WELCOME to the CGDC's new Speedgame Challenge, SPEEDGAME: HARDMODE! This is a new addition from the CGDC community and the plan is to roll this challenge out twice a year.

The Speedgame: Hardmode is the new format that adopts the Ludum Dare format and focuses on pushing your game development and organizational skills. You have 72 hours to create a game based off of a community voted theme. Whether it has a spiritual teaching or not is totally up to you. One thing is for sure, this format is going to help level you up!

THEME is Kintsukuro/Kintsugi: Beauty through brokenness!

The challenge starts at 6pm on May 15th, and will run until May 18th, culminating at 6pm. The voting categories are the following:

  • Most Innovative
  • Most Fun
  • Best Graphics
  • Best Audio (How good or effective is the sound)
  • Best Mood (Storytelling, emotion, and vibe)
  • Best Overall

You are encouraged to start a development blog in the community area of the jam so we can see your process!

Still working out Prizes, but there will be prizes! Stay tuned to this area for updates!


  • Projects must be submitted by or before the deadline to qualify for prizes. No entries, patches, bug fixes, or edits of any kind will be allowed after the deadline. Please check your timezone to make sure you submit on time. Give yourself enough time to upload your entry.
  • Projects must list the resources they used and give credit, if resources were not created by you.
  • Teams must not be greater than three people.
  • All games must be created during the course of the challenge, not before.
  • It is encouraged that games be made open source at the end of the challenge to allow other developers to see the underpinnings of your projects. This way we foster an open community that builds each other up by sharing resources. If certain licenses of libraries or tools do not permit you to make them open source, then omit these. NOTE: This only applies to the challenge game, not to any later revisions or iterations that you make to your game, in case you decide to continue work on the game, for example.
  • Some criteria must be met:
    • Games must not contain any extremes of the following: violence, sexual content, occult practices, or language. Use restraint.
    • Games must not breach any copyright laws. No plagiarism or taking other’s work as your own!
  • Any tools you can leverage for this challenge can be used.
  • You can reuse any libraries you may have previously created such as graphic, keyboard, or sound routines. Regarding libraries in general, if any are necessary to play your game, please add them as part of the zip or installation file so others do not have to go hunting down ways to play your game.
  • Please make your games playable in any of the following environments: Windows 7/8/10, Mac/Linux, Web
  • Games must include instructions on how to play your game such as controls and how the game works. A quick readme file, or in-game tutorial outlining the controls and general background information would be useful!
