Ludum Dare 32 @ 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 this is the 32th round of Ludum Dare (a nice “round” number), we are preparing a local game jam site here at MFF UK. 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 alone or in a team. You can come with a team already formed or find teammates at the site!

Game jam will happen during the weekend 18.–19. 4. 2015. The theme for the game jam will be announced 18 April at 3 AM (local time), Saturday morning, and we will start to think, design and code then. Therefore we will gather between 2:15–2:30 in front of the S building of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics. Event will take place at rooms S8, S9 and in case of big audience S10 as well. If you don’t come in the very beginning, don’t worry, you can join later… in fact, any time you want. Call Jakub Gemrot at +420 724 508 170 when you get to the faculty building, he will let you in.

There are two competition categories: The Compo (solo) and The Jam (teams). The Compo category has deadline Monday 20 April 3:00 AM and the Jam category Tuesday 21 April 3:00 AM. Unfortunately, we will have to end the event on Monday 20 April 8:00 AM due to the teaching; we kindly ask all teams to secure another place for Monday and Tuesday morning.

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!

Let us know you’re coming via Facebook event!
