Ludum Dare takes place over the weekend: from Friday night to Sunday night. Participants vote for a week on a theme that gets announced Friday, 9 PM New York time. After that, you have 48 hours to make a game! Come to Babycastles at 6:30 PM to meet other jammers and optionally join a team. Jammers without experience are welcome! Artists, musicians and writers can team up with programmers, make a non-digital game or use the jam time to learn a new tool.

Participants are invited to stay in the space for the entire jam, but they can also move to their own venues after the theme is announced. Sleeping and eating in the space are permitted. Please bring a sleeping bag or mat if you plan on sleeping there. There is a YMCA downstairs (we can show you how to get a trial pass) and lots of food options nearby (bagels downstairs, pizza, a taco truck, 24-hour donut pub, 24-hour 7-11 and everything else around 14th street). [+ ••] WOW RAD BUT HOW TO MAKE GAME? Non-digital games are welcome, so having pen, paper and your imagination is enough to make something! If you are interested, however, in making a digital game and don't have a tool or method to use, there is software that can be learned in a few hours. Some of the options are Twine, PuzzleScript, Scratch, Stencyl and RPG Maker. Type them into a search engine! If you want to learn how to make a controller, we have a kit called Makey Makey that turns ordinary objects into USB game controllers. [+ ••] If you have any questions about the jam or facilities, please post them!
