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

Zombie Hut

by TMKCodes - Compo Entry

You are a mad doctor who created an unconventional weapon called Zombie Virus. The world has been destroyed and the zombies are hunting for their last meal their creator himself. Fight with your bare hands and survive the zombie apocalypse!

Controls:
Mouse Right button walk forward
Mouse Left button hit a zombie

The game was created with Go programming language with SFML library and Krita Graphics Editor and the music was created with LMMS and sound effects with sfxr.

I know there is a bug with the collision detection, but the game is playable. The game has hard coded 1280x720 window resolution. I hope you enjoy my little zombie killing. Remember both Windows and GNU/Linux versions are compiled for 64bit version systems. I will not support 32bit systems at this age of technology. The Windows version has been tested in clean Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit installation.

Nice game! I enjoyed the increase of difficulty, but got sort of repetitive towards the end.

Played for a few minutes, killing 17 zombies. Movement was confusing at first, but I got the hang of it pretty quickly. Game play is pretty fun music really adds to it. Overall, I enjoyed myself and plan to retry so I can get to a much higher difficulty.

The information/tips are easy to read and help a lot at the right
times.

I thought the ugly mouse picture with left button "walk" would make you press it right away and you would notice it walks towards your mouse coordinates.

The movement was little hard to get use to but other than that nice game!

At first I thought the game was a little too easy, but I was glad to see the increased difficulty. Good job. Pretty fun game :)

Movement was odd, and honestly better off just holding attack down the whole time. The hitboxes seem odd, sometimes I'll be able to hit a zombie from a significant distance away, other times I have to walk up and give em a great big hug.

Interssting game. Quite fun. Though you could just hold down attack and walk the whole time and enemys didnt even wanted to destroy my hut just me, making things a lot easier (maybe too easy) Still cool.

Solid entry, though I personally don't feel the theme much at all. Punching zombies might be a tiny bit unconventional, but nothing that surprises me in a game at all.

Ilseroth the hitbox problem has something to do with SFML I mentioned like I mentioned the collision bug.

Yes I know keeping hit button down makes the game much easier and randomizing if the zombies go after the hut or player would make the game harder.

Languard.. Zombies are itself unconventional mass destruction weapon, not the hand to hand combat.

Nice little game.. however, it would have been better with slight UI work. considering the stats at cmd etc.! :)

Maunovaha I forgot to remove those prints I used for debugging while programming from the source code. They are not meant to be used as stats. After you die or kill all the zombies it tells you how many zombies you have killed.

I found it very enjoyable.

Pretty simple, but nicely made game. I included it in part 3 of my Ludum Dare 32 compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/Q8RvVjW24Io

Jupiter_Hadley thank you for playing Zombie Hut. I like how you missed the small on-screen guide. :D

Pretty nice and addicting game ! Really had fun playing it !!

Nice idea, though bare hands is not a very unconventional weapon - maybe except against zombies ;-)

I found it hard to figure out when I could hit a zombie - sometimes I hit one a bit away from me and sometimes they stood next to me, ripped off my health and I couldn't hit them...
Graphics could have been a bit better, music was nice.
The idea with the scientist in his hut in the woods is also good.

Killed 69 of the suckers. Great that we can use Go for games nowadays... maybe I'll do my next LD in Go then!

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.
