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

The Tiny World of Potatoes

by marccspro - Compo Entry

You have to find as many potatoes as you can as well as escaping !
You are able to craft weapons with the food you find.

Don't abuse with potato grenades cause you need those potatoes :p

Note: Craft a weapon as soon as the game starts or you will die ^^
You need a weapon to defend yourself.

How to craft:
Add the food you want then click Craft and it will add the weapon to the inventory bellow. Use the mouse wheel or (123456) to select the slot you want.
You can have multiple weapons ;)

/!\ All textures are mad by me ! None of them are from Minecraft /!\

Controls:
----------------------------------
SQZD or WASD or Arrows to move
E to open inventory
G to thow grenade
SPACE to fight
----------------------------------

How do the controls work?

It looks like a fun game! However for me the controls were QZDS so was really awkward to play.

Yo dude you gotta make yourself a weapon right quick or you're gonna get merc'd, these Potatoes are real!

I've enjoyed my time with it, but I take it as a "run away from the beast and don't get touched" as I didn't understand the craft system. The potatoes grenade where clear, as the potion, but my steak sword, I was not able to hit with :(

Anyway I liked the design of the monster

I don't understand the crafting system

Ha i really like this idea, food as weapon and game forces you to keep making new weapons from fallen enemies :D, potato grenade is just fun to use. i like graphics but sometimes you can't see enemy if you are in "horizontal tunnel/corridor".

This violates compo rules. You can't use Minecraft textures in compo games. You have to create all assets during the 48 hours by yourself. Other than that, I liked the crafting system. Gameplay was fun, but could use some improvements.

I have alot like the game, is a pity that no monster indicator when you do not just see behind the wall, or you find yourself face to face.

Fun game, the graphics look really nice. You want to make sure that your menu is triggered by the key being pressed DOWN, rather than checking the state of the key itself, as the menu sometimes closes as soon as you open it.

A bit hard to handle at first. Sounds are noisy and fighting gameplay is difficult. That said, it works fine. :)

Good game, but hard to control!

Overall a great game! It was really enjoyable! Very impressive for a game made in 48 hours.

It's fun and definitely an unconventional weapon. My only issue is that sometimes I don't see the enemies because of the perspective.
(I hit more than 6k FPS, so good optimization)

Good idea and feedback. But there is two things a bit annoying : the sounds are noisy and we can't always see the enemies. But this is a good game.

Apr 21, 2015 @ 1:39pm

The warning about finding a weapon straight away was a good one cause I was killed quite quickly the first time I played.

Great unconventional weapon.
Good fun to play.
Audio is a bit over whelming at times.

Franchement Marc c'était un live excellent pour un résultat exceptionnel !

Nice little game, sometimes it's annoying that the walls hide important items and enemies. It's sometimes hard to see whats happening. It's a quite complete game though. Like! :)

Really interesting, an excellent job for 48h! Definitely a dungeon crawler feel. On the downsides, I'm a little disappointed that all the weapons feel the same, and the combat is a bit blurry, as in you don't know if you will hit/be hit.
Otherwise, very coherent art, nice atmosphere, appropriate sounds.

Et le coucou d'un autre frenchie =)

Pretty nice entry as a gamejam game and it was relatively fun to play. Textures worked great :) Controls maybe too difficult.

I have no idea how to craft something but concept of crafting weapons from food looks promising! Game looks really good :)

The game sets a pretty desperate and dark vibe. It was easy to get jumped by the little killer bunnies or whatever the monsters were. The controls seemed unresponsive at times, I'd hit the G key, but nothing would happen, and this game moves so quickly!

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.
