Ludum Dare 38 Closes with Record Number of Submissions

Annual game jam Ludum Dare just finished up its 38th event, which ran from April 21 to April 24. It also marked the fifteenth anniversary of Ludum Dare!

This anniversary, as well as the theme of “A Small World” drew all kinds of attention. By the final hour of submissions, over 2900 games were added. The site also slowed to a crawl so much that it is still open today for submissions because of the technical trouble.

With nearly 3000 games submitted, this is by far the most successful Ludum Dare yet. Voting begins on Friday but you can already start playing the games on LDJam or itch.io.
