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

Hi, I had the controsl problem on the embedded but it worked fine on the dropbox link. Pretty cool, but lacking in some UI imho, like a gauge to show you how strong your jump is going to be. Also, you should reset the player speed when respawning, because it makes it harder to understand when you die and insta-respawn flying.
Anyways, pretty cool :) Nice music also!

I had trouble getting the game to work; it seemed like when the rainbow collided with the chicken the game threw a bunch of errors. (This was in the web version.) By the way, I think you need to link to the HTML file in your Dropbox so the user doesn't have to download a zip. Nevertheless, the graphics are really cheeky and adorable, and I love making the rainbows! Great concept.

Could use some love on the UI, but toher than that great game. ALSO YOU USED THAT SONG. I love you forever!

Hey, just a note: using a song you did not make yourself is not allowed in the compo.

Runs fine on Linux under Wine, and I love the art style. The game could use WASD controls as well, though; You can only right/left with SD, while you can also jump with the arrow keys.

Chrome is blocking download due to suspicious content :(

Hard to control the character and I got stuck in trees sometimes, but catchy music and fun. :)

The controls were a bit unresponsive at times but aside from that the gameplay was refreshingly fast-paced and fun.

Fun game and nice graphics but the controls are very weird and I got stuck in trees multiple times too :(
Nice work though!

Just a heads up, I don't think compo entries are allowed to use premade music. Jam entries can, however. Sorry if I misunderstood what you meant.

I got stuck behind a tree when landing on a platform. Also, trees don't seem to count as platforms so the rainbow did not reset.

The jumping is kind of fun, but I feel like it needs to charge faster and there should be some sort of visible indication when you reach max so you know how long to hold the button down.

I think you can change your category to "jam" instead of "compo" by the way. A lot of compo games don't even have music because people run out of time.

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.
