Technically 133... one star was stolen in a level or smth... :nuts: But thanks. :)

Congratulations to all involved... this really was a thrilling experience. The end scene in particular was incredibly entertaining! I had a lot of fun figuring out who did what section... Ultigonio, Vegetal Gibber, Straightflame, and Fubaka's sections were all very stylistically obvious. Talps successfully convinced me that his portions were actually designed by Sergio Cornaga, so well done there. ixMarcel and Firecats sections were less obvious to me... good job creating a cohesive seamless experience there!

I did not find any secrets the first time around, but I look forward to trying to find them.

And Congrats to LP Chip on your 134th star!
I deliberately made some of those dialogues play a bit too fast to make it feel like everyone was talking over each other.
Well, then you can make it pause when up is pressed, for example. That would require employing good old wallswim trick, e.g.
Ultimately, anything's better than not being able to read what they're saying.

GrayFace, can you tell me where you found the void?
x1057y1063. And I just checked - it doesn't seem to be useful for speedruns.
Knytt Stories / Halloween Themed Levels
« Last post by pfrangip on Yesterday at 03:05:56 »

Don Doli recently asked for some Halloween themed levels, and I thought I would also post my list here for anyone else looking for scary/creepy/cute Halloween themed levels. I've put a short description as well as a rating. Feel free to post any others!

House Key(Healy): I dead the outside
(Rated G) Any fan of the macabre needs to try this disconcerting little level.

Race to the Pumpkin Patch (Healy): Can you make it to the Pumpkin Patch?
(Rated G) Juni must escape the monsters and reach the Pumpkin Patch.
This short level is cute and maybe a little intense for new players. The environment is solid and well put together, the tilesets work well, the music is fun, and even the path that the player takes has them revisiting screens in different areas. It all works together well.

Dark House(Healy): Hey, who turned off the lights?
(Rated G) This tiny environmental level by Healy is a bit spooky even if you're never in any real danger.

What Happened Next (ixMarcel & Fubaka): A save-the-world adventure
(Rated PG-13) Juni must come to terms with her past by putting together the pieces.
This level truly is an experience, and only for seasoned Knytt Story veterans.

The Outsider (Alamaster Moody): Based on HP Lovecraft's story The Outside
(Rated PG) This small level isn't particularly well polished but it does tell a unique story.

The Cursed House(Ania): Can you escape from The Cursed House?
(Rated G) This fun little level has the player solving platformer puzzles in locals such as inside a freezer or a fireplace. It's a fun twist on the classic haunted house.

It Waits(Eric Colossal): For Longer Than You Know
(Rated PG) Juni makes her way through the belly of the beast in this classic Knytt Story. It's vaguely Lovecraftian, has some tough platformer jumps, and a unique atmosphere.

Blue House (Grimwit): Level Contest Entry about ghosts. v1.0
(Rated G) This classic Haunted House level has Juni escaping from ghosts and running through invisble passages in the walls.

Caged In (James Vaughan): Can you get out?
(Rated PG-13) This challenge level is extremely goth and dark, with some mature themes.

An Evening Stroll (Pentavo Mapmaker): Go for a walk late in the evening.
(Rated R) This level features a lot of gory scenery and scary situations. It's also insanely difficult to get to the proper ending.

The Five Minute Hallway (pfrangip): A New Hallway in Juni's House
(Rated G) This maze by yours truly is based on an excellent horror novel by Mark Z Danielewski.

Curse of the Catacombs (Vegetal Gibber): Will you choose freedom or truth...?
(Rated PG) This level by Vegetal Gibber uses some excellent custom artwork to create a unique experience.

Late to the party (Vegetal Gibber): A short Halloween adventure
(Rated PG) This quintessential Halloween level is both fun and creepy.

The Little Gothic Doll (Velvet): You are a doll no one wants to buy...
(Rated PG) This creepy and somewhat depressing little level is nonetheless a classic.

Choice (TigerNDV)
(Rated PG-13) This level has very little platforming but a lot of dialogue choices and options. Near the end there is quite a bit of horror.
I deliberately made some of those dialogues play a bit too fast to make it feel like everyone was talking over each other. If I could show more than one text box on the screen at once, I would have made that section even quicker. I know it makes the text hard to catch, but it's hard to hear everyone in a crowd when they're all talking at once.

Though I admit, the word 'obsequiousness' is hard to read even when not at lightning speed.

GrayFace, can you tell me where you found the void?
Yeah, the text went really fast in the last dialogs, but given that I have recorded everything, one of the things I'll do is make that section play slower so one can actually read the dialogs just fine (me included)
Amazing level!
Also, what a nice coincidence that this level came out just as egomassive has returned a mere month ago :)

The only problem is that text in time-based dialogs often switches insanely fast so you can't read it.
I also found one void accessed by a tricky jump, but seeing how useful these things sometimes are for speedrunning, I'm not even sure they're worth fixing.
Small note from me.

Thank you everyone. I saw the news yesterday morning, got the level and started recording a video. I did get stuck in the level, but after a visit to discord and a few hours later, I knew where to go. Today I finished the level and recorded all footage.

But I want this to be more than just showing my play through, so there will be some extensive editing taking place and stuff.. This means it will be a bit before my video will be ready for everyone's viewing pleasure. Its probably going to be long. Luckily not 5 years long... But probably somewhere close to that... maybe... maybe not.

Anyway, I did want to reply so others know I have seen it. :) I just want my real reply with video to be something as special as this level is. :)

Anyway, LPChip signing out. See you in a bit. :)
Very good level!
This is exactly what I'd expect from assembling some of the greatest KS designers to collaborate on a level. What an awesome experience! The humour and references throughout were great and I actually laughed at a couple of them. Top notch stuff, guys. Really great to see a monumental level like this finally brought to fruition. I'm sure this will go down as a beloved level for a lot of people. :D
