Another strange shape modification, this one was made from insulation foam and based off of H. P. Lovecrafts horrifying monster, the alien Shoggoth!

"It was a terrible, indescribable thing vaster than any subway train—a shapeless congeries of protoplasmic bubbles, faintly self-luminous, and with myriads of temporary eyes forming and un-forming as pustules of greenish light all over the tunnel-filling front that bore down upon us, crushing the frantic penguins and slithering over the glistening floor that it and its kind had swept so evilly free of all litter. ”

— H. P. Lovecraft, At The Mountains of Madness

Interesting! Very creative. But how do you know when it's solved?

If it doesn't look solved, you could just squish it into a shape that does :lol:

As, many of you have noticed, it can't really be vividly scrambled, so a solved state--apart from the bottom face--is largely ambiguous haha
