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

Good's Out

by KCrimson - Jam Entry

Good's Out is a competitive forklift driving game.

You have to be the first to reach a certain amount of points, while using anything at your disposal to sabotage your opponent.

It is 2-player ONLY. You can try to play against yourself but you might find it easy to predict your opponent.

It supports same keyboard play or keyboard vs gamepad.

The idea was that whenever you take something that should be co-operative and introduce a competitive element (like first one to 10,000 points), then anything can be used as a weapon. Your forklift, your precious cargo, maybe even the real life keyboard if things get heated enough.

Changelog>

Player 2 can now actually win (sorry player two)
intro screens now display in correct order
fixed issue with a specific box stuck in floor
standard box is now worth 500 points to make the game quicker

That is hard! Seems easier to just push crates to the square.

Great to find another two player game, was fun crashing into each other. Pushing crates worked best for me too, especially if its competitive.

Got stuck a few times, but had a blast doing it. Thought the yellow crates went to the yellow driver at first - but it didn't take long to figure out that wasn't the case. Lots of potential here, thanks for sharing!

Well, unfortunately I only have myself to play. Still, it's fun to play. The truck turns too fast though. The music fits the mood really well, and so does the art style.

Congratulations, my girlfriend hates me now, good job. I had fun winning, at least. We got a bug where player 2 got 10,000 points but the game didn't end. Neat game.

I had to borrow one of my brothers to play this (but of course, he didn't mind). Man, that was fun! One of the best entries I've seen thus far. The sloppy physics make everything even better. I would change the yellow items to some other color, such as green, as I thought at first that they could only score for yellow. But that was the only thing I didn't like about it. 5/5 all round!

+fun to play
+'sabotaging' is a good idea
+ funky racing control
- bug: forklifts can fly out
- accidentally skipped the winning screen

Lots of fun, pushing the crates around did seem to be the way to go. Liked the artwork, it's a shame I can't rate this entry on it.

Nice game.
Indeed it's easier to push the boxes. the need to be lock on the floor and prevent to be pushed by players. just set them to be movable when they are been carried.
Thanks for sharing.

I don't have someone to play with at the moment, but I think you did a good job on the forklift physics. On the negative side, driving around, I got stuck in a wall at some point.

Haha loved it, would be awesome if boxes were too heavy to push and if you could forklift the other player.

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.
