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

Bunny Attack

by texdata - Compo Entry

this is my entry to ludum dare #32 compos

a mouse button masher of poor bunnies.

I started from scratch without any code base just to see where it will take me and of course I changed direction as I went along. At first i wanted to do a laughing game where a weapon would be a feather and player should use it to laugh to the death himself, then i found out i can not laugh for sound effects and as i was working on song it came out something completely different and inappropriate for laughing game. At that time I still had no idea what the game will be about so i said lets make a cooking game where you mix a dish to poison your lover. Well that did not work out neither because i am a lousy cook let alone the artist to draw spaghetti, so i was stuck with tons of spoons and utensils for cooking.

Then i decided i should make a music/rhythm game, uf ... but for proper music game i should do some sound analysis, and for this there was no time. so i decided that a cook and his associates should dance to music and use the cooking tools to defend from the evil bunny that i found old children colouring book, took it out, used scissors and coloured it then took the picture of it and used it as an icon and since I kind a like things flying against the player this is what it came out. I hope you enjoy the game it as much as i enjoyed making it.

It has one song, one sound effect of squeezing paper, some mocap i did Sunday morning with a massive hangover I would not recommend to anyone, so please don't laugh at me dancing. i accidentally posted a slo-mo video on my facebook and laughing there should be enough :)

Most of resources are loaded from streaming assets so any one can extend available tools for a chef cook. Just add a .png and add a line in .txt file along with some parameters. The parameters are there but are not really used anywhere except as text on cards. Files are read at the begining of the game, loading from streaming assets is probably the only thing reusable from this project, everything else is a put-together mess i don't understand. All motion captures files are included in unity project along with some walks and runs that i planned to include but later changed my mind. The stick man is a simple plane, binded to skeleton and then used as mecanim character in unity. Time working on a project is around 20h, i had things to do and people to see, weather was nice and kids were playfull.

there are linux, osx and windows builds at

http://secretiondevs.itch.io/bunny-attack
along with unity project sources in Unconventional Weapon.zip

till next time

The webgl is not working. I have the following error:" An error occured running the Unity content on this page. See your browser's JavaScript console for more info. The error was:
uncaught exception: could not load memory initializer Release/webGL.html.mem". Tested with firefox 37.0.1

I can back that up - WebGl is definitely loading for me and I have had it in the background loading for 10+ minutes...

Somehow the Unity Web Player did not launch in Firefox, so I got the Windows DL Version.

Nice Game, quite hard to hit the rabbits sometimes. Unfortunately I did not see the difference between a Tool and a Utensil, and what impact they had on the game. Other than that, it was fun :)

WebGL does not load.

On the Linux version I cannot open the "Tools" window, I get an error that says it could not be loaded.

Will not rate, since I could barely play it, and it was fun from what I saw.

i also got the same error on Chrome, both with the embedded and direct link options. "could not load memory initializer Release/webGL.html.mem". Perhaps you're missing that file from your upload?

Smashing stuff as a bunny is fun.
The interface felt 'too big', and there was some perks stuff that did not work.
I expected other music when a rock'n'roll bunny mama was mentioned.

Those are cooks? I thought they are guitar-head people :D

Pretty fun game to play with a great soundtrack. And those are some sick dance moves dude!

Apr 20, 2015 @ 4:14pm

Quite a different game and a fun use of "unconventional weapon"! :)

Loved the 3D, and was there a reason for having the people dancing around the player?

Good luck! :)

haha funny chars, music is nice too, webgl did not work here, so I played on Windows.

A pleasant game, but I wish there were some kind of win/lose condition. The movements could use some tweaking since the gameplay really doesn't suit the tank-style controls.

Cute bunnies though =)

Threw up an error, but looked fun.

Would it perhaps be possible to get a Unity plugin build as well? The WebGL export is problematic, and enabling NPAPI is simple enough in Chrome. And it won't be until build 45 when it is actually removed.

This is really cool, the idea is great and the mood feels right. I just wish it was less linear and gamey you know like I feel you could have done something really weird!

Apr 22, 2015 @ 8:05pm

Oh no! I commented on the wrong page. SORRY :)

Apr 24, 2015 @ 11:16pm

Awesome :) I love the dancing

WebGL didn't work for me, but I was able to download it on Windows and that worked out.

Liked the color scheme you went with and the mad bunnies :)

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.
