  • They prefer snow-person

  • The interaction at 10:32 makes sense, a portion of the log is over open water, while the other portion is on the log, thus the log on top goes in the direction of which portion is over water, due to unbalanced weight with the lower log essentially rolling to allow it to move. A similar interactions happens when you push a log next to a tree and push the tree over the log; where the bottom rolls to allow the top to slide over a space. There's no rolling animation for a stationary log, but this is essentially what happens from a physics-based view. Another way to look at it is that the unsupported portion of the log tips the log into the water, and the log slides to be fully in the water. Another way to think about it is that the game wants to preserve a long log as one piece over splitting into a raft and a log, preservation of a length is priority over splitting; the game just does this in a way that physically makes sense, using unbalanced weight and unanimated rolling. Using the point of intersection to form a raft, like what would happen with a log length of 1, wouldn't work because you'd end up with another portion of the log splitting and dropping into the water, and breaking the game wherever this specific interaction is used; even if it doesn't make sense, it's clearly planned. What's happening might not be super intuitive at first, but makes the most sense, but what advanced mechanics of this game are intuitive?

  • Huh, at 14:00 I actually solved that differently... I used a two-long horizontal log that extends out past the furthest left point of the right island as a stopper for the left island's log, which I had knocked over downward and rolled to the right. The right island's stopper log stopped the left island's roll just in the right spot to push down for the win.

    • Also, now that I ran out of islands I could do feasibly by myself, I'm really enjoying playing the game alongside you - when you get stuck, I've often found a way forward already, and vice versa. It's funny how different trains of thought can make certain islands that were previously seemingly impossible now trivial. Ex: the puzzle at 18:28 was actually one of my first ever meta puzzles - like #2 or something

  • Hey dude i don't know if you've already had this suggested to you, but if you like this game a lot then i would highly recommend a game called "stephen's sausage roll" it features kind of similar puzzles that leads me to believe that this game was actually heavilly inspired by stephen's sausage roll. but SSR also gets very crazy and meta in a similar fashion to this and baba is you towards the end, haha and the puzzles get similarly fiendish. seems like the exact kind of thing you would love. love the content dude! always have fun watching your vids :)

I long for the nostalgia of finding a game I really like and having it all be completely new to me. Aside from this series I got to experience with Tyler, I haven't felt that about a game since I was a child playing Super Mario Sunshine

  • It feels like the multi-island restart interactions are unpredictable and inconsistent. Sometimes restarting the source island of a raft has moved another raft in contact with it; but in this episode restarting a raft with a log on it keeps that log in place. What's going on game? What are the rules that determine this behaviour?

    WinterousWinterous3 kuukautta sitten
    • @Winterous I think the only reason they're hard to understand in this episode is because he's coming back to them afterwards and fragmenting the process. It would have been much clearer if he'd done it in one go but even then, as it is, it's still pretty clear how most of it works

    • Winterous is that in this episode? I remember that happening in the last episode with one raft. I think that was because it hit a rock in the ocean (like 1 tile out) that was technically part of the island even though it didn't look like it.

  • I disagree with your disagreeance! It makes perfect sense, the single logs doing the same dont do that because all the mass is on the same spot, doubles though will never make an even cross on a grid. What you are saying is like a magical saw came out of nowhere

    • Just a werid mechanic

      A aronA aron3 kuukautta sitten
    • @Ahsoka Tano Fair enough point. However i think the developers made a game rule where only parallel logs can make a raft. And maybe another rule is that if a log stops then it is to stay where it is at unless its a 2 log. so that kinda makes sense but than again idk and i dont think anyone cares lol

      A aronA aron3 kuukautta sitten
    • That happens when a rock is in the way

      Logan SkowronLogan Skowron3 kuukautta sitten
    • To be fair, a magical saw *does* come out of nowhere when you overlap double logs in only one square, where you end up with single-raft-single. However, I also think the mechanic as it is in the game makes more sense

    • Yes, I understand the joke but I'll try to make a valid reply. The word "Lol" looks like a person waving his arms around but we can't see his body. The reason is that the person is trying to escape the seamless lines of the internet. You can't see the rest of his body because either the white or black background is blocking the view. See, the person has cut a random line in the internet and stumbled upon this comment section, trying to ask for help after being stuck in the internet for who knows how long. In seconds, the cut will heal itself making the person stuck forever on the comment unless the user deletes the comment making him/her free from his/her predicament. So currently there are two people stuck on this comment thread.
