RVA Game Jams | Open House

Ludum Dare is a 48 hour rapid video game development challenge (also known as a game jam)  that occurs several times a year. Developers can participate in two ways – the competition, which requires developers to work solo and create everything from scratch, or the jam, which allows for teams to make a game based on the theme with relaxed rules and an extra 24 hours to participate. For more info on Ludum Dare  registration and a list of all the rules, check out their website!

We would love for you to RSVP for this event so we can plan accordingly – RSVP on Facebook
