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

A Hot Mess

by Jacksendary - Jam Entry

Hey 3. Ludum Dare I participate in and for the first time with a friend of mine. we have been 3 people to develop this game.

The original Idea for the theme was smells as that is rarely used as weapons and the game fast escalated in fart jokes, which this game is all about, FARTING AT PEOPLE!


HOW TO PLAY:

The game is sort of a bullet hell game where you need to shoot people that are stealing your stuff down.

you control with WASD, and the mouse, full screen is recommended, but the game have ONLY been tested on screens with 16:9 Aspect ratio so anything else may give GUI bugs.

You win by shooting down all the enemies including thier bases (white squares). and you lose if the enemies steal everything in your stash.


Additional Info:

Please note if the web player doesn't work for chrome users please go to this address and enable npapi: chrome://flags/#enable-npapi

At first I didn't understand that you can walk with a wasd. But then I gave it a second chance and it turned really interesting to play!
Kinda gross scenario, but you played it well with the different "weapons".
Liked it!

I love the music and the art style, although the background coul've been a little more interesting. I like all the different weapons. I know I've said it already but I really like the music. On a side note, it would have been nice if the cursor was locked to the screen, because I sometimes clicked and my 2nd monitor and then the game minimized.

Lol. Movement confused me a little in the start since it does not walk in the direction it faces. Nice music!

Music made me jump when the game loaded! Cool idea and well implemented for how little time we had, good entry!

A pretty standard top-down shooter, although the "backwards" aiming makes it a little more challenging. Sounds are gross, but the music is good. It's really just a fart joke, but at least it's pretty polished.

Interesting concept and very simple. I liked that it was straight forward and there were multiple... power ups? Quite entertaining.

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.
