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

Wild tales: enlightenment

by psychonull - Jam Entry

This time we wanted to make something not too serious, nor linear, nor complex... so somehow we ended up making this.

We used Construct 2 for the sake of trying something new that would allow us to prototype fast.

For graphics we used photoshop, paint.net and piskel.
Music with Oscilab.
SFX with Bfrx and Audacity.

Loved the football game, really. I´ll give that design another chance into a more finished videogame... and sell it!

Graphics are nice, and you made 4 games (all with unconventional weapons), so that's cool. The controls on the juggling one didn't feel very smooth. The audio in all the games was really high pitched and made my ears hurt..

@natalye sorry about that! Hope your ears recover soon

Wow, what a fun little collection! Loved details like the wind affecting the direction the money flew. Great presentation as a whole.

4 mini games are fine, but I wish there was an overarching game. Still, solid work.

Making a pig rage with a needle and thread was on my bucket list so thanks for that guys. The games were fun and very humorful. Good job!

Apr 23, 2015 @ 11:28pm

I think the money minigame was my favorite though the others were good. Except the pig one. I felt really bad about the pig! I did not hurt Mr. Piggy! Pigs are friends!

The games were pretty funny but pretty hard for me.
Good job!

Some really cool minigame ideas. Nice.

4 games in one, good stuff! The soccer(football) part was pretty hard, lol.

Here we struggled to finish one game and you created four, I'm really impressed!

One game was too easy ehh? All the games were very complete feeling. Good job!

I liked the airplane spreading fake money game the best.
It would have been better if there was a way to make the 4 games related.

Apr 24, 2015 @ 3:07pm

Thanks everybody for the comments. We originally wanted to have a clear win condition for each game, and unlock an ending after winning every one but couldn't make it on time :(

Very McPixel-ish. Made me smile.

This game doesn’t exactly try to tickle my intellect, but it’s somewhat deliciously absurd. Thanks, I enjoyed it, even if my wrist hurts.

Love crazy stuff like this. well done.

Felt bad for the piggy, but since the game told me to do it I had no choice.

Neat collection of minigames. Couldn't click fast enough to beat the car part though.

Whoa, four games! I love mini games like this :)

Nice ideas and gameplay - these would work really well as part of a bigger, Warioware style game. Sound, graphics and presentation were excellent too. I was really bad at playing them but I had a blast!

Some really interesting ideas. Well done on making four different mini games. Very impressive and innovative.

May 5, 2015 @ 11:28pm

Wow, very funny game! I felt guilty piercing the little pig, though! :P
I love random mini-games like those, they give a WarioWare feeling. My favorite one is the air juggling football player!

Wow, lots of minigames!! I had a lot of fun playing it! I mean them!

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.
