When I joined the forum I wrote a post about video game music and I said that in order to compose for games you’d probably would want to look for game jams, events that makes game developers create small games in a given amount of time.
One of the game jams I specifically mentioned before was the Ludum Dare, probably world largest game jam.
Now… I’m writing to tell you that Ludum Dare 47 is almost up, it’ll start on October 2nd and will last for 48 hours (for people going solo) to 72 hours (for teams).
So… if you’re looking to try it out… this is probably the best time ever to find yourself a team and join forcers with programmers and artists to enter the Jam.
As for myself I decided that this time I’ll be entering solo in order to test myself to the extreme… but if you’re interested this is the link to the Ludum Dare website (atm it’s undergoing maintenance because they’re readying it for the event), you can probably find developers to team up with directly in there as soon as it’s working again.

The latest ludum dare had something like 5000 to 6000 different entries… every game will be rated in every specific aspect, music included. Getting an high score for your music can really give you some spotlight in the game developing “world”
Happy composing everyone
