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

Not quite sure what's so unconventional about that weapon.

My weapon is simple, but very dangerous! While you are in game it's killing your time:D

You should've put that in the game, what you said in the comment :)

It's not clear why your weapon is unconventional, but it's a decent little game :)

This could do with some instructions, seeing as it is unclear what is unconventional about the weapon or what the goal of the game is. That said, a good first game for the LD - all the core elements are there and I had fun trying it out.

Well done.

This game feels like an extension of the hunting parts of Organ Trail, which is cool. Looks nice.

I like how reactive it is with the particles being emitted when you shoot enemies ^_^

Love shooters and the time aspect. Nice Job.

I'm not good at surviving but this game has nice dynamics. I love these particles.

Apr 22, 2015 @ 1:46pm

The direction of the particles' velocity isn't uniformly distributed. That's why clouds of many particles end up looking rectangular instead of round. Try to figure out the maths behind this. It's a good exercise. :)

Good job for a first entry, but I didn't find an unconventional weapon.
And dude, what is the link between a 'man in black', a mole and a horseradish ? ^^
however, funny moment with this game !

The game has some level of fun, the controls are great, but it's off the theme.

Ah man the reveal of what the weapon was really got me

Apr 23, 2015 @ 7:17pm

Decent game. I liked the amusing variety of enemies. Simple graphics but they do the job, and the game is smooth and responsive. Not bad!

I like the cheeky twist of claiming it's your weapon killing my time.

The game runs well for a single screen shooter, nicely done!

Haha, loved the sentence when you die, that's a nice take on the theme!

Great first entry! Just add some sound effects and new enemy types ;D

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.
