The results are in for Ludum Dare 21, the competition which tasks designers with building a game from scratch over a weekend. These have always been a great inspiration for pushing people to their creative limits, and the games to come out of the events are free entertainment for the rest of us.
For this installment, the theme was “Escape.” Many of the entries aren’t 2D platformers with deliberately basic graphics, which is a pleasant surprise. That said, there’s always room in my heart for those, too. Besides the top few winners, I’d recommend playing Stratus (pictured above).
Hell, play as many of ’em as you have time for.
