Forums vs. Discord

Since the Internet got popular, forums were like the main medium for online communities. In recent years, however, forums became less popular in favor of other things like social media and Discord. Discord in particular is so popular that it seems nearly every Internet community has a Discord server...

Re: KeenWiki: Are graphics-only mods valid?

Wow, it's been almost a month since you posted! What's going on here? Have people been overlooking this topic, or are they just not interested? In case it's the former, I'll ping those that have posted in this topic at least twice: Also, I agree that abandoned mods should be included, at least if it...

What books have you been reading?

Do you read any books? What books have you been reading lately? I know a lot people here like to play games (including our favorite commander! :)) and watch movies, but I'm sure there's some Keen fans that like to take their eyes off of the screen and read a good book. Lately, I've been reading Fran...

I wish there was a hand-drawn animated Keen film, with Tom Hall involved.

Re: Link-Keen - Netkeen for the Nintendo Gameboy Advance

I tried this out a while ago in Visual Boy Advance (GBA emulator -- I have a DS, but not those flash cart things), single player only. From what I saw, it's very cool! I imagine NetKeen would be pretty fun to play on the GBA! The graphics look pretty nice, especially in the picture Multimania posted...

Re: MILDLY NEAT -- For all your random Keenery needs!

Ah, so that's what Keen 9 was really going to be called! :crazy But really, this is a cool discovery! Now I don't have to use the Arial font when I make Vorticons-style title screens! (I think that's what I used when I did the ROM trilogy title screens.) That program looks very neat; I might have to...

Re: Keen 5 secret level

This is turning out to be a good topic! It's fun reading about how people find the secret levels! :) I think the only secret level I found myself was Keen 1's. I remember going down into the one pit in Red Maze City, finding and then taking the teleporter, and then got really excited when I saw wher...

Re: Foray in the Forest (development thread)

Wow, you had a dream about this mod/game!? That's very cool! What you said sounds like a direction The Universe Is Toast could've possibly taken. And yeah, that mushroom is gorgeous! :love

Re: Classic Arcade Games

I recommended giving Yars' Revenge a shot! It's really fun and challenging (especially if you play game #6), and it's often considered one of the best games on the Atari 2600. Another arcade-like Atari 2600 game that I've been having fun playing is Fantastic Voyage. For an adaptation of a 1960s movi...

Re: Keen Awards 2021: Winners

A bit late here, but I'd like to say: Congratulations to all of the winners! 2021 had a lot of cool Keen stuff, and I hope this year will have just as much, if not even more! :) It's so nice to see Ceilick win his first Keen Award after all these years! And those trophies, oh those trophies, those a...

Re: Foray in the Forest (development thread)

Holy Garg! Those mushrooms are so gorgeous! :love :love :love They really give me a nice Keen 59 vibe! Also, that jungle door in the last page looks really cool! I hope you were able to get that one working properly!

Re: PlayStation 2 Games?

There's a neat site called DKOldies, which is full of retro games, including PS2 games. We've ordered several cool games and stuff from them, and they came in excellent condition! (I had to clean the SM64 cartridge a few times, but after that, it works perfectly!) The prices are pretty decent and th...

Re: A tech tip for Keen Day 2022

Wow, DOS is capable of Wi-Fi!? :O That's incredible! Now we can play NetKeen with people around the world while using authentic hardware! I'd love to see a picture! All I really want from life is just once more to browse Keen, Star Wars and Pokemon websites using Netscape Navigator. Would this inter...

Re: Does Galaxy's story work better played 6/4/5

Hm, I never thought of the possibility of episodes 4/5 and 6 being separate parallel stories. Nor did I think of this theory, speaking of which is pretty neat. You got quite an imagination, monochameleon. I do find it a bit odd that 6 is -- in some ways -- more incomplete compared to 4/5 (i.e more b...

Re: Your Own Keen Music!

Hey, that's a neat idea! Now that I think of it, those two songs sound pretty close! The mashup sounds nice and I like the baby Keen sprite!
