Last week, Game Design instructor Chevy Ray Johnston wrote a post for Arcade telling us about Ludum Dare 26, the 48hr rapid game development competition, which took place over the weekend of April 26-29, 2013. The judging is still going on at the time of this post, but it will be completed around the end of May.
