Hello everyone! It’s time to kick off the final countdown to Ludum Dare 31 (Europe pun).

Final Round Theme Voting has begun. The highest rated themes from Rounds 1-4 will now fight in an intense 2 day voting battle, and the winner will be our Ludum Dare 31 Theme.


I hope you like the site changes. Some layout tweaks here and there, improvements, and A LOT of optimization. We’re still bound by a lot of old WordPress code, code I’m hoping replace next year (well, if I can afford to anyway). Making a new website is going to take time though, and we need something to hold us over (i.e. this). You can read a bit about my plans here, as well as what I’ve been up to the past couple months.

I’ll have more to talk about in a few weeks, but for now let’s have a Ludum Dare!

Fun Stuff

I’m really excited to share this. A friend of the band reached out to me, and this is the result.


If you’re jamming, be sure to check out the assets page. A lot of great stuff in the comments.

We’ve got a HUGE library of Wallpapers for you this time, including several wallpapers of graffiti by Robert del Naja himself. Check them out!

Plenty of Ludum Deals to check out. For those waiting for them, we now have Unity Pro trial codes for grabs. About a thousand or so. Good until January 4th. Let me know if we run out.


*NEW* We’ve also got a whole bunch of Unreal Engine 4 codes, good for 90 days of Unreal Engine access! More details on the Ludum Deals page.


Time to continue with the festivities. Let’s get you hyped up with some videos!

Ludum Dare Keynote, hosted by Yotam (Patacorow)

We’ve got a great keynote lined up for you, an Animated Keynote at that! Check it out:

Big thanks to Yotam for pulling this together.

Music Video!

Okay, I just had to share this too. Joe Williamson (JoeCreates) put together this wonderfully catchy Ludum Dare song, backed by footage from Ludum Dare games.

Just watch it, you’ll understand:

That’s it for now. Ladies and Gentlemen, here comes The Dare!

Well it looks like September is nearly gone, so it’s time to kick off for October Challenge 2013!

The October Challenge is a special Ludum Dare event I started three years ago. More and more people are making games today thanks to Game Jams and events like Ludum Dare. And more and more people talk about selling games, but don’t do it. Well, it’s time to start doing it. Put simply:

Finish a game — Take it to market — Earn $1

That is your goal. That is the October Challenge.
