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

Marty Funk

by retrogradeorbit - Jam Entry

Marty Funk is a flatulent Monk, trying to save humanity from being grumpy. Unfortunately he keeps making things worse because his great flying yoga uses farts for levitation! When he farts on the people, they get angry!

Cursor keys or a/w/d to move.

Land and start chanting with 'space'. Chanting converts grumpy people into happy people.

Be careful not to fart on the happy people's heads! It will make them grumpy again.

Beware of grumpy people, they throw stones!

When all the people are liberated and happy, you can progress levels.

This is a solid game. I especially like the music and sound effects, they work well together.

My issues are with a few mechanics. The fact that your means of movement also makes people angry seems at first like an interesting challenge, but for me it just resulted in a lot of waiting for calm people to walk far enough away from me that I could take off. I also really want some indication of where the remaining grumpy people are, since they can end up being pretty far away and I'm forced by necessity to fly up high where I can't really see. Thirdly, it annoys me to no end that the mood of the character sprites doesn't sync up with the grumpy/non-grumpy counter in the bottom right - that is, someone will find enlightenment or get grumpy according to the counter, but won't show it on screen for at least a second - this made it hard to tell exactly how meditation/farting on people works.

Silly and fun, although its too easy to die 5 seconds into the game by smashing into the ground.

This seems to get stuck just after the loading bar in Safari.

Thats a really nice game, it's fun and it runs and works well, the only issues i see here, are that you dia way too easily, and there's not a respawn button or a restart level, instead you're forced to go to the main screen, and you have to wait for the animation to finish to play again, its a slow restart. Otherwire, that's a really cool game man, keep it up!

Apr 22, 2015 @ 7:03am

Thanks for all the great comments! I agree with you! It really needs a quick respawn with more lives. Going to the title screen does become really tedious. Might look at adding some more lives to make it more playable in the next week or two.

Shame you have to start from the beginning when you screw up, game could use some checkpoints. Also looking for remaining angry people might be annoying.

Despite that i really enjoyed this game, clever idea, good execution and interesting gameplay.

Apr 22, 2015 @ 11:50am

This is really fun! Love the control scheme, it's fun just farting around (sorry) and yeah it's really cool - make more of this.

Well, aside for this tasteless mashup of generic Asian culture, it's a very difficult game

Apr 22, 2015 @ 1:45pm

Nice and fun game. However it was too easy to die and getting back to playing after death took too long for my liking

I found it difficult at first, but once I got used to the controls I had fun.

Wasn't entirely sure what or how I was affecting the people,(do they need to walk back to the temple?) and then I apparently landed a little too hard and exploded!

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.
