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

Love the style, and the intro was great. The game itself could have done with some spicing up, maybe some more types of badgers, or the umbrella could lend itself to a neat defensive move.

Graphics are very nice, at first I thought that left-click were a dash, but once I realized that it was the I survived for seconds. Just for me it was not much clear when I was receving damage, maybe is because I don't have sound here.

Awesome style, even with an intro, excellent. Nice work with the music and the mechanic, those damn racoons got their fair share of umbrella :D

Apr 20, 2015 @ 8:31pm

I love that the art looks scanned watercolor paintings. It's cute and funny. The only problem I had was with the sound: it's very, very repetitive and it gets annoying fast.

Very nice short and fun game. The watercolor backgrounds are really beautiful and well integrated. It's all well polished, not too hard either. Great jam entry.

Great graphics, although the camera was a bit annoying for me.

Wow nice art style man! Your gameplay mechanics are great as well, really liked the floating with the umbrella when aiming upwards.

It's small, but still great. One thing bothers me... Why the boob physics?

The load time was very slow for the web version, but it was well worth it! The graphics were awesome, and zooming around the yard with granny and her umbrella was a lot of fun. Great job!

Beautiful art, and a fun theme... Just would like that the camera better centralize the content, but nothing that harms the game.

GRANNY IS GONNA MESS YOU UP! Seriously though, the whole premise of this game is amazing. And the grandma looks like my grandma ('cept she doesn't bake pies).

Nice little game, with nice art and badass granny.

The game is quite great. The graphics are extremely stylish, the mechanics are really simple to pick up and yet rewarding, it feels quite polished already, which surprised me a whole lot.

Loved this. Really nice take on the theme and sense of mood. The art is so great. Pity some of the scans looked so pixelated, and would have been nice to see the sprites treated a little better so they feel at home in the beautifully textured world.

A great entry.

ALSO: RACCOONS!!!

Apr 24, 2015 @ 9:11pm

Very nicely done! Elle dessine bien la grenouille :)

It tooks me 5-6 time to finish it. I love the umbrella feeling, and the fact you can float in the air with it. Too bad no part of the gameplay take advantage of this move.

I love the simple games! Plus: Of course they ate my pie before it was ready :D

Great job! 4/5

First off, thank you very much for animating bouncing grandma boobs. I only hope that 1 night's sleep will be enough to forget that.

Excellent game, fun and satisfying. Music wasn't a bad but repetitive. Had fun playing, and felt I earned the win, and could continue earning it a few more difficulty levels up.

Love the watercolor style! Funniest LD32 game I've played. that angry granny's face with that music! :) Love it.

May 9, 2015 @ 7:17pm

Stunning graphics, the intro was especially beautiful and colorful. The game mechanic was fun, the music fitting and I must admit playing a granny is so satisfying XD.

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.
