This is how I imagined Keen 6 back in 1995 or 1996. This was drawn entirely without looking at how Keen 6 is looking:

Also, Keen 4 map, which looks pretty accurate I think:

And I have foreseen Keen's future, obviously:

And one unfinished Keen 6 level:

I'm pretty much keen brainwahsed :(

That's not bad, the level especially looks great. I remember imagining a keen games years and years ago, but it was kinda like GBC in that it was exploring a collection of worlds rather than just one.

Hand-drawn styled levels in a mod? Like the famous Bubbatom one from the contest 5 years ago?

Nuts!
seriously, add a couple of nuts, hide some seeds, and don't forget about conifer cones, plus some fruits and fungi. and nuts! put nuts all over the place. hazelnuts, chestnuts, acorns, almonds, pecans, pistachios, walnuts, mongongos, macadamias, cashews... I'm getting nuts.

Wow, that turned out nice Levellass! @Roobar, are those balloons in the top left corner?

High noon's no good for me, what about low noon? I'll just need you sometime in the next month to look a project over for weird 'not on my computer' crashes and major thematic issues. (Like 'Why does all the music sound like a cat being strangled?')

vandalizing my computer... why not?! I got several testing environments (good old hardware, I can't let you go...) just choose one and we'll see if it can handle the $7FFB bytes. if we are lucky everything purrs like a kitten. sounds like a plan, doesn't it?!

It's not the level size I'm worried about, I do a few things with hardware detection and I'm not sure actual non-dosbox systems will be able to run the game right as a result. I'm having some hints for example that even some dosbox setups may default to PC sounds.

I'm delighted to test what ever you want me 2. but when it comes to a variety of hardware tests I assume Commander Spleen & keenmaster486 are a way better address. just check this thread over here real quick: https://pckf.rigeltechnical.com/viewtop ... f=6&t=4044

I'm ready when ever you are...

I don't know if you remember this, but this is the multipass keycard from Keen 1 I made a couple of years ago. Here you go:

Yeah, piece of cake!
