map notes
Save your tears for the day when our pain is far behind.
On your feet! Come with me, we are soldiers stand or die.

     This map was a collaboration with Hourglass; he did most of the gameplay.  We passed this back and forth several times and I think you all are really gonna enjoy it.  It has spacing or obstacles that you require some more creative strats to SS cleanly and quickly.  At the same time, we were also careful not to overuse any gimmicks and a lot of things only appear in the map once or twice.  Supers are disabled: we agree it plays better without them and I didn't want to make compromises to force the player to use a super just to avoid cheesing another section.

     If you're curious about the theme, I re-watched Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex when I moved to Japan.  This map is named after the crazy iconic ending theme "Lithium Flower".  It also features literal virtual flowers lol, wow such deep.  This map is based on GitS in general and dedicated to the memory of Origa.  Shame about that terrible live-action movie that just came out.

Or literally anything in the GitS OST.

Protip: YouTube blocks songs I try to link in other non-glorious-Nippon countries. I did not know that. However Soundcloud still works and also still easily supports looping a single song with a repeat function.

She had to die.  There was no other way to go about it tbh fam :okhand:

Gameplay is amazing and the art is really pretty.  The gameplay flows really well and I know I have a lot of room to improve but it's really fun to grind so I don't mind it.  The flower theme or something similar is something I hope you work with again in the future cause I am really digging it.

I thought what I'd do was, I'd pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes

I like how far we've fallen from that.  We went from that... to *this*.  2017 folks.

This song felt so different, exotic and mesmerizing the 1st time I watched the movie.
