map notes
re-upped cause i forgot to edit out a random square; i'm sorry Guycep :(

i wanted to make a barebones, minimalist map. so. everything is triangles! (except the prisms) there is no dust! there are no spikes! no music! no sound! (mainly cause i forgot)

pathing should hopefully be straightforward; there's a literal path for you to follow. there are two places where you have to buffer your jump รก la Spikeless. watch my replay if you can't get it.

this should be good for all characters. dustkid will probably have the most trouble.

this map was way too long in the making. especially given how simple it is.

please, leave feedback! tell me what you liked. tell me what you didn't like. tell me what your deepest fears are.

10 points to the person that figures out what the palette was inspired by.

Why do you have death points in such annoying places? http://i.imgur.com/jUOqHcw.png & http://i.imgur.com/nFjG59B.png

IMO, makes any% less fun and it is just annoying if you don't jump in time from the top.

the level was designed to be played along the black path. i placed the deathzones accordingly :( there isn't supposed to be an any% for this level, really. i'm sorry if that makes it less fun.

I just hate restrictions. Nevertheless, I did like the level.

Not entirely sure what you mean by palette, but the triangles do remind me of Abstergo and Anti-chamber. Also, really cool map dood, really liked the use of the power line cables.

yes yes we have a winner! the colors/triangles/design was inspired by the whole AC aesthetic. and palette refers to the color palette aka the colors i chose.

thanks for the compliment dood i'm glad you liked it :D

I liked it a lot. I do think the wall jumps in this picture: http://i.imgur.com/emA123R.png are a little too restrictive. You basically have to wait the entire wallrun's length each time to get enough height for the last one (and this isn't really a problem, I just prefer not having to do that because it feels slower).

i know what you mean; i was also not totally pleased with how that part turned out. but the triangle placement was symmetric and moving anything screwed that up, so i didn't change it. it definitely does put a little bit of a damper on the pace of the level, though.

thanks for your feedback, and i'm glad you liked it :D

The black lines in the beginning had this really satisfying chaos to them that sort of got lost near the end. Like they followed the intended path but still felt a bit jagged, then later became more and more straightforward. I feel like it would have worked better if you'd kept the black lines feeling haphazard even in that final dash left. I don't think it would make the path any less clear but I dunno, maybe you messed with it and it didn't work out. Just sayin

Do you have dash-jump assigned to a single button with a macro or did you really do those manually?

Manually. I use a PS3 controller, dash on R1 and jump on X.
