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

I loved the art. I loved the hacking even more.

Love it! The art looked great and the sound effects were very good! Not the most unconventional weapon, but still a great game overall :)

I really really like this idea. I would not mind if it was made into a full game. The Hacking was cool. Did not fit the theme too much, but still loved it.

The art was great, took a bit to figure out that the numbers would appear above whatever you are hacking. Great job!

Loved the art and sound! The hacking theme is not entirely unconventional, but it was well very done nonetheless.

Main menu could use an obvious "quit" button.

Really enjoyed the artwork and sound effects. Unfortunately (and I could be missing something) I wasn't able to walk past the first two guards. I seemed to successfully hack them (I got green check marks and numbers appeared above their heads?) but I couldn't move past after this. Seems like you are definitely on the right track with the great in-game instruction queues. It's a shame I couldn't experience more of the game ):

A really interesting game, really cool that you were able to get this concept out the door. The hacking was fun and interesting, though I swear I was behind the clock when that guard caught me trying to hack him, haha. Good job.

The art and sound are both really cool and stylish. I thought the concept of a 2D hacking stealth game was neat, and I like the whole "calling numbers" aspect, but I don't feel the hacking was quite involved enough to hold my attention.

The audio and graphics are good. It's weird how patrolling guards can move through closed doors. ;)

Pretty polished. Stylish, good stealth, only loosely fits in with the theme though.

"Hack the guard" ok

Whoaaaaah! The graphical style of this game is great and the choice of the gameplay fantastic! Nice interpretation of the theme, well done!

Lovely Lovely.

Uhhh... I liked it?

It's a good game, pretty solid for everything. I think it might've been too green for me? I don't know. Solid enough to keep me busy for a while.

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.
