Re: The Crazy Komet

Looks fantastic. Reallt rich colours and textures. Keep up whatever momentum you have, it's always hard (especially with Galaxy).

Re: 10 years on

A place like this forum with such earnest interest in its subject matter is very valuable for those who avail of it, and I would encourage you, and those who engage with the PCKF at a similar frequency to you, to keep in touch. Maybe when I first publically engaged with the Keen community about 15 y...

Re: Buy an official Commander Keen shirt!

I think he means he is imagining what it would be like if they had both.

I presume there weren't actually Keen Merch products back in 1990-1992 era?

Re: Buy an official Commander Keen shirt!

Doesnt look like the world's most fun Tshirt. Just as unofficial keen games have been better than official ones for the last 20 years, likewise I would imagine most of us could make a better iron-on Keen T shirt than this one any day.

I trust you have been to see the "final cut" of 'Apocalypse Now' on the big screen.

Re: Interesting video about CGA

What did you buy? I got a Yamaha PSS-470 dating from 1987. Sure it is slated by many as "amateur" or worse, "a toy". But it sounds fantastic and was only £70 (could have been £30 if I had the time and patience for ebay auctions).

Re: Interesting video about CGA

I love the 8 bit guy!!!! One of my favourite YT channels. In fact I bought a vintage synthesiser based on watching his 8 bit keys channel.

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)?
