Not gonna lie, Ludum Dare 35’s theme – Shapeshift – didn’t really appeal to me, and I fully expected this round to be… well, kinda less. One glance at its victors across the sixteen categories sure proved me wrong though, which is obviously not a bad thing! So while we wait for the 36th 48-72 hour craziness that will be Ludum Dare 36, why not peruse the cream of the crop from the most recent outing?
