Re: Commander Keen Mobile Reboot

I'm starting to think that it might be worth trying to contact Bethesda to find out if the game was cancelled.
It's been over two months without a peep of news since the reveal.

Anybody know how we should go about doing that?

Re: Commander Keen Petition

searches for the new game on app stores, so there will definitely be visibility Judging by the google trends for "commander keen" after E3, interest vanished almost instantaneously... will interest in the actual mobile game be more sustained (assuming it is as bad as we expect)? No. The formula for...

Re: Commander Keen Mobile Reboot

So a really weird thing happened. I got an ad for this on YouTube. I'm guessing the chances that I would get such an ad were pretty high, as the video was related to E3 and I'm sure the ad algorithm is very aware of my Keen-related search history. That was super trippy though. For as long as I've k...

Re: Commander Keen Mobile Reboot

The website wasn't even up during or immediately after the announcement, so I have little faith that they'll hit the "summer" release window.

Re: Commander Keen Mobile Reboot

So... where is it?

I've never seen a mobile game announced more than a few days before release, and they're usually announced at release date.
Almost all of the people who would've downloaded it on a whim have now either completely forgotten about it or moved on to replaying the original games.

Re: Commander Keen Petition

I'm not sure cancelling the only new Keen game in almost twenty years is a good thing, no matter how bad it is.
Keen mobile is at the very least an opportunity for new people to discover the classic games and potentially a reason for Id to port them to the Switch, PS4 and Xbox One.

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...
