Community Map: The Escape

Remember kids, school is important. Do not neglect it. It will steal your time if you don’t get rid of it. Escape! Burn it down to the ground! Make school wish it never tried to educate you!

Actually, running away from school is probably a bad idea. Think of all the physics bugs we’d have if nobody had taught thewreck the arts of science.

With tests and exams all over the place, I’ve been unable to procure this week’s intel. Boo. Before running away from the fierce assault of rotten tomatoes however, I’m leaving you with a fresh community map that gives you something proper to escape from. Appropriately, it’s called The Escape, a challenge map by FabiotheTurtle! His species is not the fastest to run away from mad scientists, so he’s giving you an unusual escape method: The Predator. Here’s the trailer!

Featuring cutscenes along with some quite unique gameplay, there’s definitely an amazing amount of work put into this. Get this map and many others at the Cobalt Vault!

Intel Report: Rolling is an Art

It’s art time!

Last week, I promised to steal Oxeye’s level art creation process. I can’t believe it, but the lab technicians actually discovered my intentions! They hired a team to counter–hack. Turns out they’re pretty cool people, so we joined forces and formed the Cobalt Investigation Agency! Comrades, get out your inner Leonardo. We’re going to the gallery.

…Just pretend that was cool, okay?! What do you think I am, a wandering wizard of words or something?

First, here’s my favorite piece of fan art as warm–up!

Sand in the Gears

Here comes a community update:

Hi all!

Apparently a metalface has been marooned on a tiny island in the middle of nowhere. Surviving in harsh environments with no food or water is not an issue for cyborg metalfaces but how will it avoid succumbing to insanity? How can it trust what it sees with its own two eyes/light bulbs? How will it return to civilization? These questions needs to be answered! (Looking at you Fabio).
