Knytt stories Round Robin
« on: June 08, 2010, 14:18:46 »
We've been talking about it for some time now, and now we start C)p

What this is:
A round robin is basically a story that is started by one person, and then sent to another person to add more to the story. Here we apply the same concept to a Knytt Stories level.

Rules:
  • We encourage you to use Smashy's tundra tileset
  • You must add a minimum of 2 screens. No maximum.
  • You can participate as many times as you want
  • You have 7 days to deliver your contribution, or else you will be skipped.
  • You have 3 days to let us know that you've got the level and are working on it, or else you will be skipped.
  • Each new contributer starts on monday, and hence it should be in by Sunday.
  • Custom gradients/objects/music/ambiance voluntary.


Participants:
1. Vegetal Gibber [done]
2. Bulbapuck [done]
3. Pick Yer Poison [done]
4. Headgrinder [done]
5. Razzorman [done]
6. Evil [done]
7. Firecat [done]
8. AClockworkLemon [done]
9. BioShock [done]
10. StraightFlame [done]
11. PeppyHare4000 [done]
12. Ultigonio [done]
13. Green.cookie [done]


Edit: 23 October:
We're working on finishing the level now. Writing the main plot and finishing the unfinished sections. This will be done in a similar fashion to what we've been doing now, but you can add yourself to this list even if you've contributed to the level in the past.

Current list
1. Headgrinder [done]
2. Firecat [done]
3. Sergiocornaga [done]
4. StraightFlame [done]
5. AClockworkLemon
6. Bulbapuck

8. Vinterrun

Smashy's tundra tileset has to be applied to every screen.

haha

Yeah, this rule is from the original thread.

I'm having second thoughts about it, should we remove the rule?

I think the tundra tileset should not be mandatory for every screen, but encouraged. Also, other tilesets should be allowed as long as they don't drastically change the proposed "snowy" theme for the level. Just my $0.02.
Some KS levels by me:

Okay, I've edited that rule.

I am however against using other existing tilesets. The reason being that I believe it could interfear with the mood of the level. If you want to use something from another tileset you can always make it yourself. Or ask someone else to make it.

Seeing that you will have the tileset(s) the people before you on the list have made, you will have quite a good assortment of tileset(s) anyway. I believe this rule will improove the level, if you disagree please let me know.

With all due respect and admiration for Mr. Bulbapuck, I'm afraid I have to knytt-pic the tileset rule. 

Making a new tileset can sometimes take weeks (it sure does me) unless it truly is just slapped together with no refinement.  My thought is that an unrefined tileset would contrast with the tundra tileset more than any existing tileset known (though I haven't seen it yet). 

If your worried we don't have the aesthetic sensibility to choose a tileset that will not contrast with the tundra tileset, why would we be able to make a new one that won't?  Furthermore, why not choose a hand full of existing tilesets you think will go with the tundra set and let us choose from those?  We should at least have some indoor tilesets, cave, or ice areas, right?  Maybe some metal bunker stuff?

Just saying, limiting to one tileset or else make your own seems a little stricter than necessary.

Oh, and I've just looked through my public tileset and searched the forum and I can't find the tundra tileset.  Anyone care to post it here?

And I guess I'll take slot #4.   8D

You have a good point, and I admit that I was wrong :). *removes rule*

It was just an idea I felt would give the level a boost. But it was probably mostly a hindrance for some and an inconvenience for others.

Thanks for joining in guys C)p Will edit this post later with the tileset.

Cool.  That is a pretty good tileset by the way.  And that makes me intrigued to see where we take this! 

So, basically, mine is due the 27th, right?  Just trying to plan ahead.  Life is busy and I want to make sure I can do this.

I'm glad to see this is going again. Are you posting the level as it progresses?

Anyway, after reading Headgrinder's thoughts I was wondering if I could make some tilesets to match Smashy's. Would that be acceptable?
