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

Go Shoot Yourself

by TheScopelessOne - Compo Entry

The unconventional weapon that I came up with was that when you are hit by your opponents bullet your opponent die.
And because of this I decided to make a 2 player competitive game where the objective is to get shot by your opponent.
This does not mean you can just ignore to shoot however because you gain score from every shot fired as well as every time your opponent dies.
If you don't shoot for a certain amount of time it will shoot automatically for you and these shots does not give any points.
You can use keyboard and 0-2 gamepads (only tested for Xbox360 pads).
Good luck and "Go Shoot Yourself"!


This is the first LD I have entered and it has been fun :)
Just a warnig the graphics are shit XD

Added a Linux and a Mac build, both are untested so I hope they work for you if you don't have windows.

Edit 2 2015-04-22

For people not with "QWERTY" keyboards (or anyone who wants to rebind the controls), when you launch the game you can click on input and scroll down untill you see these controls (I will explain what they do so you can rebind them):

"Player2AltXaxis (+)": This moves the blue player to the right
"Player2AltXaxis (-)": This moves the blue player to the left
"Player2AltYaxis (+)": This moves the blue player to the UP
"Player2AltYaxis (-)": This moves the blue player to the Down
"Player2AltShoot": This is what button blue player uses to shoot.

"Player1AltXaxis (+)": This moves the red player to the right
"Player1AltXaxis (-)": This moves the red player to the left
"Player1AltYaxis (+)": This moves the red player to the UP
"Player1AltYaxis (-)": This moves the red player to the Down
"Player1AltShoot": This is what button blue player uses to shoot.

This input panel (although not these names) are default for Unity so you can rebind most games controls if they use unitys Input code.

P.S. There is buttons and stuff for the gamepad there too but change those at your own risk they are very fidely.

Edit 3 2015-05-03
Just remmemberd I have not mentioned what I used for the game.
I made it in Unity 5.0.1 and coded with C#
The sound is made with "bfxr"
And the art is default unity cubes(as you probebly can tell)
I used "Pyxel Edit" to make the desktop/explorer icon.

lol don't worry about the graphics mate. Not everybody here is a pro artist :P

The game's fun, but I've seen like 5 of these type of games this LD. ಠ_ಠ

I've tried this game against myself and I shot myself in the back. Gotta try this with another human being, it might be a laugh :)

Fuck AZERTY ?

Apr 20, 2015 @ 4:06pm

I'm sorry "marccspro" but untill I read your comment and looked it up I was not eaven awere of the exsistance of "AZERTY" I assumed everyone used varriants off "QWERTY" (beaing from Sweaden we do). The game was however primarely made for gamepads and I added keyboard support after. If I knew about "AZERTY" I would have tried to make the game work with it. But seeing how you are not allowed any edits to the code then at the moment yes "Fuck AZERTY".

Nice use of the theme. Definitely hard to get used to trying to get hit while not trying to hit the other. A single-player mode would have been nice though... Good work!

Great game. Can be a bit tricky if you play it alone ;)

This is an interesting take on a multiplayer shooting game. Trying to get shot while avoiding hitting your opponent makes for some fun mindgames. As it is, there's not really enough of a motivation to use anything other than the automatic shot; perhaps you could use some sort of obstacles that need to be shot down to stay alive? In any case, good work~

Quite interesting. Wish the interface was a bit more clear and you could restart before the match is over, but it's clearly a progarmmer-made game so it's understandable.

Apr 21, 2015 @ 8:11pm

Thank you for reminding me of restarting before the match is over Awpteamoose. That is something I really should have added and it is not that hard. :/ Oh well, it will be in newer versions if i decide to work on the game more. And regarding the UI, yes as you can see art and such is not my strong part XD

Very nice, but the button for 2nd(red) player to shoot is a bit awkward. I think it should probably be numpad 0. Anyway, thanks for porting to Linux!

Nice done. Took me a while to understand it. But competeting my friend was fun!

Apr 22, 2015 @ 4:03pm

Interesting concept. It's kind of like pong, but with multiple balls, which behave in a non-pongy way and the players can move horizontally and... I guess it's not like pong at all. It don't mind the graphics. This is a compo entry after all.

I miss AI. Nice idea!!

Sorry I couldn't download it from google drive - it just kept reporting that the page can't be displayed. Obviously, not your fault though!

Nice visuals effects) Also auto-firing is fun too when you play with yourself:-)

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.
