Small worlds, big ideas highlight Ludum Dare 38

Creating a video game in 72 hours is no small feat, regardless of the size of its world.

That was evident on Monday as speedy developers concluded Ludum Dare 38, marking the 15th year of the signature online game jam.

This weekend’s theme was “A Small World.”

For those unaware of the event (yet somehow on this small indie game site), creators must make a game from scratch during the three-day event.

Founded in April 2002, the Ludum Dare community runs its accelerated game jam every four months in April, August and December. Itโ€™s both the longest running and the largest online game jam out there. The jam this past December had more than 2,300 submissions.

Judging of the games will take place later this week, but first, here is a Tweet peak at some of the games being submitted:
