Ludum Dare 38 @ MFF

Ludum Dare is a competition in development of games, especially computer ones. Anybody can sign up and we compete for honor and fun. Detailed information is available at the competition website Ludum Dare.

As we have a course on Practical Game Development we will be organizing at least one real game jam site every term at MFF UK. And it will the most likely always be a Ludum Dare site!

However, the site is opened for everybody! Everyone who is interested in game development can come and join a group of techy people that will fight through the 48 hours to create a fun game. You can create a game alone or in a team. You can come with a team already formed or find teammates at the site!

We already run sites for LD32, LD34LD35, LD37

LudumDare 38 Site Information

ORGANIZATION

Game jam will happen during the weekend 21.–23. 4. 2017.

The site opens at 21.4.2017 04:00 PM. (All times are local time == GMT+1). The site is organized in the S building of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics. Event will take place at rooms S8-S11.

The theme for the game jam will be announced 22.4.2017 03:00 AM so you might be wondering what will be happening on 21.4., right?

We are preparing a Unity CrashCourse for all jammers where you can learn very basics of game development with Unity and setup your project in advance!

There will be also an on-site playtesting sessions organized!

And the site is available till 23.4.2017 10:00 PM.

The Compo (solo) deadline is 24.4.2017 03:00 AM while The Jam (teams) deadline is 25.4.2017 03:00 AM.

We kindly ask all teams to secure another place for Monday and Tuesday if you wish to continue on your game.

We will be entering and leaving the building using the side entrance. You can find it inside the passage at the left side of the building (the same passage you would use to enter the restaurant Profesní dům). Again, call Jakub Gemrot at +420 724 508 170 when you arrive.

We will have Wi-Fi with internet connection prepared as well as a kettle, microwave and shower. You can sleep on the floor if you bring the necessary equipment.

Of course, bring anything you may need for game development (laptop, gamepads, joysticks, cell phones, pencils, papers, scissors, etc.) and also something to eat and drink!
