[Challenge Easy] Stone Tiers v1.2 by Headgrinder.
« on: April 19, 2010, 11:07:52 »
Stone Tiers has been updated with my updated Smooth Stone tileset you can find here:
http://nifflas.lpchip.nl/index.php?topic=3341.0

And the new version is here:
http://www.knyttlevels.com/levels/HeadGrinder%20-%20Stone%20Tiers%20v1%202.knytt.bin

And an updated screenshot (for comparison to the old tileset) is below.

I think I got the wall swims fixed, and I changed an enemy (The purple spike guy just didn't seem to fit the level).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ok, here is my 2nd ever level, and my 1st ever tile set.  

It is a weird tile set, I realize, as it does that thing where Juni is walking on air, but it was an idea I had and I had to do it.  Anyway, I think it is beautiful and interesting.

The poem thing is a bit weird, let me know if it is too emo, or cheesy and I'll not change it, but simply say, yeah, your probably right.

It is a whooping 5mb because I include music (with permission) from a friends band at:
http://www.blackbirdcathedral.com/

And here is the download link:  http://knyttlevels.com/levels/HeadGrinder%20-%20Stone%20Tiers.knytt.bin

Please enjoy with jealous profundity.  ... and I'll try to post a screenshot.

For some very odd reason I can't get the level from the level archive - other levels download fine, but not this one  O_o Could someone reupload it to somewhere else please?

@ Yohji:  That is really weird.  I just tested the link and it is working fine.  Why don't you try it one more time.  If it doesn't work for you, I'll try to find a file server to upload it to.  I've never used the cloud before, though, so I don't have any accounts or such, so please try to get the original to download first.  :)

@ theiza27:  Yes, you missed something.  :)  I'm glad to hear my challenge level is actually a challenge.

And thank you all for tileset compliments.  Oh crap!  ha!  I just realized I didn't sign any of my tilesets!  :kicks self in the head repeatedly:

Really cool tileset. Really pretty. Really a good level. Really inspired me to go back and play your first one again!

I've managed to get it to start downloading, but now it's stuck at 37%... eh.  :moody:

You don't need any accounts anywhere btw, services such as sendspace allow free sharing with no registration required.

UPD: Yay, I managed to get the complete file!  :D

Finished it. Easily my favorite level from this competition and one of the best I've seen lately. A terrific mood, beautiful tilesets and work with color; I was literally stunned when I saw one of the first colored screens! The music was very good and fit the visuals perfectly. And finally, it was nice to see I'm not the only one to try
Spoiler: (click to show/hide)
- I thought this is the most creative way of approaching this competition's limitations. I tried doing that in my level, too, except that I guess it didn't work quite so well  :crazy:

I really hope to see more KS levels by you. Hope this one didn't disrupt your real life too bad (and if it did, well, it was worth it methinks  :D)

Holy Hand Grenades!

That was sublime, man!  The tilesets were gorgeous and well used, the story was short and sweet.  Tasted like a tale of growth and rebirth.

Nice, Dude.  Honestly hope this one wins the compo.
Forever working on a Level called Sarah.

I want to play this, but I can't install it..

Do you need KSA or something?

A short but enjoyable level with nice custom graphics, relaxing music and non-orthogonal design. Me likes :D
Some KS levels by me:

Thanks for the comments guys. 

@Bulbapuck:  Weird dude.  I guess try re-downloading it.  Maybe you ended up with an error in there... it's happened to me before.  Hope you figure it out, b/c I dunno!   O_o
