The screen is supposed to black. You navigate based on sound, and I can hear my steps fine, though the steps themselves don't help much, it's when you bump into walls that it's clear you can't move any further in that direction. :) I'm not sure if the medals work though, I thought I cleared the first level (I made it out of the room), but didn't get one, so... maybe they don't, or maybe there's more than one room per level.

It seems like a bit of an aggravating game though. Might be fun to play in complete darkness, with speakers turned real loud. ;)

Some medals didn't register for me though. 300 damage, walking into the forest for the first time...
Any way to "re-register" them without having to start a new game up?

Finally, I'm really excited about it. Too bad I still have to work for 8 more hours before I can start playing it.

I have the same problem, I unlocked 10 medals but none appeared on my profile, why is this happening?

I believe there's a problem that's affecting certain games. See: http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1330712

I'm getting that too...although if they register somewhere it means that they can put them on your profile properly once they fix it (since there is "proof" that you got them).
I remember older EBF games having a "resend medals" button.
By the way, OHMAHGAWD EBF4!
I played the first 3 to death, I even wrote an immense guide for #2 (I believe it was the longest on NG at the time, I don't know if that's still true).
Let's see if I can get all medals for this one (probably not, lol :D).

Better think twice unless you want to spend hours on end grinding to Level 40 and setting up meticulously just to deal 3 million damage to something with a powerful attack.

Well, keep in mind that I know the game mechanics very well, although if it gets too ridiculous I won't finish it on maximum difficulty, but it hasn't been TOO hard yet (I bet it will be quite soon though).

Any new bugs notwithstanding, most of those old bugs with the medals should finally be fixed.

Some things to remember... if an author or mod un-publishes a game you have medals in, your score will drop until they re-instate said medals.

The new global stats page updates hourly, it's not real time.

And finally, there's probably new bugs... this IS my handiwork after all....

I'm not sure if this was intentional, but the new medal stats feature completely reveals the "secret" medals.

So like I said, there was a new bug. Anything that was unlocked before about an hour ago didn't get applied to your total scores. Frankly its not something I can easily update automatically, so if you want your totals updated, shoot me a PM with a link to the medal that didn't apply and I'll get you adjusted. Offer is only valid for medals unlocked today that didn't apply!

Also I had to fix the bug that shows secret medal details, but I got a small compromise. At least now you can see the name of the medal, so you'll know what to ask about if you need help unlocking it.

actually, to be more accurate, the bug only effects games you never played before today. So just link me to the actual game and I'll just apply any medals for the entire game.

Further clarification... if you unlocked a medal in a game and it didn't unlock to your profile, thats not a bug on our end, its probably a broken medal. I found a couple that look like they used to work but the last time they were unlocked was like a year ago, so I marked them as broken.
