It's the sequel to Tomatoes! This time, exclusively for KS+.

I started working on this about 3-4 months ago, but it wasn't until last week that I finally started building the actual level. I've decided to start a preview thread in order to (hopefully) give myself a reason to commit to this project and actually finish it.

Just like Tomatoes, this will be mostly a playground-type level with a focus on free exploration and humor. However, it will be somewhat larger (probably about 80 screens, although I may even make it Medium sized, which is pretty rare for me) and include more interactive elements. It's not intended to be an epic/memorable adventure by any means, but hopefully it'll make for a rather amusing time waster :P

Main features:

  • More lemons than you can possibly handle. Salt and tequila not included.
  • A fair amount of custom material (especially graphics).
  • Both layer 3 AND layer 2/1/0 tiles! Also, objects and gradients!
  • A few different areas to explore and unlock by collecting powers and other items. No golden creatures, though. It'd be a nightmare to spot them among all that yellow.
  • Interact with the inhabitants of Lemonia to unlock hidden quests and learn more about them than you actually want.
  • A lot of non-sequiturs and generally stupid, cringeworthy dialogue.
  • A .knytt.bin file that somehow magically expands into several other files. I kid you not.
  • A chance (*) to win fabulous real prizes just by installing and playing the level!

* Up to 0%

A couple early screenshots:





I intend to finish and release this level sometime around the end of August, if everything goes smoothly.

Also, the infamous bag of potato chips may or may not make a comeback. I haven't decided yet :P

Looking forward to playing this once it's released. You know what they say, when life gives you lemons... make a Knytt Stories level out of it.

...which is pretty much the case here. I drew the lemon tileset in a whim a few months ago, with nothing particular in mind. I was just going to release it on my "custom content" thread, but then I changed my mind at the last minute and decided to build a level around it (the tileset will still be released with the "KS Use/Edit OK" license once the level is completed, though). Also, I've been eating quite a lot of lemon popsicles since summer started, which may or may have not contributed to my inspiration 8)

The idea behind this was to start a somewhat simple project so I could relax a bit making stuff without having to think too much, although I'm making a fair amount of custom stuff for it, including: new water animations, new creatures and a couple of tilesets (besides the one shown in the screenshots). Hope you like the end result!

Current screen count: 72. It will likely end up a Medium sized level after all.

If you always wanted to be surrounded by huge pools of lemon juice and lemon waterfalls: 1) Now you can!... and 2) you're a weirdo.

I've been working almost exclusively on The Dithered Temple for the past days, but I managed to make some progress on the COs:



Also, here's a sneak preview of a new area, featuring the "lemony edition" of an old tileset:
