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

BoozeHound

by Havacore - Compo Entry

My second LudumDare, and again just my second time using Unity to finish something. You play as a guy who uses his drunkenness to fight pirates. Drinking whisky gives you the ability to fight, and drinking rum lets you breath fire (that stuff burns man!).

Controls:
Space to Jump and start the game
WASD to move
Right shift or left click to do your booze action

Tools I used:

Engine - Unity5
Graphics - Pyxel
SoundFX - sfxr
Music - http://www.abundant-music.com/
LevelEditor - Tiled with Tiled2Unity

Nice job, I liked the fire booze

It's starting to look like alcohol was a popular choice for unconventional weapon. I couldn't be happier that this is the case.

This game is simple and sweet. It's too bad you didn't get more use out of the different alcohol types, but I really like that you had a proper puzzle in there. Mostly it looks like you just needed more time to add more content.

Cheers!

Aw man, that win screen kind of bummed me out. Was hoping to get a glimpse of the pirate downing that giant jug of booze. Anyway, the game is really fun! I like the different mechanics of the two weapons-- it keeps things interesting. The puzzles weren't very hard but you did a nice job clueing the player into how to solve them. Graphics are short and to the point-- love the blood splatters. Very fitting music too!

I agree this is a proper puzzle and it fits the theme pretty well. I don't drink alcohol but those descriptions are really funny .

It started with a giggle, and then it was a fun game as well! The controls felt a little clunky in places, and the BoozeHound felt a bit floaty, but it all worked.

Nice take on the theme, you pushed it to its limits! Nice work, and good job on finishing it out!

Awesome game dude! I loved the retro feel of the audio and the graphics :) Overall really fun and creative!

I liked the "bleeding" ropes :) I think the fireballs should do more damage than the punches; although, maybe me getting the fireball coincided with tougher enemies with more health--dunno.

Fun game - I liked the burning rope puzzle - good job on it, as a unity newcomer, you did well.

Nice entry, great overall aesthetic, pirates, booze, pixel art, and your audio go well together. Good amount of polish as well. Would have liked some more variety, but great job for 48 hours.

Great game, thought the gameplay was simple and sweet. Also, loved the variation of weapons, and not to mention, the highly fitting music! Graphics were great, quite the pixel art! Overall, I would say this was a solid game with an addictive and fun gameplay. Great job, and good luck in the competition!

It's a nice game overall! It's pretty simple and the concept isn't very original, but I had fun playing it and that the most important!
Nice job! :D

I really enjoyed this game. Fun to play, crates were a nice addition, as well as the other mechanics. Great Job !

With the way the animations looked I liked to picture pirates running around on their tiptoes. Very fun game.

Apr 21, 2015 @ 2:04am

First thought (as I read the first couple words) was Drunken Master then it really was pirates and then raptors. Loved it!

Would have liked a button or ESC menu to exit the game.

That was a HUGE bottle of liqueur at the end :-)

Great job!

Apr 21, 2015 @ 4:14am

Crates, ladders, punching, pirates, fire balls and a decent sea shanty this game has it all. The end was abrupt but its certainly an ending none the less. I enjoyed the game. Its just the right level of difficulty and it was fun to play through.

Cool game, controls were OK, music got a little repetitive, I liked the crates mechanic. It lacked a bit of "Arr" though ;)

Nice game for your 2nd try, I did get stuck with the crates not being tall enough to get to the rest of the ship. Extra matches and rum for bigger fireballs, yarrr!

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.
