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

I Made Decisions

by lamphj - Compo Entry

Spells of power have always been found on simple things.
From bits of scrolls, or painted rocks, to even maybe a child's sticker book.
The most powerful spells only need true intentions to work.

LudumDare 32 Entry by Lamphj.

Controls WASD or Arrow Keys to move. Space bar to place a sticker.

Stickers of lightning are a most Unconventional Weapon.

Not too bad! It's an interesting idea and has some challenge to it. I got stuck on the first room with the blue rocks though. I couldn't figure out how to get past those.

Same as the other guys, tried everything and can't get past those two blue guys.

I'm glad others are saying the things about the rocks, I felt silly.

I felt like this was going down a sad path akin to a Hook story, hope it turns out happily =3

The colorful stickers idea is pretty cool, but it took me a while to figure out how to make them change, and even then, I'm not sure I was doing it right. They just happened to change after a while of standing on the pools.

I figured it out! Hold the sticker over a puddle for a few seconds to change its color.

Also, you can walk between the first two blue guys if you're persistent enough.

Pretty nice game, and interesting idea. The way to beat the boss was pretty neat, too.

For those who are stuck at the blue guys: standing in the puddle for 3 seconds will change the color of your weapon to that color. Change your weapon to blue, and kill those blue guys! :p

I think the issue here is feedback. Nothing was really happening when stepping in the puddle, and the first sound only happens after a second. By then most have left it already.

But besides that, great work! :)

Still no answer on how to pass the blue rocks. Unless... that is your way of saying there are no more levels.
Interesting game by the way.

Fun. I got to the Boss, but couldn't get a green sticker no matter what I tried.

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.
