Re: How did you find Keen?

I was around 5 years old, when my older sister got some PC-DOS games on floppy discs from her friend next-door. Among the games were Disney's Aladdin, Lion King (both from 1994), Keen 4 and 5. I don't recall my sister being too excited about the games, but I was hooked. I played through both Keens, ...

I hope someone makes an actual Keen mod to this ;)

Also, I'd be interested to see VR support for this. For example Lucky's Tale was a lot of fun even though it's a platformer (and a 3D one).

Re: Need art help for big Keen easter egg/tribute

Hey guys :)

Wow, those are some great sprite art! I'm especially impressed with the Mimrock, and Berkeloid sure is a challenge to tackle.

Here's my attempt at Lick. Boy, this guy has a lot of frames to work with :stoned

Re: Need art help for big Keen easter egg/tribute

I'd still add some depth to your cap in the side frames, hard for me to think the cap can be aligned perfectly horizontally for sideview with no depth showing... Ah, yeah, I noticed that. The way I see it, the cap is tilted so that you'd be unable to see its underside from the sides. Though I agree...

Re: Need art help for big Keen easter egg/tribute

Welp, I started working on one of my favourite creatures - the Mad Mushroom! Not much done yet, but since I'll be out the weekend, I figured I'd show what I've got. What do you think about the lighting/shadowing? I changed the original sprites too to match Doom's general, top-down lighting style. *I...

Re: Need art help for big Keen easter egg/tribute

What size would the creatures' canvases have to be? Also, by 4-directional I assume it's front, back, left and right? Also x2, should they be limited to the 16 EGA colours (or any colours that come close enough that Doom's default palette has) or utilize all 256 colours of the palette? Sorry, I'm co...

Re: OFF TOPIC THREAD: Where derailing the thread is impossible!

That reminds me, is it wrong I've always pronounced the "id" in "id software" as "aye-dee", as in "I-D"? I know the official pronunciation and etymology, but my mind is already hardwired to accept only one kind of "id" :dopekeen

Re: OFF TOPIC THREAD: Where derailing the thread is impossible!

Doesn't even have to be damaged, I recall at least one crab species declawing themselves in order to fool predators with the detatched, twitching limb. The crabs are able to regenerate those limbs after molting several times. It has been suggested that crabs that perform autotomy (self-declawing) ma...
