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

Flavourish

by UannaFF - Jam Entry

In flavourish there is no food left, so there are monsters that have different tastes, the red ones like spicy things, the purple ones like sweet things and the white ones like salty things. You are the saltiest, hottest, sweetest chef there is.. so of course everyone wants to eat you. Sprinkle your enemies with tastes the others want so they eat each other instead of you.

Unfortunately I could only make a level due to technical problems.

Made with godot engine.

Edit: I took RoryD's advice to change controls so now q,w and e controls attack at once... and i fixed some programming errors of the controls so it's not that annoying. I also changed the music because it was driving me crazy(using jcgmusic generator). I hope it's better now, though I know it needs more fixing c:*There is folder with original and post jam*

Great idea!
But sometimes it seems like the jumping does not work ...

Jumping was semi-broken for me. I like the idea of turning enemies against each other, though it's a bit tough when there's only one on screen. I think it would have been much easier to play if q, w, and e just immediately shook the ingredient rather then having to load it first and then fire with r.

I had a lot of trouble with the jumping controls too :( On the other hand, you can tell you put a lot of love into this game man! It's just such a weird premise that totally fits with this ld's theme, loving it!

I like its unique graphical style, which actually reminds me of some cartoon series. Although it's about fighting enemies, I somehow found it to be peaceful. The game has it's own charm. Only the controls seemed a little unresponsive.

Interesting concept! I think it need a little more work but as you said you had technical problems and it's normal. Try to finish it outside of the jam. Add more instructions if you can or some feedback whenever an enemy is "satisfied" or not. Good job!

Nice! A little bug fixing and this game will be glorious. Good idea too.

Neat -- yet unique -- idea.
I got annoyed with the unresponsive controls, but still managed to play the game -- especially since there is only one level.

It needs to be polished but I like the concept and mechanics. It was a fun experience. It feels like this game would benefit from a nice color palette and more consistency in art-style.

Neat idea but a bit wonky!

That was. The single. Cutest game. I have ever played.

Interesting idea. Looks like control events block each other. So can't rotate when shooting, can't shoot when jump button is pressed (but can shoot when already in the air when jump button is not pressed). In general playable:) Good job.

Like the idea and graphics and music. Needs more challenge and action though:-)
Also, the cook can not only jump, but gravitate to ceiling, and the file hosting is annoying

Sorry, it didn't run on my Linux machine (fedora 20):

./FlavourishJam.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.1.0.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

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.
