Ludum Dare is an online jam, but you don't have to stay at home if you don't want to! We're setting up a casual venue at the University of Adelaide if you want to jam and make games with friends (new and old) instead of in your house. As per usual, there's an opportunity to come visit after 6pm on Sunday to see some games and join us for pancakes afterward, if you're not able to come to the whole jam.

VENUE TIMES:
11am - late Saturday
9am - 8pm Sunday

JAM TIMES:
Compo: 11:30am Saturday to 11:30am Monday
Jam: 11:30am Saturday to 11:30am Tuesday

SOCIAL TIMES:
We'd love to see you at the pancake kitchen Sunday night, and for a small games showcase from 6pm or so.

It's been a week since Global Game Jam, and everytime we have to ask ourselves what to do now, we'll remember our great weekend! Winners for our jam site were announced on Sunday afternoon, but here they are again for your viewing pleasure:
- Patrick with "Alien Evolution", a great little game about what to do when you come to conquer a planet but here's nothing there to conquer. http://globalgamejam.org/2015/games/alien-evolution
- Andrada, Ben, Henry, Kathy and Phil with "Two Keys", a multiplayer game with awesome voice acting and far too many zombies for your computer to handle. http://globalgamejam.org/2015/games/two-keys
- Andrew with UpDownLeftRight, a game about rescuing astronauts and flying into asteroids, written entirely left handed. http://globalgamejam.org/2015/games/updownleftright
Thankyou to everyone who came along, it was an awesome weekend because you helped to make it that way! You can play ALL the games from our site on the Global Game Jam website, and we'll be hosting slightly-more-complete versions of most games on our website in the next couple of weeks.

This time around, we're teaming up with AGPU at UniSA to try out some new jam spaces and make some new friends. AGPU also has great support for beginning jammers: if you're keen to try making a game but don't know where to start, maybe you should consider visiting their miniLD warm-up jam for some practice! https://www.facebook.com/events/314771502049996/

Meet us in the Ground Floor Lecture Hall for the opening address and theme announcement, and then head up to the fourth floor to jam it out.

VENUE TIMES:
11am - late Saturday
9am - late Sunday
9am - 3pm Monday
Please note: no entry to venue between 12am and 9am.

JAM TIMES:
Compo: 12:30pm Saturday to 12:30pm Monday
Jam: 12:30pm Saturday to 12:30pm Tuesday

SOCIAL TIMES:
We'd love to see you at the pancake kitchen Sunday night, but not if everyone's hard at work! We'll be deciding on the night.
