Re: Goodbye Galaxy Report Card

This is a really fascinating read...I know that I had a few issues getting the various Keens to run on my earliest computers, so I can appreciate the commentary on the use of memory (the game kept telling me I should unload my TSRs, I was 5, I didn't even know what a TSR was). Interesting to hear Mr...

Re: My keen childhood "trauma"

Gargs. Just...gargs. The Vorticons didn't worry me as much, but the Gargs terrified me. The first time I saw one jump a gap I just about leapt out of the chair. I was 4 when I played Keen for the first time and I'm now 34 and they still leave me a little unsettled - always shoot into the gold tunnel...

Re: Playing through Keen on Twitch and Youtube (Recommended Mods?)

Thanks for the suggestion - I have seen Bounty Hunting Brouhaha but haven't played it yet, I'll definitely check it out.

For those interested, I just did Keys of Krodacia on Twitch (see original post) and posted Aliens Ate My Babysitter to Youtube here. Hope you enjoy.

Re: Playing through Keen on Twitch and Youtube (Recommended Mods?)

Well, I plan to do The Universe is Toast trilogy after the main games, so Keys of Krodacia, Dead in the Desert and Battle of the Brains are all definitely on the schedule. I do prefer mods that are more at the same level of difficulty as the original games, so I may steer clear of the exceptionally ...

Playing through Keen on Twitch and Youtube (Recommended Mods?)

For those who are interested, I'm playing Commander Keen on Twitch and Youtube a bit - currently I'm working my way through Zilem's Commander Kylie mods of the original series (I'll be doing 6 next, hopefully next week) and will then move on to the Universe is Toast and then on to other mods. In the...

Re: Commander Kylie

Continuing my adventures through this series on Twitch and Youtube...did Dreams last week, and Oracle yesterday. I want to thank you so much again for this mod - I haven't revisited the series so thoroughly in years, and playing through them all again has been wonderful, I'm really loving it. It's l...

Re: Commander Kylie

Yesterday I finally bit the bullet and played Keen 3, by far the Keen I am worst at. Part 1 is on youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bTomUepBSNc Sounds like you're well due for a well deserved break, Zilem. Thank you, so much, for making these mods: they have gotten me back into playing C...

Re: Commander Kylie

I expected it was something along those lines, no worries. Very glad to be here - I've been playing Keen since we got our first computer in 1991 (I was 4) and this place does already feel like home....

Re: Commander Kylie

I'll be streaming Episode 2 tonight if you're interested... https://www.twitch.tv/monochameleon - I'll be on at about 9.30pm Australian Eastern Daylight Time, which I know is quite an inconvenient time for most countries. I'll drop a youtube link later as well when I'm finished. EDIT: Well, that has...

Re: Commander Kylie

Really loving these mods, and have started playing through them on twitch. Started with Marooned on Mars, which can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVmm5sdRcSM if you're interested.
