Ludum Dare 37 @ 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.

LudumDare37 – Event & Site Info [TODO, currently old from LD35]


Game jam will happen during the weekend 9.–13. 12. 2016.

The site opens at 9.12.2016 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 S6, S7 and S4.

The theme for the game jam will be announced 10.12.2016 03:00 AM so you might be wondering what will be happening on 9.12., right?

We are preparing a workshop for all jammers where you can taste the spirit of the jam, meeting fellow jammers and perhaps start forming new teams and friendships. Part of the workshop will be dedicated to creating own small board game prototype so you will have many opportunities to talk to other jammers.

There will be also an on-site playtesting session organized on 10.12.2016 07:00 PM.

And the site is available till 11.12.2016 11:00 PM.

The Compo (solo) deadline is 12.12.2016 03:00 AM while The Jam (teams) deadline is 13.12.2016 03:00 AM.

We kindly ask all teams to secure another place for Monday.

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!
