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

Pretty cool, I really like the idea of the 2d - 3d thing, and it was executed pretty well. The intro was also funny, and that yoyo shuriken thing was kind of epic as well haha!

Hey!
I like the 2d to 3d shift a lot. The yoyo is a little bit hard to use, but it can be done. The infection thing is cool as well :)

The dialogue was hilarious, and the 3D effects were pretty cool! I wound up falling through the world in the end but this was fun.

I hope y'all like the game. Did someone manage to beat the final boss yet and save the world? :-)

Yo-Yo Ninja shiruken ! Nice concept, the 2D-3D thing is interesting but at the begining a little bit confusing. The "game over" screen does not allow to restart the game. Had to refresh the browser. Nice art. Congrats for completing in 48h

Good job on the morph between 2D and 3D!

Cool idea
The 2D/3D concept works well
Controls might be improved though

But you did a great job within 48 hours

I love the story background with dialogue at the beginning :)
2D and 3D together are great! Nice game :D

The 2D-3D plane switch effect is pretty ambitious. I'm so far behind times I have no idea how hard making something that in Unity is, but I know I couldn't pull it off. Lots of humor too, I liked it.

Great concept, funny story, but it need some polishing. Good work.

I found it very fun your game, congratulations.

This was strange, glitchy and bumpy...in a good way! I really dig the 3d-2d stuff and voice over was something i really wanted to do but run out of time. Congrats!!

Very cool effect and the humoristic aspect of the game was nice! Great game :)

Good use of the theme and the 2d and 3d effect is pretty amazing! It was really challenging to use the Yo-Yo to hit the enemies and that made dodging and attacking a really interesting balancing act. The opening cutscene was pretty cute, I enjoy it a lot. Great job!

Great intro, vocals! The reveal of the chosen weapon was brilliant. Such complex blend of 3d and 2d wizardry. the music was fitting for a platform and the sounds. I wish i didnt hit so many innocent people with my weapon. I failed on two attempts. Threw the yoyo and then jumped, and then i missed the enemy, that happened a few times, rookie mistake!

Pretty creative use of 2d/3d mechanics, and a great sense of humor! I struggled a bit with the controls, but had a great time nonetheless! cheers

Cool game, the hints were on the Screen for a bit too long, and it also takes long time to restart after death. Still a solid entry.

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.
