JOBURG VENUE CONFIRMED at Microsoft Bryanston!!!! :D See below for details!


LUDUM DARE 42 is just around the corner! This time they'll be starting 3 hours ahead of their usual time, so midnight for us from the Friday. Which is pretty cool.

    I wasn't sure if I was too keen on doing this LD but Im getting amped! I even submitted some theme suggestions for the first time! :D

    Went with:
    - Smoke and Mirrors
    - Complete the loop
    - Together we are stronger

    What do you think? Has anyone else submitted some themes?

  • I usually don't care about the theme until seeing it on the day, I like getting my brain whacked with something completely unknown, that usually makes for the most interesting ideas, for me :)

    I've submitted some themes!

    - Entropy
    - Heat Death Of The Universe
    - Is this the real world?

    Though I'm not going to pay a ton of attention to the theme, even if they choose one I suggested. I'll adjust for the theme, but this jam in particular I'm keen to try make something that'd be worth finishing.

    Personally, I've done a lot of jamming this year already, and made a lot of games that interested me (and quite often that was what motivated me to make it, that I thought the idea was interesting). Now I want to make a game that I'm actually good at making and also want to play (those are the main constraints I'm putting on myself this Ludum Dare).
  • I'm there!! :3
  • I'll see everyone at Microsoft tomorrow evening starting from 6 <3

    Be prepared, bring these:
    1. Snacks
    2. Sleeping stuff (if you're sleeping there)
    3. Update your tools (Unity, GMS, etc)
    4. Puppy (if you have one to spare)
