[Hard] Nightly Symphony
« on: January 17, 2010, 17:47:57 »
So.

This was my magnum opus of Knytt levels, my first and last.

I worked on this nonstop for almost six months, and then, when I was ready to release it, I stopped. I'm still not quite sure why. All I know is that I found this level, 98% completed, in a folder while sorting through my games trying to free up disk space.

I haven't played it through again yet, all I did was add an ending to it.

Basic premise: Juni gets involved in a teleporter accident and is kicked off to some world. The goal is to find your way back home. Cliched even when I did it, to be sure, but I focused more on level design than a brilliant plot.

Here's what to expect:

Nein, both Farik's "Ascention" and my "The Mysterious Grotto" used wallswims to fake flying up. ;)
I'm gonna try this, though, just for the hell of it. :D
Edit: Might I suggest a mirror download?

I'm trapped between a code gate and a teleporter that doesn't go anywhere...

I return with reviews! On a scale of 1-10, I give it a "good". b(^-^)

God I hate Megaupload.. guh..
Use a good file sharing place like.. Mediafire.

Invisible blocks and guess jumping does not make for a good level. Problems so far:

Not looking good for this level.

Do keep in mind this was my first, so I'm more than open to criticism.

ffff, I'll try to get a Mediafire link up soon. Thanks for the heads-up.

Picture or room coordinates would be very helpful, or at the very least what area you're in.

Fair enough. I'd rather have an honest criticism than a blind 10/10.

Before, and I just finished it. I'm liking it so far, I just finished the huge climb so I'm set now, I can strategy jump. Its looking good. I'l retract the thing about the font. Its less the text and more tha black on white that bothers me and yes your idea for changing the background was a good one. Keep up the good work.

Excellent! I'm glad to hear you're enjoying it so far.

I chose white on black as part of that minimalist aesthetic of the game (translation: they were placeholder cutscenes that I ended up leaving in because I was too lazy to make actual pictures).

Ouch. Well, I can see that, the level design is less for beauty and more for challenge. I hope I at least managed to entertain you for an hour or so. :P
