    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.

    It’s nearly time to kick off our latest and greatest event yet: Ludum Dare 22. Final Round theme voting now live, so go cast your vote for the theme. Prior results are here.


    Like last time, join us LIVE in the #ludumdare IRC channel on irc.afternet.org for the Theme Announcement! Can’t make it? Follow us on Twitter, or sign up for the mailing list.

    This time around there are several real world jams and gatherings going on over the weekend, far more than we’ve ever had. For a complete list, go here.

    Also, since live video streams seem popular lately, we’ve set up a link on the front page for them. Find a complete list over here.

    We’re running on a brand new server, introduced (unfortunately) half way through the last event. We (Phil specifically) went through and did a lot of optimizations to our site code. Removing excessive SQL queries, disabling unnecessary plugins, and making numerous other tweaks. We’re hoping this time we have it right. We’ll be keeping a close eye to make sure everything still works. If we’re lucky, Phil and I will have a chance to make entries ourselves! :)

    On with the festivities!
