Thanks!
Out of curiosity, have you ever ripped it?
It's 20 years old, so who knows how much longer it'll last.

Maybe there's something interesting hidden in the "unused" portions of the disc that Recuva could pick up.

I have no collection of games sadly. Unless a 3drealms Keen CD from circa 2003 counts. It might not be a collector's item now but give it another 20 or 30 years!
That actually is something interesting. Can you scan the box art?

Arachnuts and birds were always the scariest thing in Keen for me as a kid.

Re: Keen Dreams somehow makes it to Nintendo Switch

There's really nothing stopping us from creating a 2D sidescrolling platformer starring an out of shape guy in his late 30s on a pogo stick who travels through space and time, and then putting it on the Switch Eshop. Captain Kid in Goodbye Childhood! Uh yeah right. That's easier to say than to make...

Re: Keen Dreams somehow makes it to Nintendo Switch

How would co-op in Keen even work? Ever heard of Commander Genius? BTW I'm really surprised that they added music in this! I was about to ask if they actually have added something new or changed something and they did. From that video I've watched, I don't think it fits well Keen Dreams. I can't de...

Re: Keen Dreams somehow makes it to Nintendo Switch

I emailed the dev and asked about the possibility of support for mods. Hi Robo, Im happy you enjoyed the release. There was some talk about adding a map editor, shared levels, maybe co-op mode, this is more difficult to achieve on a console due to restrictions in user generated content and network f...

Re: Your most memorable level or place in Keen?

The Bean With Bacon Megarocket.
I don't know why, but giving Keen the ability to hang out at his ship at any time really added to the atmosphere of Keen 4 and 6.

Re: Keen Dreams somehow makes it to Nintendo Switch

I really like the porting job they did.
The music, while a bit bland, goes a long way towards making the game feel complete.

I wonder if there's a way to activate the cheats.

Keen 6 is freaking expensive now!

I own shrinkwrapped copies of Keen 4-6, and periodically I troll eBay looking for boxed copies of Invasion of the Vorticons and Keen Dreams.

Today I found this.

My copy of Keen 6 is now by far the most valuable game in my collection.

Basically yeah, which is what most people suspected (and why nobody bought it).

Re: A good old kick in the pants in Hillville

That sounds like a good question to suggest asking Tom Hall in that one thread.
