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:


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

We're glad you liked it :).
We had harder bots at first but they were too damned smart...
Apart from pathfinding...

Cool game, nice jousting mechanics. Would like to see more bread types!

Great jams, great baguettes, what else does a man want from a game? Maybe an assortment of wine and cheeses.

Would recommend.

I like the wacky idea. I mean, a jousting duel with baguettes for weapons on bicycles, that's something!
I wonder how this game would look with 2D graphics, the current 3D ones work ok on a big screen, but not really suitable for mobile platforms.
It would be funny if you could grab more than one baguette if your opponents are too slow :)

This was cool! I liked it! It was weird riding those bikes though!

This game is pretty nice. I would like to play post-compo version :D

Ridin' bikes and joustin' with baguettes - what's not to like?

Very cool that there's a working AI :) It's difficult but fun once you get used to the controls

This is great. Cool concept. The pushing force felt a little too strong sometimes, like pushing hard directly away from a character by rotating.

Not really sophisticated graphics and UI seemed pretty awkward. AI behaved crazy sometimes, controls weren't very responsive, but I really liked the idea.

What is this? "You need a browser which supports WebGL to run this content. Try installing Firefox". I'm using Firefox...

@DarkGrisen Sorry you couldn't play in your browser. We have tested in different browsers, Firefox included, and never encountered an issue. It is likely that you should update it, so you can play WebGL entries :)

I apparently suck at riding a bike; I drove off the edge quite a bit. It was hard to judge where the edge really ended, given that the collision body and the graphics didn't match very well.

Hhaha, awesome! a lot of fun and pretty polished. I like the music a lot, it reminds me of the silly jams from the Katamari series.

Oh and for the record, the spelling and grammar mistakes from my compo Killipedes were all very deliberate o_-

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 ( 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.
