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

Looks really nice but not all the fun to play unfortunately. The rocks randomly spawned on top of me on my first try.

Enemies spawned on top of me as well. Maybe consider some fixed spawn points and don't spawn there if the player is nearby. Looks and controls well, loads of potential. Would work well as mobile game controlled with accelerometers I think.

Looks good - very tough though. Keep at it!

This has some frustrations due to the asteroids spawning on top of me, but I think the concept is decent enough. Not sure how it fits with the "unconventional weapon" theme.

That said, it has a start menu, game play, scoring, and the ability to restart when you die. You took an idea and made it into an actual playable game in a short amount of time. That's an accomplishment you should be proud of.

Really hard to play but nice visuals.

Apr 23, 2015 @ 5:25am

thanks i will try my best to fix everything and i'll be releasing it as an android game as well as itch.io but and yea about the idea that suits unconventional weapon , actually the incubator is some kind of weopon that absorbs things so my idea is incubating those skeletons in order to get much souls as possible and hopefully i'll be able to fix the spawining values and add more features to the game .

Bizarre, but has potential in the vein of Marble Blast/Spectraball-type physics games.

The helpless skeletons are a laugh riot.

Apr 23, 2015 @ 12:44pm

hahahah thanks mate

Please export to Mac and Linux. It's just 2-3 buttons that you need to click, not that hard.

I like the idea, although the implementation seems rough at some edges...

I had a hard time navigating the far side of the sphere, mostly because the camera angle made it hard to see over there. Maybe tie camera rotation around the center vertical axis to the horizontal mouse movement?

The first time around I also got stuck on the side/bottom, and simply couldn't roll my ball back up the sphere. Intended?

I found it very entertaining. Very creative and funny.

I have to admit i wasn't too into it, but i think it's a neat start to something good.

Great graphics and music! Found it a bit difficult, but I like the gameplay mechanic.

Easy to understand, and nice visual design (I like the main asteroid shading and the abstract surrounding, gives a strange "deep space" mood). I'm not sure I understand your take on the theme.

Interesting concept, but as discussed elsewhere have a means of muting audio, as it may be played late a night and someone may forget to turn off the speakers. :)

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.
