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

Nice game. Ship controls could be a bit more intuitive, and first person would be nice. Good job overall though!

couldn't understand the firing and where my screws were going.

Liked the plot / idea.. Found the game very hard. Possibly a bit hard to control.

I dig the idea of shooting your own screws !

Sweet graphics! I had difficulty aiming the screws. The fire sound was neat.

The sound is quite good. But tere are a lot of graphical glitches that kinda ruin the mood of the game. Its quite challenging and fun at first, but it quickly looses its charm. Good game overall

I had trouble getting the screws to fire correctly, not sure if I was doing something wrong. But I thought it is very pretty, and I like the idea

Controls were a bit iffy, but other than that it was pretty fun.

Operation I did not to proceed with difficult.
However, I liked the atmosphere!

the direction the screws went seemed to have very little relation to the orientation of the targeting box, it would benefit from a way to boost sideways so you could avoid the incoming fire and return fire at the same timw

Good game. But I await shrapnell screws not missiles. Amazing, you make 3d game in 2 days. Gameplay is difficult - too many enemies and average ship life 5-10 seconds. You're hardcore gamer. I can not take down first ship.

love the music. Was hard to tell where the shots were going after firing.

Idea is nice, liked the concept of going to the extremes to dismantle the spaceship to defeat enemies. However, controls are really hard, it's not easy to predict where the screws will hit.

graphics were pretty cool. Controls were a bit tough to understand, but otherwise, good entry. +1 on the audio...very immersive!

Screw aiming is a bit screwy, haha. Intuitively I expected the screws to fly in the direction of the crosshair, but it felt like they were going everywhere. Great job simulating a space battle environment in 48 hours!

not sure why i kept dying but i liked the mood!

Liked the game, though couldn't really play it: the screws go in the opposite direction of sight. Not sure if it's a bug or a feature, but it's misleading for sure

Always nice to see another 3d space game. well done, aiming did feel a bit weird, but is still very playable

The aiming was a bit off, and the gameplay was somewhat flat. Overall a pretty good entry though, and thumbs up for the whole 3d thing! :D

Fun entry. If you rotate 90 degrees you can fly sideways through the entire game with little difficulty. You might also want to fix the cross hairs, screws didn't even come close to the target. Great mood, nice graphics. Good job overall!

Great mood at the start, but I don't understand the unconventional weapon.

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.
