Cool beans then Nisaba, wonderful job with Council! What about Treasure Eater? We have it with 8 rotations frames, but I think it is better to stitch with just 5, so here you go:

I just want to say how impressed I am with the screenshots of this project. The classic Keen sprites and tiles fit surprisingly well into a 3d space, and it really makes me want to explore these locations. I normally don't do so well with old-school first person shooters, since the movement and quick camera movements tend to make me a little motion sick. But, I'm still interested in checking this out when it's finished.

People here have been doing a lot of impressive sprite work to create new directions for Keen 4 creatures. Coincidentally, some of these frames could be very useful for Voyage to Veota, given the gameplay style and perspective I'll be using for the game. Would anyone mind if I end up using some of these sprites in the future?

Okay Nisaba, not a problem also there aren't many frames left btw thanks to you! :)
I thought Arachnut may surely benefit of some rotations as well, is it good for you?

You wonder how Arachnut looks Nisaba? Well people, have a glimpse of how the Keen easteregg looks instead! Will add some brightmaps to Arachnut to make it stand visually in dark places, but damn frames looks perfect!
