Nathaniel Smith has put together a really interesting remix of Pathways. I really recommend checking it out if you like the original! I don’t want to spoil anything, so I won’t say more than that.

You can download it here, and read his thoughts about it here.

    Slaying that monster feels all the more badass now 😀

    Terry, I took this opportunity to play Pathways again for the first time in about 6 months and… gosh, was that devastating. It doesn’t have anything to do with the altered content here (even if it’s well done) ; I just realize that the game has grown on me, and that I have deeply internalized each of its components. Whereas in the beginning I was among the ones who found it “interesting”, the expressiveness of the artwork and dry fatality of the events just hit me square in the face today, and I can think of very few games that felt so true and had such a strong effect on me. Even if it’s already been out for some time, thank you for creating this brilliant work that is also very accessible to skeptics.

    For some reason, this modification affected me a lot more as well. Teared up quite a bit at quite a few parts, not even sure why (the knight who says “It’s too powerful…” for example)– I’ve no clue why that is but it really ‘got’ me. I should really play your games more often, I find them so refreshing.

    I was a little shy to mention crying, but seeing Josiah’s description of a response that was very similar to mine… maybe the effect has something to do with the mods after all?
