Also, I noticed a typo in the first screen of the credits cutscene (Scene1.png - "stories" is misspelled as "sotires"). Not sure if this has been already reported, though.

OK, I've updated the level and fixed the bugs. Everyoby who's played the day one edition - sorry for the inconvenience!

Changelog:
     Fixed voids and SGEs
     The "permanent dark silhouette" bug is fixed
     You can now actually access the good ending
     Added Talps mode: You cannot see Juni for the duration of the boss battle Added an unsatisfying easter-egg hidden screen (x1003y1002 in the editor)
     Hold ↓ key at the "bad-end epilogue screen" to be teleported to the Defend/Attack screen (so you can see the good ending - it's really nothing special, but gives you a sense of closure instead of a cliffhanger)

Super nice level!

Finished it in two sessions. No bugs, everything just flowed along nicely.
I enjoyed the challenges and the moody dark areas the most!

Nice work!

I only just recently started playing Knytt stories, and have been binge-playing a ton of different stories by a ton a different designers. That being said, I think this one is my favorite so far! Very challenging without feeling totally impossible. I think my favorite part was the

I'd easily believe that there are 26.

After my moment in the clouds, I also believe one more thing for all those times I got "exploded" - not everything in KS+ should be yellow. :oops:
My Knytt Stories LPs resume! I'll be at it like I was several years ago.

I love everything about this level. All of the areas of the game mesh together so perfectly! The backgrounds looked very nice. The end boss reminded me of Undertale, which seems to be the style you were going for. Great job overall.

At x1009y998, if you go up at x1y0 you end up in a wallswim. whoops 2 month old bump sorry

Thank you for your kind words!

Now about that area you've found... It was supposed to be a fun message for people who got there using cheats. And you got there without them! That's incredible!  :nuts:

Finally getting around to commenting ... Great level. Really like it. Especially the unique "waiting room" and boss fight!

I tried to recreate the turn-based system in Knytt Stories

I replayed the level, with the main goal to see Shadowlands as they should be seen. It's crazy how much my monitor devours dark colors with the settings I use! Beautiful place!

@GrayFace I'm glad you enjoyed it! I tried my best to balance the looks/gameplay/challenge in each area, but when designing the Shadowlands, Waiting Room, Starlight Peak and Yrra Swamp I put the most effort to making the aesthetics distinct and memorable.
