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

Brilliant game so far. Actually laughed out loud! The game play and dialogue is fluid and interesting. The theme is hilarious! When the character dies he says funny lines, my favourite being 'At least I had [insert unconventional weapon here]'.

excellent mood! Design and color changes to each level is cool too. Sounds gets pretty repetitive

The line of sight cone is a bit ordinary, but everything else in this game is fantastic. Fun theme and great visuals, story, setting.

This is brilliant! Awesome job with this game! :D

This is super impressive! I kept wanting to try after I died. That's the mark of a good game to me. If I am losing but want to keep playing, it is a good game.

Really great. Graphics are brilliant. Incredibly funny ... And an excellent use of the theme. Spot on. Got a bit repetitive, though that's completely understandable with the time limit ... Very well done !

Great job Nico! Slick,Stylish and very well executed as always!
I feel accomplished having had 2 enemies fight over the same cake.
I was hoping Agent Clepto would be more impressed with my skills at the end. :D

The graphics are great, it's hilarious, and the core stealth mechanic is really enjoyable. Great work all around!!

Excellent job. Moreover, we can add supplementary GP easyly (don't use cake / best time / etc...)

Fun, and it looks and sounds great. Very fluid.

Only bug I found was when I got stuck in the wall heading to the chest on the second level, which was kinda annoy as I had to restart. But the game was interesting enough that I wanted to, instead of just moving on. :)

Great entry - controls were smooth, and the art style is minimal but still manages to set the mood perfectly. The subtle reflections on the floor really sell it. And of course, the writing was the… icing on the cake. Sorry ;)

Love the pixel art, dialogue and the concept, although I can't see the base mechanic being expanded particularly beyond the scope of the current game. Sound effects are nice, but are let down a bit by the music simply because it's quite repetitive.

This is great, I really like how the unconventional weapon is used to help you in missions, so it's up to you when to use it - as opposed to "here is an obvious section where you need to use that thing". Graphics are great as well.

Very interesting stealthy mechanic. I like it.

Very clever and polish game all around. I can't find anything that wasn't amazing in this game! Well done!

The polish here is crazy. The audio, the graphics, the story, the humour, the mechanics. Just everything is great. One of the best I've played so far in LD32.

You can watch me get frustrated and fail a lot on my playthrough if you are into to that sort of thing, haha: http://www.twitch.tv/drathy/c/6585858

A very solid entry! Good take on the theme and the game itself felt really solid and finished. Well done!

very good game so far - really liked the style and mood of the game - but it was way to hard - some simpler levels to teach more of mechanics would be better - but understandable in the short time - great job

Fun game with really nice colour palette. Thought the design in this was great, from the title screen fonts to the look of the game. Did get stuck in the wall at one point and couldn't get back out so that was a bit annoying but once I restarted it didn't happen again. The dialogue is also nicely done and sets the scene well.

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.
