Hello everyone! Ludum Dare is fast approaching… Are you ready for it? ๐Ÿ˜€

First of all: Ludum Dare 37 will be held in the weekend of December 9th on the new site! If you want to participate, you will need to make an account there. If you join now, you’ll still have time to slaughter some themes before theme voting starts next week.

Now, the weekend before a Ludum Dare, we traditionally organize something we like to call the Warmup Weekend. Since the new website is not quite ready yet, we will be doing the warmup weekend here on the old site.

So between this moment and the start of LD37, you’re encouraged to test your tools. Make some art, import it, and draw it on screen. Make some sounds, import them, and play them on cue. If youโ€™re using a new development tool, figure out the development cycle. Learn how to make a release too!

Bullet point summary:

  • No rules or limits. This is practice.
  • Learn your development tools! Write some code, run it.
  • Make some art, get it on screen, make it move.
  • Print some text to the screen. Print some text to a log (if applicable).
  • Make some sound, get it in game, make it play.
  • If you’re motivated enough, make your experiments in to a game!
  • Make something that should take “hours”, not 2 days.
  • Then package it up, put it online.
  • No time or day limit. But if you have no other plans this coming weekend, why not?

If you like what youโ€™ve done, feel free to share it!

    I always find doing LD is pretty much just a hand with ideas, so does anyone want to suggest a theme for me to try on this? I suck at ideas, that’s why I do LD ๐Ÿ˜›
