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

Organ

by PeerPlay - Jam Entry

//////////GAME INFO:
You are an organ player coin collector, and you want to collect money from people that are shopping in the streets. Walk towards people on the street, and collect their money, by tapping on the beat with your hard earned coins!

//////////HOW IT WORKS:
When you look at people, and when they are near you, you can start tapping to gain their respect. If their bar fills up, you get their money. The less shopping bags people have, the more money they give you.
Hint: The closer you are to your organ, the more money people will give you.
Every round the money goal becomes higher, and also the street gets more busy!

/////////CONTROLS
Forward: W
Turn: A,D
Moneytap: Spacebar / left mouse
Reset: R <- if you don't like your character, let the game recreate your character

/////////FEATURES
3D world
Custom characters
cool soundtrack
lots of fun

Hi folks. Here is my game Organ, for the compo. Created in 48hours, all by me!I've worked so hard, and I'm very proud of my entry! It is my third time for Ludum Dare, but now I really have outdone myself. It was lots of fun to create a system, where the game makes random characters! I actually wanted in the game that you could customize your own character, but time....my gosh! I hope you have some fun with the game. I was really going for the graphics this time, and some innovative game design. Not sure if the game is as fun as I hoped though.

Cute idea! The blocky characters are really charming and I like the music a lot. The gameplay, however, is pretty basic. Overall it's pretty cool though.

Too full of frustration for me, the game is not about organ player, but about pressing a key when you see green light. At *very* fast rate)

Very nice aesthetically. Controls took a little getting used to, until I found the rhythm. Great work!

The sound and visuals are pretty good. I don't really see how it fits the theme.

The visual style is amusing, but like scorched mentioned the actual game mechanic is limited to just rhytmically clicking your mouse. Maybe I'm just sour because I couldn't get any money from the pedestrians... Congrats on your third game!

Very nice graphics! The sounds are also pretty good. The gameplay isn't that exciting, but that's not a very bad thing in this game actually.
Overall a pretty nice game ^^

It's graphics are really impressive. Beautiful animations. But the game is a bit boring.

Please play the game as standalone download, if your keyboard controls don't work in the webversion! You have to look at people, to get their money!

Thanks for the feedback so far. I know the mechanic of tapping is abit scars...but there are lots of multipliers to gain with different playstyles.

Also, The theme is AN UNCONVENTIONAL WEAPON. my idea was that your weapon is the can of coins, which you use a 'weapon' to gain money. ;) I don't like to make violent games.

The music was nice, although the rhythm seemed a bit off to me. It'd be nice if the rhythm switched up every little while to keep it more interesting.

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.
