map notes
"What do we make here?  Well now, that's really none of your concern..."

   Plenty of other people have done it, and so now I shall join in on the fun: I'm going to start remaking some of my older maps.  The biggest reason for this is my older maps are pretty bad and I see so much room for improvement.  My ambition outpaced my skill at the time.  Since I have no originality at all, I will make all these maps "dark" versions of the originals.  3 spooky 5 u

   Enigma was the first time I tried to make a difficult map, and I went about it in the worst way.  I made a lot of things symetrical or spaced artistically, because I was still really bad at Dustforce.  As a result, a lot of the obstacles were really tight without being fun at all.  Looking back I see a couple rooms I still think are really cool... and some others where I can't even imagine how I thought that would be fun for anyone.  Dark Enigma expands upon the dustblock platforming in more creative ways, with more variety and less repetition.  Additionally, it now has a new proper any% route with a camera that doesn't make players do an entire dustblock platforming section blindly (the camera was so bad).  The difficulty and length of the map have been rebalanced to be less punishing.

I'll leave the next map I remake up to a vote in the comments: let me know what you think.

i hate dustblocks with a vehement passion but i recognize the effort that was put into this level
i also like mirrors that have the little slopes on the side, you know, the bevel?

If you're talking about the 3 part mirrors that swing on hinges, I love those.  You can see the sides of your head O.o!

Yeah well that type of glass is pretty and all, but you can still have the bevel'd mirrors arranged in the row of 3 and combine the best of both worlds.

there is a sort of ignominious honor
in being the last SS
makes you feel like both a goner
and peerless

^"and *totally* peerless" would get the syllable count up to match the second line.

That's just because I'm unwilling to replace my first run.

The cover pic has a chunk that is 2 tiles wide where as the rest is only 1.
