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

This was actually kinda fun and it was a surprising amount of content given time constraints. Not sure what about using colors in this way is so interesting but it was. The pedobear (?) at the end was kinda funny too.

Really nice controls. Nice weapon! Would love to hear a Sound. Good Job!

Great job! I was just playing along, thinking that the art and mechanics were great... and then pedobear showed up, and I couldn't beat it because I couldn't stop laughing. :D

The idea of the game is really great. The art is excellent.
Unfortunately, I couldn't reach the end of the game as I kept losing :(

I really like the idea to use colors as a weapon. The game mechanics is fun and there's a good difficulty curve. But it's sad not being able to listen to some music, I think it would build a great atmosphere!

This game was really fun, but I really was wishing there was some sound! Music would have made it really great. That said, I really had a good time playing, and I thought the mechanics of blending colors was clever and fun! Really an awesome game!

This was one of the best LD games I've played. Some music would've made it perfect, great job.

- While not easy, I still like the progression and patterns. It also helps that you stay in the current level instead of being bumped back to the first.
- I also like (themewise) that the weapon is different mechanically instead of just being a reskin of something 'sensible'.
- I got some trouble getting it to work (finaly succeeded on my work-lappy with IE), but I think that is mostly Unity's fault (not just the Chrome-thing we're warned about either...) I coudn't even get an error message out of the thing :-/

Best game I've played in the whole jam so far! You really know how to teach a mechanic through level design.

Simple mechanics, but wonderfully paced and executed. Graphics were lovely and the music track was fitting as well.

Great entry, there are lots of potential here :D

Fun and beautiful. Being a bit too hard, too quickly. Well done.

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.
