Re: Treasure Eaters and Shikadi Masters

Oh yes you're right! And yet they've still managed to get to it before me a few times >: Definitely presents an added challenge in making levels with treasure eaters, unless you make it keyless of course.

Re: Favorite Keen game? Take Three!

I'm always torn between Keen 5 and 6. It feels like being forced to tell which of my children I love more, it's an impossible choice. I chose Keen 6 back in 07, and the reasons I loved it then haven't changed. To elaborate, though, I love the mixture of clunky Bloog technology with the extremely wei...

Re: Least favorite Keen game?

Keen Dreams, easily. The concept of fighting evil vegetables is cute, I suppose, and I do like some of the creative choices and design decisions, and certain levels are pretty cool (I've always liked Grape Grove). But the environments and visuals, to me, lack the vibrance and uniqueness that the oth...

Re: First Keen mod you played

I don't remember exactly which mod was the first I played--it would've been so long ago now. It was probably either Norp the Yorp 1: Inside Mortimer's Computer or XkyKeen1. Either way one thing I for sure remember was how enchanted I was with the visuals, the creative repurposing of the original ene...

Re: Treasure Eaters and Shikadi Masters

@Ceilick The Treasure Eater behavior, elaborate as it is, is also pretty hacky and definitely feels overly specialized--I wonder if it really was designed specifically for one level (and the item placement, accordingly, tailored for the weird behavior of the smirky boi)? I feel like they could've co...

Re: Treasure Eaters and Shikadi Masters

Thanks for making a separate thread about this. The teleporty bois need some love. Thanks Gridlock and Multimania for shedding some light on the Shikadi Masters and how they do their thing. I have to say making them inactive at distance massively neuters the potential threat they offer, as well as t...

Re: Keen 4 Least Favorite Level?

That’s amazing :eek Thanks for the explanation, it totally makes sense their movements would be driven by a hierarchy of item importance…wild too that they can be effectively exorcised out of existence this way. Quite an elaborate behavior for an enemy that’s barely in the game… As to the Shikadi Ma...

Re: Keen 4 Least Favorite Level?

This isn't a strike against the level itself but I think those smirking treasure-eaters should've been in at least another couple of levels. They have a GREAT design and their loot-pilfering is a rare mechanic in platformers (at least platformers of the time AFAIK). The teleporting enemies (treasur...

Re: OFF TOPIC THREAD: Where derailing the thread is impossible!

Can someone help me out here? This is pretty random, but does anyone know what the heck Paramultart's avatar is from? I've been trying to figure this out for a while. I'm assuming it's from some cartoon from the 80s or 90s judging by the art style. I've been asking my friends if they know, and whil...

Re: Keen

Because Tom needed something that was phonetically alliterative and "Commander Cool" would've been too boring and uncreative I always took it the way Nospike said: "keen" as a combination of sharp, enthusiastic, intense, that kind of thing. Interesting aside: way way back when I ...

Re: Keen 4 Least Favorite Level?

Right, right. :o I really need to respond to some posts in the other thread and do my own votes. I've been putting it off for some reason but I did write some things yesterday. I'll start the Keen 5 polls after I finish with that. I'll be waiting for it! I have so many opinions on Keen 5 and 6 maps...

Re: Avg. Difficulty of Keen1 of series?

I would definitely say Keen 2 is harder than Keen 1. I’d also say it has the best level design in the Vorticons trilogy and some of the best in the series so it’s well worth the trouble :) I’m not sure how Keen 1 is generally perceived here relative to the others. It’s definitely on the easier end o...

Re: 30 Years of Keen Dreams

Good old Keen Dreams I don't remember exactly when I first played it, my dad got it at the same time he got all the non-shareware Keen games (which was a very, very long time ago). It was always kind of the "other" Keen game to me, the one I enjoyed from time to time but never got engrosse...
