Yeah, both are nice.  Mushroom caps are just too plastic colored again.  :oops:  I would at least add a dash of white to the tip, and a dash of contrasting color to the shadow (add orange into the blue shadow, and red into the green shadow).  Otherwise, I like what your doing.  Very ambitions size!

Thanks for the advice, guys. I already did have plans to tweak the mushroom tileset. It was one of the first ones I did and now that I have some more experience and a better idea of what I'm doing, I can definitely improve it, especially with your suggestions. :)

Sorry for another double post but it's update time!

First off, here's the reworked mushroom tileset.

Spoiler: (click to show/hide)

Not sure if I'm happy with it yet so it may be changing some more. Otherwise, we're up to 15 tilesets but, like I said before, I wouldn't call them all complete yet. Still lots of work for several of them but it's a start! Haven't made too many more screens because I've been focusing on tilesets and things so the screen count is about the same. Also, some exciting news, Fubaka is going to be making a few custom tilesets for the level as well! 8)

And some major news! I've made some important design decisions. I'm going a different route with this level now. I've decided to not include most of the challenges I had in mind. This level will now definitely be focused on exploration (which will open the story up as you go). There will still be enemies and some challenges so it doesn't fall into the "Environmental" category but there shouldn't be much beyond the skill of the "average" KS player. I'll post some new screenshots in the next update.

I like that the small blue capped mushrooms have grey stalks.  The big ones might look good that way too.  Looking very good btw.

Wow I'm glad to see people are liking this and looking forward to it! I'll do my best to get this finished as soon as possible, though I suspect it will still be a few months.

I like that the small blue capped mushrooms have grey stalks.  The big ones might look good that way too.  Looking very good btw.

As a matter of fact, that was my original intent. However, the layout of the tileset prevented this so I just used the same colour for both. When I edited and improved the tileset I also re-arranged it so now there's room! So yes, the blue cap mushrooms will grey stems. I'll update the screenshot later. :)

The vines that go over Juni in the second screen are a nice touch. I think in the third one the background blends in too much with the foreground, though. Maybe lower the contrast on the background tiles?

Due to some circumstances this project is on hiatus. I hope to return to it soon.

That is always sad, but always understandable.  Hope you get back on it soon.

Long time no see! C) Consider this still on semi-haitus. However, I have added about a dozen new screens and done some more tileset work.

Considering how neat it seems this is going to be, and how I've been itching to do a playthrough of some Knytt Stories levels, I'd say there's a pretty good chance I'll be enjoying this and speaking over it when it's finally done!
