Played it again. As good as when I tested it :) I didn't see a "forest"... depends of how you see things, but to me you're always in caves,

Excellent level. I can't wait for your next!
I think that every one else can, though. :D (I mean that it's not going to be as good as your other ones :\)

Last note on that level in this topic: whenever you feel it's ready, feel free to post it into the preview level section without asking me! (Shoulda been in a PM, but I wanted to make people long for it ;D)

I'll put one together when you finish the river.

In other news, thanks everyone for the feedback. I personally would not have been happy to end it at the garden area; for me it wouldn't have been satisfying. However, I agree that I should have put a bit more into the tilesets for the final area; I was low on ideas and motivation was slowly draining away, but it would have been good if I'd done something new for the area. Maybe given it a Victorian Industry feel, to match the wheels. i say it about all my levels, but maybe I'll go back and redo it some time (unless people think it was good as it was).

I just finished playing this, and I know it's a month-long bump, but this is still on the first page, and hey, it's never too late for positive feedback. I liked the level a lot; it's definitely one of my favorites. It has that dark edge that I always love in KS levels, like you're seeing things through a lens that's somehow changing the image before it gets to you.

I JUST got finished playing, "Petals of a Dying Flower."


..........WOW.



I mean really, dude.

You make such profound games on a metaphysical, mood level.

and so intricately and well-designed. I mean...wow!

It's like the difference between a professional designer and some hobbyist who JUST discovered knytt playing some of your games and some of the others I've played since discovering knytt stories for myself.

You and egomassive and a few others are like light years ahead when it comes to sound and fun game design. And you always have a story/theme/philosophy behind your episodes. I found myself really moved by this particular level. I don't know.  Maybe it was seeing this character I'm so familiar with - Juni silhouetted the whole time - in this dark cavern fighting her way to the top/light.

Great job.

I have played for about 5 minutes or so, and I just realized in that short time... how bad I am at KS.  XD But, still, In those 5 minutes, I realized that this map was beautifulC) And by the way, the map is not really small, I'd say it's medium in size.

So I don't usually post my LP's anywhere, I'm bad at self-promotion. But this one I felt like I should share.
I've been doing what I call the "Talps-a-thon" for a bit where I play through a bunch of Talps' levels. Early on I asked Talps if he wanted to join in on a level to talk about it, and he chose this one.

It was a very interesting and fun experiment and I think it turned out rather well!

You can watch it here: https://youtu.be/KMJsiEq57bU

Thanks for joining me Talps :)

T'was my pleasure. Other topics of conversation in the video include some thoughts about 'Dragon Myth'.

Just watched the video and was surprised to find two of the music tracks have been changed in the version Bulba s playing. I wonder who did that and how Bulba got an edited version.

Talked to Talps via PM but I figured I could explain it here as well.

I myself am to blaim for this. I downloaded this level a few months back and saw this post:

playthrough http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7CLoXGIBX_4

EDIT: i'd be glad if you made a version of the level without copyrighted music, right now that video is blocked in germany


typo: the correct link for "October Air" is http://ccmixter.org/files/nhomas/17056

if i'll find enough other good new levels and get around to write another TIGSource post about KS levels, i'll include this one

I figured I might have to change the music and went ahead and did it as an experiment to see how easy it would be. I was going to switch it back before the LP but I later forgot about it. I at least tried to match the mood when I did it, so hopefully it doesn't take too much away from it.

Already posted a comment on the video but this was really cool to watch. I have to say this is probably my second favourite Talps level (after IDoTS of course). So it was really great to hear some of Talps' comments. I definitely recommend checking it out, everyone.

Watching video now - interesting to see and hear one of the great KS levels narrated by one of the great level makers and the one who actually made it! Cool. and turns out Talps has a british accent...perfect.
