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

LIMBS
Daniel Clemons, A.K.A “The One Man Riot” is an Infamous criminal, known for single handedly causing some of the most brutal riots in recent history. With a record of 23 bloodbaths to his name,
His capture is of the highest priority.
All previous attempts have failed as he possesses Unnatural strengths and a tendency to use this Strength to rip the limbs off his enemies and Beat them to a pulp with them.
He has been tracked down to the small town of Shiverwood and the town has been surrounded
By riot officers and more back up is on the way.

How long can he survive against endless officers?

I'm... not so proud of this one to be entirely honest. It didn't really go where i wanted to go but i stuck with it anyway and ended up with this mess... I learned a lot of things a long the way though, so it was a learning experience! I hope you may enjoy!

Where's the "any" key?? :) It's pretty good, but I think some cops armed with pistols would have been a great addition, which would improve on several points. I like it :)

Nicely executed game, more variation would have been great though :)

The first time I tried to play the game the whole screen got engulfed in blood and after a minute or so the game slowed down to 0.1 fps. But that didn't happen on subsequent tries...

Anyway, nice entry, and fun game. Could indeed as others have pointed out could use a bit more variety.

I think you did very good on the feedback part. I agree that more variety could have helped, it got boring a little too fast.

Come other kind of cops would make an interresting turn, but nice game, good job!

I like how animated the game is. I think you proved yourself a capable designer :3

Nice! you should work more on this. With more violence. And house music. and hotlines.

It's playable enough, and I liked the destructible buildings. Having a severed arm vs. not having one doesn't change the gameplay a whole lot. The whole thing is just kind of needlessly gross.

Thought the limb attack was an interesting take on the theme. Liked that they broke down as you used them and that you could also use them as a projectile or close combat.

Are these supposed to be cops, or the Black Knight from Holy Grail!? ; P

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.
