Ludum Dare 36 (August 26, 2016)

The time has come…to make games for the 36th tri-annual online game jam, Ludum Dare!

No experience in making games necessary! This is just a fun challenge for all of us, and often serves as an educational moment to learn how to work with deadlines. We will be going through game idea brainstorming and team building exercises to help you jump start your way to making games!

Join in as you make a game in 72 hours with a team, or if you want to go hard-mode, 48 hours solo! Meet up with other rapid game developers! Eat a lot of junk food! And most important of all, have fun!

Just sign up on Facebook events or the Meetup page to join in.

P.S. For parking, the Uncle Sams parking garage — which is only one block away from our office — is free during weekends and after 6:00 PM on the weekdays. We highly recommend parking there.

Note #1: in addition to this game jam, a VR/AR/Gaming Hackathon will be taking place at our office at the same time. Feel free to join that event as well. Do note, however, that our location will be more busy than usual. We will be open between 10:00 AM and midnight each day, and will provide least one computer screen and one computer.

Note #2: Also, for those making VR applications regardless of whether they plan on joining the Hackathon or not, we highly recommend checking out the VR Jam going on Itch.io below. There are a ton of prizes you can win on this jam, and it goes on for more than a week!
