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

All You Need Is Love

by belowzerogames - Jam Entry

The object of the game is pretty simple you must shoot love at the sad and angry faces and convert them to happy. Of course they don't really want to be happy and shoot sadness and and hate at you.

The more hate that hits your empathy drops which makes it harder for you to shoot love. And the more tears that hit you increases your empathy but drops your happiness. Be warned once your happiness drops to 0 you are done.

After converting one go give them a hug and collect your love. There is 100 love available to be collected. How good are you ?

Feels very retro! I had a hard time aiming in the right direction though

Cool idea, but those angry guys take a lot of love.

Takes a ridiculous amount of love to actually take out one single enemy but the concept itself is pretty interesting.

Nice, but you can try change the movespeed by the movement of the legs. Just move faster :]

The goal of the game sounds kind of familiar ;) I like the 3D/2D graphics of the characters and the trees. I had huge problems even converting one enemy. Am i doing something wrong?

It shouldn't be too hard just keeping blowing kisses by if your empathy drops your firing rates drops but with high empathy you should be able to

Nice job with the game. Even though there's other entries about love-related stuff, your approach is a nice one. :)

The "problems" I have are related to movement (speed), collisions (hitbox) and shooting (on diagonal), but they didn't prevent me from having a nice time playing and enjoying your game. :)

There's a small problem with the hitbox for the player and the trees (in the web version at least), which makes you collide with the void. :P

Thanks everyone for trying the game out I was a little stuck on the theme this time and put this entry together in about 6 hours. I'd like to spruce it up a bit at some point I've done that with my last couple entries here :)

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.
