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

Apparently. I'm the worst stone fighter in the world. Epic music btw.

This game looked and sounded really good, I didnt get very far though because every time I pressed space the page scrolled down and I couldnt see the game any more =\ might just be me but I couldnt work out how to fix it.

One of my favorite games out of the ones I've seen so far. Simple, cathartic, and just challenging enough.

At the above commenter, you can also jump by pressing the "up" arrow.

Very interesting concept! Good job!

Nice game. Kept scrolling to the bottom when I hit the space bar. I should've looked at the comments addressing that issue. Good job!

Good use of lighting, I love the subtle way that the bricks and objects are lit from the correct direction.

I think you need to put margin:0px on the body of the webpage that is used in the Ludum Dare website because I got scroll bars around mine.

It’s a shame it is so short because I was still enjoying myself at the end.

While I love the procedurally generated map I did finish the game on a second play through by just holding Z and forwards and not taking my fingers off the buttons. I would love to see some level design in a future version that involved some puzzles with the bolder.

You got a good score from me.

Fun game. It's a cool idea and really fun to squish the bad guys with a stone, if a bit too easy to just run straight through. The game really slowed down towards the end of the level (not sure if that's just my ailing laptop though).

Good music and gorgeous lighting. The graphics have a nice bevelled look to them despite being (what I assume to be) just pixels. I wouldn't call a boulder an unconventional weapon though.
Randomisation is a good thing, and I also like how the character changes hue to show how damaged he is, though it can sometimes be hard to see in the dark.
If I were to improve it, I would allow the player to push the boulder while rolling it, so it out runs the player. I would also eliminate the use of the mouse in the menus. If I want another go, I would like to just slap the spacebar and start again, rather than reaching over to the mouse. But now I am nitpicking.

Fun little game, but the framerate was amazingly slow for such a simple game. If there was more then 2-3 enemies on the screen it started chugging.

Very cool game - quite challenging, full of inspiring feedback when you die, and has a fun and different central mechanic.

I'm the worst stone fighter in the world.
Great music, awesome game idea, well executed.
An HP bar could be useful.

Nice lighting effects and music. The game was too easy to finish by just holding right and x, but the mechanic has potential if the game had more features.

Cool game, I love the audio the most tho. ; )

I like the graphics, looks cool! @lamogui: I seem to be the worst stone fighter in the world, too ;-)

I liked the graphics! Normal maps make everything pretty awesome, eh :P Was a bit short but i needed some attempts until ive done it.

I really love the music and those graphics!
Its not that easy, though.

Is it just me or the sound effect and music stops after a while?

Great

Apr 21, 2015 @ 2:11pm

Really nice graphics! A simple mechanic but done well. Good job :D

Amazing music. Really helped me get into the game, even though i'm the worst. In the world. I'm also guessing this is HTML5 game, which runs terribly on Chrome (Google apparently hates online games?). Had to use Firefox.

Very cool! Love the weapon, I felt like Indiana Jones in reverse. The enemies flying apart looks great and is satisfying. Suggestion: The intro text passed too quickly for me to finish reading -- could possibly use a click mechanism.

I'm also the worst stone fighter ever ^^.
I think it's a good concept and it's funny.

Interesting mechanic, but would love to see some more elements on how to use it :)

I love the art style and the lighting. Some of the best graphics I've seen so far. The gameplay is simple but challenging and the music is great.

This perfectly exemplifies the kind of game I was hoping to play when this theme was picked. So good!

Apr 22, 2015 @ 1:52pm

Love the music, nice simple mechanic and good use of the theme!

Great music, but every time I pressed the space, the page scrolled down and disrupted my gameplay :(

Another HTML5 game, nice! I think it is the best format for Ludum Dare, the game just run. The game is challenging and an interesting concept. The music is well done!

Rock and roll :D Good idea to smash them up with a stone and I btw also like the lighting in game. Simple and still enjoyable game.

Nice pixel art and music. I'm missing a HP bar or something.

Good music. I liked the style, and the enemy death animations.

I had no idea what I was doing at first and had to restart. I had no idea if I was getting hurt or not. A bit too incomplete to be enjoyable.

The lighting and random generation here is amazing! Really good work! I cracked up at the "You are the worst stone fighter in the world." I had a lot of fun when I streamed this on Twitch: http://www.twitch.tv/drathy/c/6585853

I like the music and normal mapped lighting. Nice work! One thing i don't like is lagging on my computer (but it's quite slow)

Pretty fun, though I think a health bar is in order

Sounds good. Graphics are okay. When jump, page scrolled down, making it difficult to control.

AinoraZ says ...
Apr 24, 2015 @ 12:09pm

Game idea was pretty good, but unplayable because the page scrolls up and down whenever I try something. Still, looked like a pretty cool game!

BIZM says ...
Apr 24, 2015 @ 5:54pm

Cool concept! Kudos on the lighting, it really helps set the mood, as does the intense music. Adding a description of the controls in the description above the download links will help people out. You should also mention that the up key can be used as an alternative to the space key for jumping.

rnlf says ...
Apr 24, 2015 @ 6:27pm

First I tried to play with some tactics, but that made me the worst stone fighter in the world (good idea to be mean to your players == voters, btw ;-)), then I just pushed the stone forward without stopping and made it to the princess.

The idea is great, the music is awesome and the lighting effects are nice to look at! Just the level design might need some tweaking to make better use of the idea. Good entry!

Excellent gibs :) I did find myself wishing I could walk/roll on the ball.. Great job!

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.
