Welcome to Rotherfield Peppard

by dtap - Jam Entry

we're sorry :(

You play as Mr. Peppard of Rotherfield Peppard, a small village in the woods. Today, your arch nemesis has decided to do away with you once and for all, and is unleashing wave after wave of short-lived biomechanical contraptions upon your home! Use your tools to protect your house from destruction.

Remember: these monsters may only last ten seconds, but they pack enough of a punch to more than make up for it!

Unfinished, unfortunately, though you CAN win with the turrets :)

Apologies to those members of the team whose work went largely unused. I've uploaded the assets they created so that you can see all the hard work they did!

HTML5/Javascript and Pixi.JS.

You windows and web link both lead to a GitHub page. I can't play your game now :( (I don't have any idea how to put the sources together :P)

If you put your game on a 'gh-pages' branch, github-pages (google it) will host the game for you and people will be able to play it just by clicking on the link. See my entry for this.

It seems this game wasn't finished? Can't seem to do much except put down turrets.

Interesting game, though we can only put out turrets! I featured it in my Ludum Dare 27 video compilation series, if you'd like to check it out,

Yeah turrets only unfortunately, we ran up against time pressure and had to decide between getting the UI working and implementing the other weapons :(

I like the idea and the implementation. Not sure how to use acid spray and walls - the buttons don't do anything for me

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
