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

Not My Panties!

by Karai17 - Jam Entry

Not My Panties! is an innovative, award-winning masterpiece about a young, erm... "girl" who is being harassed by the track team at... "her" school. Their harassments may out "her" secret, so "she" must defend herself with "her" over-sized stylus. Yes. "She." >_>

This game has 5 normal stages + a boss fight and *is* winnable!

This game requires a GPU capable of OpenGL 3.0+ (2.1 if you have good drivers). If the game crashes when you hit "Play", it is probably a driver issue. This game may not run on older Intel GMAs. If it lags, we're sorry. We're working on optimizing our engine for the next LD!

Note: If you have a gamepad plugged in, it *might* cause random crashes. This is being looked into.

This game uses a slightly customized nightly build of the LOVE 2D game framework. This game will be updated to run on the next version (0.10.0) which will contain the features needed for this game to run. In the mean time, if you wish to run this game on OS X or Linux*, read the build instructions below.

Running the game on OS X or Linux simply requires you to rename the source archive from .zip to .love.

If you would like to read our design document, I have posted it here:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/12958391/Ludum%20Dare/LD32/Design%20Document.pdf

* Apparently this game runs on WINE under Linux!

Finally, if you would like to download the game from itch instead, you can find it at:

!!BUILDING LOVE3D!!

LOVE3D uses a slightly modified version of the LOVE framework. You can download the source form the following link and build it like you would normally build LOVE:

https://github.com/excessive/love3d/releases/download/0/love-vb-src.zip

Alternatively, there are Windows and OS X builds pre-built here:

Ye gods. That voice-over is almost perfect.

The game unfortunately crashed upon clicking 'Play' the first few times. Then I did not click the button again. Your UI was nice though.

While the gameplay felt solid and instantly familiar, the mechanics themselves were kind of opaque so I was just picking different attacks and specials randomly without an idea on what could be a good move right now. A little more info on what each move would do would have really added a layer of strategy and fun here.

The style or the subject matter are not really my thing so I won't comment on them too much. :)

"Cant run from a trainer battle" XD

The animations can be a little jumpy but that doesn't stop me from enjoying this game! Pretty funny and nice voice acting. This game is pretty funny and although not the most polished game, it has one of the best and responsive rpg battle menus so far. Great work!

Funny game and familiar controls. I can never flee?

Nice turn-based-animelike-pervert game

@jesterwilde If it crashes on "Play", it sounds like a driver issue. This game requires OpenGL 3.0+. It may not work on older Intel GMA chips.

@Docjekyll ᕙ(° Д°)/

@j_peeba Thanks! Yeah we put the % hit chance in at the last moment. If we had more time we would have spent time adding more useful information.

@RobotHoboDanceParty I love your name! Our voice actress had a blast doing those lines, I'll let her know it has been well received! Animations were choppy since we spent a lot of time fighting our tools :( Next LD will be better!

@strong99 The words of Prof. Oak come to mind, "You can't do that here!"

@@ccglp Thanks!

The fact that this was made in a 2d framework, and runs so well, is very impressive. I am looking forward to the 0.10 update, as it seems like you have done a fantastic job.

Good job on the voice acting, it helps making the game more humorous. Great entry!

Cute graphics, funny (telepathic?) attacks, decent voice-over... Too bad I lost against Panzer-sensei ^^

You sure reeled me in with that name and picture. Interesting choice to use Löve for 3D stuff. Your zip is missing the 32-bit versions of msvcp120.dll and msvcr120.dll though, but after I grabbed those from my Löve 0.9.2 folder it worked smoothly.

Gameplay was just me spamming Girl Power though, so not the most impressive thing in that regard :P.

Apr 22, 2015 @ 3:24pm

Haha, you'll get points for humor, but the game is pretty boring, and all attacks are the same, and some animations are broken.

Karai17 says ...
Apr 22, 2015 @ 4:10pm

@Windmill Games: Thanks!

@Dixbit That's Panzerkampfwagen IV Ausführung H-sensei to you!

@nassi We only had enough time at the end to do a bit of balancing, we couldn't thoroughly test it so it ended up having one reeeally strong attack

@SpringCabal Admittedly, the game gets a little old, fast. If we had another full day we could have done a lot more with animations to liven it up but what we did have was created in the final hour. ;)

I love this entry. Right off the bat the voice acting is hilarious. All the dialogue for the track team members is funny and ties in to their names. I particularly liked the Tsundere Track Star... Not that it was that special or anything... Then the boss battle out of nowhere? Great choice for the boss battle music too, it's totally not what you'd expect. As stated in a few of the other comments, the game does suffer from being repetitive but I kept playing to see all the dialogue and how it ended and I'm glad I did. This may be my favorite overall LD32 entry so far.

@Team Ex-Sword-Stential: There is a weird bug where having a controller plugged in may cause that crash. If you unplug it, it should work. We're looking into it!

The game have severe FPS issues, even if it claim 60fps looks like 10.

In the end the game is not fun or original and the setting add nothing different to an "unconventional weapon"

Karai17 says ...
Apr 22, 2015 @ 7:14pm

@MonoS: The game does run at a solid 60 FPS. The animations do leave something to be desired, we had to throw them together quite quickly at the end.

Apr 22, 2015 @ 8:07pm

I just wanted to let you know that your game made it into my list of top 10 games for LD32!

Game crashes when I press Play on my PC

Apr 23, 2015 @ 7:49pm

@Bashabookoos Sounds like a graphics driver issue. This game requires OpenGL 3.0+.

Tried it today, it was pretty nice !
I think there's a bug though : When hitting a pervert with the stylus, he gets propelled to his right and gets past the wall, before reappearing, standing normally, in front of me. Seemingly this didn't happen to anybody here.

Oh and I'd hug that final boss too.

Karai17 says ...

@Yoon: I assure you, that "bug" happened to everyone. :P

And yes, Panzerkampfwagen IV Ausführung H-sensei is so kawaii~ <3

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.
