Feel like making a game this weekend? Why not participate in Ludum Dare! Similar to Global Game Jam, it’s an international event where people all over the globe make a game from scratch in one weekend. You can either go hardcore and participate in the 48hour solo competition or kick back with an extra day and join in the jam by yourself or with some friends. If you are interested in finding out what Perth people are doing or are looking to join a group, hit up the Perth Ludum Dare Facebook group.
