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

KittenCleanerTD

by Saymon - Compo Entry

Here it is, the beginning of my ludum dare participation, and my first ever game jam !!

So in KCTD you must know four things, the cats must be cleaned before they enter the house, you have to spray water then add soap and finally dry them, but don't forget to build pumps, it's what refill your turret's ammunitions !

I like the idea of not having regular health bars for the critters in a TD game, but three steps in the process might be too much, maybe that's just me though.

It seems I can't lose health either, even though I don't clean the cats properly.

Congratulations on your first LD by the way =)

Looks amazing!
BTW, I've made TD too:-)

Wasn't entirely sure what parts of the game were functional. The sprayers always seemed to focus on the front-most cat and only starting to spray the other cats once the first was out of range. The dryers also seemed to run 'out of ammo' after a second. And finally I didn't seem to lose any lives even when dirty cats reached the threshold.

Good work, but could've used some instructions :)

A little confusing to start with, a key might have been a good addition, but once I worked out what was what it was good fun. A good addition to the tower defence genre! Great work for your first LD, it's mine too!

A little tutorial would be handy. You just can't tell what to do. The idea itself is nice though.

The application "KittenCleanderTD" can't be opened. On OSX 10.10 :(

Great game!! It's time to get back the Internet power from the Kitties empire.

You should add tool tips for the things you can build(how much they cost, etc.) You should also have scaled the game with the resolution or locked it to one resolution if you don't know how to scale as to not see the background.

Congratz on your first GameJam. I remember not even finishing the game at my first one. Great job!

Interesting concept and this game has Kitten!
Well done! :D

It just is a little confusing in the beginning.

Somehow I didn't lose any lives, no matter what happened o.O
Information about range and abilities of the towers would be nice. The concept is interesting though :)

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.
