Ludum Dare 28 ends with 2,000 free games: Fountain, Monocraft, more


The massive, two-pronged game jam Ludum Dare 28 started and ended this weekend, and the completed games are up for judging now, for 19 more days. The theme this year was "You only get one." Ludum Dare comprises two, simultaneous game-making marathons: one solo, 48-hour jam with prizes, and one team-optional, 72-hour jam with more relaxed rules.

Games up for judging include Terry Cavanagh's introspective Fountain, Mattia Traverso's one-brick Minecraft spin Monocraft, vallde's planetary annihilation game Bounty Hunting, Claw's minimized colossus title Titan Souls, and 5elephants' artistic archery shooter One Arrow (shown above). Also spawned in the jam is Hypnotic Owl's powerful story, The Day the Laughter Stopped – it's an intense, narrative-driven game heavy with trigger warnings, but well worth a play-through.

Ludum Dare 28 received 2,064 entries and all of them are playable for free right here. You only get one 2,064.
