[Puzzle] The Darkness Project
« on: September 30, 2010, 18:31:23 »
Updates

(10/27/10) I NEED tilesets! Please help me! And in other news, I am working on a new soundtrack.
                I am no good at all with tilesets, and I need some. I do not need anymore beta-testers, as this
               is a rather small project. I have been working hard on this, and the release, obviously, has been
               delayed.
(10/16/10) Ok, I haven't posted an update for a while now, but I've done A LOT. The release
                 date is not likely, because I came up with a brilliant idea.
(10/5/10) Room9 is done, 10 is almost done, Working on a Lab area.
               New beta testers: PeppyHare4000 and Pick Yer Poison.
(10/4/10) Working on a "Behind the scenes" of the testing center, and making some
               modernized areas. The release may be delayed. New screenshots coming
               soon!
               New beta testers!!!
(10/2/10) 8 is done, a secret-ish cutscene is done, 9 I am working on. It isn't all dark now. I used the
              Winter version of the Spooky Forest tileset. Story has changed.
              Added new screenshot.
(9/30/10) Rooms 6 and 7 are done, and 8 is in progress. This is really all I have done all day.
              Release date is scheduled.
              More screenshots coming soon.
(9/30/10) Room 5 is complete.

Updates will come at least daily.

Hey, this looks really great! Any inspiration taken from Portal?

Actually yes. Some inspiration from Portal. I've had an idea for a while to make Portal in KS, but I didn't want to call it "Portal KS". So I made Darkness.
And I've now added an ability to create portals on some areas, and Repulsion gel, like Portal 2.

The screens look like interesting puzzles if the portals work the way I think they work... but yeah, you should do something about the title, I totally thought this was some spin on PYP's level.

Ok, Ok, I just now noticed the title of your level is Darkness. Mine is now "The Darkness Project".

EDIT: The name it has now, is only temporary. I will change it again soon. Once I think of something to name is.... Any Ideas?

Ah, another Portal-inspired level. That game is always a good source of inspiration.

If you are still lacking in the beta tester department, I suppose I could help you out there.
SG's difficult KS levels:
Very Hard: Dark Sea, Industral Trap.
Lunatic: Dark Sea 2, Going Left.
Very Lunatic: Safety 1, 2, and 3.
Misc: AdvancedAmidst the Clouds, Candy Town.
