Interested in game development? Makers Local 256 is organizing a real-world gathering and team for participating in this weekend’s Ludum Dare competition! If you’re not a programmer or game designer, don’t worry; teams need artists, musicians, writers, testers, bloggers, social media, fresh ideas, gamer know-how, and probably other things, too! The 72-hour team competition runs from 8pm CST Friday, April 25th, until 8pm CST Monday, April 28th. The 48-hour solo competition runs from 8pm CST Friday, April 25th, until 8pm CST Sunday, April 27th.
Visit the website to find out more about Ludum Dare and to vote for the theme, which will be announced at the opening of the competition tonight!
We suggest being at the shop at 7pm if possible to begin organization and prepare before then. We’ll be live-blogging the event on the Ludum Dare 29 wiki page. We’ll have a webcam up for streaming on Charlaxy’s Twitch stream, in addition to the shop cameras.
Hope to see you there with your game-making faces on.
