Ludum Dare is a world renowned rapid game development competition which started in 2002 and has since increased in popularity due to the participation of professionals such as Notch (creator of minecraft). Once again, AUCS will be holding a meetup in Room 205, Meston Building at the University of Aberdeen.
The event will start on the evening of the 14th of December and run through until the end of the competition.
Entry to Ludum Dare can be one of two types: the competition is a solo development contest spanning 48 hours or a jam which is usually set up by a group which spans 78 hours. The jam is an informal session and is not graded in the competition. Throughout the competition, the room will continue to be streamed live over the Internet via two webcams donated to the room. Last year, this led to a large number of other participants viewing this webcam and communicating with us via Twitter. Tweets to @RoomTwoZeroFive will be read out by our resident text-to-speech robot.
A schedule for the start will appear here soon. Expect pizza. Do not expect the pizza to be free.
