Skate the Squirrel

Post by Nisaba » Thu Aug 11, 2016 10:31

Once, long ago there was a game consisting of naught but one level. Then it was given a squirrel and made complete. Do not ask why, this is just a thing that happened.

Something an associate knocked together to test a squirrel character called 'Skate'. Apparently something bigger is in the pipeline. The game, such as it is, can be downloaded here: but requires DosBox to run.
where?

I know of only one squirrel, which appears at the last second of this video:

But we're really talking about this video:

Oh Skate Nutkin. Who knew it would be the most sought after game of the year?

Oh, link didn't save or something. It's here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3940020/A_SKATE.zip

A few older Keeners will recognize the mod involved, patched to be a complete, though exceedingly short and pointless, game. It was test of a few patches.

LL is having me work with her on a far bigger Keen 4 project with some guy. Its resulted in some... interesting patches and conversations. But my time is so limited, it moves at a snail's pace.

Woah Levellord is modding... I didn't know that! And that's a great little squirrel sprite... so was it Levellass that made the squirrel? A bizarre modification I daresay.

I love the squirrel. So Levellord is back in the game... well, why doesn't she come back over here and inject some words of wisdom once in a while?
I flermmed the plootash just like you asked.

Was the squirrel made by Scarlet? I seem to remember him drawing it for a project called Becky Blaze: A Run Through the Forest. Not sure if he drew it from scratch though. I could be completely wrong.

I haven't the faintest idea. The mod itself is just a quick patch job basically, and there's a sequel now, based on one of Herry Jerry's projects: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3940020/SKATE2.zip

It was done in a few hours, mostly just to see if she could. The actual, serious project is Keen 4 based, but I warn you, if you have a beta or unfinished mod, protect it now or who knows what will happen to it.
