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

Sinner Party

by Zemmi - Jam Entry

Host a dinner party in hell.
Make sure everybody keeps eating.

Pick up food with right mouse, release to throw.
Encourage guests to open up to you by singling them out with left mouse.

Fill the crucifix meter by feeding guests, do it in time to win.

*POST JAM NOTES*
Post Jam is much better, it's got sound and other junk. If you like the original try it out.

I have no way of testing the Linux or Mac versions. Hopefully they work.

The idea is good, and the humor is fantastic. And okay, the game need some polish.

Cool concept. It seemed impossible to keep everyone fed, because of how many of them there were that were talking simultaneously. also, the left button of singling people out didn't work while holding food which was strange.

Overall, cool concept, just work on balance.

Great idea. And your graphics are top. Wonderful.
Throwing felt not very satisfying. You should make the collider bigger, so the food gets more easily grabbed.

I sweat they are closing their mouths as soon as I look at them. This is pretty challenging. I like the visuals and idea is great. Maybe too hard as of right now.

Like the special effects, particularly the one with jumping letters, very creative

It felt like a nice setting, feeding things in hell. But I found it way to hard to get even one piece into their mouths. And I'm not sure I like the fat pigs snoring stuff. For the game-play, I guess it would do good to not have a physics based test of if the food gets inside, but use a trigger and a test for if the mouth is open enough to warrant a successful throw. The way the food just flew through behind the counter was not very intuitive, so maybe add wall/collider there so missed food gets back one the counter. It might also do the game good to start with very few guests. All in view. And then either as the level progresses or at later dinner parties, add more sinners.

Genuinely disturbing; very nice work on the mood. Liked your modeling a lot, too. Balistics under pressure is too hard for me :)

Definitely an original idea, and a hard and stressful game. I think the gameplay is missing a bit of something to make it more compelling though, but good effort overall. Nice low-poly style too.

I'm going to use the word chatty fatty more from now on. Love the art style to this game, and has some really nice effects in game. Interesting concept, but I found the food throwing a little hard to get right. I really enjoyed this entry, well done!

Game looks and plays great. Really wish sound was in because that would have made keeping track of who needed food much easier. Looking forward to a version with the final touches!

Apr 26, 2015 @ 6:52am

Well, I guess Gluttony is considered to be one of the cardinal sins...

Awesome game! I like the art style and the LEFT CLICK thingy! Aiming was a bit hard though.

Great modelling skills and great setting. Really hard to pick up food, made left click too difficult to use!

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.
