<h2>What is this though?</h2>
You know how <strong>ludumdare.com</strong> runs those <strong>Ludum Dare</strong> game jams? Well <strong>Jammer</strong> is everything else.<br />
<br />
So as the library of <strong>Ludum Dare</strong> related web projects I was working on grew in to a network, it made sense to take a step back, and consider giving the network itself an identity. The network itself is about growing what <strong>Ludum Dare</strong> does for you, the people that recreationally challenge themselves to make games. I decided to call it <strong>Jammer</strong>; Something everyone can spell (Ludlum), can say (lou-dumb dah-ray), and something that highlights that it's about the people that jam. So when the <strong>Ludum Dare</strong> website tells you to make a <strong>Jammer</strong> account, that is us telling you to make an account for the network. For <strong>Ludum Dare</strong>, and our <strong>future stuff</strong>.<br />

Game Jamming is a thing now. It's a culture, and a way of life. As it matures, to keep it moving forward, we need to do better by preserving and organizing that culture. Being the premier <strong>online</strong> jam, <strong>Ludum Dare</strong> has become the home of a <strong>huge</strong> community of makers from around the world. I'm extremely humbled by this. Despite our flaws, our ups and downs, you've stuck with us for nearly 15 years, and created many tens of thousands of games! This makes me feel that it's our responsibility to be spearheading this effort; Be part of the solution, the evolution, rather than just being <em>one more place</em> to jam on the internet. I'm not the best leader, and I've certainly made my mistakes, but I've been here this whole time. This is something I deeply care about, and though it may happen slowly, I'm seeing it through (whether we like it or not). 😉<br />

The first step is the new <strong>ludumdare.com</strong> (alpha testing on <strong><a href="https://ldjam.com">ldjam.com</a></strong>). The focus there is entirely on the main event. This here, <strong>jammer.vg</strong>, is the next step.<br />
