[Hard/Challenge] Eurydice
« on: June 15, 2010, 18:53:08 »
At last, it is finished! This is my second KS level and it's based on the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, which is about a man whose wife dies a short while after their wedding, so he travels to the land of the dead to plead for her return. As I say, this is based on that, not a faithful retelling (my main character's a girl, for one thing).

I've tried to use Knytt Stories to tell a good story, since telling stories is where my strength lies. But I hope I've managed to make a fun, challenging, not frustrating/annoying level in the process!


Download link is...
http://knyttlevels.com/levels/Talps%20-%20Eurydice.knytt.bin

The intro does say 'Part 1' but all the 'parts' are there, in one package, as it were. Like chapters. This is the complete version of the game.


Hope you enjoy it!

epic. great story. very puzzly..which I love, and you've decorated very, very nicely with some old tilesets and new yes?

however...this is just way too hard for me in places. gets frustrating cause I don't have the hours required to complete such a level with out looking in the level editor.

the most insane area has to be, and I hate invisible mazes, when you finally reach...

brilliant work.
like reading novels.
also it's such a large level that i spend almost 2 hours to beat it.

well, the last part of the game is the hardest part..
it's not impossible but needs patience..

Trilby, I think you mean the lighthouse? with the blocks hanging from chains? I don't know if this will help, but even before you get the High-Jump upgrade, holding down the jump button makes you jump slightly higher. And tapping it makes your jumps shorter. Which helps avoid overhead obstacles.

That looks really good. Sadly, I don't have the time to play it now, but I'm looking forward to it. I hope there'll be some time, sometime soon.

Thanks Talps.

Now I'm stuck in hell. I'm at the part with the 6 or 7 surprise pillars. I'm assuming I need the hologram. But for the life of me, I cannot find it. *sadface*

Edit: ...Well guess who figured it out right after posting that? ME. Anyway, that was the most beautiful level I ever played. Thank you for posting it. :]

P.S.: Does the purple key exist. If so, where? D:!

Purple Key gets you the Secret Bonus Ending™.

Wow, I'm really happy that you guys are giving me such praise! I have started working on my third level, but I'm a bit Knytt-Story-fatigued, so it'll probably be a while before I make much progress. That's how it went with this; I started it right after making my first level, then stopped and came back to it several months later.

Uh, I'm stuck I guess?

I've gone down the well, but there's a place now where I can't get through with water in the screen with a bush-looking enemy. In the screen above also, I can't go right.

You mean the green thing? Those will charge at you if you turn your back on them but move away from you if you face them. There was one in the hard mode of Nifflas' 'This Level is Unfinished' so I thought I'd probably be ok putting it in there.
