Game Environment Art Challenge

The Mix’s Game Art Challenge theme is Original Spin, it is meant to challenge artists to take something from their past and put their own spin on it, make it interesting. We want them to exaggerate the past and draw us into a new world that we’ve never seen before.

To enter, artists need to create a concept scene based off of their favorite memory or place, something that has a special meaning to them. Everything created must be original and created during the challenge.

There are two categories - Concept (which ends on the 14th), and 3D (which ends June 2nd). Again, check out the official site for all the rules and such.

Ludum Dare 42

Ludum Dare 42 is coming up! Ludum Dare is one of the biggest and longest running online jams in the world. It brings out a ton of amazing talent to spend a weekend making games and having a good time!

Ludum Dare has 2 formats:

Compo which is solo, 48 hours and everything for your game (except fonts) must be made during the jam time by you. It's considered hard mode, although it is the original rules for LD.

Jam which is with teams, 72 hours and anything goes concerning what assets you can use. The only restriction is that you can't have started making the game before the jam time.

Ludum Dare is a lot of fun and definitely worth checking out if you're looking for a large, competitive jam.

More info can be found on the Ludum Dare website.
