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

SleepOver

by Dege - Jam Entry

Wake up Omarin, wake up!
It's really late, we need to go now!

Oh, your friends are sleepwalking all around the house, you need to wake them up!
..and don't get back to sleep!

Use your MOUSE to look around, WASD or ARROWS to move, RIGHT CLICK or E to choose your weapon, LEFT CLICK to use it. XBOX 360 CONTROLLER is supported!
Good Luck!

Are there only the two weapons? I could really imagine a lot more variety can be added here. Otherwise really solid entry.

Excellent entry! Controlled perfectly, and the gameplay was easy to pick up. Also, i appreciate this, seemingly, co-ed sleepover XD

Really fun game with awesome mechanics! I really liked it, but it took me a minute to get the whole yawn is health idea. Loved it overall

Maybe you could make the walls a little thicker because I was able to kill half of them by trapping them on the other side of the wall. But other than that, it's solid entry. I really enjoyed the art style and loved the music.

Fun and original.
Now that the walls are thicker, much more enjoyable.
Great visals and sound, and a concept that is appropriately silly.

It took me a bit longer than I liked to figure out how to restore awakeness, but I like the idea of using a pillow for the weapon.

I love the music but mine freezes on my Mac at the beginning where you click Begin...

Good idea! Fun to play and very cute graphics. Looks like a lot of roles were involved according to the credits :).

Great entry! really cool to see multiple levels and the quick and easy topdown 2nd camera for a map works really well.

The only feedback that comes to mind is to have the gameover state be less harsh and make the player restart the level she failed at rather than throwing her back to the start.

Hey, getting the spinny wheel of death on the Mac version when I click "Begin:.

I love it! That's an awesome idea! Alarm clock as mass-wake-up-weapon is cool, but the coolest concept is to use coffe to restore "health". :D Well done!

Really dig this. Great interpretation, great fun, music is outstanding and the top-down pixels are some pro low-rez and perspective. Bravo.

Pretty cool and cleverly designed, gives me kind of a pac-man vibe.

Really nice take on the theme. Feels almost like Hotline Miami for kids! For us adults though, it could've done with some more difficulty.

Great game! Played really well on a controller (kudos for support!). Great visuals and sound, excellent feel all over.

Finally, Mac version should be fixed now! Thank you for your feedback, and thank you all for the nice comments :)

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.
