Granted. It's easy, but they all come out looking like this:

Re: Keen 1 Redrawn

to give an example here's a quick and dirty colour swap: https://i.postimg.cc/qvk3tBQr/k1redrawn-yellow.png I was aware of the palette patch, and considered using it but I wanted to push the limits of EGA without changing the palette. That and the graphics I've drawn are tailor-made to the default ...

Re: Keen 1 Redrawn

Well someone has been trying to convince me that the yellow sky might look good after all. https://i.postimg.cc/rpMDRLkc/k1redrawn-yellow.png I'd probably only do this in the version with extra tiles because a few locations are dependent on the gray sky. The tile-for-tile remake would just keep the ...

Re: Keen 1 Redrawn

Thanks guys :D Out of curiosity are you thinking of changing the sky texture at all? Obviously there's not a whole lot of feasible options with 16 colors and a simple reskin but I always felt like the gray sky was also not very Martian (and kind of lifeless besides). Well, I guess yellow is the clos...

Keen 1 Redrawn

While there's been attempts to remake Keen 1 in other engines, I'm making a skin mod that replaces all of the graphics of the original Keen 1 for fun. I'm planning to do the same for Keens 2 and 3 after this. Here is some of the work I've done. A lot of the graphics here still haven't been replaced ...

Re: Misconceptions

Perilous Pit? More like barrel-ous pit.

Also, probably the strangest misconception ever; I thought the person in the mangling machine was Keen's mom washing dishes.

Re: Marooned on Mars - Galaxy Mod

I don't like the "Vorticon Keen" style - it's so ugly, so empty, so backgroundless, makes so little use of the really not so small capabilities of EGA palette ... If you're interested in the gameplay of Keen Vorticons with better graphics, I'm currently working on a skin mod for Keen 1 th...

Rick is the best original character in a Keen mod.
Most characters created for Keen mods I've seen lack much of a defined personality. And Rick has a distinct and hilarious personality. There should be more characters like him in Keen mods.

Re: Recreated Keen 4-6 Source Code

There should be recreations of patched mods using this.
It would make the mods more stable, and it could bring back ideas that were scrapped only due to the limitations of patching. For example, Keen 6 mods could have internal help added.
