More Great Games from the Jam!
The Jam is huge – simple as that. With 64 games this time, the Jam is now larger than some of the earlier Ludum Dare events. I regret that we still don’t do more for the jammers, but don’t fret, we are thinking of you. We’d like to encourage everyone to check out the Jam games, and leave a comment. Here are four to get you started:
Again, this is just a taste of some of the great games to be found in the Jam.

Seriously, go check them out!

IndieGames.com’s 250 Indie Games You Must Play
Editor of IndieGames.com Michael Rose has recently released his new book “250 Indie Games You Must Play”. I know we’re a pretty significant source of great freebies and not-so-freebies (see the featured games in the sidebar), so I fired off a question last night: Did any Ludum Dare games make the book?
Mike had this to say:
Yep, quite a number [of times] actually
We here at Ludum Dare love talking about ourselves, and though we may not have coffee tables to prominently show a book on, coffee is a significant source of caffeine, so I’m sold.
Visit your favorite Amazon and pick it up.
Ludum Dare breaks 2000 on Twitter!
As the organizers, Phil and I tend to amuse ourselves each event with little statistics to gauge the growth of the community. One I’ve been keeping a close eye on for LD20 is our twitter follower count. Early this morning, the @ludumdare twitter account finally broke 2000 followers! Wow!
We use the twitter account as a way to share little updates. Reminders, press coverage, and the occasional amusing quip we catch in the Twitterverse or on IRC. If you’re in to that sort of thing, and do the twitter thang, follow us!
Also if you haven’t already, sign up for the mailing list. Even if you do hound twitter reading each and every post, we make an effort to get the most important news to you via e-mail too.
Ludum Dare 21 – Coming August 2011!!
May Mini LD #26, hosted by drZool
I agree, August is quite a ways away. How about this weekend then? Yes, tune in Friday for a brand new MiniLD event hosted by drZool. He’s been teasing with D’s all month… I wonder what he’s up to?
If you have any suggestions for us (website, observations, etc), we continue to collect them in the comments here:
Thanks everyone for coming out and making Ludum Dare 20 such a big success! We’ll see you again in August!
