Description

We may not be able to 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!

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.

FAQ

***Do I need experience to participate?***

No experience is required, but work is mostly self-directed and requires a certain degree of self-commitment. We encourage attendees to come in with a basic set of skills or go through some tutorials before the event. Alternatively you can also choose to download tutorial projects from the game engine of your choosing.
