In A Reconditioning 3N, you can kill the roach in the corridor between the two open green doors, thus completely trapping the player. The Voice should note this with more exasperation.

Noted. I also fixed a U.S. in Anti 2W. Thanks to Spitemaster for pointing it out!

On the plus side, you might now catch some of the references in this version.

On the down side, you played An Event #1. :P

Update! I did some script fixing in Reconditioning to avoid looping speeches when the rooms are cleared, and to remove a backtracking issue (how ironic!)

EDIT: Another update! Added passageway in Event 1N1W to allow the player to pass without having to go through the slayer in 1W. Also, fixed an US in 3N2W and 4N2W.

Here's a whole bunch of terrible feedback. Most of it probably isn't particularly valuable, but I feel like some parts might be useful to some extent in case Jeff_Ray... does decide to continue on with this hold.

Secreted because this kind of turned out to be *a bit* longer than I expected it to be:

I really don't want to come across as negative and I'm not really used to giving any kind of feedback at all, so take all of this nonsense with a grain of salt.

Hey everyone! I sat down for a few days and I now have a new version of An Event #2 ready for testing!

It's got a brand new level for post-mastery, some pretty amateurish voice acting on most of the lines in An Event, as well as a bunch of fixes and some new scripting easter eggs. :)

This should be the last content update, all that remains now is to fine-tune the product, add some more easter eggs, and recording the rest of the lines if you folks like the voice acting. :P It's not meant to be quality acting, but hopefully it at least isn't too annoying!

Enjoy, and let me know what y'all think and what needs fixing!

Hi Jeff,

Did a complete play of this, so here goes.

This hold is completely ridiculous, but in a very good way. I had great fun cruising through!

Puzzles all work well it seems. Some of the interactions with the scripted monsters left me perplexed for a while, but in the end, all those rooms have a fair and reasonable solution.

There's only a single room that didn't work for me (and a challenge that doesn't trigger):

The dialogues are funny, but please check that characters are properly removed after they do their speech part once, or at least remove them when the room has been cleared. It just doesn't make sense to hear the same room comments repeated again upon re-entry, especially not when the comments are about a puzzle that was solved already. The roach does this a couple of times, but I don't know about the other characters. A check would be nice here.

Also: I would add checkpoints in all of the puzzle rooms. The puzzles are not too hard, so it wouldn't be strictly necessary, but still It'd be nice.

Now for the serious flaw: backtracking. (Secretized for length)

While the last part may seem a bit critical, I enjoyed playing this a lot. And it would be a shame if 95% of all players would miss out on the good bits :(

Thanks so much for the critique! I think your points are all very fair, especially about how difficult it is to find some of the secret levels. I've made sure to take note of the things you've mentioned, and I'll be looking into it for the next update. :)

That being said, I'm very glad you enjoyed it nonetheless :D
