Yotta Casual. The long awaited ending to the x-casual series.

Big thanks to everyone who gave me positive feedback on my other casual maps: TheBirdOfPrey, African, Steelecho, Marksel, Denferok, MavisMayham, Tinker, theimbecil, NoobSlayer and voxanimus. Also big thanks to people helping me on my stream: Takari, TheBirdOfPrey, Doughnation and GrizzlyWilly.

About Yotta Casual:
Exa Casual was released on March 3rd, more than two months ago. Yotta is a hard map to casualize. Firstly, it is four times longer than any other difficult. I tried to keep my other maps at around 20 seconds but this one is much longer. Secondly, I was kinda busy with other stuff. Thirdly, Yotta is just a weird level in general.

Reasons for making Casual Series:
At first I was bored. Then I decided to make a map. I was like, "what is fun? hiting prisms in the air." So I put a bunch of prisms in the air randomly. Then I was like "I should probably put these so they align with jumps." And then I was like people won't like this map because it's too bland and not colorful and just another prism hitting level. I know! I'll call it mega casual and rip off mega's color scheme.
Also big prisms are too hardcore for me.
I didn't like the idea of x-casual series because it feels sort of degrading to the actual x-difficults and like I'm stealing their ideas instead of making my own. However, I like it because I don't have to make up my own ideas, just modify other things slightly. A lot of my maps are based on levels in other games. Finally, it lets people who are not good enough to SS the difficults (read: me) to play these levels. That being said, Yotta Casual is a hard map.

About me:
I tried beating the x-difficults. I got SS's on Giga, Kilo and Exa and an SD on Yotta. Also I worked on doing any% runs but I am still like 10 minutes behind the world record so it seems futlie. I made a few other maps. I am taking a Japanese class right now. I stream a lot.

My stream:
http://www.twitch.tv/shurykan
I recorded making this map (if you skip to 1:37:00) http://www.twitch.tv/shurykan/b/401836552
I average between 0 and 3 viewers so it gets kinda boring when nobody talks in chat. Maybe I should spam the link to it more but I do that like every 4th post anyway LOL. For some reason I suck at fixing audio levels.

Anyway glhf.

I tried to open the level in the level editor and i still cant find how to get to the "other" secret area -_-
btw what is the unused part under the level?
ShurykaN
said May 12, 2013
That's what I meant by the other secret area. If you get to the end of it there is a text trigger!

Funny story, after failing on the original Yotta for 200+ game hours (reaching the final climb 40+ times without dying then failing over and over and over...) I was getting ready to quit the game for good just out of frustration, when I heard that Terra casual had just come out on Takari's stream. I decided to give custom maps a try and loved every minute of that map. I went through the other casuals and that's how I got hooked on custom levels.

So while I haven't played this map, nor do I plan to (fuck Yotta and anything related to it), I'd just like to thank you for this great series of maps.

Cmon now, give it a shot. We all know you're good enough to do it.

This is definitely the yotta that my casual self needs, nay, deserves.

said May 13, 2013
Hmm... I still haven't actually attempted the any% on yotta difficult, but the any% on casual is really fun, haha.
NoobSlayer
said May 13, 2013
Also, wow i think this is the most commented map on the atlas now o.O.
