Re: Announcement 1 of 2: 'Bounty Hunting Brouhaha' v1.0 is finished!

I was wondering: How come you chose a cuneiform kind of style for the SGA characters? this seems to be a very interesting choice. out of curiosity, can you read Sumerian or Akkadian? I mean, you do know how to display even numeric values. so, where is this reference coming from? Hey, you noticed th...

Re: Commander Keen Remastered (New Game)

I'm not sure if it's accurate to assign blame to individuals for decisions that were probably made by committee, at least not until we know more. In my experience (none of which, I will admit, is in the professional games design industry) if a project is well-executed on a technical level but utterl...

Beta 0.2 is up. Link is here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Xx3KNWt8Qn_8hVZTmk7f83ttMpOt1ebw I have fixed the game-breaking platform issue in level 2, and attempted to fix the riot-cop clipping issue, but I think I may just have to make sure he doesn't show up near 45˚ slopes. Roobar, that is si...

Re: Announcement 2 of 2: Beta testers required for a new Keen 6 mod

Thanks for 'looking under the hood', K1n9_Duk3 ! Your hitbox notes are a potential game changer, no pun intended. As for k6loader.exe, I've got the code pretty much tuned-up and dialed-in, to the point where I don't believe I need any help with it, although I appreciate the offer. The problem is I w...

No deadline! It'd be highly malapropos for me to set deadlines for other people when I'm this bad at meeting the ones I set for myself. :lol

Re: Announcement 2 of 2: Beta testers required for a new Keen 6 mod

I have to admit though, as Rick, I couldn't get past the 1st purple and blue room in the 2nd level, I'm sure its my own ignorance, but there doesn't seem to be anywhere he can go. Hey, thanks for the kind words. There should be a moving platform, that passes in front of the long pole, that will tak...

A guy I went to school with interviewed Andrew Kepple!

Andrew Kepple is a name that should be familiar if you were involved with the Keen community and/or on AlbinoBlackSheep between 2003 and 2005. He is the author of several 'animutations' (remember those?) He has kept a toe or two in the animation game since then, and by the looks of things, his skill...

Re: Happy Keen day! Beta testers required!

Hello again folks, The deadline for suggestions for things which will be fixed in Version 1.0 of this mod is now closed. I will probably drop v1.0 in late May, but I also expect to do one more revision later in the year, so additional suggestions are still welcome. I can't begin to tell you how much...
