fyi: This hold throws errors on pretty much any move (at least in 3.0.0). A whole bunch of variants on:

Assertion error in line 2230 of .\Character.cpp: "eCommand < CCharacterCommand::CC_Count"

Assertion error in line 1604 of .\Character.cpp: "!"Bad CCharacter command""

Edit: Probably running into this: forum.caravelgames.com/viewtopic.php?TopicID=15816&page=0#184249. Still annoying, regardless.

Here's another entry: Waterskipper Pond. There's a bit of story, however... :/

Also, I'm unsure if there's a trick in there, but I put it here anyways because I feel that Fracking Bugger won't be so good at the other's eyes.

I feel angry... angry at all those holds which do *not* provide a solution. Especially on a contest like this. This will not be forgotten when voting...

If I have time to judge this contest, I will surely give all these a 5 at best.

If I really wanted something retardedly difficult, I could have used scripting to some ludicrous extent. I wanted a series of clever stupid little tricks, not some thing where you can't beat it because /stupid/ dumb.

...though honestly, my favorite trick is in the solution room.

As I watched the entries go up, idly playing some of them, I was all like "Oh no I am doing it wrong all of them are only using like one or two or six rooms but I am making an entire hold oh no D: "

Regardless, although this entry is definitely much longer than any of the others I've played, I think it is higher quality in terms of cheapness, and so therefore should get a higher score than "lawlz, characters turn into monsters".

[/bad impression]

First time I've entered a contest, but this one looked like some fun.

I have only played the first handful of entries, so it's possible that I'm duplicating someone else's cheap trick. Regardless, here's my first try.
