This was a fun concept. I'd like to do more levels like this in the future. In-between losing my mind over my bigger projects, of course.
Things to remember when writing figures of speech and sound:
The power of poetry comes from the ability to defy logic. Defy logic often.

Use a metaphor and tell us that your lover is the sky. Tell us that your lover is the sky. When you do that, we won't believe you. We won't believe you because saying so makes no sense, but we'll see a meaning. We'll see a meaning.

The other thing is the ability to be remembered. Love anything.

Love anything

Wow! What an excellent level, guys!  I'm very impressed!  :whoa:

I'm not sure if I'm more impressed with Fubaka for coming up with the concept or with ixMarcel for filling in the gaps in all of those disjointed tileset screens.  :P

Either way, a VERY fun level and a great example of how tilesets can really help tell a story.

Very interesting concept!  Impressed that something so solid was created from it.  I always enjoy collecting things, so any level that does that gets a gold star in my book.
Indefinitely Held Off:
This Level Plays Itself!

Filling in all the squares on the map was so satisfying. The fact some of them stand in for multiple rooms was slightly maddening (in a good way). Fantastic work, both of you, this level feels like such a classic.

This was a really interesting level. I liked the concept of things being diagonal. Impressive cooperation and work on this.

REALLY GREAT level. I loved the chess motif! You two worked really well together, and this was a fun little outing!
