'Tis time! Gomez LD website has been down for maintenance but is finally back up today. LD47 can be joined and themes can be suggested.

An update was written about the maintenance: LD blog post.



Semicopypasted explanation of LD from last thread:

LD is a game jam. You optionally vote for a theme in the days running up to the event, and then based on that theme or keyword you get 48 or 72 hours (plus a submission hour) to make a game! You need to go on the website, log in, and click 'join event' before it starts!

48 hours is referred to as "compo" and 72 as "jam" and they have different rules—jam is more relaxed and you're allowed to work in a team—so make sure you read the rules on the website first.

When the time is up, a couple of weeks of playing games and rating/commenting them (only people who submitted their own games can do this) commences, and if you want to get ratings/comments yourself you need to do this.

You don't win anything beyond good ratings/comments at best, but it's fun and you always grow a little bit as a developer, as does your portfolio!

Remember that you need to host your game yourself—the LD website does not provide this. The website has a guide for this. I personally recommend itch.io. Also you need to make it work at least on web or Windows (I think?) to be allowed to submit your game.




Twitter hashtag: #LDJAM (even if you're doing the compo)

  • Great blog post from an earlier LD here on considering keyboard differences between countries and so on, and more to bear in mind!
  • Here is another post describing to fix broken macOS .app files when zipped from Windows.

Thought I read it somewhere, but can't find anything about it. So perhaps I'm mistaken.

Yeah, normally do. Can't really commit to three days the jam would take. I know I wouldn't have to use all three days but it would so tempting too.

I'm having a bit of trouble coming up with anything interesting for the theme.

As usual I slept through the announcement to get started at a reasonable time in my time zone, so I've spent about two hours on the idea now and I think I've got something! Starting now…

Been a while since you wrote this, so how are you faring now? Grin

Decided not to start anything yesterday but I did chat with my partner a lot last night about the theme and we ended up coming up with an idea. As usual it involves cats haha.

Got a small prototype going now. I'm also taking this jam to learn Unity a bit more. I picked it up again last week after not using it since 2012. So far it's been remarkably smooth! It's come a long way since I last used it.

Will check yours and the rest out a bit later today or tomorrow Smiley

That was fun. It's been like 4 years since I've done a jam. Did a lot to help me remember why I got into making games Smiley
