You've just come back home, but have forgotten your front door key. You can hear sounds coming from inside - somebody or something unexpected is in your house. What can you see through the keyhole?

For this week's challenge, both the preview file and the detail file are part of your submission. For the preview file, you will be using the keyhole template. Think carefully about what happens outside of the keyhole in the full piece! What you see through the keyhole should be the same scene as the main file (could even be a crop), but should not fully reveal what really is going on.

Restriction: You must use the keyhole template for your preview file, and your full piece (no template, normal square canvas) will be the detail file. Both use the PICO-8 palette.

The detail file will be a 100x100 square.

Canvas size: 100x100 (for detail image)
Colours: 16, PICO-8 palette
Transparency: Only for the preview, around the keyhole template.
Animation: Optional.

The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.
