Skater Squirrel, more properly Skater Squirrel's Cherry Cake Caper is a heavily patched Keen 4 mod released by Levellass. It stars a certain squirrel who has appeared in a few other trivial projects, with modified physics and Skater's starting position changing depending on the difficultly.
This mini-mod of a handful of levels was made both as a small prize for the InsaLevs II competition and is a demo based on the core of a yet unreleased larger, complete mod.
Skater D. (for 'Danger') Squirrel is the only surviving pup of Scatter and Skitter Squirrel, typical red squirrels living in typical holes in typical trees in typical forests in the very atypical US of A, greatest country in the world. (According to the squirrels that live there.) A somewhat weird fellow he spends his summers in Ohio and his winters in the frozen wastes of the arctic.
Due to these trips (And Russian Tinder) he found himself romantically involved with a wolf called Deathbringer (Or White' to her friends.) Their relationship was rocky but Skater was always too skinny to eat and was always willing to lead innocent creatures to her lair.
However one fine spring day it dawns on the buck that is will soon be the 1-year anniversary of their relationship. It would be wise to do something special, both out of love and to avoid being consumed.
As such he resolves to bake her a cake. Cakes are nice. Everyone loves cake.
Four hours and one multi-state forest fire later Skater had to admit to one stark fact: He could not cook. He would have to look elsewhere for a cake (and to avoid the wrath of Smokey the Bear.)
In fact, while enjoying a Foray in the Forest the squirrel happens upon a human bearing one of the famous Cakes of Roib; confectioneries of legend from the bountiful planet of Roib, whose beauty will never see ruin.
