    It would be really cool if somebody assembled a crack team of game critics and established game developers to go through all the raw entries submitted by up and coming game makers to Ludum Dare, providing constructive criticism.  And maybe some press for the solid ones.  

    It is getting to be a bit of a tall task as LD grows though.  There’s over 700 entries, and the next compo is their 10 year anniversary.

      Not entirely the same thing, but sounds to me like you might enjoy the IGF Pirate Kart reviews: That should keep you busy for the next year :)

    I can’t seem to get the crafting to work :(

    It’s quite impressive, and pretty entertaining.

    The building is limited – if you dig up dirt, you can put it down in water to make land bridges.  Collected acorns can be planted to grow into trees that form a wall.  To craft, “use” your workbench to put it on the ground.  Walk up next to it and press the “X” button to open the crafting menu.

      I figured out how to use the workbench, but when I pull up the crafting menu it won’t let me make anything, even if I have gathered dozens of pieces of wood.

  4. I did not know about land bridges! Thank you.

    If roguelikes are your thing, there is also the Seven Day Roguelike Challenge which has racked up a large number of games & reviews. 
    and are the previous two years results.  This coming year’s compo will be the eighth.

  6. Watch out! Seemed like fun until I un-focused the game. Then it just said “Click to focus” and I never could get it to focus again. Using Mac OS X 10.6.8, Firefox 8.0.1, Java “1.6.0_29 from Apple Inc.”
