Jamuarary™ is LDG's annual game jam! The purpose of this jam is to take advantage of the time of year where we haven't given up on our dreams yet, where we say "This is the beginning of the rest of my life!", where we have all the vim and vigor to devote to making something that expresses our truest desires for our future and like a great red supergiant THAT WILL INEVITABLY DESTROY ITSELF BUT WITH A FINAL BURST OF SPECTACULAR ENERGY SHOW THE UNIVERSE QUITE LITERALLY WHAT WE ARE MADE OF!!!1! *catches breathe* *clears throat*... And to make a really sweet pun.

I really cannot wait to see what you all create, as last year was such a blast and we had so many impressive entries!
