Ludum Dare 32 — April 17th-20th, 2015 — Theme: An Unconventional Weapon

chromenopePSA: As of Chrome 42 (Released April 14th), NPAPI plugins are disabled by default! That means Unity Player, Java, and Silverlight games will not work in the Chrome browser! That said, Flash in the Chrome browser continues to work fine (PPAPI).

To Developers: Consider using HTML5 and WebGL instead. Having troubles with the export? Don’t worry. See Ports below.

To Players: A workaround is to enable NPAPI plugins in your Chrome settings. Click or Copy+Paste this URL in to a tab:

chrome://flags/#enable-npapi

As of September 2015 however, this option will no longer be available.

Other browsers (Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari) and Flash are unaffected, but FWIW there is no Unity Player or Silverlight for Linux.X

Interesting game, everything was so unconnected feeling though. I liked the storyline however but I feel like there could be more play time.

I was surprised at how cinematic this was, so to speak. It wasn't a very polished game but I really felt like you tried to tell a story and didn't let anything intimidate you: cutscenes, and camera panning, moving back and forth across changing levels, programming in car chases, etc.
This made me smile. Good job.

I liked what this was shaping up to be, but it seemed to cut short very abruptly. I suppose that was due to time restrictions. But otherwise, nice game.

I like how you tell a story through the gameplay. That is hard to do, but you clear have some talent for it. I actually felt a small amount of emotion at a couple moments. Right in the feels, ya know?

I am not sure I won, but I really like that you packed so many different kinds of gameplay in here + big +plus+ for the love story :)

Very short and an abrupt ending, but actually quite enjoyable. The graphics were nice, and the sudden car chase part made me burt out laughing. Nice work :)

Based on the first screen, I assumed I wouldn't like it. Was pleasantly surprised by the story and simple/silly gameplay. Ended up liking it.

Nicely done. Great job putting some variation in the gameplay. The car chase was great. Your animations are and graphics are pretty funny. The jumping controls need some work.

Hilarious storyline. It's a bit short, but besides that, good job!

Almost all the mood is in the graphic part... and in the banana, of course. Having 2 days to complete a game I think that chasing the mood is the right decision. Great work!

Go banana power! Quite a nice game!

Nice working making a complete game. Seemed a bit disconnected, but I thought you did a good job of telling a little story. I think if you had focused on one mechanic (stealth platformer?) instead of adding in the car chase scene, you might have had more time to polish. Congrats on submitting!

Even though it's a simple and short game, I had a big smile on my face the entire time. Good job!

It felt a bit disjointed but I enjoyed the storyline idea. Could have done with some more game-play to go with the rescue plot.

Apr 22, 2015 @ 8:57pm

man, I like the way they jump! :D

Haha, funny little game. Catches the game jam spirit very well :D

It was exciting although I had no idea what's really going on. The sfx really helped I'm glad you had time to do those.

It was a bit easy/not really much challenge once you realized you had to duck.

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
