If you want the theme to be something normal, you should submit "something normal" as a theme idea.

We could have a "something normal" stencyl jam.

For LD, I'm thinking about trying to make a comic book game. I think having the game happen in a comic book would be an interesting and applicable to many different themes.

I've to skip this one since that conflicts with a suprirse-' Sinterklaas ' weekend which is kind of like Santa Claus.
I wish all the contenders a fun-weekend and hope that the theme is applicable for your needs.

Same-ish concept. Of course, I suck at pixel art so it won't be the same graphics. And I probably won't have time to make a whole fighting game after the graphics are done. I'll have to see where the theme takes me. It would be neat to have a comic book where you are making choices and changing the next page/frame.

Hey guys! Its me again. My name is Tanner Daniels, I'm 16, and am a Dubstep producer as a hobby. Every Ludum Dare, I create a new track to announce that I AM IN!!! This LD, I created this...
This Ludum Dare track... I focused on created a track with vocals and a hard-hitting breakdown. This is defiantly the most complex and best "I'm In" track that I've every created. I created all this using Fl Studio 11, and I created everything myself. I really enjoyed creating this song, and I hope you enjoy listening.

I'm super excited for this next Ludum Dare! Last LD, I reached #26 in audio!!!!!! I was 1 off my all-time dream! This LD, my goal is top 25 in audio. Goodluck guys, and I'M IN!!!

Because I am terrible in art.

what I mean by this is it's impossible to get #1, without having a game that people love everything about. Many people rate other categories, by other categories. Plus, I said top 25, that can include #1. :)

Yeah, ludum dare judging is obscure. If someone really likes a game, they will rate it all 5's regardless of art or music, etc. Same goes if they do not like a game, everything gets rated as 1's. I used to see that when I would judge science competitions. Some judges would just give out perfect scores all over the place. They wouldn't even be able to defend their reason for saying a project deserved first place.

My goal for LD is always to make a game in 48 hours that teaches me something new. I do not really put stock in what the judges say :)

I always find the comments more interesting than the final scores. People that actually take time to say something (good feedback or otherwise) provide more information than just a number can.
My last LD was a Twine game and a few people commented that they liked the humor; amusingly so since it was not deliberately attempted to be humorous. Makes me wonder what would happen if I deliberately tried instead :)

This is the weekend after my mock exams, so it will be very touch and go whether I'll be burnt out or not, but I may try to have a go.
