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

Lets Go Green

by Slikker - Jam Entry

Lets go green is a management type game, The objective is to build trees, get resources and upgrade trees to fight off the flame throwing lumberjacks. To win the game you need to upgrade your main tree to max level.. If it destroyed.. you lose...

The vision for our game is to make it multiplayer in the near future, so that you can fight head to head against another player.

Gameplay:
Objective of the game is to get seeds and eventually upgrade your main tree to max level.
You can get seeds by planting trees and harvesting them when they are fully grown.
Be careful though because there are lumberjacks with flamethrowers who want to destroy your trees.

Controls:
Click and drag or use arrow keys to move camera.

Special Thanks:
Sean Skinner for the Music.

This is a great entry!

At first I thought that it was a bit slow, as I was gaining so little seed. But then I realised that I could harvest the trees that I planted and all of a sudden things started moving a long very nicely.

I love games where you have to manage resources and try to strike a perfect balance between upping your economy and making sure that your defenses are strong enough. The game is a bit like a Tower Defense game in that sense.

The visuals are very nice and well done and it all follows the same style, making it feel coherent and polished.

There is an impressive amount of content, very well done!

Neat take on the time management genre. Since all upgrades are available to you at the start, it was a little hard to find what I should upgrade. Although that usually comes later on anyways with tutorials and such.

Nice concept and implementation. Well Done.

Love the idea - it didn't get me hooked, was a bit slow. Read in the comments here that you should harvest the trees. Will try it again later.

great game. took a while for me to figure out left/right arrow keys to move to the defending trees on both sides. once i did that the game suddenly became playable. I would suggest zooming out the camera a bit so that we can see all our trees at once

Nice job! A little hard to figure out what to do, and kind of hard (wish I could buy more upgrades but you need to play almost perfectly to do that), but overall it was decent

Very cool ressource management game. Really hard, havent been able to level up very far. Always get surprised by one wave totally destroying a tree and then I dont see how I can save the day since attacking trees are super expensive. I ll try again though!

It takes a while to learn all the options you have, for game like this, it would be nice to see some short tutorial.
I like the concept and gameplay itself is good.

Nice art, sweet soundtrack even though it doesn't fit that much with the game I think. A bit slow-paced, a tutorial could have been nice as well. Bonus point for using the 2 themes Harvest and Unconventional Weapon.

Good luck!

trees are protecting trees in order to chop them later? that's weird. Anyway, enjoyed playing. It would be useful to show the names of the trees, and their attributes (growing time, value, etc)
I'm not sure if it's me who didn't figure it out, but it's annoying that you cant do anythig after you lost the protectors

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.
