Make Something Keen challenges

Post by Roobar » Sat May 27, 2017 9:31

Create Something Keen challenges

In these challenges you need to draw/photoshop/paint etc. something related to the keeniverse. You can use existing resources or make your own. You can choose to participate in one, two or all of the categories. You can participate with more than one entry per category too.

OK, here are the first 3 challenges.

1. You have The Foot. Finish the rest.

Image

2. Fidget spinner (yeah). Make some use of it like if it would be in an actual Keen game or mod. Or/and explain how you envision using it in a keen environment.

(image for illustrative purpose)

3. Payback time: make a stunned or destroyed Robored.

Image

This round ends on 18.06.2017. Post your entries on that date.

WOW! Astonishing interest and the competition is fierce! And here are my entries (these took me less than 3 hours to make):

1. What's the rest of the Foot? The whole thing is a giant foot fidget spinner of course!

2. My fidget spinner entry is an actual fidget spinner shot:

I also want to iterate that I can't imagine a better stunned Robo Red. Brilliant work!

Oman, that's a fun sprite. I want to see that in a mod someday if someone ever makes a way to destroy Robo Reds. Kind of wish I could put that in my Keen 5 mod, oh well. :dopekeen

EDIT: Wait, no, I've got it.

Haha neat ideas. The fidget spinner would require a touch screen interface for the keen wrist though. And the John Romero - I never thought of that. :eek

Yes! Do that! Here's an idea: Maybe you can make a level, where you need to destroy RoboRed with Image, who would then give you Image

OK and the winner is: Plasma Captain

The next round will have only one task.

1. Make something Lemm... Yorplings!

Image Image

Image

Image

Your task, if you're willing to accept it, is to visualize how a Lemmings mod would look like into Commander Keen using Yorps. For example, that would be either:
1. A scene with Yorps in a Commander Keen environment (Keen 1-6 or a mod). Yorps would move and act as typical Lemmings;
2. A title screen;
3. A logo;
4. Imagine game interface with Yorps and Keen in mind;
5. Animations (or frames) of Yorps doing Lemmings actions (like digging, exploding etc.).

Image

It also may not be a mod, but vice-versa: Lemmings environment with Yorps in it. Or stand-alone game using a mouse.

Round ends on 16.07.2017. This time you can post your creations here as you make them, or wait for 16.07.2017 to come.

Yeah, that's some good work there. :) Especially like the road blocking one.
