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

Fleet Meat

by Destruktorrr - Jam Entry

Fleet Meat is a time-attack game where you play as Unity's lovable robot/part-time mascot, Kyle. Kyle doesn't like meat-bags (humans), and he's just about had it with their shenanigans. Help him beat as much meat as you can in the time allotted to get a high score!

Note: Hitting meat-bags into other meat-bags to get extra beatings earns you BONUS POINTS!

*UPDATE*
Made some minor bug fixes with the UI. If the UI shows up and won't go away (this has happened to at least one mac user), I apologize, but it must be an issue with Unity's Mac support with the GUI, since I didn't change anything between the different OS versions.

Nice work! Really cool graphics (love the reflections in the bots body!!!). the AI isnt perfect but i didn't expect it to be. Overall a good and fun game.

I found the controls to be quite tricky, and aiming at targets almost impossible.

Played this longer than I should have, nice models for the robot and people. Camera is a bit swim-y.

I wish I could say something bad, that ragdolling isn't funny anymore... but goddamnit it is too damn fun.

Hard to go wrong with a cool walking robot and ragdolls. Camera controls were a bit odd, and I kept walking out of view. Other than that though no issues

Pause menu was permanently in the way - couldn't play (Mac)

Pretty solid game. Camera controls are a bit clunky. The music really adds to the feel of the game.

Beat the meat while working in the office. No one noticed. 10/10

My favourite part was the sunglasses flying off the guys head when I beat him.

Nice assets, the gameplay feels a bit repetitive and it doesn't seem to have a lose condition from what I've saw

That was entertaining. Hey are those visual FX available by default on unity 5? It looked stunning! But there were some glitches with some of the "citizens". They would stretch in unethical ways :D. But this was awesome. Loved it. Definitely doing 3D next time.

Destruktorrr says ...
Apr 21, 2015 @ 5:37pm

@kidando Yes, the visual FX come default with Unity 5. They've provided a much simplified list of shaders, and most things work great with just the standard shader they provide (most of the shaders, including the main character's shader, used the standard one).

The strange stretching has to do with Unity's ragdoll physics. They don't always like high forces being applied to them :P

My mom caught me beating my meat...

Apr 23, 2015 @ 6:07am

I don't need gameplay there. I just want to hold shift and chill around :o)

I suck with the controls, but it gives me more reason to waste time at work trying to beat my awful high score. Fun game.

Pretty funny! But hard to control.

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.
