Well... crud. I'm excited that the ruins now regenerate, but I've already smashed every ornate chest I came across. This hurts so badly...

c_spawn()

Chests aren't meant to be hammered. It's like hammering pig houses.

Yeah, I'm gonna have to do that I guess. Don't really want to though. The fun part is gonna be running through the labyrinth again and trying to remember where they were originally.

I have been left with two thoughts after all this:

  Reveal hidden contents

Are these really statues. Or the bodies the ancients left behind? Just what is thulecite?

  Hide contents

If the ancients underwent some "sort of thing", presumably becoming shadow monsters. (or are they even becoming shadows, or being used to like "hatch" them or something) Has Charlie undergone something similar? Just why, does Maxwell say:  "I know why you led me back here." "But it won't work." Does she want Maxwell to undergo it?

It seems like some answers are being given, but in it's place more questions!?!?!

I thought this initial update would sate my hype, but all it has done is amplify it!

 

Oh my god the isopods shells were turned into thulecite from the fuel and used it to make a giant civilization, but somehow overused the fuel they had and killed themselves off, turning them into nightmare fuel. And that dead civilization haunts us throughout the entire game. Is this how *they* make the energy? 

Seriously though Maxwell literally says "Such a fine material" when you inspect those statues it's the creepiest thing. 

Either Charlie wants her shadow half removed or her shadow half wants the rest of her body turned into fuel so one of the two has total control.

I really hope we get some cinematic on this.

Wow the writers are really pushing the H.P. Lovecraft's "Shadow Over Insmouth," inspiration when it comes to the ancient civilization lore. I kind of assumed that was the direction they were going with before hand. However it seems to be closer to that premise with this update. Now I am wondering even if it's Charlie we will really be facing in the end, or some other eldritch creature (that has taken over her body).

Huh, strange.  Maybe it's because you're in the Ruins, and not the normal caves?  We didn't try it in the Heart.

Yeah, that works :)

Which tentacle hole is it ? I've jumped through all and haven't come across the atrium

You'll just have to get lucky. My tentacle was in a stalagmite biome.

So currently you can put any mineral, it seems, into the atrium gateway and it becomes a key. I'm assuming this is part of the whole incomplete business.

Spoiler

On a side note, the ruins activate when the key is inserted.

Where this gateway leads seems to be the source of the power here...

Woodie also states: 

ATRIUM_KEY = "Got it from that big bony hoser.",

So it would seem that the stalker will end up dropping this at a later date.

So it would seem.

Note - since you can pick where and when to spawn it, you can exploit the Stalker pretty easily by spawning two at once.  Just get one of them to attack the other, and since they're evenly matched whoever wins will only have a few hitpoints left.

Actually, you can put in almost anything you want into it right now. I got a good laugh out of it when I thought it'd be amusing to give it some Ice Cream. Then, the Ice Cream was somehow turned into a key.

Give it a potato cup. Only a potato cup shall do.

Maybe a modder could give you a better command to spawn them at random or something. So you have them back and you have the surprise.

So I wonder if this means that the goal isn't initially to fight Charlie but rescue her from Their influence. It could be that Their tact in turning Charlie into a compliant puppet is to manipulate her. Whisper in her ear and add more fuel to an already burning anger towards Maxwell.

I can't wait too see all the new cool stuff the Ruins got. Tonight is the night.

Anyway i like the fact that you can kill AntLion now, that is huge and the fight is kind cool and easy. Thanks a lot for that.


Let the Game Begin!
