How did I think of using keratin as a name? Uh... I have no idea. It doesn't have anything to do with the story. No, wait, it does. Keratin is weak in its individual fibres, but clusters together to form strong, tough strands. That's... uh... symbolic. Yeah. Totally.

Keep up the awesome work, good luck!
Thanks. I appreciate the support. I'm ridiculously busy at the moment, but I'm trying to get back to Keratin as quickly as possible.

Epicness is a corollary of biscuits. There will be biscuits in this game. Ergo: this game will be epic.

Wait. My logic's a little off there, I think. Whatever; thanks for your support, anyway.

I'm trying not to remove too much insanity, but a slight loss is inevitable, because of all the planning that has to go into creating such a complicated story. Still, I'll do my best.

Wow. You certainly sound excited. I'm glad to hear it.

When I saw this I thought two things:
1. This is the guy who made Snakewood. Ergo, this will be amazingly insane amazing
2. How's he gonna live up the Snakewood?
For my sake, make this Killer Zen mode, and make it crazy.

The Meat Men can't be joined, I'm afraid, but you can certainly help them; they offer a range of subquests throughout the game.

If by Killer Zen mode you mean Spearow Hate You mode, then it is fairly crazy. It makes things harder, adds a whole lot of subquests that do bad things to you, and essentially puts in another story ending.

Some fakemon are from Snakewood, some are completely new. Some are also from my mini-hack, Pokémon Cangrejo - notably the Pokémon Professor Ork gives to you, if you choose to join him (it's a Glistenon). Hombone makes a return, only subtly different, as do Kenchira and Kenchukuo, though they're even rarer than before; there are a few others, but most of the fakemon here are new, like Linzay and Vyral. And many more besides.

The Deadly Seven may have a cameo, but the role of recurring insane people will instead be fulfilled by the Fabulous Snowmen, who are neither fabulous nor snowmen. I think.

Hombone Hombone Hombone Hombone Homboooone!

There are some Hombone in this game, but they don't evolve as you might expect; I've included Hombone in every hack I've ever made, and they acquire new evolutions and new ways to evolve every time. This is no exception; if I've planned this right, there are about ten different final evolutions for Hombone.

There are only a very few reused ones. 95% of the fakemon are completely new, although a lot of the Pokémon aren't fake. However, several old Pokémon have been adjusted slightly, to fit the new type system and so forth.

I wouldn't give Snakewood a shot until I get the fixed version up - hopefully that'll be by next weekend.

Or a very close 2nd. Just depends on what other hacks show up this year.
You think so? I'm touched. Thanks so much!

It seems I have a lot to live up to. Better get to work...
