Re: The things/places in Keen you were most afraid of?

When I was in grade school, staying the night at a friend's house, his mom told me that I was yelling in my sleep about Vorticons. They definitely creeped me out when I was younger. It's a shame, because I really enjoy them as characters now (and I'm sympathetic to them because of the whole Mind Bel...

Re: Your most memorable level or place in Keen?

Guard Post One. I got Keen1 when I bought the full trilogy of Crystal Caves (the first computer game I full-out purchased, to my knowledge) and thought Billy Blaze handled really poorly compared to Milo Steamwitz. But then I got Keen6 as a gift (I don't recall whether it was birthday or holiday) and...

Re: Planet Of Agony (Keen 1 mod)

KeenRush, I definitely plan to play more--I simply didn't have time in my first foray. I'll be back after I've had a chance to give it a more thorough appreciation! :garg

Re: Planet Of Agony (Keen 1 mod)

KeenRush! This is a cute mod. :) You have a lot of really cool detail tiles and your atmosphere is very easy to read. Nice job with the level design that I've seen so far. I tried each of the four immediately accessible levels a few times. What got me in the two to the left that block your path was ...

Re: Welcome to the migrated PCKF!

Things are... very different. Something like ten-plus years of eye memory for where things are and how things "should" look are going to take some time to overcome! Another round of thanks to Andy Durdin for hosting our creative energies for so many years, and a big huzzah to Fleexy for taking over ...

Hey, someone should write an algorithm, taking into account all the rules of good level-building, to create random levels. That would be interesting. Some beautiful day when I have a bit of spare time, I will create such an algorithm. I love the level generators that were developed for classic game...

I was so bummed when that project didn't pan out. I was on board to have an NPC in the game. :)
