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

Tricking the Vikings

by MamuteTeam - Jam Entry

After the Viking Age and the invasions all over the Europe, some of those great warriors stayed in their old homes, other flew to lost islands around the world. They lived like this for very long. Not all of the villages could survive for too long, but some live until nowadays…..

A small clan have lived near Greenland for thousands of years, freezing, planning their comeback and now they want to invade the America!!!

You are a Magician, a Master of the Illusions, Tricks and the Entertainment, you shall destroy your besiegers using your hat and your cards.

Not bad, but quite frustrating. Enemies will often spawn right next to you, leaving you unable to react and making you lose immediately. Also, it seems you have a finite number of cards/rabbits that recharges after a while, and for whatever reason it doesn't reset when you play for a second time, so you have to close the game and start again to be able to start with some ammo. Plus, the number of ammo is not shown, so there's no way to know how many cards and rabbits you have. You'll rapidly get overwhelmed by enemies as the difficulty increases, and because your ammo won't recharge quickly enough there's nothing you can do about it.

There's also a bug, if you use a card to kill the viking that the rabbit is currently following, it causes a fatal error and crashes the game...

It's kind of funny that the menu graphics looks better than the gameplay graphics. I wish I could play as the mammoth... :P The audio is pretty good, though. Nice job!

My best score was 3112. =)

Thanks guys! We'll try and fix the spawning problem that autokills the player and any other problems that you guys report to us. Your feedback is very important to us as we are only starters and we really have a lot to learn.
@LegacyCrono, about the complaining about the graphics, well, I'd like to say that our logo have nothing to do with the game itself hahahah the game can't always follow the same type of art that the logo does. But thank you for the comment!!

Well done game play and graphics but it looks to zoomed in, it wouldve been better with a higher zoom and a stretcher view because some times I was on a side and got killed without never noticign the bad guy.

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.
