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

Master of Music

by Robinerd - Compo Entry

NOTE: if the web version is lagging, download the standalone version for more settings.

Make your way to the odd harmonies and use your
noise wave to repel them into the deep void.
Doing so will acquire the melodies and put them
together at the top of your screen.

Master the music of all 6 levels to hear the full song.

The unconventional weapon in this case is the noise - with power to destroy even the greatest hits.

Nice game, but it is more of a novel gameplay mechanic and loses it's charm after a short while. The controls are also a bit clunky Still interesting though. Good job.

I like the closer i am the louder music gets. And that sang at the end is really a great reward :)

Cool design, nice physics. Feels like on of the more finished games. Definifly cool, steering was bit clumsy though.

Original idea, and it was visually interesting. I liked the idea more than the play, because the controls were a bit hard to use. Enjoyed the music and use of theme.

Pretty graphics and mechanics. It loses steam quickly though, but a good start for something bigger!

I love trying to get closer and closer to the song (which was very good, by the way). Nice goal mechanic, fun game overall!

It was a little laggy on my computer, so hard to play, but play I did and win I have. Nice game.

Great game, I liked the use of particle effects, although I do agree with Nuclear Mosquito - there could be more mechanics perhaps.

I really liked the game visuals and audio, but the game lagged terribly on my PC, so I couldn't finish the whole game. What's much worse is that I didn't really see any weapon at all...

Thanks for all comments! I clarified my interpretation of the theme a bit in the description.

Fun game, with cool variations in level design. The audio is great, and I love the ways it changes as you approach and defeat enemies. Watching the stage bounce around was very entertaining.

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.
