    • All game content must be created within the 48 hours, with a few exceptions (see full rules)

    • Source Code must be included when submitting
    • 72 hours long
    • Work alone or in teams

    - Great tips, especially if this is your first Ludum Dare.


    - A nice collection of popular tools used by many Ludum Dare participants.

    Ludum Deals

    Rules and Guide Re-written for Maximum Clarity

    - The official rules can be ambiguous at times. This post does a great job clarifying things.

    On a personal note, I've found these competitions to be a great experience. Testing my game creation abilities, under tight conditions, with a strict deadline, is a wild ride. Making it to the end, and submitting a game provides a great sense of accomplishment. Also, the LD community is one of the friendliest I've seen. I hope to see many of you participate.

  • I'm in for the next Ludum Dare. Actually, I can't wait. I'm surprised I'm on that list. That's so cool!

  • Try Construct 3

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