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:


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

Our Unconventional Weapon: Getting a song stuck in someone's head

The game is about someone wandering around listening to their music and whistling along. As they whistle they get the song stuck in the head's of people near them. When someone else gets your song stuck in their head it enrages them, turning them red, and they chase you down to hit you. The game is played using w,a,s,d or arrow keys. There are 3 levels and each has its own goals.

All music is from
All art is by k4rl0r (couldn't figure out how to link to his profile)

Nice game! Did you make the graphics yourself? Cool! The song actually got stuck in my head and I sang the song out loud. Nice job!

This is amazing. I absolutely can't get enough of it, it's so fun to play. Great scores down the board.

This game is made really well - very polished. The graphics were quite fitting, and set a nice mood. I got stuck in between objects a few times, which was frustrating - but otherwise it was fun

Great game, fun, simple (i.e. perfect for Ludum Dare). My favorite I've rated so far.

Really nice take on the theme! The game is simple and fun to play, and the art and music come together and give the game a fun atmosphere. The only complaint that I have is some of the hitboxes seemed too large, resulting in getting stuck on some objects in the environment. Other than that, great job!

So many people are mad at me because I got a song stuck in their head! Really nice game! I enjoyed that it got harder the further you progressed in the game.

Damn it I can't get past level 2, and I tried 4 times, those icy lakes are tricky. Great idea, collision models could've been better at some places, in level 1 there was an opening between the bushes where I couldn't get through.

Nice game, nice entry. Good work!

Nice little game, but really hard to play! Had really fun with it! I like the idea of setting songs in heads and that the people run after you! It's a really nice game!

Fantastic concept, i thought about something similar, but couldn't put it into a real game idea. You found a great solution, fun, non-violent (almost).
Love it!
And you actually got at least one real life person infected with the song, hehe.

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 ( 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.
