Re: Commander Keen Mobile Reboot

The existing community will not fall out over this. If the PCKF were to get flooded with idiots who think this new game is great, then (given the calibre of this new game) they are likely to lose interest after a fortnight. Thus not exerting a permanent effect on our community. And worst case scenar...

Re: In search for missing fan-games and mods

I think I remember the Spleen birthday version of Shadow Keen. And the red shirt one sounds familiar too.

I will do so when next I get home! It just came in a jewel case, the only artwork is on the CD.

Re: Anyone have Invasion of the Vorticons mail order floppy?

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!

Age of Empires II

Age of Empires II is really the only video game besides Keen that has formed an important part of my life - I would probably rank them equally in importance for me as although there is a lot more playing in AOEII, on the other hand modding Keen was my primary hobby for four of the most formative yea...

Re: Pics of Keen on old systems

Beautiful. I am of the belief that beauty is intrinsic to old things relative to new things. This applies to cars, buldings and music. And I'm pretty sure it applies to computers too. In fact, I would love little more than to open a museum of old computers. 80s PCs might seem unremarkable to today's...

Re: Redrawing Keen 1 sprites

Haha it feels weird to think that I could be considered "OG" by any metric, but on the other hand, I released my first Keen mod when I was 14, and I'm currently 29, so more than half of my life has elapsed since I've been on the PCKF. That's pretty wild. :dead2 Hello! I was a big fan of "The Last M...

Re: Anyone have Invasion of the Vorticons mail order floppy?

Hi springpop and welcome to PCKF. Doesnt look like anybody noticed your topic. I don't own that disk (and lamentably I cannot find the magazine 5 1/4 disk I had Keen1 on). It does sound like a bizzarre thing that happened to you/your disk. Have you any pictures to show us??? It would be interesting ...

Re: Your most memorable level or place in Keen?

Yeah I too had a particular fascination with the Keen6 demo levels presumably because of the hallowed status of Keen6 as a slightly forbidden game. I was particularly fond of the Bloogton Manufacturing level and I think it inspired a lot of my long vertical levels from my mods. I also thought Guard ...
