Thank you Semjay! Of course I could not resist ;). I have not solved it all but I did the first 'task' and then ran around, jumping and running into walls and puddles etc. No bugs found so far :D . It is a real alien place an a bit scary :? :lol: . I will not spoiler anyone here, can just say try it out folks!

Semjay, I have no idea how you're maintaining such an impressive output so rapidly, but thanks and congratulations. I enjoyed this one; quite a lot to see and inspect.

Since we're betatesting, here are a few notes:

Hi Semjay,

I responded to your PM. It is funny because now that I read the description left by Emor D'ni Lap, I'm wondering: "Did I really explored everything?" :lol: I guess that is why you need a lot of beta-testers because each will find nuggets that other won't find.

Here's the part of that said PM I deem shareable, I kept only my overall impression of the age:

Thank you to everyone who was kind enough to test drive for me.

I have made quite a few changes, both visible and "under the hood."

I have had real trouble with the footsteps sfx on that ladder (you know, the one with the water splash fx halfway up) and have been unable to fix that. The other thing is the sky rotation is not a constant speed and I have been unable to fix that either.

But I've done pretty much everything else.

I have amended the link in the first post (above) to the latest version. Do take another look,

Many thanks everyone!

I visited it the other day, it's very well done ! :) Nice ambiance, and solving puzzles with the notes scattered everywhere is fun. I managed to complete it without any bug, so that's cool. Well, just the sky animation which is a bit strange, but well.

Hello again Semjay, nice work on your new age, a bit different to your previous work but fun to play all the same. I was wondering if this age is an expanded test age, all builders have one, they get so full of objects & experiments that they turn into a full playable age. Well done, all the best.

Congrats Semjay :)

your new age is wonderful. I have had a lot of fun to solve this awesome puzzle.
I like the animation at the beginning. I realized that it was the same animation as with the stone in the watcherspup.
That is incridible cool. I think that can we only do with 3DsMax. That is a a little bit sad. I would realy like such animation in Blender.
I like also that we have to get power first befor we can do anything.
All in all you give us another great age.
As Sirius said, the horizon and the water is a bit fast. But hey, i love this age.
The machinery, the pipelines feel a little bit like steampunk and that is what, i realy like.

Dulcamara :)

This is hopefully the last update!

A few more minor bugs have been fixed and I added more sign posts for those who got lost.

I have updated the link in the first post above.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments and enthusiasm.
