So Baba is You is like, one of the best games ever. It's beyond genius.

So if you have it, I've made a level using the (beta) level editor. Sometime this year making and sharing levels will be officially supported, but you can kinda share and play them right now.

It's simple. Beat the level first, and I'll get you Halo Infinite when it comes out. If someone already beat it and you do it a different way (I'm sure there's stuff I've overlooked), you can get it too.

Max 2 though. So the first two people with different solutions can win. Just post a video or a VERY detailed description.

In steam, right click on Baba is You and choose properties. Choose the Beta Tab, and pick Beta unstable.

Then, download the level. Unzip, and place everything in the Data/Worlds/Levels folder. For OS X, right click the app and choose "show package contents", then go to Resorces/Data/Worlds/Levels. Who knows for PC. Just google it.

Now when you launch the game, you can pick "Play levels" Simply load up "Invisible Ink", and give it a go. Don't change anything. I'll know.

Interesting Contest!

Although this is a pretty cool idea, I'm unfortunately gonna have to pass—while I don't doubt your praises, I've got too much on my plate—both in RL and even more in the gaming side—to learn a new game right now. Even though I see it's one of those old-school arcade type games, I can already tell it's a well-detailed puzzle game, and my brain fries just from working out. XD

Good luck with it, though! I already know your level is gonna be a doozy. ;-)

Probabilities.

I've got to pay $15 for a game to play your level for a chance to win another game? I dunno. This sounds like something the ESRB should hear about. Definitely some chance/gambling aspects here.

Slippery slope, Cody. Slippery slope.

I love a good puzzle game and this challenge actually sounds fun, I just lack the free time.

I've been playing Baba is You since… October-ish. And I'm only about halfway through the 250ish levels. It's quite challenging, but whenever you have an epiphany it feels really good.

I also recently discovered something that blew my mind even more than it already was. The levels of meta the rules can change is astounding.

SPOILERS

SERIOUSLY THIS WAS COOL TO FIGURE OUT

The map screen is itself a level you can win by manipulating the levels with the 'level' noun inside of each level. Woah.

Baba is Finished

So ten months later I've finally finished Baba is You. The REAL ending. To even say what that is or how to get it would spoil so much of the discovery of the game. It's just an onion of multiplicative design.

Hands down the best puzzle game I've ever played.

You should give it a go and actually finish it cheapLEY.

This ended up being the way to go. On hard levels, you could just pick up, try some things for a while, then put it down. Then try again when you feel like it or in between things.

Some of the crazier stuff might take you a while… a few levels took me days each. But each time you solve it you feel like a genius. There’s also the fact that HOW you solve some levels matters in the future… so you may have to work out which levels you have to re-solve, and what you need to do differently.
