So far only the terrain bugs me, especially the background in the levels looks very sharp (or should I say "pixely", if you know what I mean) compared to TKOK or any previous CK game. I don't know if you've changed the tiles since the demo video, but that's just my opinion.

Right now the terrain is as it is in the video. If anyone has texture suggestions, throw them at me, but my thoughts are: I don't want a solid yellow and I think the random texturing gives it a more barrain, distant look. Like I said though, I'm open to considering suggestions.

Really looking forward to this one :)
The world of Commander Keen mods just opened up before my eyes a couple of days ago, and I must say that your previous mod was very well done.

When can we get hold of this one?

As Ceilick says, it's now on beta testing phase.

And man, I'm one of the few lucky testers! ;) And the game is huge so far! I've played it all day and I'm probably half of the game. I'm playing without cheats and I have a LOT of things to say to Ceilick. Will comment later as testing continues.

It's HOT! :) lol

Just got through Mink's first take on the mod, waiting for the other three beta testers. So far: good lord, I made a lot of mistakes. I'll probably be going through a second round of testing with the amount i had to fix.

Kinget: the mod is about to be released and you still want screenshots? Sorry, dude, too busy getting this thing done :)

It wasn't that many mistakes. Most of them were just simple tiling errors.

Right right, lot of mistakes, but easy to fix is what i meant. Still, i'd like to get everything right, so their will be a second round of betaing in case I missed anything.

Deltamatic: If anything it will be released sooner thanks to Mink's and I'm sure the rest of the beta testers respones. Before the month ends, Keen will be Dead in the Desert :mortlol ...or, you know, somehow escape :)
