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:


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

soundquake is a noise maker. Record and place your loudy weapons to offend your victim into the hole! Unfortunately, I haven't had a chance - got too lazy - to design more levels yet, so it ended up to be a rather playtoy than a game.

- Click & hold left mouse button to record a weapon by 'shouting', and release the button to place it wherever on the screen.
- Right mouse click any of your weapons to remove them.

You will need a microphone and possibly speakers/headphones to play.

Hope you enjoy!

The idea of using sound as a tool is amazing!

Really cool sound toy, love the art style, trying to be it's own thing, very different from a lot of the more conventional stuff people do.

That was incredibly fun! I enjoyed screaming into my mic to get the ball to drop :). It was a really innovative idea and great use of theme. Well done!

Pretty amazing once I realized that you had to speak in order to be able to do anything - I only wish that the 'weapons' you spawned were more visible.

Overall interesting concept, would like to see it grow into a full-fledged combat system!

Fun idea if not much really there.
Also I totally clicked the picture where it said click to start, haha.

really creative! liked the idea a lot. First time I clicked around like crazy and wondered why it did not work, then I actually read the description and recorded long iiaaaaahhhyyy sounds and got until level 5. then I quit as i think there is nothing waiting in level 100 but overall a refreshing entry!

Funny entry, but too repetitive x) But I really like it and I was able to make a good music with my voice and your voice box :D So, definitely a good game!

Holy shit I'm sorry but this game is amazing. I was just screaming into my microphone and when I let the mouse button go I got a surprise. Well done! Very innovative!

Even if there isn't too much to do, this is still pretty fun to play around with. It's cool to see the ways different types of sounds try to move around. I'd really like to see how this would have developed if you had more time to work on it~

Made whale noises. Tripped me out, hard.

I love this haha, it's a really cool concept, I'd love to turn it into a full fledged system, with different frequencies having different abilities. I might see if I can pick apart the code myself if you don't mind!

thanks all for the lovely feedback! :) glad to see people enjoying this yet ridiculous concept. there will hopefully be more to come soon enough!

@Bandersnatch sure thing, there isn't much on the audio analysis part in the code for now, but love to see what you come up with! and please excuse me if the code is way too messy to read. :)

One of the most creative uses of theme I've seen - interested to see where you could take this with more time.

Good idea, borring game

The concept is really cool. You need to work to more levels, or maybe other kind of sounds, who make different actions.
Can't wait to play and evolved version of this !

Great game idea to use the player's voice as a weapon! It was fun to make noises into my microphone and see the ball move and my "weapon" animated!
The graphics style was simple but effective. A bit more variety to the levels or some other obstacles and it would have been even more fun!
Most innovative idea I've played for this LD!

This game definitely needs levels and more gameplay options. Core idea is amazing and should be iterated upon, it's worth a try.

Really awesome idea. Would love to see more levels and content, but it's nice to overlay several lines and make tunes while pushing the ball around.

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 ( 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.
