Ludum dare 26
On the weekend of April 26th to the 29th Ludum dare 26 starts, a game programming competition where you judge eachother's works. There'll be a competition and a 'jam', like previous ludum dares. The theme isn't known yet, suggest a theme here.
Let us know whether you plan on entering, and show us the end result when the competition is over!
Happy Newyear everyone
graph = init();
if (rand (0,100) > 25)
process banner(x,y, graph)
velocity.vangle = rand (0,360000);
velocity.vspeed = rand (2,12);
while( x > 0 and x < 900 and y > 0 and y < 600)
Ludum Dare 20 is nigh!
On April 29th, Ludum Dare 20 will begin!
Join the classic solo Competition and make a game from scratch within 48 hours! Who needs sleep anyway?
Alternatively there's the Jam, which allows for teams and has relaxed rules. Entries in the Jam won't be judged, but as an entrant you'll still be able to judge the Compo games. Even if you don't join, you can download and play the newly crafted masterpieces.
If you're new to LD, be sure to read the rules carefully. Voting for themes will begin soon, so make sure your favourite theme wins! And most importantly, have fun!
Ludum dare 18 - August 20-22 Weekend
There will be another Ludum Dare game programming competition in the weekend of August 20th-22nd. You can suggest a theme here. There will apparently be some big changes over previous competitions as discussed here.
Chatroom temporarily out -> use #bilge2 instead
Invasion England has caused a horrible glitch in the matrix that causes everyone to lose their voice on #bilge. Don't worry though, us hackers have come up with a alternative solution to fight the evil system lords by creating a temporary channel: #bilge2.
Make being quiet all day choice and join in.
New games in the galleries
The last few months a bunch of games have been uploaded, that have only recently been approved (apologies for the time it took to do so). Have a look at them and don't forget to comment!

Bennu Game Development - bennugd.co.uk
There is now a english forum for Bennu.
You will find here the latest news and builds for Bennu, coding help, a sumbissions showcase, tools and much more.
It's a lot better looking than the bennugd.org one and it's actually not spanish!! But seriously, it opens up Bennu support to a lot more people, and hopefully will inspire more people to use the great games-dev language Bennu.
Domain Name Problems
As you may have noticed, the domain name had a brief(ish) period of being-expired-ness but its back under control now and the site is once again back on the interpipes.
What happened? Basically the site's previous host still had full control over the domain and let it expire without telling us. After a long wait they finally responded to our emails to let us know that they couldn't renew the domain because the credit card they had on file had expired. By the time we'd updated the payment details, the domain had entered the next stage in its long journey back into public availability - a stage which both the host and the registrar seemed to be confused about. The host told us to ask the registrar to renew the domain. The registrar told us to ask the host. Anyway, we've now managed to get the domain registered with a decent registrar so there'll be no more of this nonsense.
