What is Ludum Dare?

Is this just like a monthly game jam? It seems really cool but so far the site is a little hard to navigate. Some tips from people who’ve been here for a while would be super appreciated. 😀


(I can’t find a reply button in the comment section so thank you to the two of you that explained the site! :) )

    LD is a game jam that happens three times a year, in April, August (I think?) and December. There are two simultaneous events: the jam (72h, teams) and the compo (48h, solo). As soon as you finish your game, you upload it to the site on the corresponding category. After the timer is out, everybody votes on games and gets ‘coolness’ from it. The more ‘coolness’ you have, the more visibility your game will have. Voting is only allowed to those who have uploaded a game.

    Hope I helped! Also, go on IRC (irc://irc.afternet.org#ludumdare) if you have any questions
