Re: Avg. Difficulty of Keen1 of series?

I would definitely say Keen 2 is harder than Keen 1. I’d also say it has the best level design in the Vorticons trilogy and some of the best in the series so it’s well worth the trouble :) I’m not sure how Keen 1 is generally perceived here relative to the others. It’s definitely on the easier end o...

Re: 30 Years of Keen Dreams

Good old Keen Dreams I don't remember exactly when I first played it, my dad got it at the same time he got all the non-shareware Keen games (which was a very, very long time ago). It was always kind of the "other" Keen game to me, the one I enjoyed from time to time but never got engrosse...

Re: Keen 4 Most Favorite Level?

Interesting how sharply Crystalus divides opinion so far. It is simultaneously among the most loved and disliked (not to say “hated”) levels based on these results. I’ve always liked it myself, though it’s not as much of a standout to me as some of the other levels such as the pyramids or the ones I...

Re: Keen 4 Most Favorite Level?

Miragia was a no-brainer top pick for me. Like Nospike said, it’s a pretty, unique, interesting level. The idea of a vanishing crystal city in the desert is just so cool and is implemented so well here and I always just enjoy being in this level. I mentioned in the last thread about the secret extra...

Re: Keen 1 Redrawn

Well, I guess yellow is the closest you can get to the Mars sky color with the EGA palette. But I'm not sure if that will look right. There will be 2 versions of this: one that adds new tiles and modifies the levels accordingly, and one that's compatible with all Keen 1 mods that don't change the g...

Re: Keen6: Discovered a glitch

I think I remember this happening to me a long time ago, probably in the same spot. I never found it easily repeatable enough, or repeatable in enough places, to exploit but it’s a neat find nonetheless. Might have to go see if I can make it go again ;) Now we need to find a trick to get past all th...

Re: Keen 1 Redrawn

Oooooh I love the richness of your color choices, amazing how lively the same items look with a bit of clever shading. I'm with Nospike, I always thought Ep. 1's portrayal of Mars was a bit flat. Just your red soil texture by itself fixes that a lot, it looks like actual Martian regolith now instead...

Re: Keen 4 Least Favorite Level?

I guess I can't speak for everybody else that voted for the Chasm of Chills, but...well, the main problem for me is that I don't truly dislike any of the levels in Keen 4 (except maybe the Well of Wishes, and even then it's tempered by my appreciation for the novelty of the level). The secrets in th...

Re: Misconceptions

I always thought that the "waving trees" in Keen Dreams were King Boobus' enslaved children out working the fields and waving to Keen for help. I guess being colorblind meant I never noticed that the children have green heads, although I guess in hindsight they do make for strange-looking ...

Re: Keen 4 Least Favorite Level?

Well, the thing is, I've heard plenty of complaints about both Well of Wishes and Pyramid of the Forbidden on their own and about levels of similar type, so those seemed to be the obvious answers for some of the least popular levels, thus making them the least necessary to include (and possibly nec...

Re: MILDLY NEAT -- For all your random Keenery needs!

I just thought of this mod for the first time in a long while. And now it's turning 18!

Re: Your most memorable level or place in Keen?

It's a reeeaaaaall tough call, because there's a lot of places in all the Keen games that I felt had a really powerful sense of place, and so many I could point to where I would wander round exploring just thinking and speculating about what the aliens used these spaces and buildings and controls fo...

Re: Keen 4 Least Favorite Level?

Like everybody else I have a hard time picking one, let alone three, because...well, I don't like all the levels equally but I certainly don't dislike any of them (I'll come back when we get to Keen 6 :p ) I can, though, point to a few that I never really looked forward to playing as much as others ...

Hey, thanks. It’s awesome to hear the comic has had a lasting influence. Honestly, that means a lot. :o No seriously these are so amazing, and I've also never forgotten about them and just how much fun they were to read.

Re: Neutrino Burst Injector

Shockshunds are bastards and nowhere moreso than in the Neutrino Burst Injector. They're used almost too well here, taking full advantage of their ability to jump down on top of you with little warning pretty much everywhere they appear. For whatever reason though the part of this level that really ...
