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

This game is surprisingly hard!
I wish the combat interface were a bit cleaner. It was hard to direct my guys. I know that they're drunk out of their minds, so it makes sense, but it didn't make the game very fun.

Honestly I just can't find out how to play it correctly. Despite the tutorials before each of levels it's really hard to understand.
But! I liked it, it relly looks like you put a lot of effort into it. Also the events are an interesting idea and pretty funny one.

agreed. it's quite hard to understand, and the game suprisingly got a deep mechanic in it, applause for that, and the artwork quite nice too

Fiendishly complicated and elaborate, I'm impressed. Very much a complete rogue-like. The combat was a little bit crazy from the start, I would have rather fought with each type of unit on its own before seeing the whole lot. My main gripe is the amounts of booze though. Great that it's metric, but an average swimming pool has less than 10 m3. I prefer to consume my alcohol in litres :)

Ok, the game seems easily exploitable with an high reputation, but sure i had some fun.

After understanding how to make those drunkyard move and attack others the way to the end was clear.

Finished it in about 20 minutes and the ending is pretty funny, a really good game :D

Very cute, pretty similar in writing to KoL

That was really interesting, and impressive how much has been fit into the whole game. It was a good move putting the tutorial in to explain everything, because there is a lot going on. Some of the text was cut off on the side of the screen.

Even with all of the explanation, I still found it pretty confusing but I'm sure I'd get the hang of it eventually.

Wow, it's impressive how many mechanics you've put in a game in just 72h! Too bad I couldn't find the One Vodka! :(

thoughts:
- In my first play-through, I needed to reduce upkeep... but is there actually a way? (They were only 1/3 drunk, and manpower can't go down?)
- An RTS in 3 days is pretty impressive.
- Who knew being drunk could be this hard... maybe you need to be it to play it? :-)

Well that's good and you had time for a rather good tutorial in such a short time. It still tooks me time to figure out how to manage those fight sequences but finally it was ok

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.
