Map Info

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!

Please leave any feedback and/or comments down below! Enjoy!

Map Details

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!

0 bendabeast found a bug where when u step on a presure plate in effect lvl you don't get the effect

0 HedCrafter The first puzzle was actually broken for me. The hopper dropped the item in the chest before the comparator could give an output. Perhaps it's just my game that's too slow to process it for the comparator though... Anyway, I had to drop a couple items at once to make it work.
Apart from that, this looks like it'll be a great map to play (I just started)!

0 Anon Incredible map!!! I've looked for a lot of maps that cause you to solve puzzles, and most are disappointments , such as the 'puzzle' map that has WAY too much parkour, or that are too short/easy. This isn't that map. It kept me thoroughly entertained and hooked throughout the entire thing. Looking forward to the sequel.

+2 Omiesha Teelel I found the secret about Catherine, TS-01, and after finishing the map I wanted to see her resting place in the cryogenic refrigeration wing but then I found out she died.

0 Mythical1300 This map was very fun! The puzzles were intuitive and moderately challenging. The narrator that leads you through the laboratory is very likable as well (despite the fact that he traps you in a freezer). I am glad that this map was updated for 1.12 and look forward to see more by your new team.

2017-08-12 11:08

0 Omiesha Teelel Forget what I said about puzzle 9, it is possible.

2017-08-12 11:07

0 MC Duelist OMG! I Love this map and I am speechless. If you ever make episode 2 in the future please let me know.

Here is Episode 1 on youtube. Thanks for letting me play.

0 Cadeee Hey I just finished making an episode of the map, really nice job by the way!
You can watch it for feedback if you'd like,

2017-08-11 18:04

0 GriefMaster123 Can I join the team? XD

2017-08-11 04:43

0 w1nDrunn3r360 I would rate this map a 10/10. However, after playing this I remembered that I had also played the first version. Luckily, the puzzles were still challenging. I would now rate this map a 20/10 for your hard work and dedication.

2017-08-10 14:32

0 A humble player Despite predicting the ending of this episode,I absolutely enjoyed the map.1.5 hours of mental entertainment (no pun intended).I would like to test the next map if possible.

2017-08-10 14:11

0 Tiraney It was a great map. You can clearly see that the concept is based on Portal (2). This map gave me a nostalgic feeling, thank you for that. But please make it more challenging in episode 2. As an experienced Portal player, I completed every chamber in 10 minutes or less.
Can't wait for upcoming episodes,


2017-08-10 10:23

0 Dj That was an amazing map. Just the right mix of difficulty to make it challenging yet fun.

2017-08-09 21:25

0 Roukicool This map is amazing!
Im looking foward for a sequel. :D

2017-08-09 19:58

0 Omiesha Teelel Also, you forgot to put some pressure plates that were supposed to give the announcer additional, not essential dialogue.
