You should really consider releasing update packages for those who already have an old version of the level. The simple way to do this is to remove the music and ambiance folders before compressing the level. 109 MB is a lot to download repeatedly.

I suppose, though to be honest, for most people, downloading 109 MB isn't that big of a deal anymore.  It only takes my computer about 20 seconds to do it, and my connection is nothing special.  

However, if anyone needs me to do that, I'd be happy to send them an update package in the manner you describe.

This is a good story, and you handled everything quite well.  I did have to gave up trying to find all the endings: too hard and time consuming.  I also thought it would be longer, but it is more an epic story than epic length I think (compared to number of areas in The Machine for instance).

Is Basalt Woods tileset usable?  It so beautiful I'd really like to use it.  Below is my favorite screen by the way.  The way you used the darker waterfall to imply depth was brilliant.  I don't think I've seen that done before.

To understand why it's epic length, you will need to hunt down one of the bigger game secrets.  To do this, you need to get all 4 keys and use them.  If you have to cheat to find this part of the game, then so be it.

Also, you may use any tileset in the level that doesn't say otherwise, and Basalt Woods is one of those you may use.  If you want to use the tilesets in there that mention being made specifically for Purple Ink, you will need to contact that user for permission.  I'm sure Purple Ink will let you do so if you ask.

I would like to announce the release of the first bonus video to my let's play of this level. Unlike my other videos, this one is an hour long, as I achieve a good ending. I still haven't managed to find any indication of the level being far longer than it appears. It seems assistance is required if I am ever to see it.

Anyway, here's the video.

Watch in awe as I end every comment I've ever written and ever will write with the most epic signature in the universe!!!!!!!!!

Seems like a lot of people are missing out on the big secret! I hope Fubaka doesn't mind but here are some hints for anyone.

Oh yeah so I looked at this level yesterday through the level composer, and this level is 1453 screens large, which I think makes it the largest finished level.

To top that off, most of those screens are unique, and I didn't even realize it!

Of course, KG here is going to one up me when his next level is released. :P

I've got another update for you all, and this one makes quite a few minor changes to the game.  As such, it is jumping straight to 1.0.5.  I highly recommend you download this update, since it makes some considerable updates to the gameplay.

Changes:
  • Changed and added some dialogs.
  • Improved collision in Basalt Woods and other places.
  • Modified some challenges and moved some save points around.
  • Fixed some continuity mistakes.
  • Fixed some shifts that didn't behave entirely well.
  • Added a secret passageway in the Silver Mountain Summit, for players sick of the water channel on the harder path.

This might be the last update done to this level, unless some more glitches and problems crop up.  I'd say as it looks, the level is near flawless now.

I'm interested in playing this level, but the download link is broken.  Would someone be able to re-upload the level?

Still seems to be down.  I also tried logging into DA to see if it made a difference. (It didn't.  :()

That's very odd.  It was working for me earlier.  Hopefully I don't have to give up on this option.

Making sure it's not on my end, I tried three different browsers.  No luck with anything so far.

Perhaps try Mega/Mediafire or something of the like?

Alright.  For the moment, it seems to be working again.  If it stops working by the time you try it again, I will try a different space provider.

Update:  DeviantArt has failed me for the last time.  I have changed the link to a Mediafire link.  It should work now.

I fail at finding secrets. Only found the yellow key and the detector...
