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

I didn't finish it in time, but here's what I got done during the compo. An adventure game set in the future, or at least the beginnings of it!

Looks and sounds great! I managed to get to the bar, but that's about it, so I wasn't able to get as immersed as I had hoped. I enjoyed the rain effect though, that was a really nice touch. Hope you keep working on this! I'd love to see a more fleshed out version of this :)

It's a shame you couldnt finish in time because its looking really good! The graphics and the audio sets a really dark mood.

I love the style you're doing for the game. I really hope you continue working on it.

I would've liked it if it was controllable completely by XBOX controller.

I saw pixel-art and first-person and initially thought "Minecraft lookalike" but the art and atmosphere is a level up! Hope you really do finish it; I'd love to know what kind of story you had in mind.

Love the music! Hope your able to finish it!

Apr 25, 2015 @ 10:27am

Sad this isn't finished, I was really getting into it! Really love the look and the sound really REALLY adds a lot to the experience.

I became so sad when the Clone told me the cold truth. :( Loved the atmosphere and I hope you continue working on this.

Great blade-runner-esque city design, love your graphics and lighting. Music adds to the atmosphere.

My computer is too slow for this game I think :) Really like the mood and graphics. Blade runner inspiration?

Really nice. Even if there's not much gameplay, it's still an impressive amount of content for 48 hours. The art and music came together really nicely - great atmosphere, definitely the type of environment you want to explore and get lost in.

I felt that the outside part was the strongest (because of the aforementioned exploration / getting lost feeling), so I hope it will be more expansive if you end up finishing it.

Looking forward to seeing more!

Thanks everybody for the wonderful feedback! Hopefully I can squeeze in some time to finish the story.

Love pixel graphics, music was very pleasant.

May 5, 2015 @ 7:24pm

Very interesting mood and feel. Like many of the other commentors, I do wish that there had been more. I was feeling myself get immersed in the world, even in its unfinished state.

The lighting on the huge pixels look great, especially with the use of surface materials like this! This is certainly an artstyle I'd like to see more of! :)
I really like the music as well, it ties it all together very nicely!
Very good stuff, for what it is! :)

Great atmosphere! I managed to get on the bar counter, but I could not find the button to dance :)

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.
