Ludum Dare is that other thing I do. Along with Phil, Mike and Seth, we run a community website based around the infamous Ludum Dare competition. Game developers from around the world assemble, pick a theme, and make a game from scratch over the weekend. Then we vote on our favorites.
Nowadays, we do it 3 times per year, this one being our regular December competition. In the off months, we also have members of the community choosing a theme for our mini monthly competitions. These mini competitions also gives us the opportunity to try out new things. Rule tweaks, and whatnot.
So if you’re a game maker looking for a reason to make something, check us out.
