LUDUM DARE 41 SITE @ MFF UK


WHAT?

Ludum Dare is a competition in development of games, especially computer ones. Anybody can sign up and compete for honor and fun. However, the competition is not important, what is important is the fact that Ludum dare brings together many people of various skills at the same time; an opportunity to meet new friends, acquire new skills, try out new ideas, be creative. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned game developer, Ludum Dare is for you. Details are available at the competition website Ludum Dare and Ludum Dare 41 post specifically. Rules as summarized here Ludum Dare Rules.

As we (MFF UK) have a course on Practical Game Development, we are organizing at least one real game jam site every semester. So now, it’s Ludum Dare 41!

Our site is opened for everybody! Everyone who is interested in game development can come and join a group of people of a good-ol’-game-makers 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!

Note that Ludum Dare is not limited to computer games, you can design board games as well!

We are seasoned organizers, we already run sites for LD32, LD34LD35, LD37, LD38, LD40 in the past.

ORGANIZATION

The theme for the game jam will be announced 21.4.2018 03:00 AM so you might be wondering what will be happening on 20.4., right?

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

And we will have HTC Vive installed there accessible for free 😉 … Preview of Beat Saber available!

The site is available till 22.4.2018 10:00 PM.

There will also be an on-site play-testing sessions organized during the weekend!

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 the organizers at +420 776 323 819 when you arrive.

We will have Wi-Fi with internet connection prepared as well as a kettle, microwave, toaster, induction heater, shower, cups, glasses.

We provide free refreshments! Home-cooked meals (vegetarian, Sat and Sun only), pop-corn, toasts (salami / cheese), fruits, candy bars, cola, coffee, tea, sparkling water.

You can sleep over at the site (there is also a shower free of charge in the building). We have 7 floating mattresses to lend, you can book a mattress here. Just be sure to bring your own blanket / sleeping bag. In case all the mattresses are booked, you can bring your own, the floor capacity is rather large 😉

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!

The Compo (solo) deadline is 23.4.2018 03:00 AM while The Jam (teams) deadline is 24.4.2018 03:00 AM. We kindly ask all teams to secure another place for Monday and Tuesday if you wish to continue working on your game after the site closes.
