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

Agent C00k13

by NoorStudios - Jam Entry

Evil Cookie stealing robots are stealing all the sweets!! The children are devastated! Agent Cook13 is our only hope.

The only thing that can stop the robots is of course to throw cookies at them.

Save our sweets!


Controls:
Left/right arrow = forward/back.
up = jump (pro tip: continuous jumping on edge lets you climb)
space = throw cookie

I'm opting out of the audio because I ended up using some old track I had laying around, and the sound design is not really finished yet. Except the Audio everything is made from scratch within the jam period, using Unity3D, MayaLT and photoshop.


** mac/linux/win builds have better quality graphics including shadows **
** the web version has a (tiny) post-jam bug fix that fixes the death-crash bug on level 2 and 3, if you are a purist and want the original buggy version, try the downloadables **

Just so you know, the windows download link is broken, it needs a capital A http://www.noorstudios.com/AgentC00k13/agentC00k13Win.zip

Game's great. Nice simple mechanics and Agent Cook13 is a funny looking character with a silly but adorable walk. Some of the collision needs to be smoothed out, but other than that, it's fun.

Thanks for the heads up and the kind comments =) The link should work now.

I couldn't get the web version to work for some reason

I completed the first level then instantly died and I think it crashed. Other than the small bugs it was good fun, and the walking animation is hilarious!

This was fun! The cookie monster animation was funny!

The game is pretty nice, and I really like the cookie monster model! Some times the collision detection doesn't work that great, like with the disc on level 1. Either than that, the entry is pretty good. I might of made the character move a little faster, but that's just my opinion. Also, I liked the story! :) Cool idea, and good job!

Hi, sorry... Never mind. I played the game again, and the character movement is fine, it's just the yellow pieces moved kind of slow, which made me think the character moved slow, but it didn't... Sorry, just ignore what I said above.

I thought it was going to be a game about AG Cook, but cookie monster will do! Charming visuals and audio and adorable story line. However, the platforming needs work on and the laser sometimes shoot me when he's not looking at me. Also, I accidentally fell off in the second level and then the game just froze at Game Over. Besides some gameplay issues, it's pretty well delicious cookie.

Thanks to all of you for the comments =) I know about the game over crash, but still trying to figure out what causes it. And for sure there are more than a couple of issues with colliders and speed settings and such (had about 5 minutes left for testing lol). I believe (but not sure) the standalone is more stable than the web version. Will see if I can smooth things out in a later version while keeping this one on the site for accountability.

How doesn't want to be Cookie Monster? Funny, nice looking game. The only thing to complain about is the Cookie Monster's idle animation, which looks like he's running on the spot. Good job!

Horsed: Thanks! And yes, had some last minute export issues from Maya so only managed to get the run animation in the game on time, so thats why the idle looks weird. Might add the others (idle, jump, climb, throw, pick-up) in a post-jam version once i manage to sort out the export issues.

Luke Molnar: Thanks for telling me, I don't know what happened to it, but will try to fix it.

Lot of work here. I liked the music, the level design.

The game looks good but there are a lot of things out of order. For me the following bugged me:
1. The player character infinite walk animation. It should stop when not moving.
2. The gravity feels to low.
3. Some jump animation would have been cool.

Other thank that, well done.

I like the happy cookie monster dance. Enemies should be a little more forgiving - it's too easy to miss a cookie and have no hope of making it through.

Nice soft objects, a funny cookie monster and cool music. I like how the cookies stack up when you throw them.

Killed all the enemies but the Cake killed me? Or was that the end.

Nice entry

Thanks again everybody =)

ndebruyn: You are absolutely right, the other animations never made it from Maya due to some exportation issues I didn't have time to figure out.

Good idea but needs a lot of work, there is no idle animation and I think is kinda weird to jump with the up key.

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.
