I've made this game open-source:

Update 1.01: added gmsched and fixed an easy skip in Z.

This is the game made for FM2020's Blind Needle Race. We all put in an exceptional amount of work to make this game as good as possible, so we hope you all enjoy!

A link to a YouTube playlist with the game's music is included in the ReadMe.

save for a few skulldude saves I didn't like, the needle in this is sublime and the final area is gorgeous.

A very well polished needle collab which served as the blind race game (and released with a couple nice extras).

The production value is phenomenal for a needle game, both in the major aspects with the backgrounds and tilesets to the smaller details - something I definitely appreciate.

Needle-wise, unfortunately for me it really felt like it put its worst foot forward, which gave me some doubts about the whole thing, though the early game isn't bad by any means. It does however, get a lot better, which makes the weaker segments stand out in their own way, with their first two stages being the longest, the least interesting and for me, felt to be the hardest by a fair bit.

After that though, it picks up and quickly establishes a full identity for itself, serving as a variety packed array of interesting gimmick or themed screens that are way more engaging.

Definitely highly recommended, though certainly not without its flaws. If, like me, you aren't enjoying the early game but are interested in quirky gimmicks and more dynamic design I'd definitely recommend sticking to it because what comes after does become worth it.

Everything is fun except for the very last screen, which has a gimmick I greatly disliked. YMMV I guess.
