Re: Merry Christmas 2021!

This Christmas was pretty relaxed for me, or at least that's what I tried to do. Didn't do much for gifts other than participating in a family "Secret Santa" gift exchange. I got some books. :) Wonderful post, Proyorp! Couldn't have said it better myself! I can tell you put a lot of time i...

Re: My Keen comic translated!

Cool and Coola are two characters whose names might sound strange in english, given that "cool" is actually a native english word, it could be confused with the adjective we all know, but he's the character from the videogame "Cool spot", which iirc was a promotional character o...

Re: Merry Christmas 2021!

Yay Christmas! :pogo I knew this thread was coming, and based off of warm anecdotes of tradition in the other holiday threads from this year I was inspired to write something along those lines. (In fact I would've started the thread myself if I'd finished writing it before you did lol. :p Been worki...

30 Years of "Goodbye, Galaxy!"

30 years ago, the second set of Commander Keen games, entitled Goodbye, Galaxy! , was released. According to Wikipedia , that momentous date was December 15 1991. However, KeenWiki states that Keen 5 was released on December 18 (and puts Keen 4's release earlier, on November 22), citing file modific...

Re: My Keen comic translated!

Wow, who knew the council page could hold his own in a fight? :D I guess this takes place a few years after the canon series then, if Keen is 16 here. That makes sense considering the more mature language etc. I get some real sitcom vibes from that pair Junto and Jonathan. People don't seem to get a...

Re: Dangerous Dave and the Crazy Country

And you're not even gonna mention the fact that Commander Keen appears as a character in this? Dang, Dave.

The meta-surreal humor of this is surprisingly good for an "intentionally bad" comic. In fact I'd say it adds to the effect.

Keen 5 Least Favorite Level?

Which levels do you avoid until necessary? Why? Which ones seem to become more tedious than fun? Level reference: https://keenwiki.shikadi.net/wiki/Keen_5_Levels Unlike the other polls, all of the Keen 5 levels actually fit inside the forum poll size limit, so vote for what you will! I can't think o...

Re: Least favorite Keen game?

Wow, I'm surprised nobody has voted against Keen 6, given how many complaints I've seen about the glitches or the levels. I'd definitely have to say my least favorite is Keen Dreams. For me, I think it's mainly the player control and physics. The game looks so much like the style of Keen Galaxy but ...

Re: Favorite Keen game? Take Three!

It is always such a tough choice for me to choose my favorite episode, mainly between Keen 5 and 6. Keen 6 is where so many of my favorite things about the Keen series are from. The creatures, the characters. The lore. The fascinating dynamic between the Bloogs and the Fleex, an alliance between bra...

Re: The Other Android Duplicate

Some ideas discussed in this thread may actually have some relation to story elements I've planned for Voyage to Veota, but to discuss any of it further could give away too much. I can at least say it's given me a little more inspiration on certain details. Ooooh, cool! :eek That reminds me, I had ...

Hello yes, I am finally responding to this discussion after nearly a year, and boy what a year. :old I have to give a special thanks to TheBigV for posting this for me and doing all the text formatting.

Re: Keen 4 Most Favorite Level?

Again, it's difficult for me to feel atmosphere when I've repeated it a lot, but this is interesting because someone else had mentioned to me recently-ish how Chasm of Chills actually feels cold. I can't remember, but I recall saying something like that in another thread. It was actually someone I ...

Re: Keen 4 Most Favorite Level?

Okay finally got around to actually writing out and cementing my loose thoughts on what levels I most enjoy and why. I've kind of surprised myself by what I've decided on as favorites, because like Xky, Keen 4 is actually one of my least favorite episodes! Isle of Tar. I always forget about Isle of ...
