OK, found the 'oh-so-hidden' secret room and if I go through the eyes I can go to infinity and beyond.
But how do I get behind the fireplace?
It can't be that difficult.

Why do you want to get behind the fireplace?

For the same reason people climb mountains,
dive to the Titanic or send probes to Jupiter.
It's there.

btw this will be the same reason why people buy your future games

(Or if your question was meant less metaphysically:
you can see that there is a room behind the fireplace
through the slot in the neighbouring room.)

Thanks for considering my post.

Probably the only way would be to go through one of the walls that doesn't have the collision detection on, and try and move the chappie into the room - assuming the room actually exists and isn't 'faked'.

@ haggisman & MrTAToad

No, I also could not find another wall without detection.
So, its probably just a piece of space that was left over
while programming this nice little demo.

But thank you for taking the time.

You can only get there Christmas Eve when Santa opens the fireplace up so he can climb down the chimney

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But in practice, there is.

The secret room is found after pushing the blocks.
The other secret rooms are found in the secret room.
The other other 'secret' room is begining to sound like it doesn't actually exist.

Download the source (it's on the FTP server for all) and look at the code/models and find out if it's a real secret fireplace room or not!

Cheers,

Walkthrough for Room Demo

If you are standing in front of the fireplace, turn left.
You should see a dark square in the wall.
This block can be pushed (with ctrl + up) into another room.
Push it as far as possible.
1) Once again you will find another dark square on the left wall that leads into a green room with eyes. You can go through the eyes into the eternity of basicspace.
2) But if you turn to the right there is a narrow opening in the wall (adjacent to the fireplace). You can see through it a red room that is behind the fireplace. But I couldn't enter it.

This seems to be a brutal violation of the unwritten law that every visible room should be accessible!
(Don't take this serious, please!)

And who is this grinning guy over the fireplace? Q?

Chris

@ Fireburst
No use waiting for Santa here. In Germany Santa comes through the door. (In southern Germany he doesn't come at all.)

Well curiosity got the better of me. Here's the room demo code with dbpro specific stuff remed out. I stuck in some free camera movement too so the level can be explored. Didn't bother to study the code to see if there is a way in but there doesn't seem to be much in the room anyway.

Btw the media seems to be included with the demo as well as the source.
