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

I managed to get a score of 43! I like the dodging/collecting gameplay of it but it was a bit slow going. Not 100% sure how it fits with the theme, music is the weapon? I really liked the beat when you dropped the bass! Good work!

Best art 10/10. :D Honestly though, I really enjoyed the gameplay. It was a bit on the slower end, I played for what felt like 5-10 mins and got 3 base drops. I'd aim for a quicker gameplay loop, and maybe then you could even add a ramp up of the movement speeds to increase tension, and it wouldn't feel as punishing if the loop was shorter. I really loved how the gameplay changed once I got enough for a drop(). Switches things up and keeps it interesting. Dat fist pump tho.

I can't play as I'm on a mac, but I love the concept from the description. Looks like fun!

Very fun game. The building up to the bass dropping makes me tense every time :P

Awesome work!

Pretty fun little game. Managed to get 32 on the first try. I think that it could use a little more noticeable feedback from collecting good vibes other than just the score going up, such as lights or other audio cues (though I could have easily overlooked audio cues when my brain was focused on collecting things and enjoying the music). Overall it feels pretty polished, though. (Not sure how much of a weapon dropping the bass feels like, though...)

What CamRFWhite says. And it is a bit hard to connect the gameplay to the theme for me. But I really liked the audience and the music.

My highscore is 94, the game doesn't seem to get anymore difficult after some time so it's more like "how long can you last before you make a mistake", and I couldn't understand what the green lines indicate (and what's the difference between the effect of the drum and the bass on the gameplay).
The sound transition is good though, and I think the game has the potential to be much better.

Great idea! I would have loved to see more audio feedback when I picked up drums and the purple beat, like a small loop play

Could move off screen which seemed a bit weird, but otherwise good gameplay, great theme, liked the music.

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.
