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

Taggit!

by jfraser - Jam Entry

Run around, tag up your school, cost the most damage.

Controls: Main character will follow the mouse, get close to visible walls and click and you will tag the wall with your spraycan.

Tag as much as you can before getting caught by the police!

The more tagging, the more damage done to the school.

Fun but I'm terrible at it. The cops were hard to lose once they started to come after you.

Haha, I had a lot of fun with this. I like how you made the cops kinda continue on your path when you make a quick turn. Made it fun to pull off little moves to evade them and sneak in a few clicks on the wall.

I like the idea behind this game, nice little time waster but there is just a couple of things that let it down for me. One is that you can't really lose the enemies, which means it makes tagging extremely difficult to do. Secondly, the collision on the walls seems weird, so I feel like I get stuck when I shouldn't.

Other than that it's pretty good game! :)

Man, the police chase you down even before you start tagging. They're just haters man.

Nice game :) I like the art, it's simple and clean.

Pretty fun but I can only get about 200. I wish the game were in the middle because I clicked on my Bookmarks a couple of times haha. I love the music after you get going!

This was fun once I figured out how to play. Found it really hard to stay away from the police.

Would've been nice if the cops moved based on vision instead of trying to reach you wherever you are. Neat concept though, good work.

Cute little game! It feels well-rounded, although a little difficult. I love the concept and the graphics.

Simple and efficient concept, but I agree, the cops are hard to loose!

Thought the idea was good, but I think it would have been much better with a WASD/Space control scheme than a follow-the-mouse click. I thought the music went with it really well though. I also think it should have had a larger screen size.

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.
