A two-hour jam to celebrate ten years of Glorious Trainwrecks!

Bodies freak 'finnthesubhuman', and they want you to make games that exploit their fear.
Spend some time making something in response to another game you've liked.
Ludum Dare alternate event, focused on designing games for 'retro' hardward and operating systems. So that means stuff like Klik & Play is also welcome! And of course there are plenty of other game making tools made for older OSes and PCs like the Amiga and stuff.
An anything-goes event for making quick games during the Games Done Quick events.
Itch-based game jam for making quick, simple games. Certainly seems welcoming to people who've never made a game. Rules are flexible, encourages you to hand-make things.
