awesome job.

this mission, alongside with "too late" - is the best i ever played (and i played almost all of them).

it's just one thing bugs me, with so much cornices and climbing in general player has access to why didn't you placed some loot there above?

I LLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEE your use of colored lights in this mission, the aesthetics are amazing. Lots of fun if small and short, completed in about 25 minutes with all loot except the locked chest and a few baubles I think.

I always assumed I'd taste like boot leather.

That building in the first shot looks VERY familiar. You must've used the same ref shot as me from the inspiration page. lol

very awesome. i know i'll be studying the assets of this map for cool techniques and scripting.
Can't think of a single reason to rate any category as less than 4. will weigh it in my mind a bit about giving out 5's though. i'm pretty stingy with 'em. definitely considering.

All in all, I think you might of stolen the show on this contest, MD!!

Or you can just highlight them (as if you're going to copy them). Makes them readable at least.

My voice actor wishes to remain anonymous. I will say this: I chose this man firstly because he has a genuinely aged bass voice, but secondly because he is fairly outspoken against video games in general. I got him to record these lines, with multiple takes, with some genuine critique, in front of a big intimidating condenser microphone. Essentially, I introduced to him how video game developers are talented artists, professionals, experienced and devoted men, and not some toymakers gone bad. Or the modern version of Socrates, corrupting the youth. ;)

I enjoyed this, couldnt get to sleep all night - ended up playing this while testing 1.07 at 6am.

The voiceover was very nice - really makes a big difference!
Geometry wasn't too pretty, but it wasn't about that - so you're excused ;)
Coloured lighting was interesting, admittedly I had my doubts after seeing the screenshots - seemed perfect in play however.

That was dope! But short. It'd be crazy if it was half an hour longer at least. Gameplay was really nip and tuck with A Night to Remember imo.

I enjoyed this, and for a speed-build contest it's quite impressive.
Spoiler


Lots of nice touches, and some suitably creepy moments. I loved the intro movie (there's now just you, I and Goldcochobo so far...hope more people will get on board with those) and the voice-overs. I appreciated the loading screen as well...it's another small touch that really adds some polish.

Within the first 30 seconds of the game I saw outside the game-world, which was a bit of a downer (if you climb over the railing and along the ledge to the corner, there is a gap where you see out into the void) but everything from then on was great.

I enjoyed manipulating the machines and seeing the cogs turn, though I had no idea what it actually did until reading the thread.

My only real complaint is that I would have liked to have some people to worry about earlier on. I didn't get bored, but I missed having to actually hide. A few more readables with some backstory also would have added a thing or two...but given it was a speedbuild those are very minor complaints.

Good work! :)

edit: oh, one other thing...I had a flashbomb icon in my inventory, but it said "0". Didn't turn out to matter but did confuse me.

Actually, all I can see is: "You have already voted in this poll"... Looked everywhere, a word search doesnt show anything. Maybe the new layout changed it?


Wondering if you found a solution to the "delete vote" problem? I had the exact same trouble in another mission and feel bad about giving an incorrect vote.

Unfortunetly no. There's no way to delete the vote, if the poll maker didnt allow it when he was creating the thread (as is the case here, for example). :(

Same as Springheel, I had 0 flashbombs, also had 0 health potion, though I used it and it worked.

Really fun and interesting. When I was loading I was curious as the screens looked pretty, but I really wasn't in the mood for an 'alternate' gameplay. But I found it to be really fun and immerseful (? lol) anyway.

Great stuff all around, only missed one 150 piece of loot that I cheated for right at the end.

I want to do a 'load movie' to as Spring said, but I looked at wiki, we have no tut for it.

I've updated "The Creeps" to version 1.01. I'm taking care of this now, long before Halloween, so I can focus on other projects.

I haven't added enough to make it worth another playthrough. I just applied a coat of polish -- prettying up brushwork, and adding a bit more atmosphere.
