Re: Return to the Shadowlands

I'd be interested in doing a little music. I've never composed tracks for Keen. But seeing as you mention midi files, these are something I could give a stab at. Are there any particular limitations i.e. number of tracks in the song, instruments, length? If a midi file was provided would that be som...

Re: Commander Keen Collection (floppy disks, mail orders etc)

Very cool item. The fact it contains one of the non shareware episodes automatically increases fascination

Re: Goodbye Galaxy Report Card

This is neat! The original Keen was just a lark Lol it's dominated much of my life. I guess life in general is a lark. I'm glad they stuck with EGA for Keen, even if it wasn't necessarily their preference. I just love all the talk of downloads, it simultaneously connects us to that time and disconne...

Even if Nospike does as you suggest... perhaps it's time you delve into some Vorticons work of your own Nisaba! I can imagine you'll do an excellent job.

Re: Commander Keen in Venture to Vorti Peaks

Also, since you're a seasoned modder yourself. Can you tell me how I'm supposed to get my game listed on keenwiki.shikadi.net? I have an account for the Wiki, but don't appear to be able to crate new pages. Or I could just be missing something? I'm definitely not the best person to ask because alth...

Re: Commander Keen in Venture to Vorti Peaks

Alright so I've given this mod a good play and it definitely deserves to be played for real. I find this really enjoyable. Snow-themed levels have always been to my taste and this delivers on this bigtime. The "keenishness" factor is through the roof - this is real classic keening. The lev...

Re: Commander Keen in Venture to Vorti Peaks

So far I just watched the Youtube and this looks like a fun project. The title screen is beautiful, real classic 80s EGA look. The levels look full of life and bring what looks like a unique fusion of original game art. I always lament over-reliance on original game art and encourage you to consider...

Re: Stupid References are stupid

This is no mere stupid reference is stupid, this is neat! And if not previously posted, deserves a spot in fan art. In fact, I'd wear this on a T shirt

Re: Release of my unfinished mods

The following is a review of sorts with some spoilers. Mura I love this Mura project. First of all the atmosphere laid down by the story sequence/text is fantastic. You've created a character that generates some interest and curiosity from the get-go. I love the smoke and mirrors that went into game...

Re: Release of my unfinished mods

Very excited to try these. Thanks for screengrabs Nisaba. Hopefully, as in my own case, the release of stagnant unfinished mods clears some headspace for new modding projects to take shape.

Re: Heyo, I'm back!

Welcome back! Everyone loves Sunset (even if its creators are highly elusive on the forum!). Would be keen (sic) to see more of your work, if you are so inclined.

Re: Commander Keen Collection (floppy disks, mail orders etc)

I'd still love to see your manual if you can find it, even if coloured/scribbled on. Perhaps if nobody's already done it, you could make a youtube video about it.

(No I'm not just trying to access those copy protection codes :crazy )

This is neat. Probably would have justified its own topic, Nisaba! Do we know anything about the person who made this?
