too. I recommend looking into using Audacity to clean up your audio, as that was a big turn-off for me while watching your videos. I think that will help a lot. Good luck with growing your channel. I hope you have a nice day too! :)

  18. Jace239 says:

    This was my first Ludum Dare, but I have been a YouTube Let’s Player for several years. Due to various computer and health problems I was unable to tend to my channel for a long time, but I’m trying to make a comeback now. As part of that, I’d like to play as many games from LD34 as possible.

    I still have a fair amount of subscribers (409 at the time of this posting) and I’d be happy to give your games both publicity and genuine feedback. If you’re interested, please enter your games here: http://goo.gl/forms/Ex8O33DAwh

    You can find my YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/user/JACE239

    Thanks for reading, I look forward to playing your games!

    Greetings all!

    I live stream at 8 p.m. Eastern Time (UTC-5) on YouTube Live Streaming. Please feel free to submit proposed games to frog AT purplefrogplays DOT youknowwhat. Caveat: I’ll only play Linux games. I’ll also record some fun ones for let’s plays or at least let’s tries in the future!

  20. MikeBoyd says:

    Hey everyone and good morning from rainy old England!

    My name is Mike from M.A.D Gaming! I recently took part it my very first game jam (Asylum Jam) last month and I had a ton of fun checking out some of the games and I’ve been following Ludum Dare since last year (but this year is the first I’ve been creating videos for my channel).

    I’ve already recorded and am in the process of uploading one of the Ludum Dare games but I’m always interested to play more! If you’d like me to play one of your games give me a PM and I’ll give you honest feedback to the best of my abilities.

    Right here’s my channel so you can see some of my past work http://www.youtube.com/c/mikeboydgaming.

    I really look forward to hearing from you (and even if I don’t I will still play some of the games….sorry)

  21. James McVitty says:

    Hey there everybody! My name’s James and I competed in LD34, but I also run a YouTube channel over at http://www.youtube.com/Terrachotic, where (after a Star Wars screening or two) I’ll play some Ludum Dare games!
    On my channel I post a somewhat wide range of content related to gaming, but there isn’t anything else that could be further from your GTAs and CoDs than a Game Jam game, and thats a good thing! Diversity in content is a plus, and one that I’m excited to explore.

    There’s obviously too many for me to sort through, so submit them to me through here: http://goo.gl/forms/zG1CGtiy2d


  22. AngiePlays says:

    Hi friends – finished a collaborative submission for #LD34 and am now excited to play other games people have made during the jam!
