You're very good at utilizing your palette, Paramultart. :) The graphics were impressive and easy to read--I was never uncertain about what was what, which has been one of my biggest criticisms in other mods. Good work!

When I first played Keen5, I pronounced Shikadi as "SHICK-uh-die," rather than the common "shi-KA-dee." Oops! :) My name, XkyRauh, is easy. It's like "SkyCow," but with an R instead of the C." I always thought Xax was pronounced "Zacks." But I also did Orbatrix as "ORB-uh-tricks," not "or-BAY-tricks."

Once you hit the G which is four ledger lines above the Treble Clef staff, there are no "official" fingerings on how to proceed higher. Everything beyond that is fakery and tricks that vary from player to player and model to model on the clarinet. I was never a very good soprano/B-flat clarinet play...

Nintendo is a company out to make money. In order to make money, your games have to sell well. For a long time, their consoles stood on their own, supported by Nintendo-made games, because 3rd parties weren't interested (see: N64, GCN). This meant that the pressure on the 'old standards,' like Mario...

I wouldn't call it 8-bit, it's definitely smoother and nicer looking than that. It's an awesome game but ppl on the internetz rave over this thing like it's the rebirth of Balder. I'd say that Cave Story gets such wild acclaim for a few reasons. First, it does the "linear route with exploration" th...

Your incorporation of the Standard Galactic Alphabet in a way that adds to the comic while not being absolutely necessary for the communication of the joke is fantastic. :) I know I always say "excellent work," but I mean it! :)

That "1 row, 32x32 map, 1 day" thing sounds fun!

I'm sorry I didn't get to contribute to this. I started on one, but got distracted by other things and missed the deadline. I didn't have much done besides the tileset, anyway. :)

what really pisses me off about those "Ceilick's is the only good mod" opinions out there is that 90% of guys saying that haven't even tried any other mod yet. Don't get me wrong, Ceilick's mods are awesome, and Ceilick is freakishly skilled in making mods, but there ARE other good mods too. Thank ...
