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

Chemtrail Madness

by zsoltbartok - Compo Entry

In Chemtrail Madness you fly your airplane to spray occult chemtrail patterns in the sky and generate panic for high score.

When you start the game you see the faint outlines of the pattern you have to create. Follow the lines with your plane and release the chemicals on them, creating trails. Be quick, your time is limited, and be precise.

Once the pattern is fully visible in the sky, the people start to panic, you get your reward and start spraying a new pattern.

Nice music!It's funny how instead of hitting the ground plane appears in the sky, but I suppose it would be pretty frustrating otherwise. I missed some sort of challenge, something like you have to score atleast this amount of points in this time limit to pass this level. I've got nothing to criticise other than that.

At its core, the idea was great and the game was solidly built but there was still something missing to make it more fun and challenging.

Nice take on the theme. Very clever. Needs some polishing but good job regardless. :)

Nice game, and theme is pretty solid.

Pretty fun concept. Would have liked to see more carrying over of panic from one stage to the next, so I can witness the effects of the panic building up.

Interesting. The music is nice but gets too repetitive fast. Also I think it's a bit too hard to trace the pattern exactly enough to cause panic.

I love the premise! The plane is a bit hard to control, though.

Good concept and I'm glad you made it so you wrap around on the screen, it would have been frustrating otherwise. Well done!

It's a cool idea, but it feels lacking in some way. It's still a fun game though :)

Very original! It reminds me of those stupid rumors about the Illuminati using chemtrails to spray neurotoxins on citizens ^^

Nice idea and fun to play. Best part is when you finish a symbol and everyone on the ground looses their shit.

I really liked the music as well, simple but really works together with the game.

All in all a good polished entry!

Fantastic idea and nice smooth controls. I got the hang of it pretty quickly and had a lot of fun. Good work!

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.
