Alright, got another episode, hot off the presses!





This time around we're taking a look at:

Acid Trip - Godman250
underwater platformer 2 - thornell5601
A day in the lab... - TraceAlister
Notebook Nonsense - Pathos007
Cardboard Pillars - himoks69

It's an... well, it's an odd set of levels to be sure. We got stung by Acid Trip's sudden Level of the Day pick (which will kind of sort of come up in next week's episode as well, unfortunately), but still there was fun on hand. Give 'em a looksee (a playsee?) and see what you think. Well...hopefully with underwater platformer 2, you'll feel nostalgia, because otherwise... well, you'll see.

Behind the curtain stuff: we finally get to tie a bow on another loose plot thread, and that was fun; though, as always with things that've been set up, i wonder if the pay off will be worth it. Funny, but this episode (or at least the intro/story bit) was supposed to have been made waaaay back, like right after the first Hanami episode. Then i got the idea to transform into a rabbit, then there was the train station, then i went and got dead...well, anyway, it took awhile to get here.

Next week's episode was in the bag on Wednesday, and we got a LBsP episode kitted up then, too, so yesterday was the first Thursday where i had no LBPrecording stuff that needed doing in about, i don't know, 6months at least? No real world errands, either. i didn't need to do anything, so basically, i did nothing for most of the day. It felt really, really weird by about halfway through. Eventually i gave up and started a little work on a set that should be coming up sometime in the next few weeks (couldn't work on next week's episode, 'cause the dialogue bits are still coming together in the brain). Apparently, i don't deal well with aimlessness anymore.

As always, thanks for all the support, folks! Hope things are going well for you in your neck of the woods, yeah?

Alrighty then, Tuesday Takeaway time!

Acid Trip - Godman250
Yeah, this one got yoinked as a Level of the Day, but that's gonna happen sometimes. i don't know that i'd rate it quite so highly, for one it really oversells itself on the level select page, and that's always a bit of a letdown. Not having that spinny bit on some kind of timer can also make things a lil difficult. Still, it's beautifully presented and (in the main) competently put together.

underwater platformer 2 - thornell5601
Not too much to say here except, we've all made this level, or something similar to it. i imagine thornell5601 had fun making it, and was proud to put it out, and at the end of the day, that's really the important thing. It's hard to give advice with something like this without stripping it apart completely, but i would say one thing that could be changed would be to have a Scuba powerup pedestal where ever there's a checkpoint. If you die, you lose the powerup, and there's no way to get it back. Maybe also closing off the start, so the player can't skip almost all the way to the end.

A day at the lab - TraceAlister
Nothing much changed here. Still love the atmosphere, still begrudge the lack of communication. i kind of know how i beat it, but i couldn't replicate it each time, so i'm probably missing something.

Notebook Nonsense - Pathos007
i'm a little disappointed that it looks like Pathos has dropped off the creating map. They did a solid job putting together the level here, and manage to avoid a fair number of early creator mistakes. They've got another level, don't remember if i mentioned that in the outro; it's a pretty solid mountain climbing racer, with a pretty pants boss at the end. Still, it was fun enough to play.

Cardboard Pillars - himoks69
i was really expecting something a lot more stripped down than what we got, so it was a pleasant surprise to see the effort put into presenting the environment, as well as put into gameplay (though if i could only have one, i'd go for gameplay, i guess). This is definitely a fun one, though you've really got to adjust your pace to it. Also, SNAAAAAAAAKE!!!

So, not too much shift in feelings this time about. i kind of like it when that happens, makes me feel a little more solid in my judgement.

Behind the curtain stuff: Holy crap, the set for the 28th has been such a pain in the kiester to put together. Really, it's my own fault, i decided to toss something in that (i think) is cool, but is also (completely) unnecessary, and has been a bear to get working even kind of right. So, as a balance to last week, i'm behind on everything. i might be able to get the intro recorded today, and, if i'm really lucky, there's a slim possibility of an episode of LBsP coming out as well. Have to say, i'm really glad i bought myself this week buffer.


Thanks as always for all the support! Glad y'all are having fun with the show. Have a great day, yeah?
