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

There's no link to your game, man. We can't play it!

Yeah, what plokdev said. The title screen looks cool, but all the links go to a page with no download.

Loved it loved it loved it lurved it loved it! Also, the music it is quite quite great! Also, enjoyed the filter-work/glitch-work. Also, can't seem to put it down.

This is the interactive cheeseburger music video experience they promised us in the 90's. So hype!

Lady Beardo said it perfectly.

Eh... it really didn't do anything for me to be honest. I understand a lot of work went into the music and presentation. But everything else felt... weak interactively.

Being flashed around with the different abstract cheeseburger imagery felt a bit underwhelming, just being an observer for the most part. I want to hold the cheeseburgers, toss them around, tear them apart, throw them in a pile and jump in.

Okay, I admit, it sounds a little odd... but I want to DO stuff with them. I want to be a part of this weird abstract cheeseburger world, not just an observer.

There's also not a great deal of variation in what is there. The single cheeseburger model is reused pretty heavily and looks a bit plain without tomato/lettuce. The landscapes were also pretty barren feeling.

The focus was obviously on the music, and it does excel and have a high quality parody feel to it. It's impressive considering the time constraints.

The overall presentation (cheeseburger models aside) was also pretty well done. The intro bit was polished and the colors scheme felt appropriate.

The rap sounds pretty legit, but needs a better backbeat. :P

This needs a trap remix.

Fun experience, would be amazing with a few gameplay mechanics and a failure state thrown in the mix.

Apr 25, 2015 @ 8:12am

Joe, I'm going to level with you. Ever since Murder Clown, I've been worried about your sanity. We all have, Joe. We just want you to be okay. But after this game we're very worried about you. Your obsession with cheeseburgers has gone too far - it has to stop.

Please call home so we know that you're okay, Joe.

The cheeseburgers must stop.

Sincerely,

Your parents

nice song but this is not a game so stop putting it into a GAME jam

Apr 25, 2015 @ 8:25am

I think it's mainly focus on music, and cool. But more things needed in gameplay part to make it more fun.
Overall, a nice try.

Errrm. What the f**k? That was very strange. I'm not sure what just happened to me. Why am I in McDonalds? Why am I eating a cheeseburger? Why am I

No idea why it isn't working for me, but it plays a tune and stops. It keeps crashing my browser (firefox).

So.. that happened :P
I get the adverbgames point, and all, and there were something about the mood you created- But there was no gameplay at all.

This was a neat interactive musical experience. Too bad it isn't a game, or having connection with the theme, but it's neat!
I wish there was something to do rather than cool effects and music and stuff. More trippyness would have worked well, or more variety. It's a little empty.
Great work!

Good music, and I liked the shaders.

diiq says ...
Apr 28, 2015 @ 11:53pm

Haha, it took a while before I realized it was interactive.

That was a cheeseburger experience, no doubt.

I wish the bun textures hadn't been tiled, and I wish the ending had been a little more climactic -- but otherwise, very entertaining!

Catwheel says ...
Apr 29, 2015 @ 4:23am

This was fun and cool. But it was kind of more of an interactive experience then a game.

Very funny, and very fun to be in the video! Awesome lyrics and music.

cool graphics

May 1, 2015 @ 1:43pm

Ok, so I'm cool with an interactive music video, but there's really should be more going on to make me actually want to move around in the scene. there really wasn't anything to visual different with me involved, I can just stand there and experience the same thing. as far as fitting the theme? well you're stretching that out thinner then a white castle burger.

I rode a cheeseburger. I've never typed that sentence before. Music and graphic were good, really fun mood. No weapon was unfortunate.

May 3, 2015 @ 1:54pm

I get the metaphor of advergames as a weapon. but as an advergame that had no gameplay, this was more an advert. Nice flow tho ;)

Randomness is strong with this one.

I can't play this because of the combination of no way to invert the mouse and high mouse sensitivty.

The thrilling digital cheezeburger experience that will save us all.

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.
