[Roughly 15 Fresh-S2] 035 - Runaround

#1
Guten Morgen! It's somehow Friday again, and you know what that means!





This week we're having a look at:

Tikishore Island - SmileyJnr
Toxic Facility - jojo4924
Everflame Castle - CalvinTheJerk
What lurks within - MatFluffles_2017
Skyland Platforms - lolman22559

This was a...interesting set to record...some of the levels didn't really click until the 2nd or 3rd play (and one of them never clicked at all), so there's a bit of a disconnect between the video clips and the outro. This is why i'm so glad folks pointed out doing PiPs to me; i imagine similar situations before could have been quite confusing to viewers. Anyhow, hopefully there'll be something in there that catches your eyeballs and looks fun to play. Thanks as always for all the support, and have a great day!

Now, i'm just relating purely factual information here, not doing any prognosticating trying to call down the Wrath of Entropy™ or anything like that. The fact remains, though, this week, and particularly yesterday, were stupidly good for production. Got next week's episode wrapped (but for the PiPs, 'natch). Got a new set kit up and ready to go for the week after (and the early get the characters, clocks, and whatnot prep done as well). The LBsP was on...Monday? Tuesday? Anyway, we did that thing too. All told, pretty darn solid.

Had a lot of fun with the stream yesterday, which was nice. The was a shocking twist at the end of our third run that would have left me pretty salty as a player, had it not been so fun as a presenter (is that what i am? i mean, i wanted two "p" words for the sentence so...whatever). Unfortunately, the connection dropped completely as we were wrapping things up. Which, thinking timing, i guess is the best time that could have happened, but is just a new thing for me to worry about. Worse, because i can't really do anything about it, as far as i know. So...fingers crossed for Saturday's Gungeon stream.

Did get a message from one of my semi-regular viewers that they'd not gotten a notification from YouTube when i'd started streaming, which is kind of bunk. At the very least we've managed to keep pretty tight to our schedule, though i know converting the time zones can be a bit of a pain. If you want to jump in, the times listed on the playlist page [Playing to an Empty Room] are pretty solid, and if they do need to change for some reason, i'll put up a quick video to explain what's going on. Anyway, if you haven't you're always welcome to drop on by. Let's make the series title semi-ironic!

Woop woop! It's Tuesday Takeaway time again!

Tikishore Island - SmileyJnr
This was really weird. So, i picked up a key sticker when i beat the level, i guess? So when i used it, it unlocked some kind of super power-up that shoots out a blast that will blow up the watermelon bits, and put out the hot coals and lava...so basically it nerfs all the difficulties presented by the mocktail sword...that's...kind of an unusual way to go about things, it's like acknowledging the base design of the sword is poorly done? Anyways, breezing through the sword bits allowed my brain to focus on how frustrating some of the Grabinator puzzles were, so...err...success?

Toxic Facility - jojo4924
This is a surprisingly sold first platformer, to be sure. There's a fair amount of challenge, but none of it is overwhelming. Like i said in the episode, it probably would have been better to have the level start in "easy" mode, and give the player the option to switch it to hard, instead of the other way around, but that's a minor quibble. i'd still love to know what was going on with that sinking platform, though. That was the only one of the lot with that problem, but it basically makes that obstacle impossible. Weirdsville.

Everflame Castle - CalvinTheJerk
Yeah, so...what i said in the episode? 100times that. To be honest, if i could go back and re-record it, i'd probably give it a Red Triangle. Which is a shame, because the presentation is definitely there.

What lurks within - MatFluffles_2017
i do like to get requests and recommendations from folks, even if i can't always accommodate them. Still, i'm always a little worried that that level will turn out to be suck, 'cause i'm going to have to be upfront about that if it's the case. Thankfully, it wasn't the case here. The level is on the short, simple side, but it's only meant to be an appetizer, so that's fine. Mat got in touch with me on YouTube and said they'd been worried the grappling was a little bit too tough...which is interesting how people gauge difficulty. i thought, personally, that the grappling could have been expanded a bit and made a bit tougher.

Skyland Platforms - lolman22559
Perhaps not the best example of the type that we've ever looked at, but it's smooth, short, and sweet, and that has to count for something. i do wish the cameras hadn't been quite so herky-jerky, though.

So...yeah...that's the that. Certainly a weird set-list this go about, but not without merit, i think. Hopefully there's something in there that was fun for you, yeah? Thanks as always for all the support, and have a great day!
