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

You're Toast

by rosy_tucker - Compo Entry

Imagine you're a toaster who has fallen from your usual throne on the worktop, and are now desperately trying to defend yourself against the kitchen.

Sounds made with a guitar and by making silly noises. Graphics made in inkscape.

I think there's a bug where sometimes the frying pans just don't shoot broccoli anymore :(

Overall, the game is surprisingly addictive. The island counter and the lack of a reverse on the toaster means there's actually a fair bit of tactics needed to get a high score.

Also, jam toast is the least conventional weapon I've seen yet.

The controls feel a bit awkward to get used to but after a bit they seem to work all right. The music gets repetitive really quickly.

Nice game! Like the audio! Why on earth were the pans firing brocolli though? :D

Are the pans with eggs supposed to not hurt the player? After a while they just gain more speed every level... I was able to just sit somewhere while they surrounded me and rack up kills without getting hurt.

Graphics are great, sounds are okay... theme could have been used better I feel... good entry!

Good luck!

The ability to go backwards would be nice, and the AI was a bit simple (stuff lined up to die) but otherwise quite fun. Music was nice at first but quickly became repetitive. Didn't seem to be any downsides to just holding the fire key though.

Pretty fun games, but I like broccolis, why should i kill them. :( ^^
Anyway the graphics are really nice and the controls really smooths. The only annoying thing is that you can't go backwards, which make avoiding enemies a bit tricky. Also the overall view is a bit limited so you can only see the enemies at the last moment. Maybe increasing the field of view would have been a good idea.
Good game though, and the jam toast and broccolis are definitely not conventional. ^^

I liked the concept for this game. It's a creative idea and I like that the weapon here is jellied toast! The music felt a little repetitive, but overall it was fun!

I thought the game was well done overall and I think the decision not to allow the toaster to go backwards made the game much better. It would have been too easy otherwise. As it is, you could easily put yourself into a bad position if you weren't paying attention.

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.
