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

HoneyGuy

by rallebauz - Compo Entry

You move a guy and jump sometimes.
Guy wants honey from bee hives, but bees sting -- ouch!
Also grey people invade your lands.
Also a murder of crows seem to be... murderer crows.

Great game. I love the eating honey animation. The way that you bounce off enemies into other enemies makes it nice and chaotic too

Quite fun in a simple addictive way. I wish you could see the health or score at the top.

Nice graphics and animations, the bouncing mechanic to reach higher honey is cool.

This is great! I'm glad to see someone made a game with bees as a weapon. Was my original idea, too.

Fun little app. I enjoyed the character animations.

Great animation of the sprite. Elsewhere, little sweet entry. Lack of music I think and also a way to jump over the big dude (Yeah the big one at the end) even with some big jump combo.

Good game! Player control was fluid, and the different AIs were awesome.

Hope to see more!

Cute graphics! Shooting bees is funny :)

I think a health bar would have been nice, I had no clue when I'd die...

Fun and addictive game. I love the animations and the graphics are nice even though they are very simplistic. Needs music and a health bar.

The game would do good with a GUI to tell you your bee count. The knockbacks very strong too.

I love the walk animation! This has got a nice bouncy feel and could have used some lively music to match the gameplay. Good goofy fun!

Nice game. The controls are smooth and, once you notice that there is a double jump, its fun to play. The bees kill you too fast though :)

Eating bees and spitting them out of your mouth is pretty great. Long live games featuring bees as weapons!

Nice game! It's interesting to see how many enemies you create by running and stealing honey :D Excellent controls.

Nice little game. A healthbar would've been great! Well done!

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.
