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

Vermin and Cheese

by skiper4e - Compo Entry

PLEASE READ:
So the idea of the game is that you are an exterminator who has lost all his equipment and has to trick the vermin into killing themselves with some cheese.
I might have stretched the theme a bit but i think it still fits. Enjoy !

Controls:
up: choose the location of the cheese
left and right : change the location
down : place the cheese
r : restart
esc : go to main menu

Cute little game, I was pretty confused on what to do though.

Took me a while to figure out that I needed to hit "up" to spawn the cheese. Once I got that, it seemed fairly clear that I needed to lure the mice to the cats/guy, but predicting where the cats/mice would go was difficult. The sound played when a mouse died needs to be toned down. Finally, it wasn't clear if I'd won or not; was the fourth level the last one? I couldn't progress further than that.

The game is crashing randomly I think. It just freezes out of nowhere.
Good luck with your game, tho ;)

I didn't understand very well the game, some times the level just do not finish.

Sorry, this doesn't work for me, Linux and Web only.

Thanks for all the feedback everybody! I'll tone down the death sound and add a proper tutorial level after the judging has ended since I think changing anything in-game now would be kind of cheating

Doesn't work, something is wrong?

you could use some time to convey the game state result before switching to the next level. mice or cats changing movement or colour then could help indicate what happened (mouse got the cheese/cat got the mouse). are the big mice dogs? good work!

I got past the first level. There is not much audio, or visual cue as to what is happening so it is hard to understand what is going on.

Wasn't sure what we were supposed to be doing. The effects of the cheese were not obvious, or they were inconsistent. Hard to play.

Too bad that is not available online

Oh dear, I'm not sure what I should do.
I think I caught the two mice, but I don't get any feedback, the game just stops. If the second mouse is gone, have you beaten the mice?
Are there any more levels?

That background broke my screen ^^. More seriously, it's interesting but hard to understand.

My optic nerves have been cauterized, but I had a really good time. Thank you for introducing me to indigo-violet colorblindedness.

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.
