I don't think this Open Topic subforum is the best place for it to get noticed, but not sure if we can post it in the General one?
Moved most of the former threads about LD in the "Game Development, Design & Ideas" forum (where one of the sticky topic is about existing game jams).
Feel free to post here for the next game jams/Ludum Dare, feels an OK forum to talk about it.
I used to be big on LD as well, but in the end, this specific game jam is nothing but a popularity contest.
Nevertheless, I still believe game jams help to train game making skills and are a good idea.
I just really got disheartened by the Ludum Dare itself.
