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 Rich!

by TurboCorp - Jam Entry

In the near future... MONEY can't buy happiness, but it can buy you weapons to kill your friends.

Use those weapons to shoot more MONEY at your friends to get their MONEY. If you run out of MONEY (you beggar) don't worry, it will rain from the sky. Yep, effects of the global warming and stuff.

You can dash your way out of that golden ingot, but you'll drop some MONEY from your pockets.

If you don't have friends, don't worry! You'll have MONEY to buy them after a few plays. In the meantime you'd like to defeat some remote control rich-o-bots and steal their MONEYs.

Push the buttons! Kill the people! Get the MONEYs!

Get Rich!

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

Player 1

WASD to move
F to shoot
G to dash

Player 2

ARROWS to move
0 to shoot
. to dash

Better enjoyed with controllers and 4 players.

For me I think it had a problem, because the low part of the screen was black.
Graphics are very nice, gameplay very good and engaging too.

Great game! I'll have to wait until the store opens to buy some friends, right now I'm playing with bots :P

The gameplay is fun, the art is pretty awesome and the music is very enjoyable. I didn't find any bugs on my playthrough.

Great work!

P.D.: Give us cheaper power-ups :P

LOVE the intro so much. LOVE IT. Fun concept!

Really fun, but couldn't figure out how to get the 2nd player on the keyboard to work.

This is probably the most polished LD32 game I've played so far. The intro was great; I just sat and watched it for a bit. The graphics were very nice, and I liked little details like how some objects would shake if you hit them, and you could pick up spent ammo.

Thanks everyone for the kind comments!
@petey, Use the period key on the keypad to add a 2nd player

A surprisingly polished game, guys! The intro is honestly the best part of the game, and you can tell you put a lot of love into it.

I did much enjoy smashing the plebes with my spare change. The dryer fund, if you will. This game seems accurate to my day to day life, kudos old chum.

This is a really great concept! Could be a truly kickass couch multiplayer game if developed a bit further.

I love that the player's ammo is also the player's purchasing resource. Maybe something like reasonably priced health kits would make the game feel more strategic/objective-oriented rather than in-your-face brawly (like it feels now).

I felt like the purchasable upgrades didn't really come into play much unless you were already down to only 2 players, at which point they don't really help to turn the tide of battle much. But really, that's just a balance/pacing issue. The core concept is really great here.

Also, the art looked fantastic and the audio was good as well.

Amazing! This could be a great online multiplayer game if you added a few game arenas! Good work!

Fun theme, and good use of the multiple player thing. I did notice a graphical glitch where the water particles of the fountain were visible on the bottom black part of the screen.

Fantastic intro! Nice concept! Would be a fun multiplayer game (I just had bots).

A really awesome game, would love to play this on a sofa with a few friends - not the most unconventional weapons though

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.
