That new boss looks spooky as hell. Great job on the design. I'm excited to see the full breadth of his powers. Don't go easy on us. Also, does anybody have an upload of the ruins theme yet? I'm not able to log into steam at the minute and I'm curious what it sounds like! :)

Anyone know how to get to the atrium? It has no connection to any other land and I've tried a few methods.

You have to kill one of the Big Tentacles, and then jump into the pit it leaves behind.

The quotes. THE QUOTES. 

Some of my favorites: (Immense Spoilers)

  Hide contents

(Wilson)

ATRIUM_RUBBLE = 
        {
            LINE_1 = "It depicts an old civilization. The people look hungry and scared.",
            LINE_2 = "This tablet is too worn to make out.",
            LINE_3 = "Something dark creeps over the city and its people.",
            LINE_4 = "The people are shedding their skins. They look different underneath.",
            LINE_5 = "It shows a massive, technologically advanced city.",
        },

  Hide contents

(Maxwell)

ATRIUM_RUBBLE = 
        {
            LINE_1 = "A picture of the city, before the fuel.",
            LINE_2 = "We all know what happens next.",
            LINE_3 = "They gained such an enviable power...",
            LINE_4 = "I know why you led me back here.",
            LINE_5 = "But it won't work.",

        },

  Hide contents

(Stalker!? IT SPEAKS!?!)

STALKER_BATTLECRY = { "Huurgh...", "...(growl)...", "...gruuuugh...", "Hrrgh...", "...grraaugh...", "...(rumble)...", "...gruh..." },
    STALKER_PLAYER_BATTLECRY = { "Huurgh...", "...gruuuugh...", "...grraaugh...", "...(gurgle)...", "...(crunch)...", "...Y-yy...", "...W-wwh..." },

So the people were mutated by the fuel and not just lobster people by nature. Also are Wilson and Maxwell unconsciously displaying the forbidden knowledge?

If it really is just this, Unnatural Selection lore gets fuelled. If it goes further, depending of how, it might be ruined :)

Wilson perhaps, but Maxwell seems to be well aware of it...

Actually. I don't think they were normal people. Here's Webber's:

ATRIUM_RUBBLE = 
        {
            LINE_1 = "It's a picture of some bug people.",
            LINE_2 = "This picture's all messed up.",
            LINE_3 = "There's a lot of black goop in this picture.",
            LINE_4 = "A picture of bug people escaping their bug outsides!",
            LINE_5 = "A picture of a city. It looks like a nice place to live.",
        },

Oh...

That doesn't mean they never were people. Y'know, years of mutation and all.

That's it? Here I am killing the guardian, telefocusing the shadow atrium and searching for the other side of the gateway but apparently all you need is a wormhole. Thanks for the help I'm going in.
