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

Bomb Your House

by rohtie - Jam Entry

In order to protect his house from getting sold to some weird dude, he has to take matters into his own permanent marker.

Bomb Your House is a game where you use a permanent marker to draw on everything.


2 second summary of gameplay: http://i.imgur.com/szeq9FL.gifv
25 min of me having fun with the game: https://vimeo.com/125558960
Post mortem: http://ludumdare.com/compo/2015/04/21/update-4-bomb-your-house-post-mortem/

If you try my game, I would super happy if you could submit a screenshot of your creative vandalism!

If you have a tablet, use it! It makes for an even better experience!

NOTE: I forgot to put in a way to exit the game from within the game. But there are alternative ways: Just press alt+F4 when you are done.

Please let me know if there are any problems running the game.

---------

I have finally released a post compo version of Bomb Your House!

For details and download links, visit: http://ludumdare.com/compo/2015/05/03/bomb-your-house-post-compo/

---------


This is my first LD. I was originaly going to submit the game to the compo, but realized I did not have enough time, so I jumped on the jam wagon, and I am glad I did.

This is also my first time using Unity. I had a few dozen wrestling hours with the engine, but I finally got stuff to work the way I wanted to.

I pretty much used half of the time on programming and the other half on modeling, painting and recording.

If I had another day, I would create an outro for the game, showing shocked adult faces. Additionally I would fill the bathroom with small bathroom related items, to make it feel even more real.

I am considering making this into a fullfledged game where it is possible to walk around the whole house and draw on stuff.

Tools: Unity (using Boo) -- Sublime Text -- git -- Blender -- Photoshop -- Audacity

Could you upload the source somewhere, like github? I'd like to see how a Unity game made with Boo looks like.

Really fun idea, the only thing I did not really like was the fact the camera rotates with the mouse while you are also drawing with the mouse. I'd rather had that you could lock the camera in place and then draw. Fun interpretation of the theme! Good job. (:

This is insane!
Played it on my tablet and had so much fun putting marker everywhere!
We really need a version with the full house and a scoring system x)

I have a lot of games to try, but I will surely come back to hit in a few days and post some screenshots of my works of art! =D

The mood is great, the little intro is really nice and tight. Well done! And thanks for this nice surprise!

This is crazy! :) I love the idea behind the bombing. It gives - I dare to say - some depth to the game :) Not to mention really astonishing drawings at the beginning!

This is so awesome. I only wish there were more areas to walk around and draw in! Great idea and nice little intro haha

I drew dicks, satanic worshipping devil stuff, and all of that stuff. I think everyone else did too :^). Even topped it off with something like "This toilet will talk." Not very fun as it stands with no goal, and I'm not sure how you could ever tie in a goal that is anything but reactions to what you drew, I think everything else stands up though.

Funny game and nice intro graphics! An ending would certainly help, as would sound.

Not much gameplay but the idea is nice.
The controls are very fast, I can't make things look nice (propperly drawn dongs) :(

yeah great great great great !

I had a lot of fun with this one
It would indeed be nice to have the whole house to draw shit all over it
What would be great too is to have other options to vandalize stuff up (like letting the water run everywhere and break stuff in total rampage mode)

It's an original idea, and I had some laughs playing it, but the controls are a bit off. It would have been better if you could look and draw individually instead of at the same time. I had a lot of fun though :)

Really, REALLY fun! Got some good laughs from it doing random stuff! although a bigger room might've made the game less claustrophobic and allowed more space to play with. Good job!

Yeah, they should give me this game when I was a kid.. maybe they could save money on renovation... :)

I drew a poop in the toilet. 5/5

Very nice idea! I wish there was more rooms to decorate. Wacom is a must for this one. :D

clever, though my lack of drawing ability becomes more apparent. I think it would be nice if you had muffled audio coming from the hallway of the house as potential buyers walk through. ""oh this is such a lovely and clean house" etc. That would give a greater sense of presence and pertinence to the act of drawing on the walls.

I spent so much time coloring the toilet bowl :P

A neat idea, 5/5 for theme! Some issues I had with the game were that the mouse sensitivity (Windows) was way too high, and the mouse cursor wasn't captured in game so as I spun around my mouse would leave the game window.

Adding a character model to the mirror reflection and some sfx would have really improved the mood, too.

All in all, a fun LD entry. :)

I don't hate against people that say lol, it's just simply not something I say, mainly because usually when I would want to, I'm not actually laughing out loud.

This game made me lol so hard my wife asked what the eff was wrong with me.

So, there is a deep story behind it. The guy is angry that his house will be sold and paints it over with some strange marks. But look at the mirror. He can't see his own reflection, so we can understand that he's a ghost. That actually explains the fact he can easily draw on ceiling and wall that are far away. But what's the story of this ghost? May be he lost his family here and now he's trying to draw they faces on the walls?
Hehe, ok, sorry. Great game, I had some fun, but camera movement could be slightly not so fast. Nice entry.

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.
