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

Very pretty! Awesome idea. Will have to play this one again when I have more time.

I had difficulty getting the keyboard mouse coordination working but *really* digged the artwork style :D

Excellent graphics! Controls are a little difficult (my touchpad is responsible for this :P), but I liked the idea.

Great! I'd love to test it with some friends later, since it's rather hard for a single player. Nice concept, nice graphics, awesome music.

Looks amazing! Gameplay got a bit dull after a while, but really great work nonetheless!

I can imagine this game being very fun with more than one players. Very good looking game, and good Controls.

Utterly charming and insanely pretty to look at - good job!

It would be great if you also mapped WASD to move.
Either way, it's really great!

Very nice game, hard to play on touchpad though. It could have worked just with player facing the direction he is walking in...

This is very difficult. Everytime I got rid of one group, another group spread to the rest of the population :P and then I ran out of time as I was about to win. Looks amazing, and very smooth gameplay. Sometimes the UI got in the way, and maybe getting rid of the time limit would be good, but otherwise well done :)

Perfect Graphics. Liking the music too. Took a moment to adjust to the controls but the experience was fantastic.

This was really fun game, really loved the art style. Excellent job! Soundtrack was done quite nicely too

I liked it. It was a bit confusing how to get more supply, at first (then I read the instructions :P) Otherwise it was pretty fun!

Liked the idea. Anti-lice spray-gun was a great idea for an unconventional weapon. Gameplay seemed to be consistent and fun, although a little too repetitive for my liking. Graphics were simple yet well done, not to my personal liking but I can understand why people would like the style of it. Good job!

Great game. Great concept and very good implementation. Can´t imagine how could I improve the design. Congratulations!

I really love the visual, it's wonderful! The audio is also neat and gameplay fun! It's just bit of a pitty some levels are too hard to play alone :)

I like the style of this game, very good looking/sounding. The fact it is multi-player is quite cool. Not much variety in game play is my only critique.

Great job! Graphics and sound are nice, game fits the theme well. Gameplay is really challenging. Fantastic entry!

Really cool. Blame me, but I didn't read the instructions and I tried refilling "water" at fountains, felt pretty dumb after I read the description and realized it's bug spray and not just a water cannon to shower hobos with :D

Really awesome entry! A few pathfinding issues on the second level made me lose some infected guys. I think they got stuck behind a building so I couldn't see them :(

Great job!

Good looking game and it plays well. It was quite difficult to play and I had trouble navigating, but it was still fun.

really nice game here - great graphics and a catchy tune - nice job

AWESOME entry! The isometric 3D art is just fantastic to look at! Gameplay was fun and had the perfect difficulty as well. Good job, guys!

Also, on my computer it worked bit slowly, even though some other 3D unity games worked smoothly.

Another suggestion I would give is that player could be going left/right/up/down aligned with the roads (not with the screen orthogonal system). Since this wasn't even isometric, I couldn't really follow the road, I had to change fingers often and it was aspect that made the game harder, but not better/funnier.

Great art. The gameplay is good but i guess the level get too hard too soon. Also, i was using a track pad on a laptop and it was really hard to control with the arrows and use the track pad at the same time. It would be better if i could control the character with WASD. Just a minor thing! :) Good effort though!

May 9, 2015 @ 9:10pm

Cool game! Amazing graphics, even though everything is a bit small and its sometimes difficult to distinguish stuff and I had trouble finding where I was sometimes. Gameplay is fun though, having to fight against the lice replicating around is a neat idea. Combining cursor keys with mouse control isn't a great idea for anyone right-handed and is super awkward, unfortunately. Otherwise the game is fun and very slick overall.

Controls well, has a nice explanation for the zombie-like apocalypse, and is fun to play! Great job!

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.
