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

Do it for Wilson

by DoItForWilson - Jam Entry

In the beginning your life was plain... Then your life took a dive.

You are Wilson, you are trapped on an island, and you "might" have caused the plane crash.

Use your knowledge of attaching random stuff together with duct tape to form a weapon, and fight off hordes of angry survivors until you can build a raft.

Every day another rescue plane crashes, providing more resources, but more survivors are on the island. Good luck Wilson.


CONTROLS:
WASD to Move
Space to attack
Left shift to sprint
Mouse to look around
E to pick up items and use the crafting table

Argh, I forgot to add that you can pick up weapons and use the crafting table by using E

You should recognize the crafting table, it's in your camp.

And the goal of the game is to collect the things necessary to build up your raft (the list is displayed next to the raft in your camp as well ;-) )

Good luck with everything !!! Have fun !!!

Very nice graphics and animation, but I was very unsure of what to do!

Nice use of the 3d engine there, but what the ***k am i supposed to do ? :-)
You should add some tips on your game to help and guide the player, at least at the start of the game.

Not sure what happened there, but it caused my system (Mac/Firefox) to crash very hard. Equivalent to a BSoD on Windows.

It was difficult to find the supplies, as well as try and attack the hordes of enemies without getting hit. However, I liked the graphics as well as the addition of a day/night cycle.

@TimBeaudet The game breaking bug is being worked on as we speak, and a new build will be uploaded as soon as possible ;-)

Hilarious run cycle and sound effects! Very intense graphics and crafting system! The controls were a bit clunky though.

king of fun game, the visual are good

Apr 25, 2015 @ 12:06am

Loved the art. Had a hard time figuring out what to do. The mouse was really sensitive (at least on the web version)

Apr 27, 2015 @ 1:47am

Hard to tell if I'm being effective, but It looked nice and felt solid.

I'm kind of confused on how to craft weapons, and what combinations work. Maybe you can post some sample combinations? Also a sound effect whenever I hit would be nice to hear so I know i didn't miss. Great graphics. Great audio. Cool concept.

Good concept. I couldn't find anything that can be picked up and used for crafting, and when I wandered too far, I couldn't even find my way back to the camp. The art and music are very good. Survivors are kinda idiots, the just stop moving and start running in place after a short while.

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.
