Re: The Sunnylands (K4 levelpack)

Hopefully I'll get to try this in a few days/by the end of the week. Before I design a level, my mind develops an image (and sometimes short clips) of what the theme and basic structure of the level would be. Most of the levels in the mod use inspiration from the original Keen games and even some mo...

Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi [WARNING: SPOILERS]

While Yoda's appearance itself was welcome, what little he said rally highlights what I hated most about the movie. First, he tells Luke to destroy the Jedi texts because, basically, "Rey already knows everything they could have taught her". Nearly everyone who dislikes Rey does so for this reason, ...

Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi [WARNING: SPOILERS]

I just don't understand what there is to like. I hated The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi is worse. I watched the whole Half in the Bag review, good video, Dr. Colossus. Really have to agree with their statement that the Star Wars we're getting is creatively bankrupt, and the saddest part of that t...

Re: Planet Of Agony (Keen 1 mod)

I'm not quite savvy enough with the new moderation controls to split this conversation to a new thread. I've alerted Fleexy to the need. Please bear with our digression, Keenrush! When I mentioned Atroxian Realm's check points I didn't mean to suggest that system was a failure or a negative. Often i...

Re: Planet Of Agony (Keen 1 mod)

Mod complete! Clever ideas in the ending sequence, I really liked the warp speed graphics lol For a moment the story was picking up with this sequence, but quickly and deliberately cut itself short, leaving me ultimately disappointed, especially in comparison with some your prior stories, which whil...

Re: Planet Of Agony (Keen 1 mod)

Just completed what I think is the second to last level (the really tall vertical one). I really liked this level because, despite being challenging and longish, while playing I felt like I had a good sense of my progress level because it's impossible to get lost in the level dimensions, and because...

Re: Question about Mortimer McMire's costume

Great info, had no idea about the Chicago Bears helmet. That being the case, it seems almost certain that the helmet as seen in Keen 5 only has the double M on it in order to explicitly indicate to the player who it belongs to (or it's just a mistake). Similar to how Keen's is missing the green G in...

Re: Planet Of Agony (Keen 1 mod)

I honestly thought that players will be rejoicing "cool, this level isn't ending yet, there's more!" :lol I'm sure some players are like this, who enjoy the extra challenge and satisfaction from completing such challenges, but Im not sure the keen community has many players like this anymore, or ou...

Re: Planet Of Agony (Keen 1 mod)

I'm about 3/4 of the way through, and I have to admit I'm getting pretty frustrated due to the number of times I'm dying late in the levels and dreading having to navigate back to the point where my progress was cut short. I'll try to be specific with my frustration, because I know you don't want to...

Re: Planet Of Agony (Keen 1 mod)

Just completed the fifth level. Very unexpected, very cool. I was getting worried I'd be stuck in what is quite frankly, and as the story indicates, intentionally, a really ugly world. After seeing the butler robot, which is a really clever animation, can confirm, these are your best sprites. Re dif...

Re: Planet Of Agony (Keen 1 mod)

Popping in to say congratulations on the new release! I played the first level so far, don't have much to comment on yet. Hope to play more in the next week or so. I do want to compliment the animations/spites I've seen so far. I know some time ago (lol years and years now :old ) you found sprites a...

Re: Idea for revitalizing the level pack scene

This is a neat idea. My first 'fantasy project' with such a tool is a chain-story style level where different people can add various sections to a single level and eventually complete it. Such things have been attempted in the past, but a program like this would ostensibly streamline the process imm...

Figured I'd resurrect this thread to announce that myself and at least TroubelsomeKeen (maybe a couple others?) are going to be online for some Netkeen today, 8/16. I'll be on discord between 4-7pm PST, if anyone wants to join in 8)

Rorie, your message showed up as deleted by sender in my inbox, so I never knew the content or what it was about. I'm sorry you feel slighted by me.

Re: Keen 7-9 revision

I think it's time to move on and make new stuff, personally. Honestly, this. While I would love to improve my work, make each episode more distinct from the original episode it modifies, make the story more cohesive, improve the graphics and level design, etc, all of that is really only because it'...
