This looks neat, I should try this, a time limit will probably help me see a game out to the end.

Hey thanks for posting this. The Ludum Dare's always fly by me. Nobody ever tells when they are Smiley

It's bit of a problematic weekend for me, but I think I could fit this in to my schedule... I'd get my monthly game done.

Hmmm... I'd love to enter but it'd be hard to convince my parents to let me stay up for 48 hours... but I'll try :D

I'd recommend sleeping a little and I'm not alone Smiley

Yeah, you're totally expected to sleep.  Some of us did the no sleep thang in the original 24 our compo, but it's more bragging rights than actually useful.

I might not be the best person to give advice on this, but yeah, sleep is definitely recommended.  You'll probably work much better when refreshed than when bone tired, better quality in less time.  Also, sleep means being away from your game for a little while, giving you a fresh perspective when you return.  Dreams can also be useful for expanding on ideas and giving you new ones.  Also remember to eat and drink, and get some fresh air once in a while Smiley

You sign up the same you would to add your previous games.  Just you don't have any games to post... yet. Smiley

Ah, but of course, my parents were complete jerks and they didn't understand... Sigh... I guess I won't be able to enter this one, or if I do, I'll have a huge headache... What's so wrong about spending 40 of 48 hours up and coding? It's not like I haven't done it before... Sad

You don't have to stay up all night.  I wouldn't.  Undecided

Looks like it's now down to just ten themes:

   AI Opponent
   Aquarium
   Architecture
   Chain Reaction
   Colonization
   Evolution
   Flight
   Flood
   Reverse time
   Time travel

I'm still not quite sure if I'm taking part or not. All depends on whether or not I like the final theme, I guess.

The big day is here.  17.5 hours and counting.  Check the side bar for the latest count down timer.

Be there, or be dead...  Shocked

So basically, I join the site, write my game and submit it as a blog post?  Or am I missing some kind of registration link?

It's just that simple.  You can do more if you want, like posting progress logs and shots, but you're not required to.

Just a little update on this..  The compo is over (has been over for a few days now..), with more than 50 finished entries.  Voting is now in progress, for the next two weeks Smiley  (Only people who finished an entry can vote.)

It's a bit difficult to find all the final entries for non-participants currently since Wordpress can't mix categories and tags apparently, but hopefully that'll get better when the voting period is over (or look for posts here marked with the 'final' tag).
