Ludum Dare 46 - Online Game Jam 

Due to the current public health crisis, we can't get together for Ludum Dare in person, but that doesn't mean the fun has to stop. We are taking the party (and learning) online!

When: Friday, April 17th - Sunday, April 19th
Where: DiscordTwitch

Join us and collaborate with fellow game developers and artists to challenge yourself to create new and exciting video games.

Look forward to:

  • Video game development
  • Community networking
  • Creativity & collaboration
  • Learning new skills

Whether this is your first Jam or you are a seasoned veteran, don't pass up this opportunity to learn about our local industry and collaborate with people from the community. 

We know this "new normal" can be creatively isolating, so take advantage of our virtual weekend out. Learn some new skills while you work with other programmers, artists, musicians to develop your game in this fun and supportive environment. 

Event t-shirts are also available to purchase for a limited time only via pre-order. All profits from the sale will be used for future community events. Pre-order here: https://interactiveindie.com/shop.
