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

Crazy Baker

by Hammer Games - Jam Entry

Hi guys,

This is the first time our team participate the Ludum Dare. This has been very exciting for everyone!

We started the game friday, making the arts of the game, developing design, and programming the mechanics.

First we had difficult in making the level, but we discussed carefully about what the game would show. After that, we made the characters and we discussed again about which animations are or not necessary to the game.
We are excited to show the results of this incredible experience, in make games for the public, in this edition of Ludum Dare 32, we are happy for having participated of this experiment, althought we are full of the university-related tasks.

Design: The design was made by the artists, we decided to make a baker against the rats who invaded his bakery.

Art: Making the arts was a challenge for the artists, because we had difficult in the first three hours, in decide what would make the game better, or beautiful, and making animations was quite fun after all.

Sound Design: The sound effects of the game were entirely made by our sound design, with his experience in this area.

Programming: The programming was fast, we decided to make the mechanics simple, to simplify the experience of anyone who wants to play our game, because our objective is to our players have fun with the game.

The whole experience was exciting, it was very fun in our first experience in making games for Ludum Dare, we thank all people who helped this project .

Thank you very much, enjoy!

Not a bad game, got bored after a little while but I assume that's due to the endless nature. Graphics are beautiful, music is great, and the theme is well used. Good job!

Great graphics, audio, etc.

Movement felt really floaty and wasn't enjoyable. You also had to be really close to the table but you'd also clip on it going down, which didn't really help the situation. There wasn't good visual feedback when you were clipping or weren't close enough to the counter.

Should be easy to polish up in a post-jam entry, and expand from here. Go for it!

Nice first jam game.

Wish I could use the melee bread hit attack on a separate button so I don't need to waste donut ammo when the rats are close.

I have to agree with previous comments, graphics and sound / music are really nice, but the gameplay isn't your strong point. The controls are a little clunky and there is a strange feeling to it. Good use of the theme!

Nice little game, though it felt a little sluggish. I love the graphics and the music :D

It's a pretty basic game but the graphics and audio are good. It could've been fun but the sluggy controls make the game somewhat cumbersome to play.

Really fun - kudos to the artists especially, great cartoon characters.

like @funisfun8 already said, the graphics are nice, but it gets boring after some time also because of the slow control of the cook

Apr 21, 2015 @ 1:44pm

The graphics and animations are amazing!
The controls felt very slow, specially when attacking.

Apr 21, 2015 @ 2:25pm

Great first jam! Loved the music and artwork. I also liked how you faded in the tutorial in the beginning...an often missed step that was really effective. Fun music too!

Apr 21, 2015 @ 3:00pm

Great art and great sound/music! Also a really clever use of the theme :)

Why is the counter set slightly on the diagonal? It keeps blocking the movement...
Also, the game got repetitive quite fast... I didn't fell motivated to keep playing (though I kept playing until I got score of 1090)...

Graphics and audio were nice, though. :)

Good graphics and music!, it have a slow start, good use of the different food.

Great graphics! The game ran a bit slow. Did not like the controls, the baker got stuck especially when moving downwards. Great work in such a short amount of time.

Apr 21, 2015 @ 7:20pm

Good art, nice music. The slightly angled counter top made my character get stuck a few times though. Also, it was too easy, even with the loose controls.

Graphics are nice, but careful if you animate a walk loop for walking forward and your character mainly moves sideways.

Apr 22, 2015 @ 7:35am

I'll basically just parrot what everyone else is saying. Sound and graphics look great, and I really love the intro. small stuff like that can really make a game into an experience.

However, the chef often gets stuck in the environment and the movement is very imprecise. Gameplay could use the same amount of creative flourish that the sound graphics got.

Keep trying!

For a Game Jam it's a great game! Basically just parrot what everyone else is saying too. Do a better gameplay, fix walk animations. That's all!

I want to buy this game on a google play or apple store! Congratulations!

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.
