I've heard of this level, but I can't find it anywhere. Can someone help me? Thanks.

Where did you hear of it? Because I haven't heard of it. Maybe it's one of the secret levels...

There are things that are unknown even to me; this just happens to be one of them.

You'll have to see if you can get in touch with The Lurker. He's the only one Dikiyoba has seen mention it.

It's not a level, it's a hidden adventure text game. It may only be playable in the shareware version, but I wouldn't know.

HINT : To find it, select the blank spot in the options (or something like that) menu with the up and down arrows of your keyboard, then press enter.

EDIT : All right, it's in the 'configuration' menu. The blank spot is below 'Done', and can only be selected wth the down arrow of your keyboard.
Note that I never managed to finish Castle Ethilo - I solved a few puzzles, but there seemed to be all kinds of problems/bugs, such as not being able to get out of the castle once you enter it. As far as I know, it could even be unfinishable, but I'm not very good at this kind of game.

It's an easter egg, but it works only in SubTerra 1.0, not in 2.0 and later (specifically, I had rewritten the kernel from scratch, and I never bothered putting this routine back in). However, the game and its interpreter can be found on my website (crystalshard.net) under utilities.

While you're at it, Radiant, a few suggestions for the CrystalShard site:

1) Where'd the original Subterra link go? Now it just says Subterra Two and your other games... I think they should be seperated.

2) You should have a seperate Hall Of Fame for Subterra Two. I can't imagine how confusing it would be if you had them both on one page.

And just a few questions/comments:

1) W..Warthogs? That had me laughing for quite a bit. Now, what was the date that you released it to the public? Just curious.

2) You made the game A-Maze-ing? I came across that game a few years ago (unless I'm terribly mistaking this for another game named A-Maze-ing) and I absolutely loved it. Great work.

Keep posting,

EDIT: So it happens that I was wrong and I was mistaking it for another game... I just downloaded Amazeing and it still is a pretty good game.
