Nice, lots of new content. With so many new tilesets, what's the procedure for which tilesets the player will encounter over the course of their playthrough? Is it possible that by random chance, someone might see only a few or maybe even one tileset in all 10 levels? Or will they always see just about all of the tilesets? And is the order random?

What's with the dark Quote and Curly? Is that referencing the Halloween sprites? Or is it referencing Excerpt and Interrobang from WTF Story? Or neither?

Given how much content you've added to this thing since I played it, I might consider playing it again at some point.

Hey congrats TrashBox! Your mod gained enough notoriety for someone to write an article about it on PCGamer!


Nice to see good mods still garnering attention.

Wow, I guess I haven't posted here in a very long time, huh.
Well, I have some news to share. First, the game isn't dead, second, there is active beta testing of next update going on! In fact, there were 9 builds already released and the update is almost finished.

This update is 1.40, Retrospective and Perspective update. It aims to fix myriad of issues that were in the mod for a very long time and introduce a lot of new customizability options, such as variable size maps and ability to configure generation steps and enemy spawning!

Here is almost done changelog of it:
New content:
- Added its own music for Shadowbuilt Crags, instead of reusing Deepest Cave one.
- Replaced Doctor phase 2's BGM with "silent howling".
- Fighting with level bosses in Reinforced+ difficulty now plays new BGM "Enemy Hall".
- Added 6 new universal BGMs.
- Implemented "pitch_randomizer" configuration option to enable an option to tweak the pitch of any Organya song to make it sound less boring.
- Implemented "randomSizeMode" configuration option to allow procedural maps to use other sizes than 118x118.
- Implemented "superHotMode" configuration option to enable a game mode where holding any keys stops the flow of time.
- Implemented "oneDamage" configuration option to make every player's bullet deal 1 damage.

Hey, this seems really cool!
If it's based on CSe2, is there any chance I could get a Linux build? I can't seem to get it working through wine.

Unfortunately, I have no idea how to build something for Linux system, while being on Windows. If you have any ideas, please tell me.
