I’m really excited for this upcoming jam. In the last one I was over the moon about my game getting 29th for innovation, I even made a port to Android phones that you can download and play for free: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.davetech.LudumDare33


I hope to repeat my success using GameMaker because I find this tool allows me to rapidly try out and explore ideas. As for graphics I’m kinda hoping the topic allows me to do something with computer generated abstract shapes rather than high resolution sprites.

I’m in – from a first time attendee

First time entering and everyone else seems to be posting that they are in so I thought I better as well.

I’m a programmer by profession so I plan to do something technically interesting to try and hide my lack of artistic skill.

I don’t know if anyone has any advice for new people as I dont quite know what to expect?


I will be using GameMaker as I find it really quick to develop games and I think that will be key. I haven’t tried many other engines for building game but I use GameMaker through Steam and that tells me I have over 500 hours racked up on GameMaker and while I’m sure plenty of people have a massive amount more than that I’m quite confident I can finish something in the time frame.

How many hours do other people have using their tools of choice?
