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

KNIGHTS of the TURNTABLE

by Pomb - Jam Entry

A game about black knights, lances and riding wildly towards each other without fear of being decapitated, disemboweled or punched really hard.

Content is a little gorey, and is not for any individual who is offended by senseless violence.

Controls:
Tap your player assigned button (player 1: A, player 2: L) to build speed/power and to get your lance in the premium spot for decapitation.

Visit the breakdown screen in game to view the different win conditions.

Hahaha I have been sitting here laughing to myself like a crazy person. The gore, the dubstep, the slow-mo... It's beautiful. Great work you guys. Brilliant.

Hilarious slow-mo and dubstep, generally well-polished. Having a difficult time figuring out what I'm doing well to win or what I'm doing wrong to lose, however.

Guys, seriously, too gorgeous. Hands down the prettiest game I've seen so far.

But.

WHY NO DEPTH!? All this game is... Is seeing who bashes the button more???!!! I was expecting some kind of lance-tweaking mechanics and such.

But seriously, so much beautiful animation and juice in here, it's great.

Very well done with the time you had. Even time for polish! Only criticism (I personally preferred the lances without the punching gloves, due to how lethal those lances are. Though I understand that it was intended to add humor and to see the point clearer. Perhaps just a little Ludum Dare nostalgia from seeing it and enjoying it in its early version :P

The juice in this is second to none. Great work on that front. I love how you amass injuries - I lol'd at that.

The only thing I think is letting this down a bit is the mechanic. Your breakdown section doesn't really explain itself at all ;) I was there in person when this was created, so I know there is something about timing and being the last person to press at a particular point, but for the life of me I couldn't figure that out, even when playing against myself.

That being said for a game like this I think making it about who mashed the button the hardest/fastest is totally acceptable. ;)

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.
