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

Ninja Shine

by AsixJin - Jam Entry

I'm sorry but WebGL isn't working for me. If you are using Chrome click here (chrome://flags/#enable-npapi) or download the game (I can build to Mac and Linux if needed)

Before I get started with the description I wanted give a shout out to Crash aka Better Man of RMVBM(http://www.rmvbm.com/) for hooking me up with the music. If you give me high marks on the music please give my homies a listen!
----------
Welcome to Ninja Shine, where you must help the ninja use her flashlight to get rid of the monster creeping in her dojo!

this is a pretty easy game but the way it's setup it could last a while.
There are three generators that spawn enemies. Once it's done it will
destroy itself. Once all the generators and monsters are gone, the clock will
stop and post your score somewhere...How fast can you clear the dojo?

Also take note you can't leave your flashlight on for long. It will discharge. cutting it off will allow it to charge.

Imma go over the three different types enemies you will encounter!
-The Slimes just move...They have a large amount of HP which will require a lot of energy. I'd save them for last.
-The Skulls are strange...They seems to sometimes run from the light but otherwise they may chase you and if they touch you, your flashlight will short out.
-the Ghost mine their own business, but flash them with a light and they will vanish. You have to hit these suckers three times before they vanish for good.

Controls
A = Flashlight Switch
Pressing Enter on the title screen will take you to the game
Once the timer has stopped you are done and can press Enter to go back to the title

Would love to play this but it will not progress past the "enter" screen.

I can't get it to load at all, just sticks on a blank screen.

Mac OS X 10.10.2
Chrome 41.0.2272.118 (64-bit)

Nice game, just needs a bit more polish and probably more features. I had no problem launching the game.

nice idea. Do do with an ending and tidying up but nicely done.

The concept is pretty interesting although I would like to see some sound effects from the enemies so I know that they're being hit by the flashlight. Also your friend makes some really sick beats :)

Flashlight reload seemed a bit slow. Graphics were good but it felt very zoomed in. Music was good.

I like how there are different enemy types.

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.
