This is my fan blog about the game Noita. I'm not great at the game; I just enjoy dying in novel ways, then sharing my photos of my trips, in the manner of an immortal tourist.

Oh, this is delightful. I, too, am not great at Noita; I got fairly deep a couple times when I was really hitting my head against it, but mostly by narrowly outrunning shit that was absolutely gonna kill me once it caught up. It's such a lovely chaotic mess of a game, and so utterly atmospheric for something so minimally pixely.

I think the thing where every pixel has a job might be what makes that atmosphere happen. A single acid pixel can melt a bit of rock, which can then make something fall down, so it just feels really absorbing. It's a great place to hang out!

But yeah, somehow I have never tried just diving straight down as fast as I can. It sounds like you've found it won't get you all the way to the end, but it sounds thrilling, so I'll give that a shot sometime.

Yeah, if you can get a real good drill build going you can really sort of eliminate entirely the question of "walls" or "floors" and move downward pretty aggressively as long as you're a bit careful near the temples. You can't outrun trouble entirely but you sure can get a head start.

I've resigned myself to the fact I'll never again get as far in Noita as when I had a thing that teleported me when I took damage, because the place where I would stop taking damage and therefore stop teleporting? the end of each level.
