Tip: If you give a Muncher tile custom graphics, it will still act like a coin when a silver P-switch is active, whether it looks like a coin or not. ExAnimation solves this problem.

Latest News: OWDC Reminder!
Here is a small reminder for you all that there is just over one week to work on your OWDC entries (remember? We extended the deadline!) - Good luck!
While we finish tabulating the final results for the 2021 Kaizo Level Design Contest, the judges wanted to find a way to highlight levels in ways that wouldn't have otherwise been celebrated in the scoresheet. So we've created something new: the JUDGES' CHOICE AWARDS - a celebration of levels that achieved in ways that don't fit our normal categories of awards or trophies.
Due to many people asking for it, the Overworld Design Contest deadline has been extended by one week. The new deadline is now the 27th June, 20:00 UTC! Good luck and looking forward to seeing your entries.
