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:


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

Nasal Defense Force 2033

by MrShoestore - Jam Entry

The year is 2033... well actually 2015, but never the less our nostrils are in peril from imaginable foes lurking deep within the cave entrance. Your only weapon to remove these fowl barricades is the mighty Index.

Controls -

Use Mouse for Mouse-stuff

Created by Shudda Hadda Lotta Fun Studios:

Design/Audio/Music - Alexander Schuster
Art... well some art... - Mikhail Delinois

This was a tough jam because both of us were SUPER busy, and in Mikhail's case also SUPER sick. But we got something done, and that is always good. Thanks for playing!

*Spoiler Alert* -
The brain part is the end... there is nothing past it. The game becomes basically a stupid interactive toy at that point. If you wanna replay the game you have to restart it/refresh your browser. Otherwise, good job making it to the end! (yea, we know it wasn't hard.)

I sort of actually gagged for a little bit once I realized what the game was. Gross! I actually didn't finish it for this reason... sorry D:

Hilarious concept. Makes me wonder how many people actually have lego bricks lodged up their noses, lol.

Apr 22, 2015 @ 6:00am

I'm glad that I didn't close game in firsts seconds of gameplay. That was disguisting. But further I found the interesting thing. But still don't understand was there are finish or I need to do something special.

Holy. The end. Is sooooooooooo amazing. Great work on the graphics and menu. Seemed like it was very hard to lose, maybe ramp up the challenge a bit? This is definitely the funniest game I have played this jam.

That title. Like the graphics. Like the humor. I like this game but I don't know why.

Well this was.. peculiar :p. I don't know if actually hurting spikes was a problem, because i was suuuuper bad but I eventually got to the brain anyways. Played around a bit with it but wasn't sure if there was a goal or something special to do ^^

great concept. like the humor

Apr 26, 2015 @ 8:08am

This game is very funny, but not very realistic.

For instance, when I stick thumb tacks up my nose, I have to go to the hospital. So not very immersive.

Would recommend.

Fun, gross concept. Difficulty could be ramped up a bit. good job

Apr 27, 2015 @ 1:44am

Kinda fun, but also kinda gross <<;

Ha, that was hilarious! I enjoyed the nostril clearing journey. Once I got to the brain I was a little lost as to what I'm supposed to do, but I think I was able to affect different parts of the brain by picking at it. At one point, the screen turned black and white LOL. Kudos!

The gameplay gets repetitive pretty fast. Maybe if you added a highscore for how far you got. Laughed my head off though :)

Nice end, but did I really had to click on things all the way through there?
And arrived at the brain part, first I didn't figure that I could turn around it.

I don't know which I should be more worried about: The amount of junk stuck up this guy's nose or his ridiculously long index fingers. The end part is pretty trippy though.

The brain bit was great fun. I'd have been happy with just that part. Art and audio are cool too. Good stuff.

Nice entry :) I really enjoyed the end screen with the brain. Squeezing the visual cortex really changes the visual style => awesome

>_< this.
Well, speaking about mechanics - I realy would like to have some sort of scores or "lifes" on the screen, it could add more fun to the game.

Very original concept. I'm not sure how anyone could stuff all of that junk up their nose.

May 8, 2015 @ 10:59pm

Gross! Nice graphics though.

Great job! Good graphics, fun and gross concepts kkk
Got a bit lost in the end... Do I have to do something or just keep scratching my brain?

May 11, 2015 @ 4:43am

I'm a little confused about the wisdom of leaving a thumb tack up my nose to avoid damaging my finger...

I didn't reach the end because I didn't know there was one I was looking for. A progress indicator would have helped.

Sound effects and music were spot on.

Didn't reach the end because I wasn't exactly sure what I was supposed to be doing. It didn't seem like I could die either. Could be an interesting runner style game if you provided some more information.

Interesting concept, art looks great and audio fit nicely. Great effort seeing as you were both busy AND ill! Good job guys - gross! :D

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 ( 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.
