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

Make It Rain

by musasabi333 - Jam Entry

Make It Rain is a game about a rich guy bribing everything and everyone.

HOW TO PLAY:
- X to make it rain
- arrow keys to move

It is my first Ludum Dare game, and I couldn't finish it in time, but I still wanted to share my take on the theme with you.

Game done in Unity 5, buildings and money done in Photoshop.
Robot borrowed from Unity Standard Assets.

TODO:
- Add people to bribe
- Change the robot to be a rich guy
- Add sounds and music
- etc. :D

Thanks for trying it out!

Cool concept, are you thinking of continuing it after the jam?

Well, it isn't finished, but I'm intrigued by the concept - was the mechanic going to be bribing people to let you pass by raining money on them?
It seems to go on forever when you run to the right.
There are also no platforms to jump on (at least none I noticed), and the background pattern makes it a bit confusing..
Jumping feels very smooth, with the camera follow and all, so good job on that!

Your robot and the way it animates is beautiful I just don't understand the overall aim of the game and why he's throwing up a bunch of money. The robot was really
beautiful though!

Liked the concept. Really funny!

The initial money speed needs fixing; The speed is absolute and not relative to your movement speed. Just kidding :)

The concept is interesting, but the game is obviously too raw :(

@lizard455
Thanks a lot! Yes of course, I'm working on it right now! :D

@natalye
I loved my idea so much that I had to submit it, despite the game was not finished. :D Yes, you are correct, you would rain money and bribe people. The money is limited and you have to enter banks on the road to replenish money. The level is procedurally generated without any limitations, that's why it goes on forever. :D Thanks a lot for the feedback!

@hawksley
Thanks, but I can't take the praise, the robot was borrowed from Unity's Standard Asset Library. :D The aim of the game is that you are a rich guy (that will eventually replace the robot when I find time to draw him) who goes his way, bribing people (by throwing money at them) and dodging taxes and IRS agents. :)

@MGhareeb32
Thanks a bunch! Glad I made you laugh. I totally agree on the relative speed, I was also thinking about it. :D

Be on the lookout for the eventual full release. :D

For some reason the robot didn't render for me.

Anyway, I like the idea, but I really can't rate this high as there's actually nothing to do other than run around and press X.

You have GOT to streamline your game making process.

@GreaseMonkey
I get what you mean, but the game wasn't finished because I started working on it on the last day of the Jam. :D

Apr 23, 2015 @ 9:28pm

looks like you were doing a unity tutorial but did not finish :) keep going :)

If only I could really make it rain.
I'm always happy when it rains.

Don't be disheartened that you didn't finish; we have ALL been there.

There were a lot of graphic glitches and I wasn't sure where to go, but the sprite of the player was really good!

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.
