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

UnconventionalWarfare

by NaKolenke - Jam Entry

A nice little town. Three old friends decide to fire it up, burn it down with all inhabitants, policemen and soldiers, and get out of there alive, by defeating big bad boss.
Yes, the game has an end.
Good luck.

IT'S GREAT! Very fun game! One thing, the mouse cursor was black. Is that on purpose?

I liked the difficulty curve. Wish the camera were zoomed further out.

Couldn't win even after several tries. The tank always seemed to get me at 6 - 8 thousand points :(. Interesting music choice and the flamethrower was quite satisfying.

ungarischeziegenspielen,(how do you even pronounce that?!), thx and nope, it is not a feature, it's a real bug. I will fix it after getting home.
joaovitorbf,thx)
chaosed0, we thought about it... well, trust me, it wouldn't be so fun:)
nassi, i'll just leave here a translated version of one of our skype dialogs a few hours ago.

dev1: Had you beaten the game?
dev2: I thought, you had beaten it, you were working on a last boss and polyshing.
dev1: Well, we have a problem...

This was fairly amusing. I personally would like to have the camera zoomed out further.

I had more fun setting fires than I should have.

Crazy game! It's fun to run around setting everything on fire. Got trapped by a bunch of cops near a burning car and died horrifically.

hahah, that music. i wish you would have added sfx for the interactive pieces (shots, hits, etc.) reminded me of a sos game like mcpixel.

Well, fixed the cursor and the camera problem. Uploading.

Oh yeah, the balance is also fixed.
It is completable now.

Unable to win, but had a lot of fun! The soundtrack was lovely set next to a town going up in flames. It was nice to be able to set just about everything in sight on fire as part of gameplay.

I think it' a good concept, but the hero could have more details.

Sure are a lot of dogs in this town. I love how the police officer scream just stacked and played over and over again and turned into one hideous wall of sound. 10/10

Apr 21, 2015 @ 11:34am

Thanks to everybody!
honosstoa, we are the guys totally incompatible with drawing)

Tried the updated build a few times, but still couldn't beat it. Got a bit over 8000 points though and the music did change so I guess I was somewhat close to the ending.

It's pretty funny how the trees seem to be the only thing you can't burn :P.

Well...
We made it more easier. Could get to the final boss from the first try!
Uploaded!

At first one of the colleagues said: We should make a GTA1 style game. I said no... why? And you made it! Great! :D

Yes my flamethrower buddy! Our flamethrower games are the best! Testing mine ...

Apr 22, 2015 @ 12:48pm

I guess the only way to describe this is 'immense'. The music really added to the atmosphere, good job.

Nothing like burning down a town to some nice relaxing music, lol. Good work!

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.
