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

Brilliantly made. Graphics are amazing, and the music is really good as well. Unfortunately I dont have a gamepad at the moment, so I can't rate the gameplay itself. I'll try to remember to come back once I do. Great job though, keep it up!

Really nice graphics and music merge, a bit hard to understand the mechanics of the game but when you got the hang of it it was great! Would have been nice with some basic AI for playing alone. Good job!

Update, now 2 players can use keyboard

Great execution! I've been waiting for this one since I saw your post on the boards. Well done! I'd love to see some AI for single player.

This game was pretty funny only had one other person to play it with instead of the full 4 but its a cool concept. Definitely wish I had more people to play with!

This is amazeballz beyond dizco.
What a performance.

Apr 20, 2015 @ 2:09pm

Those graphics are great and the music was best I've heard so far, well done. The wrecking ball swinging through was a nice touch.

Apr 21, 2015 @ 7:25am

There's a ton of goofy awesome stuff goin' on here and I loved that, but the beat-based mechanics were tough to get a hang of. Mostly it felt like I was supposed to just watch for disco balls, rather than music-based beat matching.

Severely impressive graphics and amount of things! Nicely done.

Apr 21, 2015 @ 8:12am

The graphics and music are great. Great job!

This is incredibly fun! I'd love to play this with friends, if I had any... :(
I don't really know what to criticize; gameplay, appearance, humor, innovation, everything is awesome!

Really good graphics and audio! Too bad there's no singleplayer though, I'll come back to it if AI is added.

camlang says ...
Apr 21, 2015 @ 1:30pm

Really imperssive entry - the music, the graphics are outstanding. Although sometimes I'm not able to beat match while moving. When the music ends the game still goes on. You should end the game before I guess the timer or something will do.

Apr 21, 2015 @ 2:03pm

I like the art style you went for

Apr 21, 2015 @ 2:40pm

Graphics, music, and pop culture references fantastic! For a brawling game it had the perfect amount of chaos and "wait...was that Miley?!" moments.

Awpteamoose says ...
Apr 21, 2015 @ 3:16pm

Looks awesome! Dat fish though :D

Apr 21, 2015 @ 4:34pm

Oh man, I'll be playing this one a few times over. Great Execution! I'm a sucker for rhythm/timing based games. Funky Fighting!

Apr 21, 2015 @ 7:13pm

Even playing alone is worth it, mainly because of this superb art and music. This could be easily a party game on the xbox (or something along this). Good job!

Really like the concept! :D
Though, it would've been nice to have some computer controlled enemies to fight (all alone tonight :P).

Congratulatios! This game is one of my TOP 10 BEST games from Ludum Dare 32!

Fun: I really loved this game! If we could play with 4 players... Would be Perfect!

Theme: AWESOME! The game follows the theme perfectly!

Graphics: PERFECT! One of the best grafics ever!

Audio: The best!

Humor: The game has a very good comic content!

Gameplay: I found some bugs. In some parts of the screen the characters are cutting we when we go to the top of the game. I think it would need to resize the screen or fix the screen limit.

Apr 22, 2015 @ 7:08am

Nice entry! Very nice graphics and audio! But the gameplay was a bit confusing first!

Jwatt says ...
Apr 22, 2015 @ 8:08am

Hoo boy, there's a lot going on here. Well the starting point of combining two types of beating is memorable enough, and it's taken quite far with the disco theming and brag-worthy production.

Unfortunately at the core, it wasn't responsive enough for a rhythm game, and that's a downer. It felt like there was basically a 50/50 chance to get "perfect" or "fail" regardless of whether I was syncing with the music. (This could have to do with some Unity lag for audio playback, and maybe a larger window for pressing keys would help with that.)

The gameplay is awesome, and graphics too. The music wasn't annoying what soever. Thank you for your submission.

Apr 22, 2015 @ 11:36am

Thanks for the Feedback guys~! really appreciated :)

@Jwatt Awesome input~! well about the rhythm it self it's not 50/50 chance though to get "perfect" beat,we test it with a couple of guys and gals to play it, they seem to be troubled too in the beginning, but they managed to get the rhythm. (although the game get faster and harder by the minute they have to keep with it). we did notice that the indicator of the beat it self has to be tweak, and some people didn't know that the rolling portrait at the top was the player's turn. The UI is a bit confusing for some people. we have plan to tweak some more for the post-compo. Thanks for your concern~!

A nice concept. I liked the music. The button screen should be clickable to give enough time for everyone to see it. Still a good entry.

Apr 23, 2015 @ 4:03pm

Gorgeous graphics and idea. Will try to play it with the team=)

Awesome game. Played with a couple friends and took us a while to get used to the rhythm, but it was fun to play together

Fun game with excellent graphics and audio, however it was rather difficult to figure out when I could attack. Couldn't play with two people unfortunately.

Characters are rad and sound design is brilliant! Good job, continue working on that game!

Art style reminds me "Don't starve" meets "The Swindle".

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.
