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

Zombie Slaughter

by Timm638 - Compo Entry

Hello,
this is my second Ludum Dare and probaly the worse one of both, because of a engine change, so expect a bad quality.

Instructions:
1. Take Item from Crate
2. Go over Zombie and hold Mouse Butto
3. ...
4. Go to 2

I will read the comments and will make a Post-Compo Version.
List of currect recipes:
- Your Iventory is your crafting bench. You must only have the items listed in the list in the inventory to work:
1. Gun + Sprinky + Chair = Chair Launcher
2. Duct Tape + Sprinky = Barbwire, use it to damage zombies when they damage you.
3. Flashlight + Magnefying Glass + Duct Tape = Laser Launcher, Starter Weapon

I really tried to get to craft something, I got a round thingy that I used without knowing what it actually did.
But damn, these zombies take forever to kill :/

The zombies take so long to die with the first item :( it took me quite a while to get my second item aswell. The chair is a fun addition though :)

The zombies have WAAAAAY too much health and the crates need to come faster. I ended up with 2 things (i think #2 was a buzz saw?) but it disappeared as soon as i switched to it.

I think some feedback (graphical or auditory) when you hit zombies would be good. Only after shooting really long I noticed I killed one, and that you actually can do that.

The zombies are a bit too hard to kill - some kind of indicator of how close they are to death would also have been nice. A zombie spawned right on top of me when I killed one of the zombies, and as I couldn't outrun it, and it took too long to kill it, I died without having much of a chance :-)

The zombie are super hard to kill but eventually you can just keep on going round and round to kill them, gets a bit boring after a while since there aren't many varieties and not many things to do. Nonetheless, it is quite fun to kill zombies :)

This game has potential, but it isn't much right now. Could be really fun though!

there's really not that much here yet, so much more you could have done with this.

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.
