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

Well that was adorable. I think a little background music would be nice, but I think this is the most original concept I've seen so far.

I really loved the simplicity of this game. Great work with environment. I could imagine being inside of a Dali's painting

I nice concept and good implementation I however had a bit of problem playing it beouse I wanted to blink with my right eye (I have OCD) but that does not have to bee something you need to change the game for just tought I should mention it.

hey dude I played your game and wrote about it here; http://pastebin.com/byfbeyJA really funny and unique concept, I also liked the 3d art quite a lot :)

This is a really interesting concept, but trying to find the last cube is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. I dunno if there's a corner I missed or if the cubes wander around aimlessly, but if the latter then the game might benefit from the cubes patrolling set paths.

Thanks for the feedback everyone! I agree that music would have been a very nice addition, unfortunately I'm not very good at audio :( Right eye winking was on my to-do list but I ran out of time sorry. The cubes only move when they can see you, so usually if there's one you can't find it'll stay put (but it may be moving around behind your back).

Glad I checked the game out, I thought from the thumbnail that this is an occulus rift game :D

Reminded me of an old schoolyard game from my childhood. Really nice and fun game, kudos.

Very fun hide-and-murder game! I felt all-powerful and unstoppable yet still stuck with a challenge. The environment was quite gray but super detailed! Wish I could wink with both eyes though, it feels a bit asymmetrical. Perfectionist talking here, though. It was great.

Really nice concept, but there is no challenge in the game if i'm not mistaken, you're just left wandering in the levels killing everything colored. Really neat idea !

Apr 21, 2015 @ 5:03pm

very cool idea! there wasnt much challenge tho :/ interesting environment too

Exactly what I wanted out of this theme. Good job.

Apr 22, 2015 @ 10:19pm

I love this idea, and it reminds me of an idea I worked on a while ago. If you continue on this game, I'd suggest letting us choose which eye we can blink.

Excellent.
The effect is really great and I had to look for those cubes. The use of colors was attractive to me
Thanks for this great game

I little more fluff in the form of visuals and audio and this would be truly awesome!

Idea with a great potential!

Ha, that was a really clever use of the theme. And a cool implementation of your idea! I would have loved some similarly ridiculous music to go along with your winking, but you did a great job even without it.

I liked looking at all the models in the environment. Common game objects used in a surreal way. Cool.

Really funny idea! It's a bit strange you can't blink with your right eye, but it doesn't make much difference. Great job!

Very simple concept but very unique, nice environment, I liked the giant gun! a music would be great !

very nice and innovative game. I really liked the idea of destroying boxes by blinking. sort of expressing the idea that not all games are about violence and killing.

Apr 29, 2015 @ 2:04pm

Well executed game. Liked the smoothness of the movement and the landscape you're placed in. The random objects in the space really give the game a unique feel. Would be nice if the eye blink was randomized from left to right.

Are there really 30 cubes? I found 29 and I've been looking for the last for 10 minutes. :(

Very original game idea! I like it!

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.
