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

Phantom Run

by Biliogadafr - Compo Entry

Make your way through this.... hmm... secret base I guess. Fight with enemies, bugs and stupid AI. Good luck.

This is my fisrt experience with godot game engine. Also Inkscape and Gimp was used to create some graphics.

I enjoyed this! The AI was indeed a bit dim but it was definitely fun teleporting past enemies then hacking them. Cool concept. Nice ending too :P

Nice game with interesting mechanics :) (Although it all came down to rushing to the enemy and hacking it.)

Great game, i enjoyed playing it. I only think that hacking (LMB) is little op, you should make it to have limited number of uses.

Looks really nice!
Gameplay needs some tweaks, but nothing big. It's fun as is, though halfway through I figured out the best way to win was simply to teleport past everyone

Some sounds/music would've helped, and possibly some way to regain health.

Either way, good game!

Great game!
I attempted to build myself an army a few times but died every time ... then I just ran through dodging all the bullets to the ending :D

Thanks for feedback. Maybe I will be able to overcome some bugs and make AI work as expected :).

It was really fun, congratullations.
Interesting gameplay, good graphics and fits good with the theme.
Oh! the enemy! let´s push a hacked one so he can get the bullets while I go on his back.
This has potential.

I like how bullets can hit each other, it's a very nice touch! Felt a bit short, and I wished I could teleport through walls.

I enjoyed the mechanics of this game. It was simple enough to understand, and it was fun. Maybe if you could teleport through walls you'd have even more level design options.

The concept of hacking enemies + teleporting is really nice, but I think you need to put some limitations on hacking and teleporting. Or else finishing the game only by teleporting is totally possible.

BTW, nice work using Godot! It was one of the engines I wanted to try using, but didn't :P

The UI is pretty stupid, no question about it, but the idea behind the game is fun and the teleportation works wonders!
I liked it and will play the post LD version as soon as the judging ends!
Thank you for such a great job!

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.
