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

I'm sorry, I'm jealous

by igoramendola - Jam Entry

This is a story about a jealous girl called Amanda.

Use ARROWS to move and SPACEBAR to talk/action/weapon (you have to find it first).
:D

==================================================

NOTE:
I couldn't finish it in the first 48 hours because I had many commitments this weekend. So, I decided to use the 72 hours period. This was my first Jam submission (and not Compo).
Even so, there was a few things that I didn't do due the lack of time. Originally, I wanted to make it choose a random girl as 'target' (it's the same girl every time) and with different rooms. Also, I wanted to make it more detailed graphically. Plus, I couldn't make a background music.
However, I'm happy to have made it playable. As least, I managed to finish the funny part haha :P

The objective reminds me of Carmen Sandiego, but the gameplay is mostly walking left and right. Still fun though.

This is so simple but so extremely fun I love it... if you took this and expanded it I would buy it.

Hahaha, adorable. I'm sure it was a time issue, but I'd've enjoyed if it was randomly generated so I could play through more than once =3

Thank you all for your feedback and kind words :))

@fixedgerald yeah, the gameplay it's too simple. Because of lack of time, I decided to do something pretty basic. I think it's one of the simpler games that I've made hehe. On the other hand, I'm glad that you found it funny.

@TwittleCreator there is a good chace to exist a post-mortem version, more complex. Probably will be free, but I can accept donations hehehe

@seraphki actually, yes! I started the game with the idea of being a random girl, but I hadn't enough time to make it :P

Really simple, yet fun. At first, I found out who is was, but she just kept saying she doesn't know. I lost.

The second time, I mistakenly press space by a wine bottle, and her response make a smirk come on my face. (This is perfect!)

Nice little game, thank you for your submission.

Muahaha >:D -- revenge! But now I feel bad. This was a really cute, complete game. I had a lot of fun playing. Good job!

This is a nice tight composition that ended up being quite a bit of fun. I also enjoyed your take on the theme. Very cool!

Clever gameplay, though the petty jealousy plot left a lot to be desired :)

Ha - she totally deserved that ;) Your pixel art is always so fun, and the ideas are really cute, touching on themes you don't see too often in games. I'd love to see this one finished up with randomized answers and some fun chip tune dance music ;)

Thank you everybody for playing it and your comments. Your feedback helps for the post-jam version. Also, I'm glad that you had fun :D

Fun little game. Is it the same girl every time? I got the same description both times I played.

igoramendola says ...
Apr 25, 2015 @ 4:53pm

@DKoding Thank you! And yes, it's the same. I wanted it to be a different girl every time, but I hadn't enough time to work on that feature. If I make a post-jam version, it will be a random girl :)

Short and sweet. Very enjoyable. She totally had it coming.

I could not target the girl. But I liked the idea.

The game is nice, even if Amanda isn't. The deducing who to attack is similar in concept to my entry which was a pleasant surprise. Solid entry. Good stuff.

I didn't appreciate the plot, but the basic premise, speed chatting up people like a hurried detective has some promise too it. As other's said, you probably need a second walking dimension. If not 2D movement at least doors to press up to get into other rooms. Then I wonder if the mechanics wouldn't be more fun if they were made more general. Finds three clues and discover a suitable weapon (should probably be a visual hint of what is a suitable weapon upon getting the third clue). Then get the revenge before time runs out. So finally, the plot: I think my fun-meter would go up 10-folds if the revenges were specifically for things typically not "needing" revenges.

Not nice :P Given you ran out of time this is great, seems like you're taking it in the right direction. Having more stuff to play with (and maybe consequences for being a jerk) would be fun.

Nice entry, I like the humour and general mood of it! The gameplay is simple but very effective (i needed 4 runs to win the game), and your pixel art style is brilliant!

Congrats on this entry, I would love to see a post-compo with random targets, more weapons, and more rooms to explore! :)

Interesting idea and has potential. I'm sorry, I'm confused :O

Lol, I enjoyed playing this perhaps more than a lot of the bigger games. Would love an extended version. Brilliant entry :D

Lol hilarious! I loved walking up to random people, talking to them for literally one second, then moving on, trying to identify the criminal. I feel like a detective!

Haha! Jealous girls rock! Anyway, I liked this game, though it took some time to figure out what to do. The pixel art is cute.

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.
