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

Warpstrike

by TheAsuro - Jam Entry

*IMPORTANT* Web-Player version currently has some issues with displaying only blue sky after a level load, clicking around might fix it. Consider downloading one of the non-web versions (they also have higher quality graphics and key-bind options)!

My second entry for Ludum Dare jam. This time I can say that the game got a lot further towards what I would count as "done". However, there are still a thousand things that I wish I could have added (like sound).

Towards the end I lost my motivation a bit, that's the reason why there are so few levels and the game is so short. Next time I may team up with someone who is better than I am at level/game design.

The game was made by me in Unity3D, the only external resources I used are some textures from this place: https://community.renderman.pixar.com/article/114/library-pixar-one-twenty-eight.html

Anyways, I hope you enjoy this short little "puzzle" game :)

The game broke after the first time more than 3 enemies showed up. I'm pretty sure the camera shot off to somewhere it shouldn't be. Otherwise, was a fun puzzle experience. Would definitely play more.

The idea of teleporting being a weapon was an interesting one, kinda reminded me of Portal a little. Good Job!

I want more levels! Really enjoyed it. I also experienced the same bug where the camera flew off, though I could solve it by teleporting/dying/restarting the level.

Yeah, the game bugged out and the screen went blue on L4. Cool mechanics though, and nicely implemented! Good work!

Web version crashed on start but windows one worked. Cool game. Very nice mechanic but quite short.

Hey, cool game! I really like the teleporting mechanic. You really have to plan out the level before you start. One minor thing: I would have preferred a fixed camera. I missclicked sometimes because the camera slowly moved on its own. But other than that, great work!

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.
