Description
Testers these days, you all think that getting through a couple rooms will magically open the exit. Get off my lawn!

Difficulty: Medium/Hard. Time: 40-60 minutes. I recommend that you play The Odysseys Initiative or other non-linear maps before this one.

Unlike my usual maps, there is no set number of times you have to go through this one, though count on at least two. Quite a few tricks are used here, but stacking cubes to jump to the pedestal button is not one of them. You also don't need to toss cubes, and there's nothing to gain by taking them out of their respective rooms. There aren't any hidden connections; as I said, the exit will not magically open all by itself.

Of course I have played. It's even more brilliant ;)

Thanks ^.^ Not sure if you've played my Odysseys map, but it's another backtrack map with a larger scale http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=118113879

Great map! It was a bit difficult to properly go back and place the gel, so one could travel without using portals, but I managed to!

I wish I had not given up on the map last night and continued today. I had everything worked out except one thing, how to correctly apply the blue gel in the white room. Facepalm for not seeing that... Excellent puzzle, exactly the type I love. I'm mad about not getting the last needed step.
I used the same method as buff00n with the laser cubes, when I later activated the pedestal button I was very disappointed that I only got a useless flip panel out of that action.
Ravoria  [author] May 26, 2013 @ 3:35pm 
Yeah, you did that all as intended, although that flip panel can make setting up the laser easier in theory... though your way actually seems easier. Maybe I'll take that panel out...

No, that was the intended solution. Curious how you managed to set it up without the pedestal button... will watch your demo tomorrow, thanks for posting

Going through it again I realized that I didn't need use use that pedestal button at all. Here's a demo of my final pass through the level, including the laser trick. [www.dropbox.com]

Haha that's hilarious. I didn't even know there was a grating there before.

I thought about it some more, and I may have done something unexpected on my last, portal-less run through the laser room. It involved getting the laser to pass through a third cube sitting on the lowered platform, then moving that cube while standing on the platform to raise it up. If that sounds horribly wrong then I'll send you a demo. .
