Description
Well dreams, they feel real while we're in them, right?

It's only when we wake up that we realize how things are actually strange.

Let me ask you a question, you never really remember the beginning of a dream do you? You always wind up right in the middle of what's going on.

You're actually in the middle of the workshop right now, sleeping. This is your first lesson in shared dreaming. Stay calm.


Please also see Inception 2.

you could try to make a ticket with steam support to see if they can help get it fixed at their end or send you their copy of the map (since they'll obviously be able to confirm you are the author easily) so you can reupload it

Yeah.... I'm not sure why either. My hard drive that had all of my maps died. All maps still work but these two and I have no idea why. It sucks because Inception was one of my best ones (I think anyway) I do have a release of Inception 2 Advancified that works still. It only had a couple of minor tweaks to it so you can at least play it.

I cannot open this level :-( I don't have trouble with any other developer chambers, it's just this one and its sequel inception 2. I can subscribe to the level fine. But whenever I try to play the level, it says "an error occurred while downloading this map!". Help! My internets are fine and I can download and play other chambers fine.

I thought it was pretty cool, the whole concept and how you kept coming at the same thing from so many different angles again. However, it began to drag and get old by the end. I think you cut it off at a good point maybe, in the future make them a little shorter because the lack of a change of scenery for so long can be a bit tedious.

That was pretty good, worth a thumbs up, although I did get a bit bored towards the end doing the same thing over and over. I fretted for a while about whether to bring the cubes along with me (I could have had quite a collection), but soon realized that it was not necessary.

Regarding your question about the beginning of a dream, yes, of course I do. Like any time-limited narrative, a dream begins when the narrative begins, that is, when your mind begins to record the events of the dream. You don't "wind up right in the middle of what's going on" because until you begin creating the dream, there is nothing going on at all. If you read a story, at the start the characters exist and are in the flow of their lives. They don't all wake up from comas and say "OK, the story has started, time to start doing stuff".

I think you did a very nice job! The inception theme is great, with like "start is in the middle" and you go to your level 2 dream (gel) and come back to level 1 again ;) Very cool, also Inception 2 is awesome. The gel part kept me thinking a while too ;)
Great Maps!
