About This File

Features

  • Wignatz the mouse, a sneaky new character drawn from the classic Krazy Kat comic strip who specializes in deception and hit-and-run
  • A custom crafting menu with weapons, wearables, structures, and items for subterfuge
  • Loathsome new creatures
  • Events that only happen in certain seasons, lunar phases, weather or time of day
  • A “very special” crockpot recipe
  • The ability to befriend splumonkeys, who share Wignatz’ zest for throwing stuff at people they don’t like

Wignatz is modeled after the Ignatz character from George Herriman’s strange, lyrical comic strip Krazy Kat. Puny and weak in combat, Wignatz must hurl his deadly brick from a safe distance and use his speed to dodge blows. He can craft devious items to distract, confuse, and hide from adversaries.

Drawing inspiration from Krazy Kat, Wignatz is themed around the desert and the American Southwest. If he makes his home near a desert, Wignatz is rewarded by easy access to the ingredients he needs for his unique recipes, and new creatures and encounters. Events that only happen under special time and weather conditions reward him for venturing from the safety of his campfire.

Hints

No spoilers, just a few tidbits to point you in the right direction and tempt your curiosity:

  • A fetish will show you the way to go.
  • Wignatz has just one new crockpot recipe (hint: he’s a mouse, and the key ingredient is milk), but it’s very unusual. The results depend not only on the ingredients, but timing. And sometimes they’re valuable for other things besides eating.
  • Pay attention to ambient sounds. If you hear something unfamiliar, it’s usually a sign that there’s something special going on.
  • When you encounter something unfamiliar, examine it. Sometimes you’ll receive a clue.
  • Play with items. See what happens when you use, drop, or ignite them, let perishables spoil, etc.

Credits and acknowledgements

I borrowed code from “auto catch” by seronis for Wignatz’s brick. Images for Wignatz and some items were adapted from old Krazy Kat strips (strips before 1923 are in the public domain). Audio samples were taken mostly from FreeSound.org and used under various versions of the Creative Commons License, or by permission of the author. Particulars are in credits.txt.

I may have to read some of these comic strips. I'll download the Mod and try to give you decent feedback ASAP! :) It certainly sounds like a good one though.
