Ludum Dare is a worldwide game jam where games are made from scratch in a weekend. Ludum Dare 47 will be running from the 2nd to the 5th of October, and we're excited to make the full version of Construct 3 completely free to use for the full duration of the jam!

All features will be available, including Remote Preview, the mobile app build service, JavaScript coding, Timeline animation features, and more. It's the ideal time to try out Construct 3 - if you're taking part in Ludum Dare, give it a go!

How to use it

All you need to do to use the full version of Construct 3 for free during the jam is:

  1. Make sure you've registered a free account
  2. Visit to load Construct 3
  3. Log in with your account (choose Menu - Account - Log in) - you'll then have access to the full version!

Ludum Dare’s site has full details about when the jam starts and ends, specific to your timezone and we’re making sure Construct 3 will be free for the duration of the jam! Until the jam kicks off you can still use the free edition to familiarise yourself with Construct - perhaps start with the Beginner's guide to Construct 3 if you're new.

Good luck!

For more information see the Ludum Dare website, including the rules. Please do mention Construct as the engine or framework if you make a submission!

We’d love to know if you’re joining the Jam, so share your creations with us! Use the tags #MadeInConstruct, #Construct3 or #Construct2, or tag us directly on Twitter or Facebook using @ConstructTeam and we’ll share as much as we can! There's also the official Ludum Dare hashtag #LDJAM and they're @LudumDare on Twitter.

Have fun!
