Spoiler discussion after the break.
Tom Francis: I was fine with the mass of giant spiders on 1-3, but the key being up in a locked-off attic was a nightmare. Trying to speed through that ground floor with the ghost on my tail caused me to misjudge a jump and impale myself. Anyone get the Udjat Eye and make it out?
Marc Laidlaw: This was my longest run yet in a recorded DC. Not talking makes a big difference. I thought I could throw the golden head and take out the bat. … There’s always a bat. I’m still in awe of how much better everyone is than I am. Outside the DC, I got through the mines for the first time last night…after sinking over 20 hours into the game. I’m old. That’s my excuse, and it gets to be a better and more believable excuse with time.
Anthony Burch: My cowardice outstripped my curiosity. I got extremely lucky and just straight-up forgot that the Udjat Eye even had a chance of spawning in that level, which caused me to skip all that shit and survive. This put me in the unenviable position of trying to find the Black Market without the Udjat, but I got incredibly lucky and found that (A) the market spawned in a spot that wasn’t 100% covered by ground tiles and (B) my wife is a ninja-eyed warrior who immediately noticed it when I didn’t.
