Love to see people look at this and point out their favorite maps
People write to me and say, "I’m giving up, you’re not talking to me." I just write them a simple message like, "Never give up," you know? And it changes their life

Abandoned Nuclear Facilities, Expedition Through an Urban Metropolis, Mountain Climb, Valley, and Blocky Robotics were cool.

The rest of the pack seemed very underdeveloped and unpolished.

And the Rock Cried Out is impossible I'm pretty sure.

Rearden. Metal. is just a tileset.

When the Powerlines Went Out was a cool idea.

all of it together made a very weird and interesting trip. It was cool to go from completely developed map to an impossible map, and then from there a map with only a ninja and a door and then from there to a tileset and back again.

individually these are kind of underdeveloped but it was way cool to play them all in a row. a true 'episodic' experience

The Astronomer's Welcome is my favorite map from that

Not bad for your first map pack, I might take a look at the expansion too.

*EDIT* I forgot to mention, the episodes were WAY too short

Orange- N cannot be spoken, or even thought about in my household. If my parents ever found out that I have played N since the cleansing, my life would be ruined. I keep the game in a multi-passworded .rar on a USB flash drive inside a locked boron alloy container that requires two keys to open (I keep one under the 64th hammer in my piano, and the other one in a small section of removable ceiling in the corner of the attic) hidden in a wall compartment lined with aluminium foil to prevent sonar detection behind my 375 kg cupboard, which is bolted to the floor - the only way to reach it is to abseil outside the fourth floor window and use a screwdriver to unfasten the screws holding the secret brick in place on the opposite side of the wall, but the screwdriver must be a specific type like the one I own, since if any other screwdriver comes into contact with the screws, the entire building will explode, as will a seperate charge placed inside the boron alloy container, rendering the USB useless. Even once the container is retrieved, attemping to open it without the arming pin in place (which is kept inside the battery compartment of my Maglite) will cause the water reservoirs lining the container to burst and react with the caesium lining, causing the container to burst into flames - the only way to prevent this is to use the arming pins to shut off the reservoirs with a sliding steel door. The USB itself contains an accelerometer linked to an explosive charge, meaning that if the USB detects its own movement speed as being greater than 5 cm/s, it will explode - any person attempting to steal it would have to move at a uselessly slow speed. Once plugged into a computer, the USB will upload a ghost virus onto it, leaving no traces. Only the right password can deactivate this virus, and if it is left on the computer for more than six hours, it will format all drives.

As you can see, I take my N playing very seriously.

Guiseppi- I'd much rather watch animals get boned in the ass.

Yanni- If it's glad, it's not rape.

Tsukatu- I refuse to use throw-away bags for such a frequent purpose as buying groceries. Instead, I've collected the hair of my two pet dogs and have woven them together into an all-natural, 100% environmentally friendly bag that I bring with me everywhere. And when I buy products that come in glass and plastic containers, I track down the company that packages them and ship back their containers so that they don't take up space in landfills.


Yeah, I use plastic.

Tsukatu- I hear Ebony Online is great, too. Cum save your princess, my lord!

Ska- UR MUM LIKE IS SPICY

Ska- why d i get the feeling what i typed will end up in the quote depository; or worse: someone's sig.

KinGAleX- I did it on the couch a little while ago.

Zeph- I got too pissed at the knife in the end so I just broke the wood on my knee

Pack was nice, others before me said what needed to be said.
Extension was good but short. :/
Botanic Garden is also incomplete. But I like Vineclimber. Nice and flowy.

Well, thanks everyone, especially Z3phyr for their feedback
I am not editing this one,as it will make life too confusing
however, I may come out with a second edition, featuring the best (as voted) from this pack, some personal favorites (all the kinks will be straightened out) and extra levels, including the extension

My latest map, 'Diamonds. Kill.' will also be added to probably the first episode
It can be found here: http://nmaps.net/156516
People write to me and say, "I’m giving up, you’re not talking to me." I just write them a simple message like, "Never give up," you know? And it changes their life
