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:


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

CitySim 3000

by smbe19 - Compo Entry

Well, hello there!
You are the hero this city needs. Or at least the criminals of this city need you. You have developed a powerful weapon: through hacking you can control the traffic lights and surrounding cars. Use this power to eliminate the police from this city!

WASD: Control your car
Q: Hack traffic light
E: Hack / Unhack car
Arrows: Control hacked car
Space: Overview
Use hacked cars to eliminate police cars!

There are 7 different cities. They only differ in size (some levels have multiple cities), car count and enemy count.

This was my first "real" game I made in Unity and there were quite a few frustrating parts, but hey, I learned many new things.

Nice gameplay, but I think you didn't had much time to work on the graphics, so, this game with better graphics would be fun =D

Hi there, I really liked the mspaint style graphic, and the overall city looking like.
However, the game is too simple in its current state, and traffic light don't do a stuff. But I think it could become really funny with more content.

Clever game mechanic and concept. With just a few tweaks it could have more staying power. Keep it up!

Worked nicely for me apart from a few minor camera glitches.

Interesting atmosphere, but the gameplay felt a bit simplistic. Spent most of the game just staying still and hacking car after car and driving them into the nearby polices :P. After I won I took a quick look around the city too.

Nice gameplay but I really don't understand why you need to control the traffic lights, cause you can just smash police with other cars
But even with an easy ddifficulty I liked it!

For a first game, its not bad. Little simple and hacking the traffic lights seemed like they didn't do anything. Keep it up.

I like the 3D world. A bit more content, for instance more hacking mechanics, would add more variety to the gameplay.

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 ( 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.
