Sourcefore emigration

It is really adviced you don't download from Xye is a very niche project so it is unlikely sourceforge installed their malware in our downloads, however, I still advice any potential user that might be about to download to instead wait and be safe. In the following week we are moving the project to another hosting service. This is a move to protect our few users. Given the circumstances, "don't download anything from sourceforge" is a good safety advice in general. To be honest, as developers we are not comfortable at all contributing to this platform either.

There hasn't really been any recent development in the game itself. However, we have been working in a teleporter-themed level pack which we might release as we start over in the new host.

Level - 4corners

Adrian Currier has kindly shared a new level with us: 4corners.

This level has 4 challenges (and a bonus star!). It is interesting in which you will face two bots and one of those "tiger" monsters that can be so nasty. All while solving the four puzzles in the correct order.

Another short level. It is completely based on a single trick that you need to pull in order to take that green arrow to the marked area. Hope you enjoy it.

Level: Stop that cab!

This week's new level is a short one. It has 5 available different solutions, although 4 of them are quite quick to do and require coordination. The star challenge requires you to get creative and needs far more coordination though. I am trying to make new lower difficulty levels for the smaller level numbers.

New level: Helping Hand

It is time for a new level.

I wanted to give the level a classic Kye vibe but still using the Xye objects. Getting 6 emeralds is actually going to be easy, but the other 2 emeralds will really change things. I couldn't manage to do my first objective: A level using only purple a green objects, but I got close.

New level: The plan

Here is a new level, I just made it this morning and I liked it. There is a warm up puzzle at the beginning, but then it goes full on with the true objective of the level, you will need to plan ahead of time so that you don't get stuck.

If you were looking for development news. This is how the level looks like in a new skin that we hope will be released eventually:
