Re: Return to the Shadowlands

I'm especially excited [...] to work with Keen 6 in general, since Aliens Ate my Babysitter has some of the most interesting alien environments, creatures, and graphics but has never had a game that really makes them shine (it also has the most hellish tileset organization of any Keen galaxy game, ...

Re: The Alphamatic (Version 2 + Marooned Over Mars Expansion)

Dang Gridlock getting some real clout out there. :eek I don't know much about that game, but from what I hear it's a pretty big deal in some circles. Congratulations! (That isn't related to Serenity Forge, is it?) I don't know that there's much you would need to censor in Atroxian Realm outside of t...

Re: KeenWiki on a new server

What is going on with KeenWiki right now? It looks like the last day or two a bunch of spambots joined (which I haven't seen happen on KeenWiki before). They're all called "Anonymous" now, but yesterday when I looked there were several accounts with names that sounded like human first and ...

Re: Return to the Shadowlands

This sounds exciting! New content from the one and only Ceilick! So much for "Sign of the Vool" being your last Keen project, eh?

Hopefully I'll have a chance to play this in sometime less than several months. :dopekeen

Re: Commander Keen: Sunset (K1 mod with new game mechanics)

Okay! So after finally having played the full release for myself last month, I'm finally getting around to responding to some of the replies on here. In hindsight maybe it wasn't entirely necessary to wait 'til after I played it for some of these, but whatareyagonnado. ------------------------------...

Re: The Alphamatic (Version 2 + Marooned Over Mars Expansion)

That's such a heartwarming story. I can say for myself that Commander Keen and the mods and the community have helped me through various rough patches -- AR included. :) Speaking of kids playing mods, every so often I think KeenWiki should have a content rating system of some kind. Some of those mod...

Re: Goodbye Galaxy Report Card

I love this kind of behind-the-scenes documentation. I don't recall seeing this particular letter before, so thanks for sharing your findings! Funny that this whole thing started as a "lark." I guess the best works are the ones you have fun making. I've heard this before, and it rings true...

Re: keen 6 and keen dreams

*lurks in* *posts link* *lurks out* Heh, well. As you can see, some of us have no problem at all with using pirated copies. I don't think I've ever seen any obsession over only using legal copies of Keen 6. In fact the general sentiment I've seen is that it's so ambiguous what the law is in that pa...

Re: Keen Fanart Archive

Fair enough, if that's what your priorities are. For me I think that would take so much extra effort that I'm not sure I'd be able to stick with the project. But you do seem to be pretty good with finding and reaching out to people, and I guess you have a lot of experience and overlap with that anyw...

The image(s) in my post? They both show up just fine for me. Weird. Guess I'll have to keep HTTPS in mind when linking images.

Re: Commander Cool in "Where's My Bears?" (FULL RELEASE)

first :p Review time! I did help write the story, and contributed a few small graphics here and there, so I can't comment on that. But as for the rest of it.... - - - - This is a nice levelpack, half-mod, whatever you want to call it. It's surprisingly polished, maybe more than you might expect from...

Re: Neutrino Burst Injector

For a while my preferred way to play Keen was to try to get as far as I could in Hard mode without saving at all. Keen 5 was one of my favorites for that. I didn't always get as far as this level (trying to go in "level order"), but when I did, it ended my game just about every time. The S...

Re: The "I'm looking for a classic game" Thread

This is a great thread! The other similar one too. Found out the name of SkiFree from that other thread after trying to remember it for a few years. Might as well drop my own search in here too.

Re: Keen Fanart Archive

I still have a lot of stuff to add from Keeners who gave their approval. (Not sure what to do with works of the small number of people who don't respond at all...) To be honest, in my humble opinion, asking for permission from every single artist feels a bit excessive. You're not modifying the work...
