Ld 23 was my first Ludum Dare and one of the things that I’ve come to love about it is trying out other peoples games. Not only is it fun, but it’s also inspirational. However, there’s a problem. There’s no way to save your favorites (that I know of, aside from bookmarking the page). I can’t remember half of the great games I played in LD 23 and when there’s 1400 entries, I’ll probably never find them again.
Having a favorites button, I think will accomplish 2 things. First it will allow Ludum Dare participants to organize and accumulate a list of awesome LD games and second it could serve as an additional category in the ranking process. Not only will it give the developer a nice boost of confidence, but it will also be another way to measure a games success. It would be cool to see how many people favorited your game and compare it to the top 5.
Just a suggestion, but I think it would be a pretty cool addition.
