891 game makers agree: Playing videogames can be a lonely affair.

Ludum Dare, the contest that compels indie developers to churn out a game prototype in the span of 72 hours, has recorded a record number of 891 entries for its most recent competition. What has spurred so many game makers to throw their hats in the ring?

It seems the motivating factor was the theme of the contest: Alone. This means there are currently 891 games for you to play, in various stages of completion, all themed around the idea of being alone.

Just in time for the holidays!
