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

Get Toasted

by MRvanderPants - Compo Entry

This is Get Toasted, where you have to survive as long as possible by using only a toaster. You can chuck your toaster to enemies, but you can knock their socks off with a critical piece of toast to the face. But beware, the toast takes a while until it’s fully toasted.

Countrols:
- Arrow keys to move
- X to throw your toaster
- C to shoot a critical piece of toast (note this takes a long time to charge up)
- R to restart

Note that this game was made just for the fun of it and should not be viewed with too high expectations :)

It's a bit difficult to get the controls (aiming is extremely difficult) But its a funny idea and I like the sound of the bees. Nice work!

Even if it was just made for the fun of it, I still think you did a really good job (: The controls are a bit confusing, but the art is really appealing. That along with the sound design made this a fun experience. Good job!

It was hard to use the toaster to hit some of the enemies and sometimes the toaster would get stuck in the tree trunks. I like the unconventional weapon you chose though, pretty funny!

this is a long way from the worst game I've played in this jam - in fact its well above average. Graphics look great, screen shake is awesome, audio is passable... I rather enjoyed it

I really wanted to see more gameplay, but the controls are really hard to work with. The toaster was a chore to use. The game also seemed to flip out every now and then, mostly when I jumped while the toaster was on the ground. But I liked the sounds, and the graphics do have a good charm to them. Still have no idea what those ground monsters were. The animations were nice, but got in the way of gameplay. For future reference, animations that effect the rate of gameplay should be limited in length, and preferably only be visual while the actual action is performed instantly.

Controls were awkward, bee sound effect got annoying very quickly and the bugs trapped me against the side of the level a few times... loved the visuals though :P

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.
