Re: What Music Are You Listening To?

Listening to lots of heavy duty stuff from back in the day lately... In approximate order of date but not necessarily genre: The Exploited - Punk's Not Dead (1981) Black Flag - Damaged (1981) Discharge - Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing (1982) The Exploited - Troops of Tomorrow (1982) The Exploi...

Re: Happy New Year 2022!

Happy New Year to one and all! Beautiful Auld Lang Syne. Scotland really has earned its association with New Years Day. Personally my ancestry has a significant Scottish and Ulster-Scottish component which certainly doesn't manifest itself as having any living close relatives there but nevertheless ...

Re: 30 Years of "Goodbye, Galaxy!"

Amazing to think of others besides Tom feeling involved enough in the Keen universe (or section of the ID universe) to want to write new Keen material. If PCKF had enough collective financial clout we could bring this about...

Re: Merry Christmas 2021!

Merry Christmas everyone! Enjoying a quieter than usual Christmas Day (though not as quiet as last year which I spent alone). Some relatives were due to drop by for a socially distanced/well ventilated cup of tea but then they had a positive Lateral Flow test in the household so had to stay home. We...

Re: Keen 3 Gold Edition

Keen3 terrain is also fairly ugly looking, a talented pixel artist could definitely improve on them.

Re: Any help contacting an old member of the board?

There's a guy who's probably him on facebook... (if you scroll down the liked pages for long enough you find Commander Keen)

Re: Least favorite Keen game?

I think a poll with only the Vorticons, Galaxy and Aliens episodes (no dreams) might be informative sometime. That said I would still rank Dreams above Keen3. I enjoyed Keen Dreams a lot back in the day. I guess it wasn't disappointing the way Keen3 was, relative to pre existing expectations. Obviou...

Re: What would Billie do different?

I really think the yo-yo could be a vehicle for huge platforming creativity... for enhanced mobility, or as a weapon. It would really fit that toy-oriented Keen1 aesthetic (and by extension one of my favourite classic mods, Kidnapped Keen)

Re: Happy Thanksgiving 2021!

Very interesting. Over in Europe Black Friday has taken off in recent years but seems less store based and more online based than in the US. Personally I have little interest in it and furthermore find it a little unfair on the smaller retailers who don't have the clout in their profit margins to af...

Re: Favorite Keen game? Take Three!

tried to be too ambitious for what the Vorticon engine allowed I definitely get what you're saying about Keen3. I agree about combat - the foes brought absolutely nothing new to the table (apart from Mangling Machine). I agree that engine/RAM limitations will have been a key reason for this. But ou...

Re: Happy Thanksgiving 2021!

I can't get my head around thanksgiving. Do people in America feel a deep yearning for it in the way so many people yearn for Christmas. Would you hold thanksgiving celebrations as a pivotal point in how you get through a year? Would you feel the sort of general dismay when it's over, that one might...
