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 minnouu - Compo Entry

Rabbit - A game about a girl who can't get to sleep at night. She uses her magical stuffed toy as a weapon against the encroaching darkness.

Controls: WASD or Arrow Keys to move, [Space] to use the doll (you can't move while using the doll). The small enemies hone in on you, and they can be repelled by the doll. The larger enemies ignore you, but are sped up if they are hit by the doll's light. As the night goes on, it gets harder to avoid these foes...

My first ever submission to Ludum Dare. Hopefully I'm not biting off more than I can chew making a game for the comp on my first submission.

If the game isn't responding to controls, try unplugging any game pads you have plugged in. There might be a bug. Sorry about that.

Great idea. Think i need to crank up my brightness to be able to beat the later levels :)

As a side note it didnt seem to be responding to keyboard input, but that was because i leave my controller plugged in.

The game crashes for me when I hit Play or Instructions. I am on Win 7. Not sure how helpful this can be but here is where it crashed and call stack:

Cool game, just a bit too hard sometimes, especially when it gets darker ;-)

@ Jadernak Thanks for the crash log. It seems like it's having trouble loading the sprite sheet... If you're running it from the source code, see if in the "Properties" of the assets are set to "Content" and "Copy Always". If you're running it from the game, make sure the "Content" folder is in the same folder as the application. Not really sure what's wrong...

I wasn't able to interact with the game past the title screen. I was able to select How to Play but in game I couldn't move or wave my bun around.

Nice job! I had a blast laying this :) I died laughing when I found out how to attack. Really creative and great work!

nice work! I like the progressive difficulty as the time goes on. Having to adjust strategies between the small enemies and the large ones gives a nice added challenge.

Loved the idea of increasing difficulty with increasing darkness over time!

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.
