For Tar, I will walljump forever long

Have you ever loved something so much you were inspired to write a poem about it?

Prisoner #10326 might be related to Shakespeare in some way because of his fancy mustache! This is a revelation that the roots of greatness lie in hair follicles! Or maybe that it sends telepathic messages to the pen and paper?

Our friend has a serious problem. Or not a problem, but a formidable love of tar, from which blocks are formed to lay a path can present a road block or a helping hand!

At one point, the dev team thought, “how awesome would it be if players could walljump?” After we tested the walljump (in the game), we found out that it didn’t utilize the benefits of co-op play like other features (like the boat) would. We wanted to highlight the fact that the mechanics work better when you play together! Our solution was to limit the walljumping to a certain block type, so the tar block was chosen because of its sticky factor! Players can now take advantage of pushing against the tar blocks to slide down and retrieve gems or balls of yarn in mid-air!

How will Prisoner #10326 deal with this dilemma? To love tar, or to not love tar, that is thy question. Everything about the way tar moves and sounds–so slippy and drippy, brings memories of a favorite treat, will help our friend slow down and enjoy the ride. It is advised not to stay in one place for too long as vicious animals will get hungry…

Watch how Prisoner #10326 and relationship with Tar blocks stack up!
