The Legend of the White Elephant

Type: Challenge/Puzzle
Size: Medium
Difficulty: Hard (starts easy and gets progressively more difficult)


Story:

Many centuries ago, eight gods forged a pact with the Knytts: their village would be under the gods' protection and shielded from any danger... as long as the sacred beast, the White Elephant, was allowed to live peacefully in the village. But then, one fateful day, the elephant disappeared and the Knytts feared the wrath of the eight gods would bring doom to their beloved village. To save the Knytt Village from the impending catastrophe, Juni has to rescue the White Elephant from the hands of the evil villain "Cubata-Thrower"... a dark sorcerer who plans to use the magical energy of the sacred beast to make himself even more powerful. To do so, Juni will have to explore the land, recover ancient magical artifacts and overcome many traps, until she finally reachs her destination.

Notes:

* This level assumes you've played, at least, the Knytt Stories tutorial. If for some bizarre reason, you've not played it yet... well, what are you waiting for? :P

* All the in-game text was originally in Spanish, so I had to translate it into English before the public release. If the dialogue seems confusing and/or sounds really stupid (when it shouldn't, that is), come back to this thread and bitch about my poor writing X)  If you report a mistake or suggest a correct replacement for any text line that sounds strange, I'll give you my thanks and a virtual cookie.


Hints: (this contains spoilers for the puzzles -- read it if you're stuck)

It doesn't matter at that point, but it would be a good idea to remember that detail. Try coming back to the maze later to re-explore it and see what happens.

The LISP code is just a nerdy reference to a team project I did at the university (computer engineering). Basically, instead of writing a lot of separate loops and auxiliary functions to process an array, I just put a beast of a loop nested into the "make-array" sentence... and when my friend was revising the code, he started to panic and freaked out saying things like "OMG OMG loop from hell!!". I decided to put these code lines in the game just for kicks X)

I don't think I should make another thread for this, so I'll just update this one: I uploaded a new beta version of the level (0.9.1) and a Spanish version of the game. Both have fixes for the errors reported by Mr. Monkey (thanks a bunch!). If you want to update from a previous version, simply re-install and choose to overwrite the previous directory. Savegames should carry over to the new version.

http://knyttlevels.com/levels/Vegetal%20Gibber%20-%20The%20White%20Elephant%20v0.9.1.knytt.bin

This is going to be my last update on this level until the final version is ready. Unless somebody reports game-breaking bugs and/or really embarrasing mistakes, I'm not gonna upload a new version of this level until we can finish coloring the illustrations and any other incomplete details.

The first post has been edited to add the new download links.

Well... with a secret ending like that, I don't blame you if you feel like you've lost brain cells  X)

But I can't imagine why you would be unable to finish the game the normal way :S  I've checked that part just now, but it seems to be working fine. Did you...

Spoiler: (click to show/hide)

Anyway, thanks for the feedback. I'm sorry if I caused you too much grief with this  :oops:
