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:


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

by John Vanis - Compo Entry

As a result of the experiment was a virus that turns people into zombies. All infected, the hope of salvation almost no but then to help in the fight for survival comes to hard rock!

Dude, check out your URL, because it says that your game is under judgement... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Cool story and funny animations. Check mine nearly the same idea :-)

For a game that was about music, the audio quality didn't seem all that great. Neat little game though, interesting mechanic.

No idea of controls, nothing in game, in description, no idea about mechanics :(

It's an interesting experience, however I expected better sound quality. All the button mashing just results in a loud noise and it does not matter which button you press at all. These are a couple of things that take away from the experience.

With that being said, I believe you've made a good game and you've spent a considerable amount of time in it, thank you for your entry. Keep up the good work!

- I kind of like the little intro cinematic.
- It took me a while to figure out that with 'button 1', the actual '1-button' was meant. Not sure if that should be clarified further or if the problem was on my side.
- It's a shame that, for the mechanics, not only does it not seem to matter which button you press, but only spamming one button seems to actually work better than varying.
- Metal does somehow seem appropriate to fighting zombies with, though :-)

Nice idea and presentation! I enjoyed watching the intro cut-sceen one time. But after browser restart I would have enjoyed being able to skip it the second time. Didn't fully grasp the gameplay (I mangled the buttons randomly and seemed to win), but it seems like a very interesting basis to build on. I hope you'll continue develop it, you seem to have something interesting coming up here :)

First of all:
The scenes: Amazing!! One of the best cutscene-games this LD!
And of course, the humor: Truly amazing!!
I really enjoyed playing this game! :)

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 ( 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.
