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

undo todo shmup with wewe

by freaknarf - Compo Entry


Ctrl to shoot arrows to move nothing else to play. You strafe when shooting.

The stupid name is for UNCONVENTIONAL TOP DOWN SHOOTEM UP WITH WEIRD WEAPONS. Be a rabbit robot.Kill humans with bananas nails and needles or cat's head and ham pieces or some other random stupid shit.

LD people are awesome.Seriously i'm tired good whatever would be good to you.

Seriously, this is very serious i better submit before the end only 20 second noremains wait ?!??

aha.
So i used :

GMS
Spartan
Gimp
Reaper+FLS (demo) but forgot to put any song in the game (at least it's quiet)
Chronolapse
Autotilegen
OBS

I did not finish the game intended but here the shit. With some more hours it would be some more fun... The debugging and level editing stuff is still in-game (a bit unusable without explication...try shift+F1) and as always i did not made good level design but built some stuff to buid levels... I never learn. Or slowly. Or maybe i'm ambitious and perseverent. I'd like to know what you think about it anyway !



edit : I fixed the gamepad issue in v1.01. Nothing else, this is still crappy and buggy as fuck don't worry :) Original deadline version ("1.0.0.0") is also on itch.io, and works "fine" if your gamepad is not connected.



cheers

Well, it's a start and the graphics are decent.

I was confused at first since the arrow keys didn't work for me. Luckily the xbox360's stick moved the character around but I don't think the controls worked quite as they were designed to since the movement was very erratic.

I first tried i with the keyboard, but I couldn't move. It worked with a xbox controller, but the game is very buggy. I'm sure with a bit more time this could be a cool game.

Thanks ! I'll check this, it's weird about arrows keys. Gamepad was not meant to work, it's just a piece of script lost somewhere that makes it respond i'll set it correctly :]
Cheers!

what the frick even happened. XDD
So I attacked that building thing with my rotten bananas...
And it started spawning millions of entities until it had no more RAM to use. That was odd.

Dodging weird stuff was fun while it lasted though xD myeah I like shmups.

I've lost twice then the game crashed, but I like the graphics and the gameplay is pretty fun.

Thank you guys ! i'm very disapointing with my entry, i tried to make it work more nicely since but i was a bit stuck on AI so i guess it's gonne be a bit longer than expected before a good patch...

I have no idea how to shoot. Is there any controls help?

May 3, 2015 @ 2:14pm

Graphics are nice but I just wish there was a bit more gameplay cause I ran around shooting but didn't really feel like anything was happening. Understandable though with a Ludum Dare deadline to submit.

looks cool not sure what it does though! can you release an .exe next time I don't like having to install stuff!

freaknarf says ...
May 6, 2015 @ 2:11pm

yep :] thank's a lot for feedback i may come back with something much solid next time but for now I would not recommand someone to play it sorry :)

For those who still want to try and have issues with keyboards, try to plug out your controller if you have one, this should do the trick... Thx guys!

Shooting bananas was a nice idea, but it didn't quite come together... I didn't have any trouble with the arrow keys though. When things came out of the building there was some kind of black/white border around them like there was a problem with blitting?

WASD keys worked, didn't know how to shoot?

freaknarf says ...
May 9, 2015 @ 9:03am

WASD ? ôô
no way ... Use ontrol to shot ! but you'll have issue if your gamepad is connected :] and the game is crappy.

The big thing that shoots a million things doesn't shoot while it's offscreen and I don't know if I can hurt it while it is offscreen.

I have a hard time telling what is an enemy, a friendly projectile, explosion debris, or enemy projectiles. When I hit an enemy there is a black square around the explosion image, and a zillion particles cover the screen if is it a white enemy.
It seems like the enemy projectiles have harmless trails, but they don't look harmless.
I have currently 5 enemies onscreen but they only shoot to the right and so I am below them and they don't seem to die when I shoot them.
1 hit death and installers are also not great.

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.
