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

Controls are a bit clumsy, but the game is fun! :)

I don't think it really fits the theme, but it was fun, the graphics are great and the gameplay is innovative. There was a bug that I can honk even when I used all my honks.

Cool idea :) You should mention that players need a controller to play...

The graphics and gameplay are really really nice, well done! Seeing sugar as a weapon is kind of original :)

A great idea and a fun concept. Why do I have to drive the same way in and out of the neighborhood?

Is there a bug with the hunk? I can make sound whenever I want, even with I have no counters.

Little slow but still really funny :D And that sound effects are awesome!

I ran into a bug where one of the children got stuck and I couldn't continue the game, but what I did play was pretty good. There was obviously a lot of effort put into this, and the polish really shows!

The slow pace almost made me give up on first games but I got hooked with the $$ progression. I still think the game is a bit too slow, but it's still fun to play.

Really fun game, I can see this being the kind of thing I spend way to much time playing on my phone. I was able to skip to any level without beating my way too it first. Really well done

Super fun! I'd be glad to see its source code, but unfortunately it's a Jam entry ;)

I'd only like to point out that the money calculating system is sometimes incorrect (like no income after a successful level). I still gave 5/5, though.

I really loved the graphics, idea, UI, it was all well put together. It was just too slow and not too fun with the bumpy car. One kid got stuck at level 4 so I gave up. Also when I bought faster car, the higher levels became "inaccessible" (which isn't too clever mechanism, finish a level, get money and then play again the same level), but I still could play the higher ones. I don't know if it was a bug or not.

Anyways, great job and very high quality.

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.
