For Ludum Dare 32, we hosted our second Ludum Dare Real-World Meeting here at the Tech Valley Game Space (TVGS) in Troy, NY, USA. Compared to our previous hosted event (LD 31) we had a greater number of attendees, including a healthy mix of newcomers and veteran jammers. How did it turn out? Get ready for the super-detailed TVGS post-mortem!

Why a real-world meeting?

So this one is an important question: why would we have a real-world meeting for a game jam that prides itself in being online? The short answer is that a real-world gathering provides a number of distinct advantages, both for jammers and Compo participants, that wouldn’t be possible if one were to work from their own home. To explain these advantages, however, let’s start by discussing some spiritual differences between Ludum Dare and Global Game Jam.

I have a space we can use in a conference building, easy to access, good internet access and all that.

Please comment on, so i can reserve the room, if there’s interest.

Room should be large enough for 20 people, without problems.

Do you live in the greater Boston area? Are you a game developer? Do you love two day game jams based on a randomly selected theme? Of course you do! So come on down to the Boston Game Jam: Purple Monkey Dishwasher on November 9th and 10th in Boston’s gorgeous Fort Point at the offices of Cantina. We’ll be doing a two day gathering for people to make a game and meet other creative game makers in the area. Free food and beverages will be supplied, and lots of other perks too, like chairs, and ambient lighting and esoteric art pieces on the walls. You can’t beat that kind of value in a free event!

Register for the event at the EventBrite page here: Register

We’re taking theme submissions from registrants via our Wufoo form here: Theme Submission

Any questions can be directed to boston-game-jam@cantina.co (not .com). Hope to see you there!

Our little association Baptême du jeu (originally a Facebook group) has teamed up with Kawenga to organise our second Ludum Dare real-world gathering ^^ Here’s a teaser poster (awesome pixel pirate by PixelBlock):

We’re charging 7€ for food (a jammer jams on his stomach), and if you’re not already a member of Kawenga you’ll need to sign up for a year’s membership for another 8€. You can sign-up here. We only have about 50 places, so don’t dilly-dally 😉
