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:


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

The Karma Mongers

by Pavel M. Dlouhý - Jam Entry

NOTE: Use Firefox or Chrome to be able to hear the music. Thanks.

NOTE2: Yes, I know, there are still some bugs... I will try to fix them all during following days.
UPDATE3 (5/6/2015): version 1.0.3: Added support for WASD controls!
UPDATE2 (4/29/2015): version 1.0.2: Bug related to wrong boos from player distance detection has been fixed!
UPDATE1 (4/24/2015): version 1.0.1: a) Bug related to occasional wrong bullet ownership and thus bad shoot detection is fixed. b) NPC rotation is no more dependent on FPS

We made this game as a team:
Antonin Charvat - music
Pavel M. Dlouhy - programming


CONTROLS: ARROWS (left, right, up and down) to move and MOUSE to use An Unconventional Weapon!

STORY: You are The Karma Monger. There is good and evil. Your unconventional weapon is to influence others with your beliefs. Shoot your beliefs on other Karma Mongers and enlighten the world or let the evil to poison you and stay in the hell (erm, on GAME OVER screen) for eternity.

GAME OBJECTIVE: Transform all Karma Mongers into a cyan color state (the state with very good karma).


Thanks for playing!

Feel free to contact us.

NOTE: Our game is based on Construct 2

It's not bad to say the least.

Simple yet fun. The game could however use some extra instructions, as I sort of struggled at first about what my objective was - what I was supposed to actually do in the game. The audio is also pretty good.

Thank you for the comments! @Liam :D Thanks. It is a good point. I will add some info about a game objective into description on this page.

Mhhh.. Strange but not so bad

@Nikteddy92 I added STORY into description on this page to try to make this game at least a little less strange for everybody who will read it. We will rate/comment back to all of you (soon).

The controls are a bit hard on a laptop. Maybe adding WASD/ESDF for movement would help?

A simple game but funny! I like to see something really as an unconventional weapon. Congratz! :)

Nice little game, good work! Wish that WASD worked for movement also.

Apr 29, 2015 @ 6:44am

Thank you for your comments. I will try to add WASD controls soon! Thanks!

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 ( 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.
