Ludum Dare
Ludum Dare is a competition where developers must create a game from scratch in a couple of days, either working solo (for the 48 hour Compo) or as a team (for the 72 hour Jam). I've been a regular participant in Ludum Dare since I was 14, which has resulted in this portfolio of byte sized games.
