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

Get back to work!

by john wasteland - Jam Entry

Its late and you want to leave work already, but your boss demands you to stay longer. Also, your office gets invaded by giant slimes. So, there's that.

Slay as many slugs as you can without dying!

------------------------

Single or Multiplayer using joypads and keyboard.
Every player has 5 lives, when it loses all lives it becomes unconscious. A player can revive another by standing close to it for a few seconds.

Use the mouse to select number of players in the main menu.

Keyboard controls:

Arrows to move, Z to pick up and throw items.

Hi! We're a small team of game developers from Uruguay. This is our first Ludum Dare.
We had a lot of fun, we thought of a lot of great ideas and we loved creating this game. We will probably participate in some other Ludum Dares, who knows? Anyway, here's us:

Rodrigo Perez - Programming

Very good idea, nice graphics, and i had fun playing it.
In last game i've been cornered by 3 monsters and can't get out :(

Fun little game, I really like the visual style. Could use some additional impact effects but I can pick up and throw a refrigerator at giant slimes... so what's not to like?

Fun to play, real goofy. Would be great to play with friends for sure. Love just running through all the desks!

Liked how physics worked!

Welcome to the Ludum Dare! Very well done. I'd be pretty livid if I had to stay later and deal with cleaning up the slime. The graphics and sound mesh together really well and the controls are pretty solid.

I liked it! A silly and fun concept. Maybe some more variety would be nice, but overall great!

Nice work! The physics and visuals were really impressive. Gameplay got a little repetitive, but good stuff!

the monsters were cute, at least as cute as a giant slime slug can be :)

Fun game and great effort for a first Ludum Dare. Thought the design of everything looked great. Did seem to get a bug where the death animation of the aliens looped a few times before they disappeared.

Looks cool. It's fun to run around and make a mess before the monster appears. Would play better with gamepad though. Why not use the default horizontal/vertical axis and fire1 in unity? Why force arrows and z key?

Enjoyable. I found that the monsters were often too distracted by my corpse to do anything.

I would rate this entry if you made a Linux build through Unity. (Unity Web Player is not available for Linux.)

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.
