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

Meggaggun

by Gaeel - Compo Entry

"I'm not paying attention to what I'm firing, I'm just trying to shoot everything." - Sydan

"Blew myself up with a grenade before running into any enemies. 10/10" - Phobos001


Meggaggun is about a gun that can fire all the ammo.

Use WASD or ZQSD keys to move and your mouse to aim. Hold down the left mouse button to fire.

The Meggaggun as integrated infini-pistol, so you don't need to worry about running out of ammo.

The Meggaggun can also carry and fire minigun, rocket, grenade and laser ammo, when you hold the trigger, all available ordnance will be used.

It's really just an exercise in loud and boomy. I ran out of time so there isn't much to do beside kill dudes.

Bugfixes:
- Slight weapon rebalance, AI fix and grenade texture fix.

I see the source code, but how do I play it?
'Windows' just links to the source code again...

Fixed broken Windows link, thanks Iak for pointing it out!

(That's what happens when it's 3am and you didn't sleep well the night before)

Not my kind of game+ i can't enjoy it on my laptop because I can't use trackpad+press on keyboard but I must admit it's really well done. I like that you can't choose your weapon.

Fun addictive shooter which definitely highlighted the best bits of loud and boomy.

Very nice. A game where I don't have to select what bullets to use but can just use ALL OF THEM AT ONCE. Lovely 'splosion effects!

Really fun to play! I love the retro style. The mechanic doesn't feel hugely useful though as mostly I'm not paying attention to what I'm firing, I'm just trying to shoot everything.

Blew myself up with a grenade before running into any enemies.

10/10

I like that when you die. You don't stand up or respawn. Which is quite obvious. Because you're dead... Also, it it won't fade out. But I mean, that's quite obvious too because when someone dies, will they shut their eyes? Probably not.

I'm really impressed with the way the gun moves and feels. Not a super creative idea, but you managed to capture that sweet retro feeling in the controls that most fps'es today can't even touch. Would love to see a fully fleshed out level =)

I could just feel the doom oozing out of it, the music was rad too. I think there may have been just a tad too many effects but other than that I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Some of the best graphics I've seen so far and solid gameplay!

I really enjoyed the old school graphics and the feel of the gun! I'm a sucker for shooters, but this one really grabbed me. Well done!

Really fun, interesting art style. Quite funny in a way, too.

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.
