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

Wash It

by LukuluK - Jam Entry

Wash It is an action-infiltration game. You control a cleaner, who has to overcome the adversity with a brush and soap!

Controls:
=====================
ASDW: Move
E: Activate
P: Sweep violently
SPACE: Throw water (when you have)
SHIFT: Sprint
=====================
Tips if you are stuck:
- Sprint in a puddle of water to slide.
- Doors with a pink bubble have to be opened by sliding through them.
- You can only beat big enemies by stunning them with a puddle and then grab them (E) and clean them (P).
- small enemies spawn dust piles on which cleaned big enemies become dirty again.
- When big enemies follow you running, if they encounter a puddle they will slide and be stunned for a longer time against the first obstacle they encounter.
=====================

We were 5 People: 1 Developer, 1 Game Designer, 1 Graphist, 1 Guitarist, 1 Sound Designer.

We apologize for the lack of assets, the computer of our graphist perished at the wrong moment ^^

I thought it looked good, despite your computer problems. The music was really great! (I love that you had a specific 'guitarist' role on the team :D) One of the green (unlocked) doors wouldn't open for me after a while, but I enjoyed what I saw, thanks.

The idea is really good. And if you gets the graphic part into the game, then i belive you will have a really good game.

Reminded me much of mario with the music and the type of puzzles! Good work! Fun to play!

This is a good game. I like the idea of cleaning as a weapon and the levels are fun to play and creative. One minor problem is the player's graphics, it might just be me, but it bothers me to see the player entirely blue. 5 / 5 theme.

I'm a little confused for why I have to pick an enemy up in order to clean them. It cannot show me picking up an enemy so it me wondered if I did that step or not. Only way is by pressing P a few times.
Very fun game. Got a thrill for sliding and going through many doors with the slide.

Got stuck infinitely cleaning a stunned enemy. I couldn't restart level or break the cycle. Still good game though.

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.
