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

Paint Can Kill

by toomin - Compo Entry

Paint Can Kill is a 4-player multiplayer game about cats, brushes and paint. In teams of two, the players try to paint each other with their respective colors. If a cat is painted in two complimentary colors, the cat disappears and has to be called back by their team mate touching a red cone. If the other team mate also disappears, that team lost and the opposing team wins. Also: Enemy paint can be canceled out by team mate paint!

The game was made in 48 hours using Unity.

EDIT: ATTENTION! This game is multi-player only. You need at least 4 people connected to the game in order to play.

I wasn't able to get it to work.

I'm afraid it's a multiplayer-only game. You HAVE to have 4 players in the same room in order to play.

It looks like it would be fun if we could play without others!

Am afraid I can't get this to work. You say we need to have 4 players in the same room, connected. Any additional information on this? Can't rate the game without a way to play properly sadly.

4 Players? Oof. Is there even a server?

toomin says ...
Apr 20, 2015 @ 3:27am

There's a button on the second screen, after you press "Start", that says "Start Server". If no other buttons are visible, you click that to open a room that others can join by pressing the button that appears under "Start Server" on their screen, which says "Room Name" and then a big string of jibberish. Once three more people in addition to the person that opened the room join, the game begins automatically.

By connected you mean i need 4 computers in same LAN network? (Hamachi etc.) If that ill try to find 3 people!

toomin says ...

Nope, no Hamachi or LAN needed, just 4 people playing the game at the same time, with an internet connection (it's running over a Photon server). It can be anybody from anywhere, though of course the farther the computer the greater the lag.

It was fun. Luckily I use windows, but really since it's made with Unity, you should probably just build it for the other platforms, as well.

The controls were good, for the most part, and the mechanics were pretty interesting. Good job!

It's possible to try this game on a single computer by starting 4 instances of the game. ;)

Could you make a single-player or at least 2 players "mod" so we can test it? The art style looks pretty nice, it's a pity not to be able to try it!

Looks like it has potential based only on the screenshots. You might want to consider a single player game for the next Ludum Dare. Multiplayer makes things difficult to try out.

Sorry, this multiplayer concept doesn't work for jams!

Don't have people to play with, but I must say, I instantly thought of Splatoon haha.

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.
