Knox Game Design will be meeting at Panera Bread on North Peters Rd on Friday October 1, 2021 for a Ludum Dare 49 kickoff. The theme announcement is at 6pm Eastern Time, so we will plan to arrive around 5:30pm for the countdown.
An overview of various ways to distribute your video game. First, a historical look at various physical media that can be used for distributing digital content. Then a look at multiple online sites that provide hosting and marketplaces for video games.

You play as robot making it’s way through a impossible facility filled with mechanical ghosts. You must keep your batteries filled by standing under strange floating light sources, and avoid the ghosts by not staying in their detection for too long.
Keep the chickens alive by clicking on the falling apples to prevent them from falling on the chicken’s head. If an apple hits a chicken, then it is knocked out. Additional chickens are awarded after clicking a number of apples. Once all of the chickens are knocked out, the game is over.
There will not be a regular “second Sunday of the month” meeting this month due to Easter Sunday.
However, we will do an online Ludum Dare 46 kickoff on Friday April 17, 2020 at 7:00pm Eastern Time. This will take the place of the regularly scheduled April meeting, and it will be recorded and posted as the monthly podcast.
