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

Funny use of theme and the game looks interesting. However I had problem scrolling after beating all enemies. It just didn't worked (tried arrows, right click, etc...).

Was using the web version.

I love the hex grid design and the destructible objects. Good work for 48 hours and I would love to see this turned into a full game.

Using tears for weapons reminded me of The Binding of Isaac but that cant be a bad thing.

Really Cool, good use of the theme and there was a good amount of depth to the strategy, couldn't beat Well Done!

A basic but cool strategy game.

It is a really good game. But i don't think it fits the theme. Otherwise, it is good, and the graphics are beautiful.

Very hard game, but well polished

I like hex grids and this game makes good use of one. I found it very difficult at the start, then i realised my spit travels about 3 squares, then i realised i could click my move and as long as the guy is on his way i can move forever for free. He moves like a time traveller. Then it became easy. :D

Nice game and overall interesting gameplay, though I feel like spitting is a little light as an unconventional weapong :D
Great job!

It's impressive that you put together a decent strategy game in such a short amount of time, good job

Lol, blew myself up with an ignit barrel off of a chain reaction from a kill. Lots of fun, great job.

Oh, turn-based strategy. Neat! Clever idea, too. I kind of had a problem, though, facing the robots that shoot back. I couldn't find any way to attack them without being attacked back. But nice work anyway!

Fun and quite innovative! Took me a few goes to win, because I had to remind myself that I can move as far as I want, and I don't have to kill everyone.

Great concept. Didn't get very far. Always died to those shooter robots eventually.

A little and good mechanic. Good entry.

Nice job overall. I played longer than I thought I would. A bit of tutorial for controls (rmb drag mostly) and some more thoughtful level design/pacing would help a lot. Very solid start to a roguelike or turn based strategy game.

Impressed you were able to finish a strategy game in the time. Did seem to have issues where I couldn't see what to do once I defeated the guys in the first screen. After awhile more guys came in but I couldn't seem to move the screen over.

Very interesting, I like turn-based strategy. Would have liked to know the range of ranged-enemies.

sadly the camera scrolling doesn't work on web version, so we can't see the whole game

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.
