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

Warigami

by 6x13 - Jam Entry

Warigami is a Retro handheld LCD inspired two dimensional fixed shooter game. The unconventional weapon is friendly fire. We made Warigami as 6x13 team for the jam. We sincerely hope you enjoy the gameplay. We do.

HOW TO PLAY

Move with LEFT/RIGHT Arrow keys. That's it. The aim is to make the enemy ships shoot at you and accidentally destroy the enemies on the other side. Avoid the bullets survive as long as you can. You need to reach at least 10.000 points to win. See if you can reach it!

Each ship in hitbar represents 10 hitpoints. So one ship in hitbar is dropped only you got hit 10 times. The game ends after you get 50 damage points in total.

There are three types of bullets:

Arrow "➤" deals 1 HP damage.

Striped arrow deals 2 HP damage.

Triangle "▶" deals 3 HP damage.

Love the way that the game speeds up as you play even though it gets slightly confusing near the end as so much is happening. Overall a fun game.

Haha the fools, they kill themselves. Nice game, nice homage to that handheld game and watch type games.

I really liked the style and the concept. The lives system is based on a certain quantity of shoots you take? Because sometimes I get hit and don't lose any lives and sometimes I get hit and lose a life.

Thank you very much for all the valuable feedback and nice words!

Wevel:
Yeah, that bothers us a little as well, the solution would be to decrease fadeOut animation times when game speeds up, but it had the risk to ruin the style reference to actual retro style so I decided to keep it the way it is for the jam. We'll reevaluate that in later implementations. Thank you.

randoman:
Actually each ship in hitbar represents 10 hitpoints. So one ship in hitbar is dropped after you got hit 10 times. The game ends after you get hit 50 times in total.

There are three types of bullets as well.

Triangle "▶" deals 3 HP damage.

I really need to write those in Game description. Thank you randoman.

Really liked the battery-powered minigame console look. Would be amazing if it had a timed soundtrack as well that intensified every thousand :)

Great job!

Thank you! We'll try adding that in later updates. It would really fit the increasing speed of damage and movement sounds.

Cool Game & Watch style graphics! Different images for each position would be great for creating the illusion of animation.

Looks like a great game. I would appreciate if you guys build a MAC or Web version, because I love shooters :P
Liked the screen shots and the desc though

Thank you!

felipeberque: I didn't have a Mac to be able to build it. I'll definitely try to make a build tomorrow.

Great concept and style! Just a bit confusing, but I guess it's because of the style, it was hard to understand what was going on xp. Nevertheless I was able to beat it!

Thank you very much! Yeah, it actually gets confusing when as it gets faster, but that was really part of the LCD console experience, so we didn't want to ruin the nostalgia by trying to make the the action more distinguishable than it was then. I still locked the maximum speed though not too early. It is great to hear you enjoyed it and beat it!

My current High Score is 45258 Points. We would love to hear yours!

I didn't have time to put the high score in the game over screen but will do so ASAP. Till then, sharing the last scores you've seen on screen would be cool. And you can hit "P" for taking a screenshot. Enjoy, and thanks!

This really felt like playing the hand-held LCD games I grew up with. Nice!

Really nice game ! But you need a healthbar in there though, because it is confusing. Maybe the interface should have been worked on a bit more ?

Taking a classic arcade style and turning it into origami was a cool idea.

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.
