Ludum Dare 47 - 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, October 2nd - Sunday, October 4th
Where
: Discord

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.
