Re: 30 Years of Keen Dreams

Well, I must admit that I personally never finished Keen Dreams regularly (without cheats). During my childhood, when I played Keen games the most, the game was just too hard to me - especially more limited movement (no pogo stick) and not-permanently-killable monsters and a weapon that was harder t...

Re: Keen 4 Most Favorite Level?

Note that I also created a remake of this level for Vinyl Goddess from Mars with a level editor I created for this game . I haven't released it yet due to losing inspiration during creation of my VGFM level pack, but I might at least release it separately for those who are interested. I don't know ...

Vinyl Goddess from Mars custom level pack (with a remake of Commander Keen 4 level)

Hello, I'm releasing my level pack for a bit forgotten, but pretty colourful and dynamic platforming game from 1995, Vinyl Goddess from Mars. It has been more than 5 years since I created and released a level editor for this game and released my first level pack which had just two levels. Today I'm ...

Re: Keen 4 Most Favorite Level?

Well, for me, I would definitely put Cave of the Descendents on the list. I really liked the level for its mysteriousness and feeling of isolation (a deep and dark cave) and lot of secrets and dead ends. Finding all the secret areas was lot of fun for me as a kid, I believed there were still more. E...

Re: My keen childhood "trauma"

Much more than dying with the standard animation, I was really scared from being eaten by a Dopefish. It felt very uncomfortable.

Re: The Armageddon App

You are going to be very close to the perfect score, you might even get it. Definitly should be enough to trigger the extended ending. Oh, unfortunately nope, I did not reach the perfect score. During my second run I got 1654200 points (for the first run it was 1196100). I was feeling pretty confid...

Re: The Armageddon App

Just some experience I'd like to share. The monster that absolutely most often causes death to me is Robopest. It's flying in so unpredictable pattern it's hard to shoot, but very easy to touch! Except monsters, the most common way I die is by a hazard or falling off the level. Now only 2 last level...

Re: The Armageddon App

I played through The Armageddon App and must say, it was one of the best mods I have played! It's definitely 5 stars of 5 for me, the only other 5* mod being Atroxian Realm. I liked basically everything - the overall idea and theme, level design, easter eggs, secrets, music etc. I especially liked h...

Re: Mods runnable in shareware versions?

For Vinyl Godess from Mars, I made a mod: http://www.shikadi.net/moddingwiki/Vinyl_Goddess_From_Mars/Mods that is runnable with both shareware and full version of game. I noticed that some of the websites where I can download this game or play it in a web brorser, are even providing full version of ...

Re: Your Own Keen Music!

However, if the sequel happens, it'll be something completely different in the Unity engine, not a source code mod. I was hoping it would be a source code mod (even more advanced) similar to AR, and it would be played through Dosbox like any classic Commander Keen game. But that's rather off-topic ...

Re: Your Own Keen Music!

This is really cool! It's a treat to hear new, improved renditions of these themes. I've added this video to the AR soundtrack playlist. Thank you! I hoped you will get pleased. Some of the tracks work better than others, for sure. It seems that switching formats sometimes causes certain instrument...

Re: Your Own Keen Music!

I don't think it's worth spending too much time on this unless you want to. If it's easy enough to record all of them, then why not, but otherwise I think it'd be great to hear just the best ones. This is really just for fun. I don't plan on making any attempts to overhaul the actual in-game tracks...

Re: Your Own Keen Music!

If you do have/make other AR remixes in this style, I'd love to hear them. I could indeed do that, however, be aware, that some of the tracks unfortunately sound worse than the originals, which was the main reason I did not do that. That is mostly caused by different way how IMF utilizes the voices...

Re: Your Own Keen Music!

While we're already on Atroxian Realm note, I'd like to post my rendition of "Great Ziggurat" music I made some time ago. Most of instruments are improved, and this is how I imagine the music should originally have sounded like: https://soundcloud.com/hisymak/atroxian-realm-great-ziggurat ...
