Ludum Dare 30 is next weekend.

For those who don't know, Ludum Dare is a huge competition where you have 48 hours to make a game solo. There is also a jam run along side that has more relaxed rules, goes 72 hours, and you can work in groups etc.

For more info, read the rules linked to below.

Theme voting starts next week.

Good Luck.

My father's big birthday party is on that weekend. This is what I was talking about when I said LD timings are never good for me. Meh.
I'll still try to participate (even though more than half of my saturday will be "lost"), I'll just make sure to set my goals to be realistic and actually finish something this time around. Wink

Nice. I'm probably in.

I've been completely rewriting my little hosting/tutorial website, with the plan of unveiling the overhaul a week from today. I thought Ludum Dare was 2 weeks away. Not sure if that's good timing or bad timing!

I'm hoping to do a little platformer with libGDX and Box2D. Hopefully that's the start to some kind of reusable framework that I can build on in subsequent game jams.

Might Enter. Cheesy

Highly depends on what I'll be doing when the time comes, but I'll try to get in.
No clue how it will go, haven't done much game development recently.

I'll most likely be using MERCury to make my game, if I actually manage to get enough time to do the competition.

Will prepare drinks in the meantime.

The first LD warmup that I've ever completed. Get it while it's hot (Parallel Worlds flavor!)

https://www.dropbox.com/s/d32za02udt3oa0t/LD%2030%20Warmup%20Parallel%20Worlds.zip



Before any questions are asked: Yes, you are a carrot... Potato related items are for the actual LD.  Wink

Now, a quick storyline!
 - You are a carrot whose soul has been divided across universes.
 - You must unite with your other half so that you may fulfill your destiny!

Game Includes:
- Graphics!
- Bugs (6 Hours of work)!
- 4 Feature Filled Levels!

I would be making a warmup game if I weren't in the middle of rewriting MERCury's GUI system, which I plan on using this LD.

Unfortunately, due to school and other things, I'm going to miss out on anything from 5-10 hours. :/

Of course that's not going to stop me.

People entering (especially first timers) should join the JGO IRC channel. It'll make the experience more fun.
