Every so often, the Squishies stop playing games for three days and instead make one! We have entered the Ludum Dare Jam twice before as a community, and on 22 to 25 August, we’re going to do it again. How it normally works is that we make voxel-styled games, with all the assets built in Minecraft, on our server, as a group. Anyone’s welcome to participate – you don’t need to be a master builder or Picasso or whatever, just someone on our whitelist with a love for creating stuff.
Ludum Dare is a game jam – an event in which individuals or teams get a limited amount of time to make a whole game from scratch. The team competition has a three day time limit.

And here’s Big Dave’s review of Lepton’s Quest, just so you can see more or less what the end result looks like.
