Ludum Dare Competition

  • Hi there!

    Sorry for posting this at the C2 general section, but I wanted to get more attention. Feel free to move it to the Open Topic, mods!

    So... This weekend's the Ludum Dare #23!

    http://www.ludumdare.com/

    For those of you who doesn't know, it is a global competition where you receive a theme, and work on it for 48 hours.

    It's my first time participating (woo hoo first free weekend in a long time!) and I'm very excited about it. Anyone else going for it? I was thinking about staying connected so we can help each others out on those tricky parts. So I'll be at Scirra's chat room all weekend, and maybe we can exchange information and show our work-in-progress projects.

    You guys in?

  • I will participate too.

    But I don't know if I will use Construct 2 or Construct Classic. It depends of the theme they will choose.

  • I am!

  • Hey, I've participated Ludum Dare once with 3 construct-made games.

    That was really fun!

    Check them: http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/minild-32/?action=preview&uid=10578

  • Takes me about a week to come up with a good idea, so probably won't unless inspiration strikes when they announce the theme!

  • I'm registered, but I'm still not sure if I'm insane enough to do it given my family commitments this weekend. I want to, so that counts for a lot...

  • Could be fun. Might join in, if schedule and theme are right

  • I'm in, but not for the long haul. I work weekend nights, but can spend a few hours during sat/sunday mornings to make my game. Here's to seeing what I can do with a super-limited amount of time!

  • I'm in for the Jam with 4 other friends. I've participated on LD 22, 20 and 19 solo. You can see all my stuff here: http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/tag/7soul/

  • cool depending on theme Im prolly gonna give this one a shot

  • I am in. This is going to be my 2nd time attending to LD :)

  • Could be fun. Might join in, if schedule and theme are right

    lucid: Would be the perfect opportunity to have an update on the kickstarter by monday to show how a game made with Spriter could look like <img src="smileys/smiley4.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

    If the theme inspires me, I might participate too.

    I'll be in #construct channel anyway. It would be nice indeed if participants would connect and have chat/support in there.

    Oh that would be full of awesome! I would love to see Spriter in action!

  • Nice, I managed to set up a timelapse and livestream also.

    Let's hope I don't end up making a sh*tty game!

  • Try Construct 3

    Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.

    Try Now Construct 3 users don't see these ads
  • I'm posting my project template for Construct 2.

    I was gonna do everything from scratch, but them I read the rules again, and decided to post it.

    Good stuff about it:

    • it uses comic sans in the images so you'll be tempted to change the images
    • sound effects are also crappy
    • it auto resizes the screen if you are willing to port it to mobile devices later
    • sound is already enabled (and there's a function for fade out)
    • cookies are already saving sound On/Off options

    Bad stuff:

    • You'll need the Function plugin

    -...and the spritefont plugin

    You can find the template at:

    There! Ready for LD23!
