Then you're not gonna like mine for sure :). It's bigger and harder than my Keen 1 competition level. Though, given the difficulty of the previous competition levels, I'm pretty sure mine will not be considered hard compared to the others...

It occurs to me that perhaps the actual time limit isn't what gets levels completed, but the deadline. If there's a Keen 3 version it should be given a one week timeframe with panicked extensions every week after for a month.

We are now up to 8 levels! Quillax, Roobar, Rush and Nisaba, levels have been received. It's already the 20th here, but I'm willing to be lax if there's any more levels incoming, the entries so far have been awesome. (Also who judges the winner?)

let's do a pol this time around!
three should be the number of options each user may select when voting.

in the meantime: is there already a fresh title-screen / menu-screen in the making?!
you might recall the screen someone contributed last time. (click me)

Nine levels now that we have Troublesomekeen's entry. I'm holding off, waiting for Spleen, he usually does interesting stuff. Anyone else in the wings or do we have everyone?

Also Nisaba your level seems to have two Keens in it? one right by the exit and one in the upper right. Or is my level editor reading it wrong? When I start the game I appear in the upper right.

I had not considered that. I made a map that obeys the rules and I could adjust level 90 but a new title screen?

oh no. how is this even possible? please check your pm's. I've quickly updated the level and erased the Mortimer sprite. plus I added some deadly tiles, but that's a different story...

about the title screen: I could take care of it. but first I have to play some levels before I can come up with something matching.

Not to sound annoying or anything similar, but that's what I tried to suggest after the first contest. (Although it's entirely possible I explained it in a way that nobody could understand. I do that sometimes. :dopekeen)

Anyways, excited for release!

@shikadi: It was also everyone else's fault. :p People took their time with their levels and I wanted to collect as many as possible.

Can't wait to see these levels...

By the way, if/when we're doing Keen 3, I'm suggesting the obvious: danger tile + ankh. That's something I really want to see utilized.
