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

Great game, interesting puzzle idea. Some levels are a bit too hard for me. Keep up the good work!

Intresting idea, good puzzles and nice visuals. Walking into corners was sometimes a bit annoying when you where chased so maybe it be you been a bit better if it was turnbased but it wasnt a real problem either.

Great puzzler, kind of like a more dynamic hitman go. I really like the challenge. Well done!

I like the clean visual style very much.

That last level was tough!
It was a decent game, could have benefited from better sound design. Animations and graphics were great though!
The level designs were very good considering the mechanic, though I would say that the mechanic alone wasn't too exciting, but your levels really brought the most out of it. Good job on that!

Weird idea, I like it. I didn't expected love could kill me so fast :D Maybe the third level is a bit too hard to start, but it's ok.

Aaaand hey, some women would be nice over there too for a change, hahaha. A stage for men and another for women, another with a mix of them... whatever!

Oooh, this was like being back at miniclip games or what that site was called back in the 00s :) Really good stuff.

pretty neat idea

Nice puzzles! A bit faster movement and shooting would have felt comfortable.
I like your graphics!

Cool puzzle game, a little slow, but quite fun. Love the graphics but missed the music. Great job, keep working on it

Love your art style. The puzzles were well designed, but I walked into the walls and got caught all the time which was annoying

Wow superb puzzle game! Your graphics look modern, I admit. How many levels are there? I finished four or five.

Great look. I found it the difficulty curve a bit too steep, but that may just be my lack of skill :)

Nice puzzles! I hear it is like hitman which I always wanted to try out so thanks for that. Not sure whose fault this is but when I tried to move with the arrow keys my window would move up and down... How do I fix that?

Neat idea, well executed. It would have been a little nicer if the movement was grid based, since the levels were all grids, would have helped smooth things out a little

Nice game overall. The WASD/Arrow controls just didn't work very well for the orthographic projection. It was a good thing there was unlimited ammo because it took me multiple trial-and-error shots to hit all but the closest enemies.

From a technical standpoint, the libGDX web player was much better than the Unity player and it ran in Chrome. That says a lot considering Unity is a commercial product and libGDX is open source!

Good job!

Good puzzles, but the iso view really messed up the controls for me more often than not :s

Really nice game! Loved the artstyle and animations, it looks very polished. The controls were the only thing that I didn't like, I kept walking the wrong way /it also happens irl, so maybe that's just me/

I liked the graphics and the puzzles were well planned out but the control scheme is rather annoying at times.

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.
