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

I really liked the beginning with the letters but I do not know what to do after crossing the bridge?

I tried to download the OSX version to play but it was a .exe which can only be run on Windows.

yeah , sorry, only windows

Really interesting game, I love how it told a story (and how it did it.) It was fun, a bit confusing at the first but in the end it was pretty good. :)

Game appears to have been built for 64-bit Windows only, so I can't play it.

Odd little game. Very interesting presentation of the story at the beginning.

Is it actually possible to kill the wolf? Once I figured out how to attack it (I didn't realize at first that WASD and arrows do different things), I landed 20-30 axes in the wolf, but little changed besides the entire landscape being covered in blood and Red running in place just off the edge of the land.

Really liked what you did with the text popping up as we moved. A different color for the text on the bottom of the screen might be good, it clashed with the white platforms. Also though we used MANY axes, we could not slay the mighty wolff.

That was really freaking sweet. I didn't know what I was doing the whole time and couldn't seem to get past the part with the wolf, kept dying... lol. But I love the atmosphere, the gameplay was very fun, I loved the story being written as you moved and the graphics were sweet. The only bad part was that it was hard to figure out what to do, and I am not sure if I was supposed to be able to get past the wolf part.

Couldn't kill the wolf, all the blood and axes everywhere made the game lag too much to be able to continue.

Apr 21, 2015 @ 3:30am

Like others, I couldn't figure out if there was a way to get past the wolf.

Great graphical style, and a very compelling intro - you've got the start of something really good here.

Apr 21, 2015 @ 3:32am

I was also confused by the part with the wolf. I had completely given up on understanding and closed the game until I decided to see why "arrows" was listed in the description here, and then kept throwing axes at the wolf until the game lagged enough to be unplayable.
I really like what you did with the story being written as the player moves, and I feel like this had a lot of potential that may have gone unrealised.

I loved the spelling out thingy when moved my character. and the music is awesome. I would love to see that feature as a mechanic in a game. I got to the wolf and tied to kill him after filling the entire screen with blood my PC started to chug so I quit, I would suggest doing some object polling next time. the models look cool, that wolf is super scary

I like the music, gave it quite a nice atmosphere. I couldn't get far, but I enjoyed getting slaughtered by the wolf.
Interesting idea :)

this is really odd game, but good nonetheless, it's remind me of a game with "little red riding hood" theme i played long time ago, i can't remember its title tho :/

Great, I love it! Part with wolf is unbeateble for me, but, still, style and music is freaking awesome!

Apr 21, 2015 @ 7:16pm

Good graphics and audio, but not enough direction to know how to play the game.

thanks

I suppose an axe could be considered "unconventional" when up against a wolf, unless the adrenaline kicks in :D

I wasn't completely sure what I was doing quite a lot of the time, but it was a fun space to explore. I really liked the tile-based map and the music is awesome. Nicely done!

Apr 21, 2015 @ 8:10pm

Really good. I like the "Tale of Tale"ish style (which is arguably a compliment) of a dark and minimalistic mood.
It gets kind of creepy but still staying simple. The idea of the letters forming the little red riding hood story was one of the best things.

The main menu is amazing!

Dear God that was gruesome, I was constantly spamming axes at the wolf and constantly getting bit and never killed it or died though, not sure if a bug or intentional. I loved the movement style

reiknight says ...
Apr 21, 2015 @ 10:34pm

I love the main menu :). Nice concept! As other people said, I'm unable to complete the game :S. It needs some improvements on performance.
Good job!

The controls were really difficult to move around with, and I didn't really understand the goal. I threw about 50 axes at the wolf and it didn't die.

Apr 22, 2015 @ 7:36pm

The story unfolding as you walked was a nice touch. The controls were kind of hard to get used to: button layout is one orientation, and world space is rotated 45 degrees. I couldn't kill the wolf...after many axes. Nice music and models.

So shoot axes at the wolf until it lags to much to play? I didnt really have any idea what to do after the wolf appeared. Anyways I loved the start with the letters. So awesome and flinging axes was pretty cool. I wish it had been more obvious what to do though.

Really great game and fun to play. I enjoyed the art style and level design. Nice music and mood. I hope you will expand this game because i would like to play more.

A little confusing to move around in. Had a really hard time figuring out what platform I was on.

The story mechanic is cool, but doesn't really work when you start actually "playing" the game as I was moving too fast to keep pace with it.

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.
