The Compo and Jam parts of Ludum Dare 24 have ended, but we’re not done yet!
Over the next 3 weeks, be sure to come back to play and rate games made by your peers. To be ranked, you need ratings! The best way to get more ratings is to play and rate games. Doing so improves your games visibility.
NOTE: Jam games, only the submitter gets to vote. Unfortunately, aside from sharing the account, we don’t have a way for the entire team to vote. Sorry.
By now, you should not be touching your game code anymore (unless you’re making a post-compo version). That said, we do allow the following:
- Crashes – If your game dies at an important moment, you are allowed to fix this.
- Typo bugs – Little oops bugs, not features. Things you may have broke last minute.
Those are the only two types fixes you are allowed to make at this point. No New Features! If you want to add things, we call that a post-compo version. It’s your game, so you’re free to do whatever you want with it, but for the sake of judging we want you to preserve the version you submitted to the event.
Ports to different platforms are allowed after the deadline. You should get them in as soon as possible, and should be functionally the same as your submitted version. Porting to a mobile platform like Android may require adding on screen controls; This is allowed.
Remember: Web is the most popular platform. 2nd most popular is Windows. If you want to find Linux/other games, use the search box on the View All page.
Coming up next month (September), and every off month, members of the community run Mini-LD challenges. Check back in a couple weeks for that.
Coming up in October is a special event of ours the October Challenge. The October Challenge is where we encourage you take your first steps towards earning money from making games. For details, you can check last years event. Any companies interested in offering incentives can contact me (Mike Kasprzak) over here.
Finally, Ludum Dare 25 will be December 2012. Date to be announced as we get closer.
Thanks everyone, and lets go rate some games!
