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

Leaky Week

by remmy - Jam Entry

So we're finally done :)
A short RPG/visualnovely game made by @kohlrabi23 and me, @ther3m.

The audio is by Tom Fahy, Link shows their archive.org album page.

We used a pretty cool enginekindathing called "playgroundjs" by @rezoner. Check it out!

Everything else was created within the 72 hours.

Bugs:
I experienced that the audio doesn't play or you aren't able to start the game if it's not completely loaded yet and i didn't have time to look how to fix that. Maybe just wait a short moment before you click play.

Controls:
arrow keys and space (or enter)

Fun:
If you want to use the mapeditor i wrote you can access it with a quite old cheatcode (when you are on a map) ;)
You can even export the map you made to the js-console as a JSON-string when you run "LEAKYWEEK.map.export()" in there. Whyever you would want to do that.

I played to the end! I tried to play it in the window above but by using arrow keys, it moves the screen up and down which makes it unplayable. Luckily I went to the web link too and it works better there. Nice story!

A nice game overall, but there are small borders between the tiles (Firefox 37)

Engaging story and generally a solid game. Gameplay isn't too interesting but story keeps you playing. To be honest i expected some twist, for example mysterious man was just an "agent" working for other bank and he was just using you, but i liked your version too.

BTW: I like those The IT Crowd references :D

After a few minutes playing, the character was impossible to control with keyboard. I'll guess the end ! God job anyway, catchy story and a good sense of suspense ! Interesting answer to the theme.

Great Game I noticed some ripping between the textures which sometimes happens when using tile sets. Great story line as-well.

ah, i found out what caused the borders between the files in firefox, it's fixed.
apparently chrome and ff handle it differently when you place an image on a canvas with floating point coordinates, now it rounds them down :)
And thanks for the feedback! Yeah, gameplay isn't as interesting as we planned it, wasted a lot of time on being tired and not able to think the first two days ^^"

Great atmosphere, the graphics were a little small.

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.
