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

Bears and Bees

by Harley77 - Compo Entry

You are a mild mannered bee keeper, doing your bee keeping things. However, when Monsanto kills your bees with their dubious products, they send in a team of execs to finish the job.. on YOU.

Time to fight back with the only weapons you know.. your pet bear that can claw, fart, and shoot bees out of his mouth.

I recommend using the WEB link below rather than the window version above.

Controls:
Arrow Keys to Move and Jump
F: Fart
C: Shoot bees
Space: Use your Claw



This game came together in less than 48hours due to other matters that needed attending, but, I'm happy none the less.

Also, There was going to be a art cutscene that explains why the player is not wearing a shirt or pants... but you know.. 48hours and all that.

Enjoy!

I love the scrolling background and enemy death animations.

Though I did not get very far before losing, it seems like a fun game and the concept/back story is pretty cool.

I liked how even the bees looked like they died when you used a Fart. I made it to the end after dying a few times. Those suits are killer.

great aesthetic, premise reminds me of simpsons quote "Or What? You'll Release the Dogs? or the Bees? or the Dogs with Bees in Their Mouths so When They Bark They Shoot Bees at You?"

I loved the the concept, and it was actually pretty well done. Sho doesn't love riding a big bear through the city and farting on businessmen. Also loved the victory screen lol

Pretty cool concept and weird ass weapons. Graphics are okay. Sound effects for hits/dying enemies got annoying after a while. Other that that pretty neat game. Good luck!

'C' for BEES! The sound effects make this pretty funny. Not a whole lot to this game but it works and is playable. I was a little surprised to be fighting in a city rather than out on a farm though.

I like the pixel art style, however the controls were a bit awkward.

The concept of "bear that shoots bees out of its mouth" made it for me. Also the Monsanto backstory was pretty hilarious.

For a while, I thought the game took place on one screen, didn't realize it scrolled and there was actually an end. Maybe you could add an arrow pointing right that flashes on the screen for a few seconds.

I liked it, simple, playable, good graphics.
Just a little bit slow on the character movement and I think there was a hole were you need to jump, the character was like floating there instead of falling

Apr 26, 2015 @ 9:11pm

Simple but fun platform game - enjoyed playing it!

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.
