Keen 10: Mirror Menace

Post by szemi » Thu Oct 04, 2012 19:10

Yes, title says it all! :D I'm hardly working on Commander Keen 10, which takes place in the parallel universe on planet Kryptos.

Now about the progress:

Levels: 10%
Enemies: 7 left, the others are done + patched
Platforms: currently 2-3 are done
Various texts: 90%
Point items: 100%
Story: 100%
Scrolling story: 100%
Worldmap tiles: 50%
Music: 0%

Of course secret levels will be in the game as well. I'm planning 2 secret levels. All I need is musics and new sounds for the game.
Since I'm done with 1 level, I'm about to upload a demo video.

About Kryptos:

It's a is half glassy, half swampy, half fiery, and half snowy.

And not at least the most important thing is this for the Keen community!

Make it look more like a swamp. Something like this:

or like this, although it looks more like walking in a river though.

I keep the update.

Levels:

Right now 6 levels are 100% done and tested, which means 5 swamp levels(including the BWB megarocket level) + 1 space level. Currently I'm going to focus on the space levels.
Moreover I'm planning 2 secret levels, where in one of them Keen can float, the other one will be a special. ;)


Musics:

Currently I have 2 new musics, but I'm waiting for new sounds as well.


Enemies:

Well, all of them are done and patched, except one.


Platform designs:

Currently 3 is done of the 4.


PS: I'm gonna release a demo video again and a poster.

Those look beautiful, wiivn. Did you just edit that manually yourself, or are those tiles from somewhere else?
Member since at least 1998 with... ah... some long absences. I was even a moderator at one point. I'll probably keep coming back here and there as long as this place still exists.

Originally I made the tiles and wiivn fixed them since those weren't too good. Just look at the titlescreen and the other 2 pics in my first post.

Snortimer It was roughly an hour of drawing and experimenting over his screenshot. It was unacceptable (for me) how "the swamp" was looking, so I tried to make it better, threw ideas etc.. It would look better, if I had put a few more hours into it, but after all, it's his project.

Another update:



With Levellass's special patch I'll be able to put an extra enemy in the game.
Moreover I'm working on the next space/glass level, After the space levels I'm gonna contrentrate on the fire levels, then the snowy levels. I also have to do a special platform style for the last level, which I already know how will look like. I'm still thinking of the ending, because that'll be the last thing.
