=======================

Its getting that time of year again! Ludum Dare 31 is on its way again!!! Last LD was great, with the updated site and Mike Kasprzack running LD full time now, this LD should be even better! Are you in? http://ludumdare.com/compo/
 
Now, the important part, me. Last LD was great for me! I placed high in all categories, and people LOVED my music! (My LD's game thread last year) http://community.stencyl.com/index.php/topic,34703.0.html . ( Read my whole Announcement. http://ludumdare.com/compo/2014/11/14/im-in-with-some-sick-new-beats/ )
 
Back to the less important part, you. Are you in? And what are your goals?
 
Goodluck!!!! ;)

Am I the only one in? It will be a pretty lonely dare this year... :'(

It's still 16 days away, so you won't see much interest yet.  I haven't decided yet if I'll set aside time for this one.

It's a 2-3 day game competition.  Here are the rules: http://ludumdare.com/compo/rules/

Quick question,
 am I allowed to publish my game on the chrome store and make a topic about it so I can still be in Ludum Dare 31 ?   
Peace

You can do whatever you want with the game as long as it is started when the theme is announced and finished before 2 or 3 days (depending on which part of the competition you enter).

I might have to give it a shot this year. Always looked like fun.

It's not a "real" thing. You can make a game and upload it from home.
Haha, I'm just imagining 2000 developers sitting in a hall together;

And, yes I'll probably try and do something like normal, but I doubt I'll submit anything.

i have to start making games.

I did my first LD when I had barely started in game dev. I would say go for it and try your best to hammer out some game mechanics within the 2 days. Even if you don't submit, it should still be fun.

It doesn't seem cool  ::)

You don't have to meet up with anybody. There is nothing cool or uncool about it. You make a game in 3 days as part of a team or 2-3 days solo. It is meant to push yourself as a developer. I've only done two, and both times I have learned a ton about game development in those 2 days.

I'm definitely doing it. My goal is to hit higher on the graphics side. I might do the jam this go around so I can use some outside assets.
