Warrior is a one-button fighting game featuring a samurai, a knight, and a viking. The gameplay is intended to be clunky and ridiculous, featuring randomness, but in such a way that it doesn't impede skillful players.

The game is intended for two players, but an AI is included for single player mode. The difficulty of the AI is strange; mileage may vary.

You can use literally any button to play the game, including keyboard keys, mouse buttons, and game controller buttons. Playing with your friends is encouraged!

For platforms other than Windows, download LOVE 0.9.0 from and run the .love file using it. Possible Android port coming soon!

Thanks to Lafolie for help with the Mac OS X port!

Very neat idea, but very, very hard to master!

Wow... I was prepared for a tough challenge reading the comments... I had an easy time - against the AI. Not sure, if I'd also win against a human (since there might be a timeout :P)
Just charge your attack, and wait for the enemy to charge his attack... while it's charging, just release your own attack. I'm not sure about the attack range - but this strategy worked very well with the Knight ^_^

I died right away. "Vebjorn wins." Dammit, Vebjorn. This was really fun and a great game. Good job!

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


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.
