Just bought the game today and I'm wondering if anyone wants me to add them as a friend and play multiplayer with them?
My friend code is:
Thanks for over 850 downloads everyone! Like I mentioned above, I have this map on several sites, just in case you're wondering why there's more downloads than views on this thread
Thanks for over 400 downloads everyone!
Thanks so much for over 150 downloads! I hope you're all enjoying the map! Episode 2 is now in the works!!
What is the Kitatcho Laboratories?
For those of you who don't know, The Kitatcho Laboratories was a puzzle map I released almost two years ago with the team known as Team Aylamow. Since then, the team has sadly disbanded as many of the members either grew tired of Minecraft or had personal things to attend to. Well, I'm now glad to announce that I have made a new team, Team Syllica!
And what better way to start off the new team than to go back to one of the best quality maps I've made and update it for 1.12, as well as make it better designed overall in general.
The main reason I wanted to return to this map was that Episode 2 was never made or released due to the team disbanding. I want to change that. I have many ideas that could go into Episode 2, but since it's been a long time since Episode 1 was originally released, I decided to give this map the old spit-shine treatment and make it better than ever!
So I hope you enjoy the 2017 edition of this map and look forward to the sequel we're going to work on in the future!
This map includes 15 puzzles, all of which test your problem-solving skills and tests your understanding of basic Minecraft mechanics. This isn't one of those insanely hard puzzle maps that force you to be a genius, but instead, it makes you think about how to get from Point A to Point B in a chamber. It's an enjoyable experience that ramps up in difficulty as you progress throughout the map.
The playtime of the map depends on how fast you are to solve a chamber. The average playtime I've witnessed during playtesting, could be anywhere between one hour, and an hour and a half. So it should keep you entertained if you want to play the map to just pass the time!
Can I record this map for a YouTube series?
Of course! I love watching people play through my maps and react to the things I've created! Plus it's a really helpful way for me to know if anything is too hard, or if something needs to be fixed! If you record this map, chances are I'll watch it!

An update long overdue...
Go for it! Our ideas were borrowed heavily from other games anyway. The core mechanics are obviously taken from Mario Kart, we took checkpoints and medal-based time trials from TrackMania, mirror mode was inspired by Super Meat Boy's dark levels, battle mode was influenced by Quake, the idea for nodes in the level editor comes from Cube 2: Sauerbraten, and oddly enough the idea for the level editor itself comes from Stepmania. There's probably a ton more that I can't think of off the top of my head, especially if you get into track design.
I just played through all of the tracks in singleplayer and this is really impressive. A few friends and myself are actually working on recreating the original Super Mario Kart in Minecraft, so after seeing this, I started getting some ideas. Do you mind if we borrow some ideas from this map to put into our own?
I'm looking for some custom Minecraft maps to do a series of video reviews of on my Minecraft channel
So if you want my opinion on your map, and want some free publicity, let me know what maps you want me to check out!
I'll private message you when the review is done so you can check it out, or you can subscribe to my YouTube channel to keep updated whenever I post a review!
