If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’re probably familiar with Ludum Dare, a 48-hour game development competition. In addition to their thrice yearly events, members of the community hold “MiniLD” events which are similar, but with a theme chosen by the organizer rather than one voted upon by the community, and with varying adjustments to the rules. It’s all really up to whoever is running it at the time. MiniLD #26 is set for May 27-29, this time being run by one drZool. You can read more about the competition and rules here. If you’re looking to brush up on those coding skills, or just to make a game for the fun of it, events like these are good for both.
