[Challenge] Penumbra
« on: November 06, 2012, 09:49:48 »
Hello there. I've been fiddling around with the level editor for about a week now and I think its time to create a Knytt Story level. I'm still new to all of these, so bare with me as I make progress in making my level. I'm slowly getting the hang of using the level editor (Im using egomassive's KS+ mod), but I'm still having troubles with using warp and flags.

Anyhow, my level is heavily inspired by the game Limbo and Nightsky. I'm trying to capture Limbo's atmosphere and Nightsky's casual platforming. I finished creating my custom character spritesheet and am currently working on the tilesets that I want to use. I'll probably add puzzle elements in my levels once I'm more familiar with using warp and flags.

I will update this first post as I make progress and will try to provide screenshots for preview.

You seem to have captured Limbo's atmosphere perfectly there. I'm very curious about how the character animation looks.

Looks pretty nice. Flags and Warps seem to be the hardest part for most people, but they're worth learning. Good luck!

@ raicuparta
Thanks! I'll upload videos when I finish more screens.

@egomassive
I've read the manual and other instructions that I can find about warp/flags, I just need more practice to perfect it. I'm also looking for any tutorial videos about it.

Question: Can I ask for support and/or feedback in this thread or do I have to make another separate topic in Level Editing support forum?

Of course you don't have to make another topic ;). And good luck with making the level.

Yeah!  I'm hoping for a glut of KS+ levels once everyone figures out how amazing it is to use.  Looking good!
