Ludum Dare 37 is next weekend!
This is a milestone for Ludum Dare, as they are running this jam on their new website, ldjam.com. The old website had served admirably for many years, but lately the scale of the event has exceeded its capability, and the ad hoc customizations to the wordpress site were such that it was difficult to maintain the site. The new site will be a welcome renovation as well as a new foundation from which a better LD will be possible.
I am planning on using GameMaker Studio 1.4 one last time (probably) for LD37, because GMS2 is still in beta, and YYG have not yet released the HTML5 module, and I prefer to be able to create a HTML5 build of my project so that more people can play it. I’m looking forward to learning what the theme will be.
