We are back… with a revenge !

Real World Gathering in Tours for LD#38

Real World Gathering in Tours for LD#38

Last August we organized our first Real World Garthering.

We were 15, built 5 teams, released 6 games. Some people travelled a few hundred kilometers to joins us, and it was incredibly warm (I have had 6 BSOD due to over heating…), but it has been a great experience ! So, we have decided to do it again.

But as we enjoyed it so much, we really want to open the event to even more people, and have more fun !

Ludum Dare for kids

On saturday afternoon, we will organise a Coding Gouter (Coding Snack) : graphists and developpers work with kids to make simple game in 4 hours. And if the parents agree, these games will be posted on Ludum’s site (with a proper explanation, that they have been made by kids), so the kids will be proud of their products ! Of course, I’ll encourage you to play and review these games with kindness.

Game creation for non-developpers

Last edition, we hopped that gaming tools (such as scratch, puzzle script or inkle writer) would allow non-developpers to easilly take part to the competition. But it has been more difficult than expected. So this year, to allow more people to join the party, we are opening a Board Game section. But, you know, the sky is the limit ! So we teamed with our local Fablab to push print & play even further, and allow participants to create wacky figurines or odd gaming contraptions that anyone will be able to reproduce at home !

We can’t wait so see what will come out that event…

Come and join the party !

So if you are in France between the 21th and 23rd or April, make sure to join us !
