Description
Cave here. Apparently one of our employees was out "walking the dog" the other day - at least that's what he told me - when their dog just happened to dig up a lump of fossilised amber. Now, if you ask me it sounds like he was doing an archaeological dig without a licence. You know what happens if you do that? You get fired. And then buried underground. Your dog does too, if he even exists.

Point is, inside the amber was a vicious little mosquito which according to the lab boys contains traces of dinosaur DNA! Which dinosaur? Who knows! But Greg tells me that somehow there's enough DNA in that whiny little scamp (the mosquito, not Greg) to clone a whole menagerie of dinos. Various government officials have warned us that doing such a thing could be very dangerous, but luckily one of them was eaten by our prototype Diplodocus Rex, and the others are all too traumatised to say anything. That cleaned things up nicely, and it's clear there are no ethical concerns to people who *aren't* stuck-up bureaucrats, so we've decided to go ahead.

So, coming soon to an Aperture Science near you (as long as you live in Michigan) is an awe-inspiring dinosaur themed attraction we've decided to call "Jurassi..." no wait a minute... "Land of Jurassic-Era Dinosaurs Which Are Great Fun For The Whole Family but May Bite Your Head Off". Perfect! Oh, funeral for that government official is next week by the way. Dino themed, of course. Cave Johnson, we're done here.

----------

"Amber" is a Medium difficulty Monoportal map focused on careful planning and timing. The puzzle is not execution based, but may require fairly quick reactions in some areas. Most people will probably be absolutely fine, but please let me know if you have difficulties. "Amber" is quite different from anything I've done before, so feedback is very much appreciated!

Difficulty: Medium

The last catch in time was hard to time, tried 6 times :LIMBO_run:

Nice map, I appreciate the tutorial room. Sadly it's a bit on the skill based side as we know. I didn't have any problems since I'm familiar with the physics after a lot of Portal hours - yet skill is not my favourite "element". The chamber makes it up though, so here's a thumbs up.

I kept doing the last step too fast, it was really difficult to go slow. You could probably use hammer to make the picking up of the cube more generous.

Quite good, just remind others to Quicksave often, especially toward the end, as it is timer and heavy on choreographed moves. Eleven clicks for the main event is a bit snug, but I suppose is right; since shorter is unplayable and longer would mess up the momentum.

I usually hate timers in any game I play, but this was actually enjoyable to play. It even inspired me to incorporate the move into my Auto Tutorial level for my TUBER series, so thank you for the inspiration, @Demon Arisen! :p2cube:

I've almost played through every one of your puzzles now and this is definitely one of my favourites. A really cool sequence of aha moments!

More difficult than your others to pull off, I messed up a few times because I was rushing myself. Still a good test :ninjavictory:
