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

SHAMPOO PLEASE

by napedia - Compo Entry

You think this is a game? Because this is hardly a game. *

We live in a world filled with ~unconventional weapons~ (of mass destruction)

Men and women of US government put their life on the line every day to defend you against dangerous quantities of portable consumer fluids at airports.

The tireless heroes of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) have been on the front lines for over a decade against a most unconventional weapon: SHAMPOO (in excess of 3.4 fl oz)

Take on the role of an heroic TSA agent, as you try to remember to check for shampoo.


* Seriously, it's hardly a game.

Either you are correct and this was seriously hardly a game, or I was missing something. Either way, it's a hilarious spoof and I enjoyed myself. (I blew it though)

I love this, as soon as I saw the title card I had to play it.. However.. Am I missing something? I can't seem to actually check for shampoo. I click the green bar and it's all over. Are there any actual mechanics or is that it? Regardless, this is a really impressive homage to Papers, Please. You nailed the aesthetic!

Hmm. Any other way out other than failure? Nice job on the graphics though. Nailed the look.

I wanted to like this game but could not figure out how to do anything (no keys or buttons seemed to do anything).

Apr 20, 2015 @ 5:21am

Seems like a funny concept but I have no idea how to play. I clicked all over and mashed every button. All I know is I lose if I click the green bar?

That was hilarious. I would have preferred more game play though. Even if it were more of the same leading to the same conclusion.

Looks familiar. Intresting. I should drink my shampoo before someone take it from me.

Started really great but it feels like you sadly didn't get to finish the game. Is there any other way to play than just pressing the green bar and immediately loose?

Shampoo is a serious business in this universe! Too bad there is no game, seeking through people's stuff seem fun. Paying DLC for new game is not!

Bwuahahaha! I love this! It's fucking terrible and I can't seem to win, but I keep playing. Great job man, I look forward to seeing more parody games from you in the future. (seriously. parody is your thing)

Only control that worked for me was Alt+F4, did you put any other controls?

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.
