I opened up Elma today and saw a level in place of the regular home screen—a level with no kuski or flower.

Some desperate text was scattered throughout the level.

I took the screenshot you see above, then the game immediately crashed.

I restarted the game and found all of my external levels replaced by a single new level:

SaveMe.lev

I played this new level for a few minutes, trying to finish. However, something in my brain clicked and I made a strange discovery.

Something is wrong...

Someone is in trouble...

You must save them...

Information:

  1. What is SaveMe.lev?
    • This is a secret quest where each kuski must struggle through to the end and answer the call for help.
  2. How do I play?
    • Scroll to the bottom of this post and download the attached level.
  3. What are the rules?
    • Please be fair to others playing through this quest. Consider the following:
      • Open levels in editor or offline, but never play levels online.
        • Shift + F12 to disconnect from server, OR
        • Change settings in eolconfig.exe to Play offline.
    • Do not cheat or attempt to skip levels.
      • Level names can be discreet or bizarre and do not follow any pattern.
      • Later levels have been designed to be unskippable, so do not try to find levels from later in the quest.
      • Elma community is generally good at keeping things fun, so don't spoil it for others!
    • When asking other kuskis for help, consider the following:
      • Feel free to give hints for levels 1-5 in private.
      • For levels 6-8 you may exchange ideas in private and get vague feedback on your thinking, but no solid hints.
      • After level 8 you are on your own. No hints or help.
      • Do not discuss level progress in this thread.
    • Do not reveal any information about the levels in this quest.
      • This includes amount of levels, any concepts within or any of the content.
  4. How many levels are there?
    • You will have to play to find out. Only the most creative thinkers will know.
  5. How will I know if I have saved the kuski?
    • If anyone manages to save the kuski, they will know.

~

Official Hints:

Level 1:
Read the title carefully, is it telling you to do anything?
Level 2:
Did you learn anything from the first level?
Level 3:
How long has it been since you have changed your settings?
Level 4:
Do not forget that there are other ways of changing your settings...
Level 5:
Do you really want to save me? Or are you just looking for easy answers? You are on your own...

~

Can you save the kuski?

Download the level to start.

Because I'm a man and don't need no damn instructions, I finished teh first lev online. I don't think it's too much harm though?

Anyway, seems max cool. I'm usually quite bad at puzzles like this, but I've got a few clues going on.

As long as noone can view the level you are in, you can play hidden etc. Just mainly a way to make sure no others have the option to cheat by viewing other levels (although the names would be almost impsy to pick compared to other levs).

All the best with your quests!

Hmm I don't think that one thing works that well because the outcome is a bit different every time you play. I hev no idea what the right answer is, tried a few lucky guesses but then figured I go buy a lottery ticket instead!

There is always a method included that takes all randomness out. If you are willing to look a little deeper... ;)

Yesterday brought us our first saviour! Congrats to Lukazz, who braved the trickiness and persevered through tough times! :D

I wonder if anyone will find all eggs. ;)

Hmm I guess I was just lucky with randomness, worked for me immediately. I wonder what's the proper method then.

Any issue with randomness, you can PM me, but if you look hard enough, all randomness is controlled. :)

A little reward waits for those who can brave it to the end...
