Intended music: [Insert favorite EDM song here]

So I meant to publish yesterday on my birthday as my gift to you guys, but my computer failed to turn on so here it is. :3
The first in the Intergalactic series. Look out for Hyades Aldebaran sometime in the future. I know this map was supposed to be in the other map pack, but I couldn't decide on what I wanted to do with it and decided to make an Abyss-esque map. I apologize to those who get lag. D: It's probably not that fun gameplay wise, but I put a lot of work into this map so hope you enjoy.

There is never going to be a day when a Meark map doesn't make me happy.  Man I love lab tiles.

I checked out all the signs.  The apple sign is a double meaning in this game.

Meark, it would make me very happy to get art feedback from you on this map:  http://atlas.dustforce.com/5012/azure-valley

Every time I tried to think about ways to cover layer 20 and the parallaxing background layers in more props, it always got too busy or just didn't look good.  Meanwhile, the prop density in your maps (like this one) is exponentially higher, but you always find a way to make it work.

i sorta found it hard to see dust at first, but i got used to it pretty quickly, very colorful map, looks great as always. nice work meark

Thanks Bird.  I was hoping there wouldn't be any visibility issues with the dust and tried using the one that would be easily seen and thought the green slime and dark tile contrast was best. Glad to hear it wasn't a big problem.

You have an amazing talent, you should get a job doing like this.

said May 23, 2015
Thanks. I really feel like I've honed my map decorating skills and bringing life into the worlds i create. Getting a job doing something like this would be cool, but does that even exist? o:

It's called art direction and level design.

Can't decide if reminds me more Ghost in Shell or Blade Runner.

Really impressive every time  I play one of your maps I cant believe how pretty it is.
