The time is (almost) now!
Tomorrow we will meetup at the TechCo starting at 7PM and the Ludum Dare Game Jam officially kicks off at 9PM. I’ve moved things up an hour as we may have a few guests from the press in attendance checking out the group and jam, plus I’ll also be bringing a laptop loaded with indie games to play and get the ideas rolling.
Let me stress again your game does not need to be complex and you don’t need to spend every hour of the jam devoted to making the game. The Ludum Dare was started because “for many people, it can be difficult to find or make the time create a game or prototype for yourself. We’re here to be your excuse.” If you’ve been lurking in the mailing list or thinking about making a game but don’t know where to start this jam is for you! Come out, ask some questions, and the other members will help you get started.
