@Roobar & @55Aavenue
thanks for your advice. that's exactly the path I've already trod. of course I intend to keep on doing so.
I'm just looking for further ideas, which will help me to come up with new stuff to build a level around. I for one find it easier to define a level topic beforehand and subsequently doing the level design in line with this theme. so if you should have a suitable topic besides the ones already mentioned above, I would very much like to hear about it.

and yes I'm still working on this! thanks for all your kind words / motivation boost! It's always good to hear that people find interested in what I do.
current status: 20 creatures animated.

Cool.What's the status of the game?

I'm glad you didn't give it, Nisaba. This mod must definitely be done.
Yeah, piece of cake!

Fantastic, ideed. :O

It's amazing to see what great artwork people can pull off even with the limited 16 color EGA palette.

Looking fantastic! I have always loved the more natural outdoor locations explored in keen games and mods and this stuff really hits the spot! Really liking the creative sprite ideas, I always have a hard time coming up with unique and distinct looking creatures for mods but you've got it down pat Nisaba!

thanks for your kind words, guys.
helps a lot to boost my motivation. hope I find time and the right mood to continue the work on this mod... it's strange, the older you get the faster the days go by...

out of interest @K1n9_Duk3:
do you have the skill + interest to code the animation patterns for some of the creatures? (source-code mod!)

Interest? Sure! Skill? Only one way to find out.
