My First Ludum Dare – A Fun Game Jam

Ludum dare you say? You don’t know what it is? That’s a jam where many game developers around the world join and make games in 48/72 hours.

This was my first time to join and I am so happy about it. You can see my entry here. This zip contains an exe file for windows, an apk for android, and a jar for other platforms. You can open the jar by double clicking or opening it with java from the terminal (java -jar OktumBoktum_Desktop.jar).

You can play the game online as well. Give it a shot?

I used the super fast framework called libGDX.


What have I learned and why I think all game developers should join:

I have been making a game for quite some time as you see it in this site’s homepage. I don’t have a lot of time to put into it. Then I joined ludum dare 26. I was able to make a simple yet quite addictive game in less than 21 hours from scratch. This includes sound, music, graphics, designing, and everything else. This means we developers just need a good push, some good reasons to motivate ourselves. That’s all we need.

So next time, I urge you to join. You know why? Because time is short and this is our type of fun!


  1. Hi Sajal,
    I found you via Stackoverflow. I was wondering if you would be interested in doing a small partnership to promote the upcoming Samsung Smart App Challenge. We need guys that know about Android Apps on Stackoverflow. So if you are interested please email me

  2. Could you please send me the android zip file.
