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

Punch/Foot/Gun

by flwns - Jam Entry

How about a gun that throws out melee attacks!

W and D - to move
Space - to jump
Left Click - for punch
Right Click - for Foot
1 - will RESET the level
m - for fullscreen

use punch and foot to destroy the enemy

there are 3 levels, and the last level repeats, the goal is to go right.

TIP: to get far on the third level, you will need a good combination of foot and punch.

[Unfortunately this is not the game I wanted to make, these enemies and goal are really just a last minute concoction. In my limited 2 days of making this, my conclusion is that I spent too much time sleeping and working on art/animations]

I liked the art style. Made it to the 3rd level with only punching :) Would have been nice if there was an end!

I like the art as well, But I couldn't beat the level, I think the Ai could be more interesting, eventually I got hit and knocked off screen and couldn't continue. Its a good start.

The mood and environment is really cool. I was just getting the hang of things before I was attacked by a million eye lashes.

I enjoyed the art style. On the 3rd level I was just PUMMELED by ghost eyes though!

I played on the Web and it was super big on my screen. Make it like 900x600. I like the art style a lot. Eyes should have 1 HP. They're moving too fast at least with how I was playing it.

Art and audio is quite good! I didn't understand the gameplay at all though - I like the punck/kick idea, but the enemies moved way to fast to actually react and hit them. It also also seemed like I could easily get off two punches in the amount of time it would take to kick.

Nice art. The game is a bit too fast for me though.

Really fun game! The audio is awesome, and the art aswell. Level 3 is damn hard!

Great styling, cool idea. Unfortunately doesn't get harder later as much as Random Number God decision. If the eyes will float above you, you'll walk through the level. If they hit you, they'll blow you off the screen.

The art style was very unique...had a nice hand-drawn vibe to it. +1 on naming the truck "Charlene" btw.

The third level was too hard for me. I couldn't beat it :( Consider changing it so that players respawn at the beginning of the current level and not the beginning of the first level

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.
