All I'll say is that neither Mink, Tulip, or myself have managed to beat the boss level without saving.
This sounds like it's going to be an epic boss battle. I'm excited! :celtic

It's good to know the fight with Mortimer will be as hard as a fight with a universe-destroying genius should be.

Other then the Keen 9 staff, I plan to be the first Keener to complete the game on all 3 skill levels! Then again, I am being a little cocky! :rollin

I know I will complete it before Ceilick will. He hates playing his own mods!

I can understand that, as developer you play it a million times until it gets released. (If you're thorough, and we are)

Ceilick: "hmm, open thread..." *click*

BOTB Thread: *Instantly becomes most popular topic on the forum*

:lol

Anyway, to join the discussion, I will state the obvious! I will NOT be the first to complete BOTB (especially not on all 3 skill levels)! :P I still can't wait for it to be available, and I hope it may be even better than the rest of the TUIT games!
/"state the obvious" comment
Combine Garg and Apples in a bowl, simmer over medium heat for several years. Season with a pinch of regret.

We'll see about that ;) Though you do have an advance as I'm mostly stuck at the army :(

Ceilick has told me on a number of occasions that he does not like playing his own mods. Already knowing what to do and where to go (in other words no exploration), takes the fun out of playing as he put it.

If you go back a few pages, Ceilick said it will probably only be a couple of weeks to allow players some time to explore the mod. Then he will make them available. Then again, a few of us already know how to reactivate the cheats. But to be fair, I do not plan on doing so. At the very least, I will wait until I have beaten it on easy and normal before I reactivate the cheats like I did with Aliens Ate My Babysitter... Again .

As I said, it is my plan. That does not mean someone else will not beat me to it.

Ceilick, you did say Keen will be visiting a space station and three different planets including the Shikadi homeworld?

Could people stop trying to figure out how the final boss works? That's missing the point.
