In 2015 I honestly didn't think anyone would ever finish "Black Cyalume [Trial]". Five years later that track has three finishers, and I even went for it myself finally and managed to finish with a time of 15 hours. It's insane how much the general skill of the community has increased, as that track was definitely not built with finishability in mind. This track here won't stay unfinished for over three years like it's predecessor. Even three days might be optimistic, taking into consideration that even the cursed trial Zurg got finished a couple months after its release, and the fact that this track is 'only' about 25% harder than the original. It's incredible to see the dedication some players still have for this trackstyle. I was thinking of quitting trial after Nine Hundred, but all of a sudden the community is more alive than ever, which is just amazing to see. Guess I'll stick around for a bit

10 checkpoints. Nearly every cp has some kind of reference to the original BC cp. Yes, there's an uber again.

Back in 2015 I rated the original 9.5/10. Today I'd rate that track 6.5/10 out of the currently finished tracks. This is like 8/10.

NEONv2, which is an edit/remake of NeonGlowSticks Mod. The mod was made by   paxiuz.

Special Thanks

  paxiuz for the mod!
  Nawk,   Lain.,   Loe and   Nixion for betatesting and giving creative input and feedback! Lain and Nawk also drove replays for the video, so extra special thanks for that


Q: will you try it?
A: definitely
Q: why is BC uncompetitive?
A: good question
Q: what happened to the cat?
A: we don't talk about that

hard to believe it's been 5 years since BC. maybe because we haven't heard much from it until that kanapesh guy finished it.

Hey, you. You're finally awake. You were trying to cross the border, right? Walked right into that MoonShadow ambush, same as us, and that RPG builder over there.

It somehow looks less creative than your recent trials – not saying it is not creative though, only less so
  simo_900 17-Apr-2020
it has more 'classic' trial stuff on purpose

I see, that does explain a lot c:

thx for accepting the music suggestion :>

These parts made the experience more random than what I intended. Updating sucks, but original CP7 was just pure demotivation, which shouldn't have slipped through pre-release testing, but it did. CP6 change is a minor quality of life thing that barely makes it easier, I included it as it also helps reduce the randomness/annoyance of that section.

It took 2 attempts and a combined total time of 70 hours of driven time, but it's finally over.
~ 32:08:25.52 ~

This run had like 10 hours of wasted time, mostly on CP2, CP5 and CP8.

If I were to play this...
I would probably choose one of the following:

1. Not download the mod
2. Put my screen on black and white
3. Dress like a mad 80's hippie and take some kind of substance* for the full experience

Haven't made my decision yet. Either way, it's a mad track by a madman.

*not recommended - use at own risk - don't do drugs kids
