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

Unconventional Butts (WT)

by seraphki - Jam Entry

------------------
What the H E double hockeysticks is this?
------------------
Just a silly little rock/paper/scissors positional king of the hill kind of game.

------------------
What do I do??
------------------
Attempt to shove the other players off the gameboard by bumping into them. Collisions result in one of the players being forced backward, depending on what faces collide.
Butts > Lips, Lips > Hand, Hand > Butt.

------------------
What are the controls?
------------------
Player 1 will use WASD to move and Q/E to rotate.
Player 2 will uyse IJKL to move and U/O to rotate.

------------------
A note from the creator
------------------
Hello friends!

Unconventional Butts (working title, as usual) didn't make it much past 'concept' phase. It's my first (semi) completed 3D game, and first unity game in general, really. All smiles and self-high-fives over here. Lovely learning experience.

Game only has placeholder art and no sound, so apologies for that. It's also missing an endstate and there's nothing stopping you from shoving a player onto another player's space and I really could go on but I don't think I will. Long story short, there's a lot of stuff that I wanted to do and didn't end up doing because of time.

I hope you enjoy it anyway. =]
Cheers!

PS My AI are very stupid, I only had time to give them enough intelligence to not wander off the board. I suggest playing with another human if possible. Throw in computers as tushie fodder.

Goofy fun game. real straight forward. The little dialog between the players is just fantastic :D Would be lots of fun with a player2, for sure!

HA! I love the twist on rock/paper/scissors, very fun little game :P Some audio would certainly add to it.

Rock paper scissors mixed with the push-out game. Surprising mix for a pretty fun design! Other areas need to help make it more polished.

Apr 21, 2015 @ 3:28pm

It's difficult for me to imagine what the game would be like, if it was more polished. I hope that next time you'll be able to submit a more complete game. Never give up! :)

I like the flavor text for various hand, butt, and mouth interactions.

Ohh, I haven't somebody to play now, but I played a while against the computer hehehe. Although you couldn't make everything that you wanted, I liked the concept and it's a pretty funny idea :))

This is pretty funny. I had a little trouble understanding what was going on, but running around and mashing keys until things fell off was good fun.

Apr 23, 2015 @ 4:50am

pretty fun and original. I like this one.

Awesome idea, was a little hard to know what side I was using due to the camera.

Thanks for your comments everyone! =D
As for the camera, giving control when local multiplayer is a thing might make for some troubles. I'm hoping that when I get something besides placeholders in there, I can be more obvious about which way the cubes are facing.

Hilarious! Never knew rock paper scissors could be so fun, or funny.

Amazing game. Two-player in person works great. Very good fit for the theme. Stategy and action. Sometimes it was hard to see the backside of the cubes

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.
