Ludum Dare Game Development Competition – April 18th

Ludum Dare is back this April! We’re going to be participating in the Ludum Dare Game Development Competition. Ludum Dare is an international ‘for fun’ game development competition that is run three times each year; April 2014’s competition had almost 2500 games submitted. We’ll be hosting a collab day on Saturday April 18th for everyone to participate. You must be at least 18 years old to attend, or must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for the duration.

In a new twist this time around, we’re also going to have some teams working on creating board games in line with the video game development competition. So if programming doesn’t interest you, come give indie board games a try!

No experience is required, and teams are encouraged; we’ll have some experienced developers participating to help give pointers. It’s a great way to learn about programming, rapid design, development, and have a great time while doing it!

Cost is $10 for non-members, $5 for members, to cover facility costs and refreshments

Hope to see you there!
