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

Railer Defenso

by ItsSacraficed - Compo Entry


Rainer Defenso is a sort of defense game, you need to kill the monsters before they go past you, if they go past you you lose a life, if you kill them you get money, after each wave a shop will appear and you can upgrade/buy some things, then when you hit the next round button the game will start a new round including more mob and eventually harder mobs.

Controls :
Arrow Up and Down to move,
Spacebar to Shoot,
M to mute sounds.

This is my 8th Ludum Dare Compo Entry and my 9th LD website entry :).

Errors :
if you get a msvc (or a missing .dll like that), try the included redist installer.

It's pretty neat idea combining shooter and cookie clicker.

I can't seam to figure out just what the Unconventional Weapon is. Otherwise I would recomend you should use art for the enemy that is the same size as thair hit box or make thir hitbox the same size as their art.

The health upgrades are expensive!

The upgrades scaled in cost pretty steeply. The earlier game was more about precision and resource management and later waves were more about just covering the field with ammo. Perhaps something like a speed upgrade could have made the progression a bit more dynamic/interesting.

Overall a fun experience for a few playthroughs.

Nice idea, a little redundant , but it was cool while it lasted.

Well, a game that depends on how fast you can mash is never a very good idea, but I've spent quite a bit of time playing it, so guess it worked > . <... Anyways, didn't really understand what I was shooting because of the graphics. Managed to make it to round 15. Pretty addicting. Good job!

Wasn't able to launch the game. It says "MSVCR110.dll is missing"

More fun than I though it would be. Maybe the weapon upgrade and life cost is a bit high.

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.
