With GZDoom and good people at hand, anything is possible :)

Regarding the 100 drops: In this case it‘s your hitpoints, we changed that dynamic a bit.

Wow... How's that even possible with the doom engine? Since this has become like a really big thing on it's own, I think this needs to become its own thing instead of being an easter egg.
Yes, please, please! I would LOVE to see this as a standalone game!
I flermmed the plootash just like you asked.

Glad that you like it :) The Arachnut west sprites are brilliant man, this is utterly perfect and could come directly from id software.

Today I finished the main portion of the 3rd Keen map (the screenshots you saw from the Pyramid). As of now, we only need the remaining sprites to prepare the code and finish the maps - so it's up to you now mostly :) No need to feel stressed! We still have a lot of work to do and continue with the main game but it's good to see this special gem almost finished with your help!

Well, chances are not that bad now that we have almost all the assets and code done. Let's see how these 3 secret levels are received by the community :)

I think for standalone game we need to go 8-directional.
Big eork, I know, but as community art effort...

I don't think there is a hierarchy, as levels are already finished. So every sprite is missing at the same priority.
From testing the levels - I could notice at least the Berkeloid missing quite some frames.

Definitely make up a fake hierarchy according to your personal favorites and most visually appealing.
Super cool project!

Guys, if this gets funded, it might help you fill the missing gaps. You'll need to add the 4 main directions and the software would fill the rest 4 or more diagonal directions. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/53 ... -alchemist
