So, I made something really stupid.

I think the first thing I should explain is the title. Well, quite a while back I made a big DROD RPG level called "Fart" with lots of deliberate player-trolling throughout. Like: It starts out with a good sword and then a spiraling passage of bad swords, so the player has to step back and forth repeatedly to bring the good sword out. Or, it gives the player a bunch of pickaxes and actively requires using them to explore most of the level. And there's a room full of slayers. So, for whatever reason, I chose to call this hold "Fart 2.0", like, the second version of that RPG hold, even though it has almost nothing in common with it but a kind of troll attitude built in. For the record, though, I think the experience of playing this will be absolutely nothing like the hypothetical experience of playing the original Fart blind.

So anyway, this is a semi-troll hold. Its goal is to find some new way to confuse, surprise and/or annoy the player with each passing room and/or level, but hopefully more in ways that make him or her chuckle than groan. It also features a strange new "custom behavior" which I think it's best I say as little about in this introduction as possible. I would, however, legitimately call most of the rooms puzzles, and all of them can be solved.

Take a look, if you will. I don't know if I plan to "superpublish" this but I'll try to fix any major issues found, at least. I'm really just interested to read or see some reactions to it, I dunno.

It's a pretty solid gimmick, actually.

Yeah, I think it's pretty great. Can't figure out *:1S, but otherwise... :)

EDIT: Actually, I got it, but I don't know why it was different that time.

*:1S is a very mean efficiency room where if you don't enter facing the exact correct way and do exactly the right thing, it kills halph.
