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

Clever take on the theme... managing your timeline and blocking those haters! I like the chunky gameboy graphics too.

Cool retro look and sound, though I have no idea what the character (thing at the bottom of the screen) is.

You may want to mention that you have to click enemies in the game. I didn't realize that until my 3rd try. Is something supposed to happen when the number gets to 0? I just kept going into negative numbers, and nothing new was happening in the game.

Love the Gameboy style graphics.
Took a little while to realise I had to select the correct command and then click on the people. But makes sense once I worked that out.

Thanks for the comments.
@fluidvolt :D

@Zatyka My fault :) The game lacks a indication for the click :( I forget it. And the negative numbers... wow, It was not supposed occur, but congratulations, you finish the game.

@asobi_tech about the click /\, thanks for playing.

I like the gameboy graphics style! Unfortunately I feel this is not a complete game because of the negative score and the fact that I never had a need for the like button. Interesting take on the theme however.

really funny! :)
the audio is a bit stressful and I didn't understand the commands at first. Why can I move the ball? :D
anyway I'll put a good review, like the concept.

This was fun, I liked the swapping of 'weapons'.

Well done for sticking to actual 4 colour graphics and keeping the enemies sufficiently differentiated, though I did notice you broke pixel boundaries in places. ALMOST 100% retro.

Fun game to play and interesting take on the theme. Uncle joe never came after tuto though. Maybe it was a little too easy for the gameplay you have (i just died of boredom after a while). And the music is a bit awkward. But i's well crafted and engaging.

Your take on the theme was interesting, however the execution was not very fun. I enjoyed the graphical style and the pacing though, for what it's worth. Congrats on the entry!

I love the art style, with fitting music. The idea is really cool, although I would change the scenery to something resembling some sort of an actual timeline, but that's just me ,)
Great work!

Missed a game over screen! Love the graphics and audio but the game mechanics could use some improvement. If I move my character from the bench the enemies will usually get stuck there and the game will only procced after I "kill" them. Thanks for the entry!

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.
