Hi all :)

This is my second Ludum Dare and my 7th jam, though I still have a lot to learn about making games 😉 Here is my entry from last year.

I’ve organised an real-world gathering this year at the University Montpellier 2 with the help of Gaeel, my fellow Brit’ in Southern France, and a few other people. The faculty has been great, but we only had confirmation and security permissions at the last minute, so we can’t invite any more participants (though visitors can come by Saturday morning). There will be around 14 of us in total, including Guillaume from Swing Swing Submarine and Pierre from Oujevipo. It’s going to be legend… wait for it… dary!

We also plan to stream the event as of Saturday midday using the university’s web-tv.

That said the organisation has eaten up all my spare time this last fortnight and I have a number of projects to hand in next week, so I may have to hijack the dare to work on technology for either:

I’m a bit sad about this :'( Both of which are open-source projects – In this case I’ll develop code tangentially to the base… I’m not sure how kosher this is, probably not at all. I also predict that organisation during the event will eat up a considerable amount of the 48 hour period, so I may not end up with much  – that said I’m super psyched about this event and happy to provide others will a cool working environment :)

Happy New Dare everyone 😀
