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

Pro-Pain ~ Yet another zombie survival game

by Terrabalt - Compo Entry

You remember why you feared the night. one minute you are walking silently to your apartement, and next you are fighting green mutated mans with this flame... exhaust... THING.
You wonder when the next rescue team will come...
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

As the title suggest, this is a Top-down survival zombie game, in which you play as someone who found an flamethrower thing to fight zombies. be careful, though, as it's easily overheated.

WS - Move Up-down.
Mouse - Look.
Left Mouse Button - De/Activate the thing.

note: i didn't read the psa until after i've uploaded it, so sorry.

I like this! Its a kinda abstract floating road in space survival nightmare! :) a little basic gameplay wise as you can stand in a line and kill them without any danger but the music is terrifying!

Music is the best part of this game. It's really up to the dark minimalistic visial style and surprisingly creates the atmosphere.

I found it too monotonous, sorry :-/ Best part was the audio. The rest didn't look and feel good to me.

Heh, i don't expect that the music got so much love. Thanks!
@Horsed yeah, sorry about that. I would like to add more features to the game, but i got hit by the deadline.

Cool idea. Nice graphics would have helped and maybe some background. Also the flame could have had more brightness and color.
Very good.

Very enjoyable entry, the scenes were a bit dark tho.

The music is great, and the blowtorch thing sounds great too. Could have done with better AI, so they won't all come at you in a straight line. The zombies look a bit like R2-D2 :)

The music was good but the gameplay got boring fast. Graphics were too abstract for zombies and player. Movement of player is too slow.
I liked the camera and the rotating street - gave some helicopter view.
The "HUD" for health and heat of flame thrower could be more visual.
Add a bit more polish, different enemies and more adrenalin and it will be much more fun!
I think you missed the theme IMHO cause every zombie game I know offers flame throwers...

I featured your game in my Video Series. Thanks again for sharing it with me.

The music in this game was very enjoyable, the gameplay as other have already mentioned lacked a bit. But I really like what you did with the title, it took me a bit to get it.

It's a bit hard without the striving controls

May 4, 2015 @ 6:54am

kind of repetitive. gets old fast. not a bad game, but nothing sticks out for me.

Simple and works well, cool music. Controls seems a little weird to me, I would have liked some WASD key movement.

Rather simple gameplay but like others noted nice music you've got there.

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.
