I'm sure most of you are Chip's Challenge fans, and word got out that I'm Chuck Sommerville's son. Anyway, I have a gift for you but it's only almost complete. I've scripted the DROD equivilents of the ant and the centipede, (or the bug and the paramecium). I just don't have the artistic skill to create custom sprites for them, so they'll be represented by a Mud Coordinator and a Tar technician (respectively).

So if someone wants to provide a tileset for them, that would be nice.

These seem really cool! They worked fine, except for one instance where the upper right monster walks in a strange pattern. It seemed a bit weird so I made a demo. Is that intended? If yes then that could make some really hard puzzles.

That's a consequence of the fact that the first thing they check for is a diagonal movement behind them, or orthogonal if they're already facing diagonally.

Turns out they also don't respond well to room edges, but I'm willing to call them both a feature.
