Join us on Twitter and IRC (#ludumdare on Afternet.org) for the Theme Announcement!
Thanks everyone for coming out! For the next 3 weeks, we’ll be Playing and Rating the games you created. You NEED ratings to get a score at the end. Play and Rate games to help others find your game. We’ll be announcing Ludum Dare 36’s August date alongside the results.
New Server: Welcome to the New (less expensive) Server! Find any problems? Report them here.
Thank you to everyone who submitted their games! I’m sorry I could only scratch the surface of the submissions I received. I’ll hold onto the spreadsheet and use that as the basis for my next LD review…
Well done/Commiserations to everyone who made the video. I’m so so sorry. x
And finally, once again, thank you to everyone here. The community is awesome and seeing what you guys came up with in only 48/72 hours is crazy inspiring. I’ll buy you all a beer when I meet you someday. x x x
Thank you for the awesome response to my last post. There were just over 200 of you wanting to be in the video. I would LOVE to have recorded you all… but Christmas meant I had even less time than usual to work on it. Next time I’ll try and do better… and try and figure out a nice fair way of picking who I do.
But until then… grab some popcorn… then toss it away and open a beer instead – and enjoy:
Thank you again to everyone featured, and thank you to everyone who shows a bit of interest in it. I’ve said it before, but I will happily say it again and scream it from the rooftops: Independent games development is incredible. The community is incredible. And YOU are incredible. Much love. x
Hey! Well done you! You completed Ludum Dare! I’m really proud of you. I mean, I knew you had it in you from the start; you can tell by the twinkle in your eye that you were going to create something pretty special. So now you just want some people to play it, right?
I’ll play it. That’s if you don’t mind me getting heavily involved with alcohol first and then rambling incoherently, swearing and bitching about your game alongside everyone elses?
Last time this happened, I managed to cram in 65 games – here are the fruits of that eventful drinking session:
This time around, I want to see if I can cram in even more…
So, if you’d like me to look at your game, please post below. I’ll throw in some of my own picks to the mix, and I cannot guarantee to get through everyone’s who posts – but I will certainly try my best if you post in the next 24 hours. I’ll be doing it on a “first come – first served” basis.. so go go go!
Also, if you really DON’T want me to play your game (some people don’t) you’d better post that too.
I love you all. You did do wonderfully – even those of you who had to bow out before the time was up, at least you tried. Well done and good luck. x
EDIT: 24 hours are up… wow, you guys! I need to drink a heck of a lot to get through all of these, but I’ll do my best! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Hello again! Gosh you do smell nice this weekend. Is that new cologne/perfume/soap/deleteasapplicable?
Just the other day, in the post-LD glow, I asked for some of you to poke your games in my direction so I could play them while rocking slowly back and forth in this white cell… and you did! I love you!
I added a few of my own picks to the mix, and glued it all together… and here it is:
I truly wish I could play/record all of your games, but I can’t due to time constraints, so please leave a note if:
You want your game to be played
You want to recommend someone else’s game for me to play
You really DO NOT want me to play yours. I’ll take you off the list.
I’m quite kind, but I can understand that you won’t want this British chap with a weird accent pointing out bugs in your 48 hour game or swearing at it because he doesn’t understand it through his drunken haze.
This is pretty much first-come-first-served, though I already have a small list I’ve put together myself. I will get upset if people WANT to be reviewed and I have to say no… so I’ll close this when I need to, to stop me bursting into tears.
TL;DR : This dude wants to play your game and put 10-15 seconds of it on youtube while shouting over it.
EDIT: I HAVE A 50+ LIST NOW. YOU’RE TOO LATE FOR A GUARANTEED SLOT IN THE VIDEO. WORTH GIVING IT A GO THOUGH… I MIGHT ADD YOU IF SOMEONE ELSE’S GAME DOESN’T WORK OUT. ANNOYING ME ON TWITTER IS MORE LIKELY TO GET MY ATTENTION IF YOU’RE DESPERATE!
p.s. I love you all. Thank you for the great response. x x x
