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

Man, that was really cool. There's something immensely satisfying about seeing your clones tear into each other.

The twist ending totally caught me off-guard.

Neat, but very hard to control. I like the freak outs

Neat idea. Was fun to do, and I liked them attacking each other, haha.
Kinda slow after you finished a level, but neat idea.

Your concept was fun and original, but I found a constant glitch that has me flying in to the air and then dying, with the "restart" button flying around like a madman. I had fun for the bit I got to play though!

Loved it. Cool mechanic, love the feel of the clonejump. love the clones going crazy and attacking eachother. I also like that you didnt make it so the clone coming out of the gun runs off, you become the new clone.

Great work.

Why are your former "yous" so angry? Nutrition issues? :D

Good game! Looks easy at a first glance but some parts of the map are hard to handle (that's good!).

Such a good idea and really funny, but controls are too hard

I like the chaotic effect when you spam the clone

This a cool but realy disturbing way of explaining how double jump work! The difficulty is realy progressive. The final level is hell, I would have liked some waypoints. The ending is crazy good! Good job!

And nice obstacle design. :)

This game is more fun than I thought it would be, haha. Well done!

Good game. The twist on the end though. hahahaha. well done. But the physics of the game needs to be adjusted. The movements is just too slippery. haha

Very nice gameplay

Nice concept and I like the over-the-top gore levels, especially when the view zooms back across the level at the end. THe controls need a bit love though.

I love the idea, this is a great entry with a funny ending ;)

Apart from buggy collisions, nice game! Liked how the clones went berserk and found the twist in the end pretty cool too :)

The idea is highly creative.
The gore definitely added a shock factor to the game.
Many clones have been murdered :D

Strange! Which version are you running? The webplayer one?

Floko says ...
Apr 23, 2015 @ 3:40pm

Nice ending :P
I like the mechanics,it's pretty creative,but I felt it only got challenging in the last level. The bad part is that it's really hard to predict the clone's movements and work around that. But it was still a neat idea and I had fun :)

I love the way it scans through the level you've just beaten. And the fountains of blood, of course.

Apr 27, 2015 @ 2:15pm

Fun game with interesting use of the clone idea. Found the last level quite difficult but the ending made it worth it. Also liked that when you completed a level it would go back over the level you completed. Thought that was a nice touch. Do think a skip button would help though for replayability cause you don't always want to watch the level again. Overall a really clever concept with a nice use of the theme.

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.
