Same here... it's been over 9 years already for me. Crazy how quick time passes!

Anyway, progress update: I might release a new demo with Level 18 and the start of Level 19 after I've taken care of the bugs that Nuntar has mentioned. (Thanks for the input, BTW :D)

Hold updated! The backtracking bug in L12 should be fixed now. Sorry I took a while to fix it... :closedeyes

Anyway, Level 16 is now available! Enjoy, my dear friends! :D

I've been playing through the hold again from the beginning. So far everything looks fine, but I did notice a stair assignment problem: the stairs in Ninth Level: The Entrance go back to Eight Level (OLD) instead of the normal Eighth Level proper.

I played until the half of level 10.

Notes of level 9 (level which I started to do them):

2N 1W: I think the arrow is in the inverse direction. You can kill the eyes and exit without use the decoys.
2N 1E: I could solve the room with only two decoys.
2N 2E: I don't know if the intended solution is:

I tried with the intended way I suppose is, use both decoys to arrange the roaches and halph can touch all the orbs, I tried it but I cannot re-arrange the chamber below.
1E: What is supposed to do here?. I will tell what I did.
Click here to view the secret text
Is the intended solution?.
1N: you can't return if you cross the arrow before clean 2N (unless I need to do something with the potion)
3N 1W: Neat room!.
1N 2E: I liked this room, took me a while open the middle door.

Jeff mentioned in chat that he accidentally deleted Fifth Level 2N, so here is a copy.

Third Level 4S1E is brilliant. Devilishly hard, too.

Ninth Level entrance stairs go to an "OLD" level.

The potion in level 9 1N is not needed to kill all the roaches.
No potions are needed in 2N1W either.

There also appears to be a backtracking issue on level 9 itself; once the player has passed over the force arrow in 1N, they can no longer return to the first part of the level if 2N hasn't been solved yet.

After over 2 years of on/off work, Level 17 is finished! Who knows how long 18-20 will take...

Let me know if you find any bugs in the hold!

Thank you for patience :)

Time to give this another try :D

I'm glad most of the clunky exposition has been removed, but there are still a few oddities and other little things....

I've fixed most of the smaller bugs and have left some notes to review some of the larger issues (mainly those involving changing/moving rooms). I will post the new version shortly.

EDIT: V1.8.1 is up, with most of the issues fixed.

I noticed that the old tutorial blurbs and scrolls were removed. Out of interest and on account of the presentation of this as an "introduction" hold, I would like to ask why that is.

In early levels it easy for new players to deduce how elements work, but as puzzles get progressively harder and more interactions are featured (IE: Level 10 and 16) it would be convenient from a beginner's viewpoint to have an explanation behind the apparent chaos.
