Re: Commander Keen Mobile Reboot

Nah man... clearly the release date has been set for Christmas 2092. All we have to do is wait until then! We won't believe our eyes!

Re: OFF TOPIC THREAD: Where derailing the thread is impossible!

A mildly interesting chunk of news relevant to the IT sector upon which our favourite leisure activity (playing a game of Keen) and most of our livelihoods relies. Also relevant to me as it relates to a piece of land mere minutes drive from where I grew up. One single, extremely eccentric farmer, ha...

Re: Sweet pizza

ROFL in my Thwarting Mort mod the point items were referred to in the status screen and helptext as "calories". A little bit bizarre as, in addition to a wide range of foodstuffs, there were also a Beach Ball, a Lute and a Television to name a few. Also, much to my amusement, there was a "Sterling B...

Re: OFF TOPIC THREAD: Where derailing the thread is impossible!

Yeah this is, at the very least, "other keen stuff".

Nice to see the Keen border. You would forget that it is a feature of the game - a moddable one at that - in this era where the game is mostly played on laptops.

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)?

Re: Apogee Hint Sheets....

I remember, before I even had downloaded and played Keen4, finding the Galaxy cheats and exhilaratedly jotting them down on a piece of paper to run home and try them in Keen1... I was bewildered when nothing happened. A slow kid, some might say.

Re: What is Keen Dreams and Galaxy about?

Keen 4 is about being inquisitive

Keen 5 is about being resourceful

Keen 6 is about being thorough

Keen Dreams isnt about anything because dreams are not meant to be interpreted

Re: Your Own Keen Music!

Excellent postings. Have nothing to offer right now. I think I once made a horrible, crudely overdubbed version of Fribbulous Xax music on cassettes when I was ten, on my violin, tin whistle and, uh, some percussion. I doubt it still exists.

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...

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